The only modern horror vampire/werewolf I've come across is fast becoming a cliché. Please don't wince. "Twilight" has the whole vampire themes with werewolves explored in more detail in "New Moon", "Eclipse" and "Breaking Dawn". Most people consider it Marmite; love it or hate it. It's probably worthwhile to check out Twilight from the library.

i would agree but i have read twilight and the romance can get a bit too mushy

Changeling by Steve Feasey is very good - werewolves and vampires and plenty action. written primarily for 11 yrs +, I'm 32 and loved it!

okay so vampires are ace, since im not sure of your age i will just sugguest the books i have read (im 16 so keep that in mind) okay twilight saga i loved but youve already read that, you could try the books by karen chance - there good and have romance but its not soppy its more.... erm vivid? so if your my age or older it probably wouldnt be too bad. erm ive read the house of night series and i enjoyed that and also the vampire acadamy series, for a good werewolfy- type book there is bone crossed/ moon called that series which is good it has vampires/ werewolfs/cyotes/ faye. the name cassandra clare also comes to mind but i think this is the aurthor of moon called, not sure though. anyways hope this is sorta helpful =D happy reading x

Cassandra Clare wrote the mortal instruments trilogy, a good series of teen books (I'm 16 and loved them) which involve vampires, werewolves, warlocks, fay and demons. less mushy than twilight, but still with romantic aspects. I would reccomend them

How about the mortal instruments series?

The Sooki Stockhouse True Blood series by charlene Harris! True blood is also a new HBO tv series so the books are good!

THE HOUSE OF NIGHT series by Pc and Kirsten cast is excellent ( im 25) also the night world books are good - also i would imagine you would love the first few books by lk hamilton - but after about the tenth book - it starts to get a bit porno and the plotlines suffer. i have just started the morganville vampire series thats good and Richelle mead and kelley armstrong are really good.
for supernatural but with an edgy twist you should try jim butcher - his books are amazing - Good LUCK -etta

I've rad the twilight saga and thought they were brilliant, infact they're what hooked me up in vampire genre. If you haven't read them, you should try those. Also, the Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead are one of best vampire books, I would most definitely recommend them. Kelley Armstrong is pretty good too, also the Sookie Stackhouse/True Blood, if you like mystery. The Morganville Vampires books are cool as well, has good plot twists, actions and some romance too!
And, I think Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare suits you're description the best. Loads of action and s little bit of romance. Includes vampires, werewolves, fayes etc.
If you liked Twilight then you'll definitely like Night World, they are truly delightful and I've read and enjoyed the House of Night series but, they can sometimes be a little bit annoying, though the main character (Zoey) is more mature and all from the fourth book ( they are much more darker).
Hope this helps you,
Happy Reading:)

I agree with the house of night series- they are a brilliant read. I am also enjoying the night world series by L.J. Smith and am wanting to read another series by her called vampire diaries. the books by Claudia Gray(Evernight) sound really good

Although I love Twilight, I wouldn't consider reading them if I was a horror reader, There is nothing remotely scary about these books its more based on all consuming, over whelming love......

For a really good vampire one try Sunshine by Robin McKinlay (I think that's the author anyway). Also Kelley Armstrong Otherworld series, more werewolves, witches and demons than vampires right enough. I think the first one was Bitten, about a female werewolf.

Not sure how old you are but have you tried the Darren Shan Sagas?

i'll list the books ive read
Mortal Instruments is good but can be a bit dull
House of Night is good but a bit plastic (as in-vampyres aside, it could never happen, the characters are too fake)
The Twilight saga isnt really about the vampires in it but about how people love each other, the vampires are a bit of a sideline
i think the Icemark chronicles by Stuart Hill have were wolves or something like that in them.
and (obviously) there is Dracula by Bram Stoker which is the sets the base of most vampires nowadays. it was written in 1897 but the language isnt so complicated you can't keep up. im 13 but im more than half way through and am enjoying it.

Annette Curtis Klause's Blood and Chocolate and The Silver Kiss. Wonderfully written!

Fully recommend Shiver - about a wolfboy who falls in love with a mortal girl.....

Hush, Hush is about fallen angels, also very good...... quite similar to vampires :)

Good luck! xx

What about ANNA RICE- she has written some really GREAT vampire tales ?
"Interview with a Vampire" being the first of one of her series, The Vampire Chronicles.
She has also written many books in very similar genre, often based in New Orleans, all emminently readable. Take a look and I hope you DO read and ENJOY them.

Can't believe it took so long for someone to suggest ANNE RICE! She reinvented the genre, twilight etc could not exist without her. READ IT. Also Poppy Z Brite but she is not for the faint hearted. And "Sharp Teeth" by Toby Barlow is an amazing piece of writing.

Not modern, or at least not set in modern times, but I just love Fevre Dream by George R R Martin. An amazing story which made my hair stand on end at times!

In reply to an earlier post on 30 Aug 2010, 09:12:08 BST
Only just saw this request as I don't look at discussions very often, but Anne RICE is one of the best that I have read in that genre, so thought I aught to let the enquirer know.

A classic, rather than modern, but try Bram Stoker's Dracula.
