The Evolution of Vampires


  I'm a sucker for a good vampire book, they can be the old fashioned horror type or the steamy paranormal romance type, but either way I'm bound to enjoy them. Vampires in popular culture seemed to have changed though. Somehow they have evolved from gruesome creatures of the night stalking the countryside in search of hapless victims into the sexy brooding blood-suckers that just need a little love and understanding.
  Face it, they've become the ultimate bad boy. Vampires are portrayed as powerful, nearly indestructible, incredibly sexy, and wealthy (guess all those extra years are spent building a financial empire). It could have came about because it is slightly more believable, I mean if you had tons of people terrified of vampires that would definitely be a threat to their existence. Or it could just be the old "Sex Sells" adage in action.
  Whatever the reason, vampires have changed, and for us paranormal romance fans it's all for the better. Bring on the vampires :)

Some books featuring vampires that we love (in no particular order):

Blurb: For Lily Drake, slaying vampires is easy...Dating them is the hard part.
  Lily Drake is your everyday hard-working single mom…until a gorgeous vampire shows up on her front door who she mistakenly assumes is her blind date for the evening. As one crazy scenario after another unfolds, Lily finds herself falling in love with two vampires, slaying the evil ones, and being prophesied as the savior of the entire undead race.
  Deciding between pizza and Chinese take-out will no longer be one of the hard decisions facing Lily Drake once she is emerged into vampire society. Humanity or immortality? That doesn't hold a candle against this question - which of the two handsome vampire cousins?
  The Life and Death of Lily Drake is not your typical vampire love story. It’s a tale about the humorous mistakes a woman makes simply trying to survive not only life, but the dating scene. How will Lily manage working full-time, taking care of her young son and fighting the undead at every turn?
Lily will have to figure it out, but who better to save the world than a mom?

  1. I also like The Night Huntress Series, Black Dagger Brotherhood, Vampire Academy, Twilight (yeah, I know), and I'm going to say the Fever series cause I'm convinced Barrons is a vampire. :)

  5. Twilight got me interested in ya and blogging..it was a few months after twilight 1 came out. I read all 4 over Christmas vacay that year. I won't lie I adore Twilight. I love vamp academy, the first 5 house of night series, vampire kisses, etc. I got the first 10 in a series by la banks, vampire hunter, I think.
    I am reading the Lily Drake book now. Its frustrating me! In a good way. She's so stubborn! Lolz

  8. Thanks! No problem Fran, I love seeing all of the different vampire posts :) I am looking forward to the Lily Drake book, I'm glad you like it so far.

  9. Not a book, but I still love the vampires in 'The Lost Boys'. It's probably one of my favorite movies. No shiny, shimmery guys there! I think it's more fun for the vamps to be demonic and scary.
