    DescriptionSeven stories of passion and love separated by centuries but mysteriously intertwined--this is a tale of horror and beauty, tenderness and sacrifice. An archaeologist who unearths a mysterious artifact, an airman who finds himself far from home, a painter, a ghost, a vampire, and a Viking: the seven stories in this compelling novel all take place on the remote Scandinavian island of Blessed where a curiously powerful plant that resembles 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? From award-winning author Marcus Sedgwick comes a book about passion and preservation and ultimately an exploration of the bounds of love. A "Publishers Weekly" Best Children's Book of 2013 A "Kirkus Reviews "Best Teen Book of 2013

    Review quote
    Starred Review, "Publishers Weekly", December 17th 2012 issue: ."..a story that's simultaneously romantic, tragic, horrifying, and transcendental is more than enough to hold readers' attention, no matter their age." -- "Publishers Weekly", starred reviewStarred Review, "Booklist", December 1st 2012 issue: "Part love story, part mystery, part horror, this is as much about the twisting hand of fate as it is about the mutability of folk tales. Its strange spell will capture you." - "Booklist", starred review Starred Review, "Kirkus", December 1st 2012 issue: ""The Time Traveler's Wife" meets "Lost" in this chilling exploration of love and memory . . . Haunting, sophisticated and ultimately exquisite. " -- "Kirkus", starred review Starred Review, "BCCB", February 2013 issue: "Sedgwick's prose is unadorned yet melancholic. . ." -- "BCCB", starred review Starred Review, "The Horn Book", March/April 2013 issue: "Sedgwick's prose is taut, careful, and chilling." -- "The Horn Book", starred review "Reminiscent of David Mitchell's Cloud Atlas . . . stark, suspenseful writing." -- "School Library Journal"
