This review from Michele Lee also tags The Blue Mirror‘s obsessive love relationship as implicitly vampiric, which is maybe the nature of all such lopsided and unhealthy pairings.  As I work my way through another idea, also concerned with adolescent girls and power – which is the vampire’s thesis statement, isn’t it? who feeds from who, when, and under what circumstances? – I’m thinking of these questions in a new fictional context. Vampires are about sex in the way that sex is about power, or so it’s always seemed to me.
