Pendragon Series - Merchant of Death, The Lost City of Faar, The Never War, The Reality Bug, Blackwater, The Rivers of Zadaa, The Quillan Games, The Pilgrims of Rayne, and Raven Rise.
In the first book, Eragon, a young man finds a mysterious blue stone in the forested mountains above his home in Alagaesia. Along with his blue dragon, Saphira, Eragon is stumbling about because things are happening to him which he does not understand. His inner goodness and common sense enable him to muddle through and he has some help from a couple of humans and some dwarfs. In the second book, Eldest, the dwarfs, elves, humans, Eragon, and Saphira have joined forces against evil. Eragon and Saphira have begun training to understand and improve their skills. A new, red dragon makes an appearance. I've been told that in the third book a golden dragon will appear. It has just been announced that the third book, Brisingr, will be available on September 20, 2008. Originally planned as a trilogy, Paolini has recently decided that there will be four books in his Inheritance Cycle.
Storms of Vengeance is John's first novel and I've been told that it is part of a series of 8 to 10 books. There is a murder mystery to be solved. Who did it and why? There is a mythical Lorradda Stone to locate. There are three parallel stories as we follow the actions of three different groups of people. There are also some ogres, two elves, several sorcerers, a troll, and one very impressive river monster. The book ends with a cliff hanger. One reason that young people gave for liking Harry Potter was the detail in the stories. They will find plenty of detail here as well. The title of the second book in the series will be The Hunter and the Marked.
There are three stories in Volume I of The Belgariad: Pawn of Prophecy, Queen of Sorcery, and Magician's Gambit. Volume II of The Belgariad has two stories: Castle of Wizardry and Enchanters' End Gambit. If you are looking for grand adventure and plenty of detail it is here. Some may object to the slow progression and limited action of this tale. A sorcerer and his daughter, a sorceress, have gathered together a group of individuals to fight evil. It seems that the particular make-up for this group is necessary based upon an ancient prophecy. The group includes: the Nimble Thief, the Man with Two Lives, the Blind Man, the Dreadful Bear, the Knight Protector, the Horse Lord, the Bowman, the Queen of the World, and the Mother of the Race that Died. A young boy named Garion, who was raised by his Aunt Pol, is caught up in all of this, though he doesn't know why. But then, is she really his Aunt? There is so much detail that I have not as yet confirmed there are no mistakes in the mapping of the story. I thoroughly enjoyed The Belgariad and look forward to reading the sequel, The Mallorean.

All of which are vampire, and in some vampire-werewolf.
Definitely check out the Twilight series first. The fandom is loads bigger than Harry Potter, and has already kicked Harry Potter off the top of the Best Sellers list.
I love HP, but Twilight is tons better, especially for girls.
It has romance, adventure, and everything else that makes you go "ahh"/"omg!".
If you want to learn more about the series, I highly suggest you check out www.stepheniemeyer.com Stephenie Meyer is the author.
As for Tantalize, its a bit more mature than Twilight is, though Twilight is written better, but as you go through the Twilight series it definitely gets more mature.
Uninvited is kinda like a mix between how Twilight and Tantalize is written. It comes on strong like Tantalize, but it deals with a bit of romance, but not quite like Twilight.
Hope I helped! :]Source(s): www.stepheniemeyer.com

No...don't read Twilight...it's not like harry potter AT ALL
in my opinion...I've read the 2 books in the Series and I didn't like it at all...( I read it because I wanted to read something like Harry Potter) The twilight series is about vampires and LOVE. so yeah...
Try books like Chronicles of Narnia, Eragon....Go To BORDERS and find the section where they sell Harry Potter books, around that section should be good for you to look
for books that some what relate to HP
I LOVE HP! :)
