I don't even know why I am doing a post on Vampires. The fasnication with vampires have been going on for centuries. People are drawn to them for varies reasons mostly because they leave forever, that is if they are not staked in the heart (the most common way to kill a vampire). They have been depicted in several ways from the gruesomely scary to the glamorous and beautiful. Vampire who feed and kill their victims to those who can feed and keep them alive, to variations of different type like Christine Feehan's Carpathians.
What are your favorite vampire novels other than Twilight? And if you have given Christine Feehan a try start with Dark Possession which is by far my fav Carpathian novel by her. As I write this I just realize that I haven't written a review for this book.

It looks like a classic crime of passion to Detective J.P Beaumont: two corpses found lovingly entwined in a broom closet of the Seattle School District building. The prime suspect, Pete Kelsey, admits his slain spouse was no novice at adultery, yet he swears he had nothing to do with the brutal deaths of the errant school official and her clergyman-turned-security guard companion. Beau believes him, but there's something the much sinned-upon widower's not telling—and that spells serious trouble still to come.
Because the secret Pete's protecting is even hotter than extra-marital sex. . . and it could prove more lethal than murder.
In this quick pace novel, J.P. investigate the death of two people whose bodies were found in a closet. On first glace it seems that the two were engaged in misdeeds but something about it just doesn't seem right. As the story unfolds we learn who the victims were as well as their family life. Even J.P. and his nemeses Max interact differently. It is not until the end of the book that we find the killer and the real reason for these puzzling murders.
This is an enjoyable read. The characters were all relate able. You are on the case with J.P. Just when you think you know who the killer is something happens to lead you in a new direction. The detective personality of digging deeper than what is the obvious is what make this novels so good. Then again if he only went with what was on the surface there wouldn't be much to the book. If you are new to the J.P. Beaumont world I think this is a good book to start with. For the most part these can be read out of order but there are times when reference of things that happen in past books come up.

Who haven't watch a zombie movie? The walking dead with rotting flesh and limbs falling off. Slow moving zombies who you can easily run away from. Moaning zombies with arms outstretched. Zombies with dragging bad legs. Zombies who run. Zombies in mass numbers. The new thing now-a-days are biological warfare zombies. What do all theses zombies have in common? We just can't get of enough of them.
There is something so terrifyingly compelling about them. Especially the biological/viral ones. Perhaps because anyone can become one. Maybe its the fact that when the outbreak happens lawlessness occurs and people are free to unleash their inner hero (or for some freely kill). Whatever it is, I prefer to watch them than read about them. I haven't written reading about them off yet as I haven't read enough to make up my mind. Do you have any suggestions of some great zombie reads?
