Feared Vampires

It's easy to look at the vampires as a metaphor for any feared or misunderstood group.

Does that sound familiar?

Technology has a shadow side. It accounts for real progress in medicine, but has also hurt it in many ways, making it more impersonal, expensive and dangerous.

I define a 'good person' as somebody who is fully conscious of their own limitations. They know their strengths, but they also know their 'shadow' - they know their weaknesses.

Every animal has his or her story, his or her thoughts, daydreams, and interests. All feel joy and love, pain and fear, as we now know beyond any shadow of a doubt.

Technical Other

It's hard enough to just be a good actor. When you're on set, there's everything going against you.

It's a really technical process.

I Think Compare

I think I probably got a lot of my father's natural security or ego or whatever. I can be my own person and not have to live under his shadow.

- Donald Trump, Jr.

Love Love Story

If I could sum up 'Shadow's Claim' in six words: cage fights with hot alpha males. Seriously, though, while the fights are the backdrop for Trehan and Bettina's love story, the main emphasis is on how Trehan - a pitiless master assassin - wages the ultimate battle to win her heart.

- Kresley Cole
