Now, in a bleak but breathtaking world of shimmering icebergs, deep blue crevasses, and never-ending sun, Wilde must unravel the mystery of this doomed couple. Were they the innocent victims of fear and superstition - or were they something far darker?
His search will lead from the barracks and battlefields of the Crimean War to the unexplored depths of the Antarctic Ocean, from the ill-fated charge of the Light Brigade to an age-old curse that survives to this day.
As the ice around the murdered lovers begins to melt, Wilde will have to grapple with a miracle - or a nightmare - in the making. For what is dead, it turns out, may not be gone. And here, at the very end of the known world, there's nowhere to hide and no place left for the living to run.

I loved Vigil and Bestiary but this book just didn't quite live up to his normal fast paced unusual stories. It is still a good book but not what I was expecting given his past efforts and the cover blurb on this book.
Surprising he's your interest word by word a lot of twists and turns and very favorable characters really enjoyed this surprising to myself voiceover
an interesting take on vampires
the discription of the Crimea war
he is great and easy to listen I think that hearing and reading are like comparing apples and organges, both are great
This was a book I didn't want to put down even to sleep. I hope to see more from this author and narrator. I hope the author leaves out the F word it is not needed.
I like how it takes us back and forth from on century to the current day. I love how it really engaged me in the history and just interesting things about the South Pole. I was a great listen for me and I didn't want to stop until the end. Only thing I didn't like is the swear words. Seriously I think all books could do without them!!!
I would not recommned because it is predictable, shallow and lacked a satisfactory ending.
I hated his pronounciation of Lieutenant. There is no F in the word!
sure, I did not have a better book to listen to at the time.
This book was full of surprises and a good fiction listen. The hero saves the girl but it was a bitter sweet ending
The story was just ok, good for listening during my work commutes... but nothing I would have used other precious time for.
The narration was good which really saved the book for me.
