One to watch

Just glancing through the Bookseller product review I spotted this gem, under the "Ones to watch" category for January 2010, described by the Times as "An accomplished, entertaining blend of historical fiction and dark fantasy":

"Jasper Kent
Bantam, £7.99, 1st Jan 2010

This tale of vampiric intervention in Napoleon's invasion of Russia in 1812 seems a more likely commercial prospect than Robert Masello's Blood and Ice, which features Crimean vampires in Antarctica, due from Vintage in June."

You couldn't make it up.
