Recomend "The Reapers Are The Angels." The Reapers are the Angels 100%. Great, wonderful, thrillling, deep, engrossing, literary but without pretension.

Go onto Amazon Search, Books, above. Type in the strain and click on it. Scroll about halfway down the page and you will find a horizontal listing of 'like' books. Maybe you will find something there that he hasn't read.

The Passage by Justin Cronin, and Let The Right One In by Lindqvist are both good

Try Holiday of the dead, an anthology based around Zombie happenings
Holiday of the Dead

or Howl;Dark tales ofthe feral and infernal. Both very good anthologies.

day by day armageddon and the sequel beyond exile are fantastic post-apocolytic zombie books. also kim newman wrote several follow ons to anno dracula that are worth a look, and queen victoria demon hunter is in a very similar vein .

I've just received a Vine copy of Juggernaut (by the guy who wrote Outpost) and it's rather good so far. I've never really read anything in the genre but Juggernaut has got me interested.

The Stand by Stephen King is pretty much the classic for plague cause Post Apocalyptic.
Or for an English end to the world John Wydhams books are fantastic.

Let the Right One in by John Ajvide Lindqvist, the story of a child vampire, both touching and horrifying.

Simply the best series of zombie books you will read -

Zombie Fallout

Full of action , and lots of laughs.

The Enemy,The Dead and The Fear all by Charlie Higson supposedly YA books but every bit as good as other zombie/survival horror books. Also Bram Stokers Dracula is still a brilliant read and also Salem's Lot by Stephen King is still one of the best vampire books out there. Have to agree with some other comments that Let the Right One In is a great twist on vampire books.

You could try Salem's Lot by Stephen King. Really good. Also Uprising by Scott Mariani, which is the first book in his Vampire federation series. It's really great!

Demon Rock - prison for the supernatural. Vampires and Shape shifters are just some of the inmates.

Demon Rock: Human Rights are for Humans.........

Would like to recommend the Urban Fantasy series by Patricia Briggs, beginning with "Moon Called"; there are six novels featuring the same central character, a shape-shifter, and having a strong leaning towards werewolves, also including vampires and the fae (the dark kind of fae, no fairy lights here!) The characters are good, the stories very readable, no teenage romance but no darkest horror either.

Your partner might enjoy "The Last Werewolf" by Glen Duncan.
Or the series by Barb & J.C. Hendee, starting with "Dhampir", featuring a half-vampire huntress, and an exiled half-elf, and rich in all shades of the undead.
Or perhaps he would like the vampire series set in America, by Charlie Huston, which contains some serious horror, and some very dry humour, the first of which is "Already Dead".
Hope you happen across something that suits, from all these suggestions ! (not just mine!)

I really liked The Shadow of Death by Peter Jackal

It's definitely a grown ups book, a very different take on the whole vampirism/zombie genre.
