Vampires are all around-books, movies, TV, comics- infiltrating our culture like never before. But what happens if one should run into a real vamp on the street? Vampire Taxonomy is the best defense against a fatal encounter in the dark. For the reader's protection, Meredith Woerner reveals the truth about:
?Sunlight sensitivity-Do vamps venture out in the day or stick solely to the evening hours?
?Physiology-When ready to feed, do they change appearance or simply lure with the seductive flash of a fang?
?Dress-Are they decked out in leather with aspirations of becoming the first vampire rock stars or do they cling to Gothic robes and ruffled collars?
?Diet-Are they waging a never-ending struggle against the temptation of human blood or do they view the world as their personal blood buffet?
