I don't know if I am suppose to be posting this here, but anyway....I need advice on some good vampire (fiction) novels.  I would really like ones set in the US, I am reading one now set in Europe and it isn't bad but I am not into all the lords, ect...

I read one of the books in the Southern Vampire series and it just didn't pull me too much.  I have also read the Circle Triology by Nora Roberts.

Thanks for any suggestions

Danielle - I'm not much for vampires, but I did read a series many years ago, that I enjoyed.  There were three books by Les Daniels (The Black Castle, The Silver Skull, and Citizen Vampire - I also see that they were issued as an anthology:  The Don Sebastian Vampire Chronicles)

What I remember most is that Don Sebastian was described as "the vampire who was horrified by man" ...

I don't even know if they are still available.  I had one on my shelf, but it's gone ....

J. R. Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood series is currently my favorite.  The books are:

  1. Dark Lover
  2. Lover Eternal
  3. Lover Awakened
  4. Lover Revealed
  5. Lover Unbound

You will probably have to put them on your wish list.  They're very popular.

When I read the 1st of the Southern Vampire series, I wasn't that impressed either.  It was a long time before I read the 2nd one and it was much better - give them a chance, many more interesting vampires than Bill come along.

Diana - Bill, not interesting?!?!? Hurumph!!!! lol I LOVE Bill!

Seriously, the series is a good one but then I was hooked from the first book.

Gerry Bartlett writes a cute series too. Only two so far but they're good. Same with Michelle Beardsley - only two so far but those were THE best!

I loved the Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice but I have not ever been able to get into any others. Have you read Anne Rice
