Fantasy/Vampire fiction recommendations (12)

Alright, guys. I need your help. I'm slowly running out of reading material, and I plan to go on a bookrun soon. Trouble is...I don't know what I should buy. My tastes run the gamut, but recently, I just want to read some good fantasy or vampire fiction. I've already finished Twilight and the second book, and I'm also a fan of the Anita Blake series, but I also love Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. Any suggestions...? And thanks for the help, everyone.

I was going to suggest Twilight, but then I saw that you've read it and it's second book. Have you tried it's third book? It's called Eclipse... :D

Vampire fiction, eh?

Have you read Elizabeth Kostova's "The Historian"?

It was conceived as sort of a "tribute" to Stoker's Dracula, and as such Stoker's book actually plays a role in the plot of Kostova's.

It's kind of long, but it's damn good. I highly recommend it.

The Outlander series by Diana Gabalaldon. More historic fiction than fantasy, (although they do have a bit of witchcraft and time travel is central to the plot) they're quite long individually, but I'm always sad when they end. You and I seem to have really similar taste in books, so as long as you don't mind long ones, I think you'll really like them.

The Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan
11 of 12 books are released so far and all anywhere from 600 to 850 pages. Should keep you busy and it's key point is that it's a GOOD series.

I know it's not sword and spell fantasy, but if you light Pratchett there's a good chance that you'll like the H2G2 series by Douglas Adams. It's basically Discworld a la space opera.

You're evil. Jordan died before he finished the series, yes it's very good but to all of us he left behind we're pretty screwed.
