Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Awakened from their long Antarctic sleep, first by the early 20th-century exploratory expeditions to the South Pole and then 100 years later by the settlement of the continent, alien vampire creatures disperse throughout Europe to discover their purpose. Chloe Desmarais, a young Frenchwoman abused by her boorish family, finds respite in the strangely alluring presence of an unearthly man and follows him to a rendezvous that will change her life. The author of numerous popular compendiums (The Science of Superheroes; The Twilight Companion) blends vampire fiction with an sf premise. VERDICT This unusual tale of alien-human contact would translate into an entertaining B-movie but may not be to everyone's taste.

    Imaginative and Unique, a Great book

    I loved this book. It is very unique. It starts with a mystery,
    and from then on you cannot put it down. It is not your usual vampire book. It is a combination of mystery, action and science fiction. It is one of a kind, I highly recommend it.
