So there is this contest. Which involves an author whom I have been reading alot of. And a series of which I so far own pretty much all of it (and in one case, two copies as my first copy fell apart). So I’m going to talk about it here.
For those of you who haven’t known me long, or are just visiting here by mistake, one of my favorite book series is the Argeneau series by Lynsay Sands. Technically its listed as a romance series, but there is mystery and a touch of sci-fi/fantasy as well.
What I like the most about it is that there is a scientific reason behind vampirism. They aren’t demons, or evil or anything like that.
They also don’t sparkle. Instead its an aftereffect of a medical technology gone wrong. Nanos (which for some odd reason always makes me think of Rodney Mckay, but that’s another entry) are in their bodies and help them heal (hence why they never die) and they use human blood to power themselves. The more damage to your body, the more blood you will need.
So if you haven’t read it, I suggest you do. The books have grown to include the Argeneau’s friends and extended family. I think there is 15 books at the moment (don’t quote me! I don’t have my collection on hand at the moment).
