SPOILER ALERT. An interesting sequel to Anno Dracula, if not the fulfilling meal that you might have liked. This consists of two novels, one set in the Battlefields & skies of the Western Front in World War One & the other a novella set in an English country house in the 1920's. There are moments of brilliance, with lots of in jokes, & amusing asides, but the central plotting seems to let Newman down. It feels very cinematic @ times, which might be what you're looking for, & indeed, there is a film script to this effect @ the end of the book. The interaction between various protagonists @ times seems forced & Newman spends a lot of time in an appendix trying to explain this. Don't get me wrong, I DID like this, I just found it wasn't quite the follow up that I expected from the seminal Anno Dracula. The 1920's tale can easily be missed & really only for Newman purists. (Is there such a thing?). I will look forward to the next instalment with interest If not the enthusiasm I did this.

A cracking adventure, only slowing at times. I actually preferred the novella in the last section of the book, a tribute to wodehouse's jeeves and a mush mash of detective novels. Lots of fun in the last part.
