Vampires are endlessly reinvented in books and films, and recently, I have really loved The Order of the Sanguines series by James Rollins and Rebecca Cantrell. The final book in the series, Blood Infernal, is out now.
In this interview, I interview Rebecca about the ideas behind the books, and her own fascination with vampires.

Rebecca Cantrell is the New York Times bestselling author of the Order of the Sanguines series with James Rollins, as well as the Joe Tesla series and Hannah Vogel mysteries. Today we are talking about vampires!
- How Rebecca got into vampires and her fascination with the idea of living forever but having to pay a price. We discuss how humanity has always has legends of creatures who suck blood and get some power of it. The cycle of popularity for vampire stories in books and movies. Rebecca correlates it with financial insecurity, when the life blood is sucked out of the economy! Or perhaps it's just a form of escapism in difficult times.
