Review by Amy

Intended age:  YA                         
Age of main character:   She has lived for centuries, so she poses anywhere from 18-30

A New York Times best seller, Thirst is a blood dripping vampire novel about Alisa Pern, also know as "Sita". Alisa has been in control of her urges for the five thousand years she has been a vampire. She feeds but does not kill, and she lives her life on the fringe to maintain her secret. But when her creator returns to hunt her, she must break her own rules in order to survive.
Her quest leads her to Ray. He is the only person who can help her; he also has every reason to fear her. Alisa must get closer to him to ensure her immortality. But as she begins to fall in love with Ray, suddenly there is more at stake than her own life.

Sexual Content:




-Major gore, blood, murder and explicit details of it all. Throats are pulled out, heads ripped off, brain matter often splattered around. 
 What's my opinion?

I would not allow any of my children to read this book. I'm appalled that it was written for teen/young adults. Adults would like this book if they like vampire novels with lots of intense action and romance. 

I would give this book a 5 out of 10
