I absolutely love a great love story between a human and a creature of another species. Give me vampires, werewolves, dragons, and even certain aliens who fall in love with a mere human and I melt like a lovesick teenage girl.
I become completely enraptured by the journey of two of these different species finding themselves falling in love with each other. No matter how many different stories are written, each time it is completely new. What obstacles will they face? Will the human somehow become like the mystical creature or develop powers? Was there already something extra special about the human that drew this mystical being to her/him?
There are always so many questions which means so much wonder and excitement with these extra special love stories. Sure, I realize there are multiple stories out there of this kind of romances but the extra wonderful thing about writing about mythical creatures is that there are no rules. What one writer’s dragon is capable of, or originates from can be completely different from that of another writer; the possibilities are limitless. That means you could read thousands of stories about vampires, or werewolves, or dragons and be completely surprised by new worlds each and every time. When you really stop to think about that, how could you not get excited every time you pick up a new book that you know is a part of this wonderful world of fantasy?
