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.

“He wonders if a few moments of utter and total joy can be worth a lifetime of struggle. Maybe, he thinks. Maybe, if they're the right moments.” This is my first Marcus Sedgwick's book and I'm telling you is not going to be the last. I love how Marcus writes, It has a mood, a feel (the words)...

3.0 Midwinterblood
This year's Printz winner. Definitely compels you to keep reading to find out how the pars fit together. Reminiscent of Neil Gaiman. Would have to appeal to the right teen, not for everyone but definitely would promote analysis and discussion.
