Vampire books that don’t revolve around romance?? lolVampire books that don’t revolve around romance?? lol Corina #recommend #romance
The romance was a vital part of this one.
But it’s not a a cheesy romance like others
Ok.. I haven’t wished to disappoint myself with the others.
If you’re gonna read vampires, you gotta start with the original vampire story, romance or not
Christopher Moore’s vampire trilogy!
Interview with the vampire
Covenant with the vampire (warning adult incest)
I really liked “Covenant with the Vampire.”
@Meredith did you read the whole series?
@Christine Yes. Loved it!
@Meredith arkady was one of my first fictional character “loves”.
It’s a teens/YA series but the Chronicles of Vladimir Tod
Lost Souls by Poppy Z. Brite is dark, gritty and somewhat disturbing at times. It’s different, which is what I liked about it.
Nice to hear from another Poppy Z. Brite fan. “Lost Souls” was the first book of hers I read.
Brian Lumley. Necroscope.
The orginal Dracula by Bram Stoker. I read this for the first time the other day. It has some couples in it but not romance
All of Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles. Too many to list but start with Interview With The Vampire.
The Strain trilogy.
You looking for a How To?! LOL
I Am Legend
Stephen King’s Salom Lot
Guillermo del Toro’s The Strain Trilogy
The Strain is soo good. One of my favorite thriller books. That book kept me hooked throughout the entire trilogy
33AD by David McAfee or The Crypt of Dracula by Kane Gilmour
Vampire$ Novel by John Steakley the basis for John Carpenter’s Vampires movie
I couldn’t get into that book
Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter was a better read than I anticipated.
Ava Delaney Series by Claire Farrell so far doesnt revolve around romance. But I have only read Thirst and Taunt.
Try ‘The Passage’ by Justin Cronin. First book in a trilogy. That should keep you going for a while
They Thirst. Fevre Dream.
I’m following as I’m interested too. I’m so tired of either the Twilight rewrites and copies, and the stories that have the “I’m a __fill in the blank__ and my love interest is a __vampire/werewolf/shapeshifter/etc__ and they really piss me off however I’m now finding myself attracted to them” and then mix in some either really sweet and sappy love stuff that would fit in a Harlequin romance, or is filled with teenage angst. If you’re going to put love/romance in there, don’t make it cringy (or is just so badly written that it’s almost embarrassing) …. or don’t put it in there at all. If it’s in the background and doesn’t really figure in or show up in the story line – fine …. however please PLEASE ….. no more Edward/Bella wanna-be’s ……
Trust me, you won’t get that with David McAfee’s 33AD series.
A vampire assassin kills a vampire that had just turned Christian. Except he also kills a Roman family in the process. A Roman Legionaire assassin begins to track him.
Their initial fight – one in which the Legionaire gives the vampire more trouble than he should be able to – binds them… and leads to them fighting across the decades of the first century through several of its major events. 😀
The Thirst Series, Companions of the night
Charlie Huston has a series set in Brooklyn, there’s also the fat vampire series by Johnny truant and bill the vampire series by rick Gualtieri.
The Lesser Dead
by Christopher Buehlman
David McAfee’s series. Start with 33 AD.
ann rice vampire chronicle
Carrion Comfort – Dan Simmons
The Golden – Lucius Sheppard
Anno Dracula – Kim Newman
Good Friday – Karl Wagner
Any Jim Butcher “Harry Dresden” books – he has an interesting spin on his vampire and fae characters
Christopher Pike’s Thirst, also known as The Last Vampire series. It’s like vampires meets private investigator, meets Hindu religious culture, meets tomb raider. It’s completely unique.
Let the Right One In
Raven loft series , I Strahd is the First book, knight of the Black Rose is the second.
Salem’s Lot by Stephen King.
