I'm kind of annoyed with vampire or werewolf books. They're so mainstream and it's hard to find a good one, anyway.
I know. I used to think of all the vampires in TV, books and movies as some sort of triumphant comeback, but it's starting to get a tad ridiculous.
But if you're looking for a good vampire book that isn't of the "Twilight" series (which is actually quite good, if a little drawn-out and unrealistic, even for a fantasy) or isn't part of the whole neo-vampire-romanticism, I would go with Anne Rice's "Vampire Chronicles". It's a classic. Old-school vampire time!
And the soul underneath... Is it all that remains?

I'm not a big vampire, though I haven't completely hated the books by Poppy Z. Brite I've read in that genre. My favorite book by her, however, is "Drawing Blood". It took place in a world where vampires exist, but I don't recall anything but cameos from characters from her other books. It's also the only book I've read from her that isn't overly gloomy.
I can't seem to remember who wrote it, but there was also a YA book called "Dark Angel" that I was entertained for a little while by as well.

"Lord of the Vampires" is an awesome book,it's from the trilogy "The Diaries of the Family Dracul" by Jeanne Kalogridis,its the last one in it but its awesome,abraham van helsing kills vampires(obviously)and the more he kills the stronger her gets and as he gets stronger vlad tsepesh gets weaker,so he calls on elizabeth bathory for help and its this whole...battle against all of them and its just...wow...I don't know...it's great though.
