Re: vampires

Saw the movie yesterday, fantasic.

^I didn't know much about the Fay either but both main book series I read (Dresden/Noble Dead) have them as the driving force for the story so they're being used a lot more in modern fiction, I've grown fond of them as a mythical race in stories.

I haven't seen any of True Blood season 4 yet but I heard the Fae and even Queen Mab turn up. Nearly every story before has shown her to be a completely inhuman dark demi-goddess of great power, hopefully TB keeps that theme.

Re: vampires

Yeah there was an extended trailer for it before the film, but I'm not all that fond of Cage.

Re: vampires

The Fades isn't really vampire, more a mash up of Ghost, Vampire and Zombie. I really liked it, but it had its low points. And it looks doubtful for a second series, though it does tell a more or less complete story in the first series anyway.

Re: vampires

@ Timothy - I'd recommend the Vampire Federation books by Scott Mariani. (Uprising and The Cross).

Unfortunately, I can see some of his books at the B&N site, but not these two. They are out for the Kindle in the UK, so I suppose it's only time

Well, they aren't specifically Fae, as in Dresden Files or True Blood fairies. They're just using the term to describe supernatural beings in general. So far we've seen a Succubus (Bo), a Werewolf (Dyson), a Siren (Hale), whatever Trick is, The Morrigan, who gave off a definite Vampire vibe, and now a Will-O-The-Wisps, and a couple of Dullahan/Headless Horseman.
If your interested, they do have a "FaeQ" on the SYFY site, which features some quick info on a whole bunch of the different supernatural beings that are involved in the show.

Re: vampires

well here's something cool:

Amber Benson <( the girl who played Tara on buffy the vampire slayer is now a writer in the parnormal fiction universe's.)

Caliope Reaper-Jones series:

1) Death's Daughter
2) Cat's Claw
3) Serpent's Storm
4) How to be Death <( will be out feb.28)

I know it's not a vampire series but sounds like a fun series none the less.

Re: vampires

I haven't even managed to see True Blood season 4 yet and Deborah Ann Woll just posted a photo on her Facebook about season 5. Her, some of the production staff and some live wolves outside the studio.

Seems to be a hint to the werewolves making another appearance.
