- LACKEY, Mercedes -- 2)Children of the Night (Fantasy)***: Part of the Diana Tredgarde series about a witch romance-writer investigator (picture a cross between Anita Blake and Nancy Drew). In this book she encounters a blood-vamp babe and, like, completely falls for him. They team up against some evil psy-vamps including Diana's ex. * see also: 1) Burning Water (not vampire related).
- LEE, Tanith -- Sabella (SF)***: Castaway alien vampire woman finally meets her natural mate and the only one who can safely 'feed' her. The ending may be a bit of a pill for modern women, but think about it...[full length review]

- GOLDEN, Christie--Vampire of the Mists (Fantasy)**: An intriguing premise--Jander Sunstar, a golden elf, becomes a vampire The story does come close to exploiting the potential of this idea. Set in the Ravenloft world, the setting is static and virtually nothing happens. The flashbacks to the Forgotten Realms are the best bits and I just wish the plot had been set there instead.
- BUTLER, Jack--Nightshade (SF)***: A peculiar blend of Mars space-opera and vampire heroics. Well worth it for the weirdness, even though its actual adventure storyline is only middling to OK.
- CONNER, Miguel--The Queen of Darkness (SF)*: Evil vampires enslave human's in a post-apocalyptic future. One develops something of a conscience, and chaos ensues. A passable but peculiar read.
- PIERCE, Meredith Ann--the Dark Angel trilogy (Fantasy): 1) Darkangel**, 2) A Gathering of Gargoyles*: Lovely fairytale-tone story. Aimed at young adult but readable by all ages.
