The LoveVampires 2008 End of Year Review
The end of the year seems the perfect time for reflection on this year’s offerings in the various vampire fiction genres. The vampire romance, urban fantasy and young adult (YA) genres are all growing at a fast rate as vampires continue to leave their crypts and creep into bedrooms across the globe...
Here are six of this year’s best books as chosen by the LoveVampires site:
