LadyVampire's Halloween Giveaway Day 2
Contest Day Two
It’s day two of my contest and I had a great time yesterday reading everyone’s stories of their ghostly encounters. If you are new to my blog, feel free to go back and post your ghost story as there is still time to enter all the contests until the end of the week.
Today I’d like to talk about vampires. Specifically books with vampires. Myself, I like paranormal romance more then the horror books. It’s nice to see that authors are finally casting vampires as the good guys instead of the evil villain lurking in the dark. Not that I mind vampire villains, but in the past villainous is all they were cast as. Now though, I have a great many favorite authors who have helped pave the way for paranormal heroes.
My first paranormal romance was “Circus of the Damned” by Laurell K Hamilton. I loved the cover of the book and bought it. Instantly it hooked me and I went back and bought all the other books by LKH. Thankfully “Circus of the Damned” was the newest book out back then but now Anita Blake’s series stretches over the ten book mark. Yes, I love Jean Claude. How could I not? Everyone falls in love with him in the pages of the Anita Blake series. But he is one of many vampires I now enjoy in a series.
There is Tanya Huff’s Blood series and her vampire Henry Fitzroy. Jeaniene Frost’s Night Huntress series and her vampire Bones. Kim Harrison’s Hollow series and her vampire Ivy. Karen Chance’s vampire Mircea from her Cassandra Palmer series. Etc. I could go on for a while here as I have a favorites list a mile long. But I want to hear your favorite. What vampire hero, book or series is your favorite? Have more then one? Feel free to list as many as you like.
Please feel free to comment to this post until October 11th when the contest closes. One entry per person per day per post. This contest is limited to US citizens only although everyone is invited to comment.
