The twist in this classic seems to offer such a shift in perspective that it totally deserves a place on this list. After a plague wiped out most of humanity and caused them to come back to life as vampires, Robert Neville is the only man left. He hunts the vampires as they sleep by day, but he still wants to know just what happened with the plague. Eventually, he finds out that the vampires aren't just mindless monsters — they are sentient and angry that he has been killing them off. In the end, Robert isn't a legend because he is the last human. He is a legend because he became a feared monster in the eyes of the vampires, who are now the majority species in the world.
I Am Legend is one of Kevin Jackson's top ten vampire novels.
