Although stories about vampires have become a bit played out, they are classic stories that started with Bram Stroker's Dracula. There are certain certain types of horror characters have been redone over and over again, such as vampires and werewolves. I doubt that they will stop any time soon.

I don't necessarily prefer vampire stories. However, I do believe that every once in a while there are fresh takes on vampires. When a vampire or their stories are not conventional or overly fantastic then I think it can be fun.

Vampire stories are perhaps my favorite including the cheesy ones. I mean I grew up on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel. There's something fascinating about being able to see how each author adapts their stories and changes them up so they're not all similar.

They can be amazing, but sometimes there are just so many it is hard to keep up.

Now that is something I can agree with.

I can normally make it through vampire books. This one on the other hand was terrible. I could not make it through it. According to my kindle I only made it about fifteen percent through it before I called it a wash. It was to much filler spots to where he could have just gotten to the point of things. The time travel is where I lost what little interest I still had in the book. I have read many other vampire books and this is probably the worst one that I have read. I thought it might be different because of the reviews on Amazon. I was sadly mistaken. I only gave it one star in my review.

There are too many vampire stories out there, but I guess I am getting tired about it. I have see more YA genre for them. But I think it's because it is a supsotuet for sex, violence, and drugs. It has become a new kind of drug for teenagers. Reading about Vampires.

I read a lot of vampire tales. I've read Dracula, Anne Rice, and the Twilight Series in addition to Nightlord. I like the different perspectives that authors can take on vampires and their stories.

I'm definitely not a big fan of vampire stories. They all seem like the same story, copy and pasted over new character names and maybe one or two new love triangles. They certainly aren't scary, either.

I think that there are some questions that are as timeless as the creatures themselves. There are so many angles to be explored for some questions, like how something can retain its value when you have it in an unlimited quantity, wherein the perspective of a vampire serves as the ideal conduit. That being said, there are certainly more than a few authors who choose not to dig into the psychology of the whole thing, choosing instead to relay on the romanticism of these creatures of the night. The latter group of authors are the ones that I am becoming quite tired of. So, I think my answer ends up being something along the lines of "Vampire stories can be valuable when done right, but those not done right have become overrated and boring, to be frank."
