Heng Lee is a goatherd in the remote mountains northeast of Chiang Rai in northern Thailand, very close to the border with Laos. It is a tight-knit community where everyone knows one another.

Heng gets sick all of a sudden but not too sick to take the goats out, until one day, he has to go to see the local shaman because he has started fainting. There are no medical doctors in the vicinity, and the Shaman has been good enough for most people for centuries.

The Shaman takes some specimens and comes to the conclusion that Heng’s kidneys have stopped functioning and so has little time left to live. The battle is on to save Heng’s life, but there are other forces at work too.

What will become of Heng, his family, and the rest of the community if he takes the Shaman’s advice?

A different vampire story.

l couldn't fault the narration and the story was certainly not like anything l had listened to before. lt held my interest and was an interesting concept. l don't think l would call it a laugh out loud comedy but that may be my humour type. l am also torn between 4 and 5 stars.
