The book with two stories at once…

I picked this up in a charity shop without knowing anything about it and liked it a lot when I first read it. If you like books about Antarctic expeditions and the Crimean War, this is certainly a good book for you. It certainly presents a few unique ideas about vampires and how to cure it but, storywise, it falls a little flat. Trying to tell two stories at once does carry that risk.

That’s the short version. Here’s the long version.
