Before Twilight

May 17, 2009 at 1:05 am (Guests, Sites, or Books, I Recommend) (, , )

Before Stephenie Meyer’s blockbusting Twilight series, another author wrote a great Young Adult vampire series.

Amelia Atwater-Rhodes published her first  novel at fourteen. Her vampire novels are classified as young adult, but there certainly isn’t anything juvenile about them. Her writing is mature, sharp and poetic. Her vampires are extremely well thought out and their world complex. The series is very loosely connected, set in the same world, but different characters. The only thing really Young Adult is their relatively short length, but adults will certainly enjoy them.  I recommend her Den of Shadows series

    I think there are many more YA vampire stories before Twillight. It’s just that they did not gain so much attention.
