A new generation lost their hearts to the romantic lure of the vampire genre with Robert Pattinson's soulful vampire Edward Cullen. Vampire Lovers is for all those whose thirst remains unsated. This heady history of undead pin-ups who have stalked our screens and made mortal hearts race is irresistibly illustrated with more than 100 lavish photographs, examining each of the mesmerising performers who have taken on the role of leading vampire. Beginning with Twilight's vampire sweetheart Edward Cullen, continuing through radical characters like Kate Beckinsale's gun-wielding, PVC-clad action hero (Underworld) and Richard Roxburgh, Van Helsing's science-crazed villain, the book explores the decadent worlds of Interview with the Vampire, exuding velvet-soft, gilded sadness, and Kiefer Sutherland's sinister seaside playground (The Lost Boys), ending with delectably darkened visions of horror legends Christopher Lee and Bela Lugosi. From Buffy's brooding flames David Boreanaz and James Marsters to Stephen Moyer, the pulse-quickening star of True Blood, every intriguing incarnation of the legend is to be found here. Vampire Lovers demonstrates precisely why our fascination with this genre, much like Cullen's timeless love, will never die.
