Another good vampire series?

  1. completely forgot about Christine Feehan's Carpathian Dark Series - she makes the distinction between "Carpathians" (an old race of long-living people with telepathic abilities who drink blood and are burned by sunlight) and "vampires" (Carpathians gone over to the dark side). It's a really good series, starts with Dark Prince - about the Prince of the Carpathians falling in love with a human. The world building is good as are the characters and there's an underlying plot line that runs through all the books. The most recent books in the series (there are 25+) are a little nauseating in their use of the "Carpathian" language (aka random foreign words thrown in) but the plot line keeps me reading.
     
  2. After the first 6, I became bored. She is very predictable. It got to the point where it seemed she just decided to "insert name here" and make a different book. I don't know if she changed the formula in later books, but I didn't have the patience to find out.
     
  3. Yes! In total agreement. I was far too enthusiastic after reading the third book that I decided to buy a whole chunk of the series... unfortunately I ended up ditching the series after the 6th book because the books become mindless and unreadable.

    The Night Huntress series is cute. Christine Feehan's Carpathian series was not for me; far too cheesy. Susan Sizemore also has vampire offerings, but they didn't really do it for me either. I did like J. R. Ward. She has a distinctive style which is fun to read (the first and second books are the best). I quite liked Vampire Academy. The Anita Blake series is trashtastic.
     
  4. The Midnight Breed series by Lara Adrian is pretty good. It's very graphic as far as sex and violence, but there's a lot of action and drama.

    There are a couple of spin-offs from the Jeanette Frosts Night Huntress series, that are pretty good.

    Most of the supernatural books I read are pretty heavy on the violence (with some sex added in). :smile:
     
  5. Mjd, Lara adrain, jr ward, laurel hamilon, Kim raye, and just started Thirst by pike. I cannot put it down
     
  6. I liked the Christopher Pike books but beware - they go a bit weird and sci-fi at the end.
     
  7. I haven't read any Christopher Pike books since I was in high school. Now I am curious and will to check out his books.
     
  8. If you're a history buff, you might like Chelsea Quinn Yarbro's Saint-Germain chronicles. Basically it's the title character living throughout various times in history (Ancient Rome, WWII, etc.) Her novels are very well-researched for historical accuracy. You don't have to read them all, and you don't have to read them in order, either! Hotel Transylvania is my absolute favorite.
     
  9. I love all these suggestions! Thanks for taking the time :smile:
     
  10. Not a series (yet!) but just read Sunshine by Robin McKinley and really enjoyed it.
     
  11. The Vampire Acadamey By Richelle Mead
    The Darke Academy By Gabrielle Poole
    Evernight By Claudia Gray
    The Mortal Instruments By Cassandra Clare
    The Infernal Devices By Cassandra Clare
    The House Of Night Series By Kristen & P.C. Cast
    The Vampire Diaries By L.G. Smith
    The Night World Series By L.G. Smith

    I don't know other ones atm because im not near my bookcase xD

    Some of them arent all about vampires but have vampires in them.

    EDIT*
    The Morganville Vampires By Rachel Caine
     
  12. IMO, the House of Night series is terrible. Of course I've read them all. I've read that P.C. Cast has signed on for a 12 book deal, so I'll be reading them all. But it's a poorly written series and highly annoying. :p
     
  13. But aren't those Manga?
     
  14. I have to say I havent really enjoyed The House of Night series as much as some of the others. xD
     
  15. My daughter likes the Blue Blood series by Melissa de la Cruz.
    Anyone here read it?
