I like vampires. No doubt about that. It's all you need to say to get my attention. "Hey Patty, Vampires!" I have never read a vampire book I didn't like. Yes, that includes Twilight. In fact Twilight got me back into reading. I saw a poster for the movie and thought, "Hm, that looks like a vampire." I went home and looked up and sure enough. Vampires! Sparkling vampire but still they sucked blood and that's good enough for me. There is only one thing with vampires in it that I didn't like. It was the movie BloodRayne and it was just awful. The sequel was actually better - not much but it was an improvement.
But there is one thing I do like more than vampires and that's vampire slayers. Yup the people (mainly guys) who hunt down the vampires. Pop a vampire slayer in the book I'm reading and I have a new favorite character.
I have no idea what it is about vampire slayers that gets me right in the heart. Maybe it's the odds they are up against. Vampires are supposed to be faster and stronger yet slayers can get the best of a vampire. Or tragic past. They are avenging lost loved ones. Whatever the reason I get weak in the knees when the vampire slayer walks into the scene. So who do you root for? The vampires or the slayers?
