I just started reading Kim Harrison's The Hollows series, a True Blood, Dresden Files type urban fantasy series. This one's take on Vampires is a little more unique, at least to me, in it there are two different types of living and undead. The living Vampires are normal people who have been infected by a Vampire virus and get a few of the vampires abilities, and then when they die the become an undead vampire, who appear to have all or most of the tradition vampire qualities. The series main character is a bounty hunter witch who lives and and works with a living vampire and a pixie. I'm only a few pages into the first book, but I'm already loving it.
