Midwinterblood

Midwinterblood

by Marcus Sedgwick

An archaeologist who unearths a mysterious artifact, an airman far from home, a painter, a ghost, a vampire, and a Viking: seven tales of passion and love, separated by centuries but mysteriously intertwined. All of this takes place on a remote Scandinavian island, where a curiously powerful plant resembling a dragon grows...

What binds these stories together? What secrets lurk beneath the surface of this idyllic countryside? And what might be powerful enough to break the cycle of midwinterblood? This is a tale of horror and beauty, tenderness and sacrifice, passion and preservation, and ultimately, an exploration of the bounds of love.
