Types of Vampires

When discussing vampires in casual conversation, it's safe to say that the majority of the population equates the vampire to Dracula and alternately to the drawing room Dracula portrayed by Bela Lugosi in 1931. This obviously begs the question: “Aren't all bloodsuckers alike?” In a word — no. They aren't. While the majority do possess basic characteristics such as bloodlust, a combination of varying powers, and certain weaknesses inherited from the vampires of lore and early literature and film, each vampire, as do humans, has its own cross to bear and its own methods of madness. With that in mind, let's take a look at some of the more prevalent types of vampires other than the traditional we've covered throughout the book.
