My son saw Twilight and hated all of the teen angst. The Monster is 12, wants to be scared, but doesn’t want kissing. He has been playing Morrowind and has been toying with being a werewolf and vampire in it.
So he finally asked me to find age appropriate books for him and by the way, he didn’t want any teen angst. Borders has a huge display on vampires, and don’t you know, they are all semi-romantic. What I found was The Saga of Darren Shan, aka Cirque du Freak.
And that series makes my wife sad.
So I am trying to figure out if I could do justice to some Young Adult fiction. I certainly have adult vampire plots, but nothing for teens.
