The vampire phenonmenon
Having watched and enjoyed the series, I bought myself the set of book(s). I was a little disappointed at first, as the only thing in common was the characters names, the storylines were completely different. Having said that though, I have thoroughly enjoyed reading the book(s) and have even bought copies for friends and family. Would recommend you try them. One downer though, have got to wait until March '11 for Book 7!
