Vampires A Very Peculiar History by Fiona MacDonald

Introduced by everyone's favourite bloodsucker, Count Dracula , Vampires: A Very Peculiar History features the origin of vampire-like creatures and a biological and mythological look at human blood (including the best places to bite if you were a vampire!) alongside tales of the real-life vampires that may have inspired the first vampire stories. It includes advice on how to spot a vampire as well as how to become one! Even vampires of film, grapic novel and manga get a taste of the action! Don't be scared, be prepared...with The Cherished Library's Crypt Editions .
