How many different kind of vampires are there? Dracula lurked in the shadows and had mastery over the beasts of the night, sparkly vampires flock to the Pacific Northwest to be all emo and seduce the unsuspecting, and then there are the vampyres of House of Night. They do drink blood, but except for some magical vampyre powers, they are pretty much like you and me. Or something like that…
