Now she has a teen series, VAMPS, Vampire American Princesses. Oh, how the mighty have fallen.
But she hasn't fallen far. The first was meant for brooding goth boys. This series is for not so brooding girls and possibly boys.

Meet Lilith, Jules, Tanith, Melinda, and the rest of the Old Bloods. They're young, they're rich, and they're the hottest kids in New York. But you might never see them. They're vampires.

She obtains these strong power...more
At first the book follows Lilith, a spoiled, rich, vampire princess who thinks she is entitled to everything. Lilith and her view point gets old fast. I got really sick of hearing about various clothing designers. But then we meet Cally. A girl that I can relate with a lot easier. She's pretty normal for being a hybrid (human/ ...more

I had this is my book shelf since last year. Thank goodness I finally came around reading it. I know. I know the cover looks like more of a glamor shop and therefore the contents is probably all whack.There I go again with judging the cover. Vamps is nothing like that sure there's still high end New York fashion and high maintenance princess type characters, shallow big egos and selfish.
Lilith, Jules, Carmen, Sergei, Tanith, Melinda, and Oliver are among those vampire family they call ...more
Centuries ago, somehow the vampire race got trapped in our world and must live with humans. With the help of a company called HemoGlobe, vampires buy blood without having to hunt for it. Thus giving them more time to live their lives peaceably with humans, and helping them keep their secret.
These vampires can shape shift into bats and another creature, usually a wolf. They are born, not made. But, adult vampires can bite humans and turn them into what the ...more
I was all set not the like the book. All the designer name dropping is expected in chick lit but I was beginning to think that everyone in the book was going to be some sort of monster. We ...more
Also it was very unoriginal compared to other vampire books i'v read kind of like a cross between house of night series and gossip girl but not written as well or as creatively. which made it boring to me.
i dont know if i'll be reading the next book in this series unless i dont have anything better at the time.
though saying that i suggest you should rea ...more
I had a bit of a hard time finishing this book, mainly because I found the characters to be shallow. There was this one scene where Lilith was more concerned (as in the world will now end type of concern) ...more

[... Lilith looked over her shoulder at him, her brilliant blue eyes shining with tears.
"Daddy?" She asked in a wavering voice.
"Yes, Lilith?" he replied gently.
"You're not going to cut up my credit cards, are you?"...]

I'm not a real vampire fan, but this book drives me nuts, so shallow and just childish... While reading I had an impression, t ...more
She and all her friends are ultra-rich, ultra-self-centered, and very, very stuck up.
