Megan is differentiating between younger vampires still coming to terms with their nature, and older vampires who have had centuries, even millennia, to come to terms with their nature – and to have had any and all lingering remnants of humanity stripped away.
The questions are:
- can a younger vampire retain their humanity?
- can an older vampire recover their humanity?
Both interesting, but my question is: How does a vampire retain some humanity for centuries, if not millennia? And that is the question that both my novels address.
