      Vampire Chef?  Really?  Please give more details -- I'd love to find something else that ISN'T Twilight to give my fifteen year-old...

      On the other hand, she is digging Gail Carriger's "Parasol Protectorate" series -- so if you like your supernatural with a hefty leavening of humor and a solid dash of steampunk, this is definitely a series I'd recommend.

      It also, oddly enough, came to a definite conclusion while the author (gasp) decided to write about other things... and while there was still definitely story to be told if she decides to do so later on.

        The lead character is a chef/owner of a restaurant that caters to "nightbloods"--vampires.  Yes, there are werewolves and witches involved as well, but they generally follow normal perceptions--You can stake a vampire, and they hate garlic and holy water, and they're dead during the day.  They do have powers though.
