Have you seen the trailer for Breaking Dawn: Part 1? If you just can’t wait for November, here are a few other vampire stories to help you pass the time.
- Blue Bloods—Melissa de la Cruz. Some people have everything—money, status, fancy NYC digs…and a vampire bloodline? This is what would happen if Twilight met Gossip Girl and had a sparkling, scandalous child.
- Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Before Edward, there was Angel. A brooding, tormented vampire in love with a high school girl. But Sunnydale, California is no Forks—it’s built over a hellmouth, which means all sorts of evil beasties are drawn to the town. Fortunately, Sunnydale is the home of Buffy, the one and only Slayer.
- The House of Night series–P. C. Cast. This series, starting with Marked, takes place in a prep school for vampires. When Zoey finds out that a friend is abusing her powers, what can she do to stop her?
- iDrakula–Bekka Black. Jonathan Harker has a rare blood disease, and it’s up to him, along with his girlfriend Mina and a medical student called Van Helsing, to figure out what it is. Sound familiar? It should–it’s an update of the classic vampire novel, Bram Stoker’s Dracula.
- The Vampire Diaries–L. J. Smith. Two vampire brothers fall in love with high-school senior Elena. How far will they go to be the one she chooses? (Also a TV series.)
- Vampire Kisses–Ellen Schreiber. Raven is as Goth as Goth can be, and she longs to be turned into a vampire. Can the mysterious new boy give her what she’s after? If you’ve already read the books, try the manga series, too.
Below are five paintings which are on display at two local museums, the Cincinnati Art Museum and the Taft Museum of Art.
