    Twilight - Stephanie Meyer. The BEST ever.

    She is the best and explains everything so well! I love how she develops her characters and she makes it seem almost real, like you are there instead. Truly a must-read. Everything is timed perfectly and I love the style it's written in. It's mostly made for teen readers it seems, but I would still recommend it to anyone. The main characters are Isabella Swan and Edward Cullen. He's a vampire and she is not. Basically, it's a romance that wound never happen.

    I haven't read any other vampire stories, but even if this one isnít the best, it's still a great book.

    Hey People,
    I am new to these forums but one of my favorite spin on vampires is Light at the End of the Tunnel by Skip&Spector. It is a good read.

    Dracula -- Bram Stoker
    Fevre Dream - George R.R. Martin
    I am Legend - Richard Matheson

    Those are the only real vampire books I've read so far.. I was looking into pirate books a few days ago and found a book called Vampirates: Demons of the Ocean by Justin Stomper.. Looks like fun

    The Vampire Earth series is also something I think I'd enjoy.. those are by E.E. Knight

    I liked seeing vamps like St Germaine interact with those of other authors.

    Unhappy

    I didn't find Dhampir that fantastic, sorry!
    It just didn't have enough action for me, it had mystery and the characters were fine, but there wasn't enough vampire stuff to suit me.

    I want to say I'm not a fan of the romanticized vampire. I feel this was done to hook women readers into the genre. Thanks Anne Rice!

    I like nasty, mean and evil vampires. The way they were intended.

    Salems Lot - King
    They Thirst - McCammon
    The Traveling Vampire show - Laymon
    The Last Vampire - Wright
    The Stake - Laymon
    Bite - Laymon
    This Symbiotic Fasination - Jacob
    I Am Legend - Matheson
    Dracula - Stoker

    Hi, I am hoping that you or someone else may be able to tell me this book, It is quite old maybe late 70s to mid 80s about a chess playing vampire who is telling his life story to someone(bit like the author?) I am trying to find this book again as I enjoyed it back then but forgotten the book title,author and many other details. Any help would be much appreciated.

    Best Vampire Books

    I'm reading L.A.Banks Vampire Huntress series with Damali Richard's as the main character - i'd recommend it
    Sunshine by ...... - i'm sure someone will tell me who wrote it - this yabbered on about a family bakery for pages - so it wasn't the greatest beginning but the parts with the vampy in it were the best
    Dark Demon by Christine Feehan - this was really good with plenty of enemies and fighting. her life mate was cool too.

    Anyone else read these?

    Sunshine is by Robin McKinley, Tally. It's had mixed comments on the boards here, which is what you seem to be saying here. (Try putting McKinley and Sunshine into the search engine and you'll see what we mean).

    Sunshine was a fantasy book of the month too. You might try looking there.

    I read a part of a Christine Feehan book and it was so repulsive, I couldn't finish it. It was a while ago and I have no idea of the title. She seems to come from the 'rape is fun', and 'no really means yes' old school of romance writing, that just happens to have vampires. Not for me.
