Based on Christopher Pike's Young Adult book series that appeared in print in 1994. It was re-released in 2009 by Simon & Schuster with their Omnibus Imprint Series Edition re-titled, "Thirst." Christopher Pike's epic legend of "Sita" introduces a character prone not only to great spiritual beliefs and human-like compassion, but also brutal and horrific acts of retribution - in a world rife with ancient secrets, supernatural miracles and unimaginable peril. From the dark depths of her ancient origins to her present day chameleon-like existence, Sita's world is very different than what most humans perceive. She is at once captivating and beguiling, due in part to her personification as a beautiful, intelligent, innocent appearing, contemporary girl - who is in reality a 5000-year-old predator.
