Tea and Biscuits Book Discussions: Vampires/Immortals Series and My Top Picks

[divider]

Oh man…how do I love vampires and/or immortal themes. Even though they tend to be overdone at times, I never can seem to get enough of them. They were also my first introduction into the Paranormal realm of reading. I picked up Dark Challenge by Christine Feehan, through audio and boy was that a fabulous romance. Thus began my journey and I have never regretted this theme in romance. There are quite a few amazing series in vampire romance, and I wanted to share those with you today. Definitely looking forward to see if you agree or if there are series out there I have yet to read!! Let me know your thoughts on vampire/immortal series.

Cabot Sisters 

I love this duo of books….this set of books is set in the regency era, and I love what Teresa Medeiros has done with this series. So fascinating to see vampires in a historical setting, which not many authors write stories like these two. I love how spirited the heroines and sisters are in this story. All three of them.

Argeneau

Now I will say this is the most creative and unique of vampire series and oh the humor that Lynsay Sands displays is superb!! The way she writes about these vampires are in a scientific way. I liked that. We see a more realistic approach to vampires without the lost souls and evil beings of the night. There are fantastic characters in this series, and the earlier books are some of the best books I have ever read. Highly entertaining and fun to read…and the romances are very well written.

Carpathian 

This is a wonderful series and what I have loved most about it is the world building that Christine Feehan has done. I love the “lifemate” theme. Its been interesting to see the various characters that are in these books. Alpha Males and Modern females adds a unique mix of couples and I do enjoy how each book has a unique setting or set of circumstances. Some of my favorite Gregori, Julian, Skyler and Dimitri, Gabriel and Lucien, and Gary. This is truly a beautifully written series that is full of danger and passion. However there have been a couple of books that have been a bit more dissapointing, but overall the series has been great to read and I have loved seeing the journey these people have gone through. What I am most excited for is Gary and Gabrielle’s story. Gary has been a personal favorite since his first showing in Dark Magic. I love his character, and I am thrilled to see him finally get his HEA. Although my favorite story just might be Skyler and Dimitri’s book.

Vampires In America 

This is one amazing series, if you love vampires and have yet to try out D.B. Reynolds…she is a must read!! First off, her books are some of the most engaging books I have ever read. Definite page turners. I first discovered this author through Netgalley when the seventh book I believe was out. What I like about this series, is the characters. My favorite couple of course is Cyn and Raphael. But many others have been delightful additions. I like the idea of vampire lords having territory’s and gaining power as they go through life. My favorite book ironically is one of the most recent ones Deception. What I love most about, is seeing my favorite couple get challenged in a way they never have before. And its set in Hawaii….which is simply a great setting that is so rarely used. Overall well written with entertaining characters and lively dialogue.

Night Huntress Universe 

What a fabulous world Jeaniene Frost has given us. I have adored this world from the very beginning, and the couples that we have seen in it. We have Cat and Bones who are classic right? But I love Vlad and Leila (They are my favorite) and then we also have Mensheres and Kira–they were amazing together. And we can’t forget Denise and Spade–they were a blast. Each couple has been unique and brought something different to this world. Then we have Ian (I am told his story will be coming in the future). Which couple do you love most?

Love At Stake 

This is quite a wonderful series, and Kerrelyn Sparks has created a world of vampires and shape shifters!! But the focus of the series is vampires. What I love most about Sparks is her writing style. She is very engaging in each of her stories and I can never read these books fast enough.

Dark Protectors 

This series is utterly brilliant!! Rebecca Zanetti did a tremendous job in her world building, because there is depth and great detail that has gone into this series.

Black Dagger Brotherhood

I have mixed feelings about this series as a whole, however the first 9 books I really enjoyed. After that, I really struggled with this series and stopped reading it. However I do plan on continuing it one day, probably through audiobook might make things easier with all the multiple plot lines (which is the largest reason I stopped in reading the series) However I am very excited to read Blood Kiss and The Beast.–super excited for The Beast since its more of Rhage and Mary who are probably my favorite couple. I do adore the earlier books in the series, where you have the main romance as the main plot in the story.
