, but it's more of a Dracula style vampire novel about a girl who's family owns a vampire themed restaraunt and then a REAL vampire become sthe cook and is slowly turning the town's population vampiric with his dishes, and so is Bloodline
which is basically Dracula 2000 in book form...oh and also better and written before the movie.
I read Cirque du Freak when I was younger but it kind of annoys me now.
Really my favorite vampire novels are the Nyeusigrube books by Amelia Atwtaer-Rhodes. It's not like Twilight because humans can kill vampires if they have a certain amount of training and skill, but it also defies a lot of vampire canon. Like the sun, silver, coffin, and religion weaknesses. The books also don't push either abstinence or religion, there's no blasphemy or smutt in them, but it also never comes up so no one has to say "no". All but the fifth one were written WAY before Twilight so any similarities are coincidental (she was working on her shapeshifter series Kiesha'ra during the main part of the Twilight Era as she calls it on her site http://www.nyeusigrube.com
The first one is the story of a mostly human girl (Risika) in the late 1600s who's twin brother is training to become a vampire hunter but she doesn't know. In retaliation the most powerful local vampires threaten both her and her younger sister eventually changing the girl and "murdering" the brother. The book is about the girl attempting to get revenge for her brother's death and her own vampirism. IN THE FORESTS OF THE NIGHT.
The second book is about a girl who has dreams about vampires which she writes as books only to find out later that they are true. Aubrey (the vampire villain from FORESTS and main character of the girl's first two books) goes to the girl's school to kill her only to find that she is under the protection of the local witches, healers and vampire hunters. He accidentally falls in love with her which makes an older, but not as powerful, vampire angry. The other vampire attacks the girl as revenge against Aubrey and out of pure spite. DEMON IN MY VIEW.
The thrid book is about a witch (the daughter of the hunter in the second book) who moves to a new town and starts high school with Cullen-esque vampires whom she befriends which is against the witch's law. All the while she is on the hunt for an ancient and powerful vampire who may have connections to the brother and sister from school While attempting to kill the vamp she messes up big time and might be stripped of her magic and title, leaving her prey to the asociates of all the vampires she had hunted in her lifetime. SHATTERED MIRROR
The fourth book is about a human girl who was kidnapped into slavery by a vampire. When she gets out she joins a mercenary guild and learns the skills necessary t never be mistaken as prey again. She gets a job offer back in the vampiric slave trade which is illegal even in the vampire world ("Silver's line in New Mayhem have a distaste for caged meat" and "If you want to cower behind those laws go to New Mayhem and petition Silver. Of course they have those nasty laws concerning the trade, but I'm sure if you beg prettily they'll only torture you for a century o so"). She comes to terms with all the ways she has become like the vampires in her attempt to distance herself from them. MIDNIGHT PREDATOR
And the fifth book is about a girl who has believed herself to be crazy her whole life, with a poweful alter ego Shevaun(who is actually the vampire who created themercenary guild from the fourth book). If she can't accept the supernatural and find a way to sever her psychic connection to the vamp her mind will be permanently damaged and she may never learn to harness the supernatural power she was born with. Or worse, be completely taken over by artificial memories of a being who "alternates between reclusive artist and cutting a bloody swath across Europe". PERSISTENCE OF MEMORY
