The History of Vampires

In Depth

There's nothing more bewitching than a story of dark love, tortured souls, and supernatural creatures forced to walk the earth for eternity. If you love taking a bite out of the juiciest romance and adventure tales, here, in no particular order, are some choices that are bound to satisfy your thirst.

Coming in at #1, we have John Matsui's "Late Bite." In Toronto, the law isn't interested in killing vampires. Instead, they've established a rehabilitation program for blood-drinkers like Dragul Mangorian, one of the last remaining creatures of his kind on Earth. After standing trial, he becomes a media darling and the talk of the town. But there's an unexplained streak of murders turning the city upside down, and there are still those who believe that someone like Dragul can't change. This thriller is full of surprises that will keep you guessing.

At #2 is "For the Blood" by Debbie Cassidy. Life on Earth has gone feral. The Fangs and the Claws, once human allies, have now been taken captive by the light of an never-setting full moon. Eva, a young girl trying to stay alive, just wants to keep her head down. But with suitors coming for her from either side of the supernatural spectrum, it won't be long before she has to choose. Will she join the bloodthirsty Fangs, or the brutal Claws?

For #3, we get Terri L. Austin's "Dispelled." Holly James is a specialist. She's able to take away the magic from any being, be it werewolf or demon, witch or vampire. This makes her a crucial asset to her community, a place full of creatures only partially in control of their own powers. In exchange for help with finding her missing mother, Holly will have to help out one seriously sexy yet arrogant sorcerer.

At #4 is Irina Argo's "Vampire Elite." Ever since anyone can remember, the Amiti have been forced into captivity by Vampires, serving as their source for superior, magic-tinged blood. But the few who have escaped servitude are plotting a rebellion that will leave the world free of their bloodsucking foes forever. It's up to Arianna, the daughter of the previous Queen, to save her people from extinction and free the world from tyranny forever.

In the #5 spot is "Forever Wicked" by Nina Bangs. After Sparkle throws some harsh words at her lover Ganymede, she assumes it's the end of their love affair. She can't take back what she said, and her vampiric lover doesn't forgive easily. But when an enemy from their past comes to take advantage of the growing rift between them, the two lovers know they have to band together once more to stop evil forces from overtaking the Castle of Dark Dreams.

Coming in at #6 is "Royally Entangled" by Catherine Banks. For many people, it's hard enough to make one relationship work. Gamer Jolie is tasked with keeping four romantic entanglements afloat at the same time. When she moved to the royal land of Jinla, she didn't expect to be courted by four princes who are concerned with her safety, especially in the face of a new vampiric threat. But Jolie wants more. Can she stay with the men of her dreams without sacrificing her independence?

For #7, we find Melanie Nowak's "Born to Blood." Allie was used to living in a world full of vampires, but she never counted on becoming one. With her best friend dating the son of a notorious vamp slayer, Allie quickly finds herself in the crosshairs. Can she truly live in the human world and still cavort with her new bloodthirsty kin?

At #8 is Tracey Sinclair's "A Vampire in New York." The City That Never Sleeps should be the perfect place for Barry, a meek young vamp who recently moved to NYC. Little does he know that he's about to meet the stranger of his dreams in Laclos, a dashing, debonair Dracula type who moves through New York's dangerous underworld. This quick read brings danger and thrills in a compact format.

At #9 is "One Thousand Monsters" by Kim Newman. In 1899, all vampires are banished from England. Seeking refuge, a few stragglers head to a small section of Tokyo designated by the Emperor as the one welcome place for supernatural creatures in the country. But the European immigrants are still hunted by the outside world, and they're going to need to uncover the secret of Yokai Town before it destroys them all.

Finally, at #10, is "A Hero's Death" by Rachel McClellan. Aris has no faith in justice. Not the kind provided by the law, anyway. He's seen his beloved city bend to dark influences and fall to ruin while the cops stood by powerless. Not only that, he's got a personal vendetta to take out on Victor, the psychopath who killed his parents. To defeat his foe, he knows he can't just be an ordinary hero in the face of extraordinary evil. He has to become a monster on the level of Victor himself to get the job done.
