I’ve wondered in the past why Stephenie Meyer decided to make her vampires sparkly? Was it to make them appear more likable and romantic. The big difference is probable due to the fact is the Twilight series is YA rated and it would be much to scary for the kids if she were to have written bloodier and more graphic scenes. I would have loved to have read an x rated version with more blood and intimate details about the Cullen’s and the relationship between Bella and Edward. I can just picture a sparkly cover with a big red X across the front and wrapped in plastic so the kids can’t peek.
That is why I love Laurell K. Hamilton’s vampires that little bit more. More blood and guts. More sex scenes and just more for adults in general. Laurell has found a way to keep the gore and raunchy and still give each character the romance and likability. With the added bonus having scary vampires to hate, the world of Anita Blake is more my speed.
Laurell K. Hamilton I’ve been a huge fan of Laurell K Hamilton’s for many years now. I started out reading Anita’s stores first then I got into Merry Gentry. Fantasy and mystery with sizzling sexuality, all wrapped up a bow together with vampires, fey, wereanilmals, and zombies. Oh and an insecure hot chick with a whole pile of fancy weapons. Laurell has other works as well but these are by far my favorites.
