Another vampire series...
Coming Soon reports that producer Michael Preger and Preger Entertainment are set to adapt Christopher Pike's series The Last Vampire for a feature film release. The company is also behind the film version of The Vampire Academy, which will be out on February 14 next year. The book series was originally printed in 1994. It was re-released in 2009 by Simon & Schuster with their Omnibus Imprint Series Edition. It was then renamed Thirst. It debuted on the New York Times (Young Adult) "Children's Bestseller's list" and stayed there for 27 weeks.
Preger said: "In 'The Last Vampire' series we are introduced to an entirely original world, in a universe vastly different from other vampire stories. This legend is born from the more classic genre of Bram Stroker's 'Dracula,' steeped in history, mythic lore and even religious beginnings. Our main character is not only one of the first vampires, she is also believed to be the last surviving - but all that is just page one of this 'roller-coaster,' action-adventure fantasy ride."
Here's a synopsis: 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.
