Today’s post is a little different, instead of me recommending vampire books to you, I’m asking for you to help me out. You see, there’s a type of vampire book I’m looking for, a book that may or may not exist, and since so many of you here are big book geeks like me, you just might be able to help me in my search.
What I am looking for is a post-apocalypse vampire book. That’s right, I want a book about vampires and the end of the world! A book where the world we know has been destroyed and only few humans (and vampires) have survived. There are loads of post-apocalypse books out there, but I have yet to see many about vampires. The only one I can think of is “I Am Legend” by Richard Matheson. So if you know of any others, please send the titles my way.
The reason for my search is, well, I am absolutely obsessively in love with the last two Resident Evil movies, you know, the two where the zombies have already taken over the world and there are only a handful of survivors left. Love it! However, except for Resident Evil Extinction and Afterlife, I’m not really a big fan of zombie books or movies. But I am a vampire fan!
Another thing that started this newfound search for post-apocalyptic vampire books is the short story “The Robber Bride” by Marjorie M. Liu (which can be found in the “Huntress” anthology). It actually is a vampire story which is set after an apocalypse! It’s hands down one of my favorite stories, I loved it so much that second after I finished reading it I did a search to see if the author had an entire book set in this vampiric wasteland, sadly, she doesn’t, which means I need to look elsewhere.
So now you know what I am looking for, a post-apocalyptic vampire tale. Considering that over a thousand vampire books were published last year alone there’s got to be at least one, right? Any help with my search would be greatly appreciated! I’d love you forever!
