After Чтение them I am convinced that they are even better than the TV show--so much еще info on all of the characters.
I am also a big vampire buff and have read a lot of vampire fic--twilight does not compare.
There are currently 10 novels in the series (I have only read the first 4. But I really recommend Фаны to check them out!
1.1 The Awakening
1.2 The Struggle
