Lynsay Sands has a Wonderful vampire Series - only there is a "twist" to the typical vampire story - not bloodsucking demons!!!

Read Children of the Night. I opened it and read it cover to cover without stopping. It was great! It was more like a story with a scientific explanation of these vampires, rather than sci-fi turning to bats and stuff.

You cant lose with Anne Rice. She is great. I have quite a few of her books. If you might be interested send me a PM. I think I have a few more but I'm not sure. I am an avid book reader.

froggy can probably give you a bunch of ideas---PM him. He reads those a lot as well as the mytery type of James Patterson and Patricia Cornwell and Margaret Weiss/Tracy Hickman (sci-fi)

My brother likes R.A. Salvatore as an author.

a friend of mine swears by the Laurell K Hamilton books - "bloody bones" is one of them..
i haven't read a vampire book in ages biggrin.gif

BLOODY BONES by Laurell K. Hamilton.
Anita Blake; detective, zombie raiser, vampire hunter, and girlfriend of a werewolf, is up to her ears in vampire power struggles, doublecrosses, dead bodies, and fairie magic in the latest book in the Anita Blake Vampire Hunter series. In case you missed the earlier books in the series, all five are well written in a fast paced and gritty style. Check out the first four titles (they don't need to be read in any particular order): Guilty Pleasures, The Laughing Corpse, Circus of the Damned, The Lunatic Cafe.)

Well first and foremost Lysnsay Sands is a Romance Writer so there will be smutt and she is hilarious so it's funny smutt tongue.gif But basically it's a story of a Vampire family who finally find love. Her take on vampires is that they are a "higher" race of people from the City of Atlantis. They created "nanos" that are injected in the blood stream and then "fix" all problems in the body. The "nanos" feed off of blood and since the nanos are constantly working to protect the body from all injury (germs, sunlight (Sunlight doesn't kill them but since Sunlight "injures" the body the nanos work to fix that), age, etc.) then the vampires have to drink blood to feed their nanos. They don't "bite" anymore now they use bloodbanks!!! It's actually quite a cute series not dark or scary so if thats what you like - I won't suggest the book - but if you want a "light" read that's cute it's a great series!

I read ALOT of vampire novels while working at B&N. I made it through the first few of the Anne Rice series, but it lost me with Queen of the Damned.
L.A. Banks has a bestselling series - I haven't read it, but it flew off of the shelves there.
Laurel Hamilton is fantastic - that one was also a big seller.
The Twilight Series flew off of the shelves also, but it was more of a teen crowd rather than adults (it's in the Teen section, actually)
There's another really good series that I actually own, but a friend has them. I can't remember the name or the author ( rolleyes.gif ), but I read the entire series in two days. I'll see if I can figure out what it was.


Oh....this made me miss working at B&N. sad.gif laugh.gif

Check out the Nora Roberts series called "Circle Trilogy" I loved it.

For romance, y'all can also try the 'Dark' series by Christine Feehan.

For comedy, try the 'Betsy the Vampire Queen' series by MARYJANICE DAVIDSON
I read recently that "most of today's reporters and journalists are no better than used car salesmen. When they're working, you just know they're lying to you." My first thought is that's an insult to used car salesmen!

I love Anne Rice.. she also has a set of books that are about witches that I loved! The Witching Hour is the first one of that set. When I finished that book, I went right out that minute and purchased the next one!!! I think there are 3 in the set. Of course there is Interview with a Vampire, The Vampire Lestat, etc., they are great books, the movies did not do them justice and left out a lot that was in the books.
