2.0 out of 5 stars Some Blood, a lot of ice, not much story..., 6 Aug. 2011
This review is from: Blood and Ice (Paperback)
When you read the back of the book it sounds like a good modern twist on the vampire legend. You slog through the very detailed accounts of the Antarctica and the research that is being performed there. This splits with the love story of Sinclair and Eleanor, of which there is no sense of great love between them. Add to this the story of Michael and his own tragic love story of which there seems to be no real point to in the book. This book leave more questions than answers. What is it that stalks the Crimean battlefields and that the soldiers seem so blase about? Why is it that victims of the vampire curse seem to act differently to Sinclair and Eleanor? Why is Sinclair so changed but Elanor is not..?
Ultimately the characters and the story feel very flat, the dialogue is entirely unconvincing and adds to the unreal feel of the characters. By the end of the book I felt very shortchanged. I tried very hard to care about the characters but still felt unmoved by any of the events which took place sad or happy, and that was due to the fact the characters and events never seem convincing or real.
