I don't know how my son got interested in vampire novels but he did. Probably because he has read just about everything else since he is such a voracious reader. Anyway, he passed the books on to me and I got hooked. Just to two of the series. One became a show on HBO, Trueblood and the other came out with the first movie of the sequel called Twilight. I used to think vampires were just part of legends but now they have crawled their way out of the crypts to become part of the everyday world demanding equal rights with the living. Synthetic blood has made it possible for them to exist without requiring human hosts. So if you are looking for books that will leave their marks on you by grabbing you by the jugular, this blood's for you!
