I love the Harry Potter series I also loved the Ann Rice Vampire cronicles, (Wolfpak i understand why you didn't like Memnoch) But i loved it, really is one of her best works. The rest of the series deals with other vampires lives mostly, Lestat plays a role in most of them, but he is not the focus of the later stories. Pick one of them up, i think you might like a couple of them. Pick up The Vampire Armand, its a really good book, Blood and Gold is also a great book, dealing with the life of Marius, if you remember he was the one guarding the Queen of the vampires. Stay away from the newest one though, its all sexual and stuff, not really her best.
