Abstract:

"Seven linked vignettes unfold on a Scandinavian island inhabited--throughout various time periods--by Vikings, vampires, ghosts, and a curiously powerful plant"--Provided by publisher.

On the remote Scandinavian island of Blessed, a curiously powerful plant that resembles a dragon grows. What secrets lurk beneath the surface of this idyllic countryside? And what might be powerful enough to break the cycle of midwinterblood? We travel from 2073 to the age of the Vikings and back to Time Unknown, as we meet an archaeologist, a painter, a ghost, a vampire, and are carried on a current of cursed love and reincarnation.
