So basically they're just doing the horizontal tango nonstop?
One of the best vampire series that I've read are the Chronicles of Vladimir Todd by Heather Brewer. Heather Brewer is a local author who I've never even heard of until I attended a Reading in Our Schools charity event.
The series itself is about a teenage boy who was born a vampire. His parents both died in a fire so he lives with his Aunt and doesn't really know anything about other vampires or the vampire society... Until two vampires come to town one to kill him and one to save him and he needs to figure out which vampire does what before getting killed. All while surviving high school.
If you like Lupe Garous read Terry Spear she is phenomenal
Vamps read the Cat and Bones series by Jeaniene Frost soooo amazing!!!!
I also agree with Amrstrong's Bitten and Taken.... that whole women of the otherworld series is pretty good and Kim harrison is pretty rad as well... will have to go through the rest of my collection and see what I can come up with...
Edit: the top two are uhm Harlequin Romance is if that makes sense.... not a good read if one doesn't like the steamier side of fantasy....
I got excited when I saw this thread and then I realized I started it. Way back when I was a little bitty newbie around here.
It's not a book, but I just saw the trailer for the movie Dracula Untold yesterday and it looks pretty good! A very different take on the story, I think?
I loved Brain McGreevy's book Hemlock Grove. If you've seen the Netflix series, this is where it comes from. It was supposed to be a trilogy, but I read somewhere that he decided not to write any more books. They are continuing the show though, and he is involved in that, so I guess the story is just continuing with the show. But the first book is wonderful (almost word for word with the first season on Netflix). I really liked the way he portrayed vampires and werewolves. I wish he would write more.
I watch the tv series; pretty entertaining
The Parasol Protectorate by Gail Carriger makes me happy. It's Victorian, steampunk and well written. I devoured them! Contains vampires, werewolves and science!
The Monster Hunter septology by Larry Correia. Five of 7 books are out right now.
Hi I need help finding a book! A friend of mine read a book about vampires when he was about 16 (1995-ish?) but he can't remember the name of it and it's driving him nuts! He can only remember bits and pieces. There was a guy who was involved in a car accident and was saved because a vampire bit him, later on there was a girl skinny dipping in a lake, and he remembers a tunnel leading down inside the earth. I know those are very vague details but any help would be appreciated!
Does he know if it was a YA or regular adult fiction book?
Why am I not surprised the skinny dipping bit is basically the only part he remembers
I've only read a few chapters of the first book so far, but I think I'm going to like this series. It is already highly entertaining.
I have been in love with the vampire world for years. After my grandfather got me reading (starting with harry potter) I fell in love vampires, when I was still in school I read a lot, starting with Vampire diaries, and I never had the thought of documenting which books I liked and now finding it hard to remember the books.
I only recently found one "Blood Sinister" by Celia Rees, and now I just need help with finding the others, the main one I'm looking for is a trilogy I believe blood was used in all 3 titles but not always as the first word. it was set in a future where a young lady was forced to leave, or she could have been exiled. she meets a werewolf pack with the alpha female wants to slowly weeded out the werewolf gene, I believe it turned out she had an affair with the main characters ex boyfriend who I think turned into a computer. there is also I think it was a vampire scientist who has an angel son who falls in love with the main character. Honestly cant remember much else and I cant seem to find anything and it bugs me I cant remember. Would have been published before 2005.
I enjoyed Anita Blake series, well what I have read of it, even though I found it very frustrating on how long it took to get Anita over her reserved and prudish manner.
Wont lie I fell in love with twilight, though I liked it and read all before it became massively popular then the movies killed it for me.
I enjoyed the Vampirate series by Justin Somper, though haven't read the last one.
I also enjoy rereading Vampire kiss series by Ellen Schreiber. Takes me back to that 16 year old self who though love was forever and hurt only came in the form of a paper cut.
I have loved many other popular series and then I have found some rare gems. Like "Dracula Vampira: Van Diemen's Legend" by an Australian author Jay Gloria who mixed fiction in with some Australian History. Also "peeps" by Scott Westerfeld.
If you can find it id recommend Jeanne Kalogridis' Diaries of the Family Dracul series
Expands upon the Dracula story and does it quite well, ive only read the 3rd book at the moment but have the first two to read (didnt realise it was a trilogy till I started it).
Yeah, Mercy Thompson and Alpha and Omega for nice wolf books. I prefer the Mercy books, but am planning to by the 4th Alpha and Omega book soon.
I really liked Ilona Andrews' (pseudonym for a husband-and-wife writing team) Kate Daniels Series. I also like the smaller spin-offs they've written, like Gunmetal Magic and the shorts about Dali and Jim.
I've read some others as well, but struggled a bit to get through them. I will though.
I buy most of these either at a fantasy books shop or on Kindle.
Also, I thoroughly enjoyed the stand-alone novel, The Vampire's Beautiful Daughter by S.P. Somtow when I was younger.
I really enjoyed these books. They are so nice different.
But I also don't know if they were translated.
Just saw this thread. Nobody mentioned the Morganville Vampire Series so far. I enjoyed these books a lot.
The Anne Rice series will always be one of my favourite series. I would pick up a copy of "Interview with the Vampire" and give it a try if you haven't already. It is actually much better than the Brad Pitt / Tom Cruise movie.
