Abstract: From Vampire Readings: In this twist on Bram Stoker's Dracula, the Count easily survives Van Helsing's pitiful attempt to destroy him. He quickly goes on to win the hand of the widowed Queen Victoria. Vampires now hold sway in England, but not all are evil. In fact, one of the most enchanting characters in the story is Genevieve, a vampire older than Dracula who works to help the poor in the East End of London. It is Genevieve and her mortal lover Charles Beauregard who are Dracula's eventual undoing.
