Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Amie Rose Rotruck
Vampires enjoy a popularity that, like the vampire itself, just does not seem to die. Guiley examines the lore, history, and current literature of vampires in this text from the "Mysteries, Legends, and Unexplained Phenomena" series. She begins with both the original legends and a description of vampires around the world. The second chapter describes how vampires are created, and the third chapter gives tips on how to identify a vampire (including a true-or-false quiz about vampire basics). If you want to know how to hunt a vampire, Guiley goes into great detail in chapter four. She then describes some specific vampire instances, like the well known Vlad the Impaler and the lesser known New England invasion. After the more or less factual chapters, Guiley then delves into the rich vampire literature, from Stoker to Lestat in books to Christopher Lee and Buffy in film. There are a few odd omissions in this section: no mention of Stephanie Meyers' "Twilight" series or the Angel spin-off of Buffy that enjoyed a run almost as long as the original show. Still, Guiley's book is a well researched work for vampires, vampire hunters, and vampire fans. Numerous photos, glossaries, and other factoids help round out this valuable resource.
