This week I'm highlighting: Unique Vampires
I love love love this series. In this, there are 3 races of vampires - Moroi, Dhampir, and Strigoi. Dhampir is my favorite :D I just love that they aren't just vampires. They are an entire society all on their own. They have elemental powers (Moroi), super awesome kick-butt abilities (Dhampir), and undead creepiness (Strigoi). If you haven't read this series, I HIGHLY recommend it.
LJ Smith's Night World
This is another vampire series where the vamps seem to live in their own society. Hence the name "night world". In this series, vampires and other supernatural beings are finding their soul mates and turning against the laws of the Night World... My favorite book in this series is probably Soul Mates, in which Hannah keeps having flashbacks to her past lives where she is hunted by the evil Maya, but always saved from her true love.
Stephenie Meyer's Twilight
Hey, hate on this series all you want. But you have to admit these vamps are unique. They sparkle (what other vamp does that?? Huh?!), they only drink blood from animals (well...the Cullens do anyways), and they also have supernatural abilities. This book was the very first vampire book I've read. The first young adult book, actually. So, I owe a lot of my reading/blogging career to this series.
Alyson Noel's Evermore
Well, this isn't really a series about vampires. They are immortals. But in the beginning of the series you think they are vampires because they drink a red liquid. I think that is what is unique about this series. They are sort of like vampires, but not. You know?
Claudia Gray's Evernight
This is probably the best series I've read all year. What I love about Evernight is I had no clue that some people were vampires in the beginning. About half way through the book, the bomb is dropped and all of a sudden everyone is a vampire and you're so shocked! These vampires are unique because most of them grow up learning in a private school full of vampires, and this time humans are allowed to the school...
