A Guide For Living Life As A Modern Vampire




  


                                                     Fangs Rule Beginning Guide Entry
My name is Amy.......er.........ok, my full vampire name is: Lady Amelia, Mistress of the Night Mare, and Alpha Female from the Family of the Pink Bat. Yes...that is why I prefer to shorten it to Amy Mah (Vampire).
I should point out that I'm a full born vampire not some cold blooded undead turnling. But I grew up in the human world_ raised by humans - until I was discovered and adopted into the Pink Bat Family.
Being a vampire in the human world was very difficult. No_one had ever told me how a vampire should act. Everyone just thought I was a teenage girl with strange dietary needs, anaemic or something, and I rattled from the number of iron tablets I took every day.
What I should do?I know I needed blood but didn't know how to get it, and all the knowledge I had on vampirism was from human books and films telling all kinds of stuff about vampires that was just stupid. Like telling me I could change into a bat- I know that's not true because I tried it. And believe me when I say it is not cool to be discovered at school flipping your arms up and down trying to fly, those sort of events kinda follow you about!
So when living with humans I started writing my own little A-Z in my journal, recording what's like being a teenage vampire and putting right all the strange stories going that are so not true. I know that a lot of it will be very obvious to you if you know anything about real vampires, but I started out being the lowest of the low, with very little knowledge and rank below that of a cat...... I think cats probably still outrank me!
As I said, it's just my scribbling but I hope you find it helpful or at least amusing.

                                                             About Fangs Rule
Have you ever read a book that is a guide on how to act a certain way. Well this is much the same but its a manga and uses vampires along with some humor. So really just more fun. In Fangs Rule, readers get to read about the real habits of a vampire and the true/untrue myths surrounding vampires. 


Many of the truths about a real vampire are very hard to accept or there are new concepts about vampires that are created. It's a fun light read with a lot of good humor.

Amy (Mah) Vampire is a young teen vampire girl that wishes to help her fellow teen girl vampires with this guide of a sort of ettiquette they must follow. She is very casual about it and invites us into her own experiences as a vampire as well as with added beautiful pictures of those in her vampire family. Manga book lovers should enjoy this all the while with many laughs throughout the very attractive artwork pages. 
                                                         Overall: Amazing read!
                                        Genre: Young Adult, Manga, Vampires
