However, part of the appeal of the Vampire is the immortality that extends to the concept of immortal love; a love that can break all evil.
That does not really hold true for me, and I think that Anne Rices books rather display the way in which love and immroality do not mix, and prove to be quite a dieseaster when combined.
A series that includes Vampires, other paranormal is the Night Watch trilogy by Sergei Lukyanenko. It plays wonderfully with the concepts of light and dark, what is good and what is evil. Lukyanenko is a Russian psychiatrist and the books delve into the human psyche via the paranormal.
That sounds interesting, I will have to keep it in mind
