Hey Anna :)

You're looking for books that are from a vampire's view if I'm not mistaken?

The Twilight series by Stephanie Meyers is decent. I found it a bit to prepubescent chick lit-esque for my own personal taste, but it was still fun to read.

Check out pretty much anything by Anne Rice. The Vampire Chronicles is a safe bet (Interview With The Vampire, Queen Of The Damned etc), but she has written a lot of other things as well. She's my favourite author by far. ;)

Then there's Vampire: The Masquerade, if you can find them. Excellent read, all of them.

Note: Although I haven't had the time to read it yet, Merrik brings together The Vampire Chronicles and The Mayfair Chronicles, so I suggest you read as many of them as possible before reading Merrik for best result.

I can write all day about this but I will leave it at two suggestions. I read Legion last month and liked it. A different bend on the story, but not too much about hunting. I think it is a novella.

My favorite Vampire series is by Brian Lumley. It is called the Necroscope series. The first eight are the best, but his true talent doesnt peak until he talks of the vampire world in book three, The Source. My favorites in his series are the 6th, 7th, 5th, & 3rd. Respectively Blood Brothers, The Last Aerie, Deadspawn, and The Source. Look him up, he is a British Author. His Hero series wasnt that bad either. The Necroscope series is a breath of fresh air. Although I like some of Anne Rice and I can appreciate other books of her, she is much to weak and fluffy for my taste in horror. I hope this helps and please let me know if you end up liking them.

I havent come across too many people that have read the series and I think that series is extremely underrated for that matter. All of the books are good, but if you started like me and picked up the 6th book, you would be a little lost, he isnt the best at presenting a back story, besides, the main characters change on that book.

i liked the mayfair chronicles but i love stephenie meyer's twilight series above all else. I've had eclipse on request for days and i feel like i'm on caffeine withdrawal without it!

VampChick, a word of advice - if you don't like "Interview With a Vampire", don't give up on the series right away. I hated that book, but ended up liking all the others.

I thought the Vampire phase would disappear when "Hot Topic" went mainstream.

Guess I was wrong.

Vampires are so trite.

:joker::joker: Ok I have 2 thanks to give out.

~~~~~~~The first one is to Commal. Eclipse is so worth the wait, and must i say, I am getting very upset that Bella hasnt become a vampire yet, they have been holding it off for the first three books! Darn. Anyhow if I were you, i wouldnt wait for the library i would run out and buy it like i did.
~~~~~~~~~The second one is to Athlynne: Thanks for that, cause normaly if i dont like the first book of a series i tend to never read the others. That is going to help in case i think the first one stinks too. Which book are you on, or have you read them all?
~~~~~~~~Thanks to both of you, and another thanks to Writerdude for giving me the series.
Post again soon!

I've read all the Vampire Chronicles. "Memnoch the Devil" was my favorite, followed by "Queen of the Damned". If you've seen the movie of the latter, dear gods, don't judge it by that. It was like someone who's never read any Anne Rice tore out a hundred random pages from the book and made the movie from them.

If you like Rice's style, I'll recommend my favorite of hers to you, "Servant of the Bones". No vamps, but supernatural stuff, as always.

Definitely check out the Mayfair books too. Not much vampage, but they take place in the same world, so to speak, and some characters are in both series.

I dislike Rice. Try Kerrelyn Sparks, Love at Stacks for a romance type, The Vampire de Sade series, or Laurell K Hamilton's Anite Blake series. The Anita Blake series was also turned into a comic book. For a more demonic vampire, try I Am Legend or Salem's Lot.

Salem's Lot is some crucial stuff. I saw the movie and read the book. I really don't care much for vampires in literature, but that is some dank shit.

Yeah, Salems' Lot is the best vampire book in my opinion.
I have a friend who used to be a real gang member and really hurt people however who swears by the Anne Rice books. My sister likes them too.
