There are lots of vampire series out there with all sorts of flavors and are huge fun to read. I do think there are at least 3 grand dames of the vampire paranormal romance. Christine Feehan and her Carpathians are all alpha male and I will protect my Beloved. The Carpathians probably have most of the classical powers, being able to turn into mist and various animals and to hypnotize mere mortals. If you want a more comic slant Lyndsey Sands and Katie MacAlister are the ones to read. MacAlister's heroines are priceless. I am also currently another YA (young adult) series, The House of Night, by PC Cast and Kristin Cast which is also great and has a much more proactive heroine then Bella. If you google vampire fan sites there are quite a few out there that review books and you can find dozens of authors all with very fresh views on what a vampire should be.
