Rating
Seven 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.This title has Common Core connections.A Publishers Weekly Best Children's Book of 2013A Kirkus Reviews Best Teen Book of 2013

Reviews

..".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 review "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 "The Time Traveler's Wife meets Lost in this chilling exploration of love and memory . . . Haunting, sophisticated and ultimately exquisite." --Kirkus, starred review "Sedgwick's prose is unadorned yet melancholic. . ." --Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, starred review "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
