Any suggestions on good adult vampire books?

I loved the Twilight series but I'm looking for something a little more grown up. I've read the Sookie Stackhouse Series. Does anyone have suggestions?

    Definitely Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles.

    I also like the Anita Blake series by Laurell K. Hamilton. I've only read the first 5 so far and I love them. I heard they get a lot more graphic as they go on though.

    The Jaz Parks series by Jennifer Rardin is another good one. Not as adult as Anita Blake but certainly more adult than Twilight. I love them.

    Silentheart got here out in 2009. the 2nd e book is in production now. Silentheart, the 1st of the vampire trilogy, written via R. Hoffer is in keeping with grownup vampires yet without the vulgarity of the somewhat some different vampire books. a astounding actuality approximately Silentheart is the author makes use of her deceased kin as her characters. The dates of dying and a few events used in the story are non fiction. the author does not placed across that her kin have been vampires. She only used the tips she obtained to enhance her tale and placed across some connection to her fatherland in Indiana. no longer all vampires stay in Forks.
