Photojournalist Michael Wilde has had his life on hold since his partner and lover Krissy was critically injured in a climbing accident. She's in a coma with no chance of coming out of it. Her parents blame him and insist that she'll improve. Her sister knows the truth and tries to keep Michael informed about Krissy's condition. Hoping to get Michael back on track, his editor at Eco-Travel presents him with an assignment he hopes Michael can't refuse – a chance to go to Antarctica on an NSF visa to interview scientists and workers at Point Adélie. So, it's off to Antarctica, unaware that this story is going to take him places he never expected.

From official release/information:

Product Description: After months of seclusion following a tragic accident, contemporary journalist Michael Wilde could use a distraction – not to mention some work. And when his editor offers to send him to Antarctica on assignment, he jumps at the chance.

So it is that Michael finds himself at the end of the earth, living amid scientists and explorers at a research station at the South Pole. But when two frozen bodies are found at the bottom of the ocean, he enters a whole new realm of discovery. Astoundingly, these two young outcasts – one of Florence Nightingale's nurses and a member of the infamous Light Brigade – carry a deadly curse in their blood: one that enables them to rise from their frozen tomb and live again.
