Werewolves Synopsis: (From Amazon.com)
From ancient legend to pop-culture icon, from monster to antihero, here is a complete look at werewolves. Fans of the complex beasts will howl with pleasure at this passionate handbook incorporating legend, lore, trivia and art. Author Jon Izzard stalks both the fiction and the facts: transformations, inner rage, extra-human strength, silver bullets, mysterious curses, modern cures and more. With werewolves’ now haunting movie screens and literature the way they have haunted our nightmares for millennia, readers won't wait for the full moon to devour this fascinating volume.
Vampires Synopsis: (From Amazon.com) Dangerous yet seductive, the vampire plays with our heart as he preys with our soul, commanding respect and inspiring complete devotion.For anyone touched by the vampire's flight through recent movies, TV shows and novels, here is a feast of vampire stories and lore. Charting the development of the vampire from prince of pure evil to poignant anti-hero, the VAMPIRE HANDBOOK, is a comprehensive guide to the vampire's nocturnal realm, exploring the dark mysteries of his eternal allure, irresistible charm and vulnerability.
Review: Both of these books have mega info on the legends surrounding Vampires and Werewolves. Some of the Vampire legends in the book I’ve never heard of, the legend of Lilith in Vampires was very creepy and comes out of the Gnostic Gospels….(eck!) The savvy writing wove between the historical legends and pop culture movies and graphic pictures will for sure be a great treasure on any Vampire or Werewolf fan's shelf!! You can spend hours combing over these action packed full of everything you ever wanted to know about your favorite monster..........
