Ben and Katherine find friends and allies in other parallel universes. Mundi, for example comes from a world where the natural environment is respected and her community live in high tech houses built high in the trees. Technology and consumerism is triumphant in another Werrinup where the town and its river are part of a modern High-Tech suburb of a major city. It is mainly fun as the kids explore the worlds of the Parallax until they find a world that is a desolate ruin. It is then that they realise that there is a threat in the Parallax that is both dangerous and very close. They discover that the information they need to save their worlds may be held in the Reading Room the Guardians' repository of all the knowledge from all the worlds in the Parallax. The problem is that the Guardians can no longer gain access to the Reading Room.

Parallax - Vampire literature - Netflix

Vampire literature covers the spectrum of literary work concerned principally with the subject of vampires. The literary vampire first appeared in 18th-century poetry, before becoming one of the stock figures of gothic fiction with the publication of Polidori's The Vampyre (1819), which was inspired by the life and legend of Lord Byron. Later influential works include the penny dreadful Varney the Vampire (1847); Sheridan Le Fanu's tale of a lesbian vampire, Carmilla (1872) and the masterpiece of the genre: Bram Stoker's Dracula (1897). Some authors created a more “sympathetic vampire”, with Varney being the first example, and in 1986 by Anne Rice in Interview with the Vampire. More recently the genre has been blended with science fiction motifs like aliens. Moreover, some modern vampires even feed on energy, rather than blood.
