I have selected these books because the vampire characters are portrayed differently from the mainstream ideas "vampires are evil", "vampires always kill people" or the vampires with "angst! angst! angst! Woe is me!" attitudes. The vampires in these books are main or secondary characters, and thus have depth, background and - usually - are even portrayed as the GOOD guys, or at least working for the greater good even if they're not the most ideal heros.

I created this list for those who think "vampires can only be evil" because these examples of fictional vampires who are NOT purely evil. Since these are fictional works, the vampiric characteristics they have don't have much - or anything - to do with reality, however their personality and their behavior towards others (in otherwords, their social interactions) show that being a vampire doesn't make a person evil, and it does not mean they can't have friends. Author's names that are links go to websites with appropriate info about the author and/or the books in question where possible, choosing the most informative site I can find.

Please note: All the books listed here are ones I HAVE ACTUALLY READ! I do not list books because an author has sent me information about it or begged me to have it listed. I have specific character criteria in use for this list, and it will not be bent for ANYTHING that does not fit. Period.

If you are interested in books other than what's on this page, you can also check out Vyrdolak's From Shadowed Shelves bookstore which appears to be extremely thorough.
