What would you sacrifice for someone you've loved forever?
The unmissable winner of the Michael L. Printz Award, MIDWINTERBLOOD is a dark, breathtaking paranormal love story like no other, beautifully told in seven parts and spanning ten centuries. Have you ever had the feeling that you've lived another life? Been somewhere that has felt totally familiar even when you've never been there before, or felt that you've known someone even though you are meeting them for the first time? Eric and Merle loved and lost one another, and have been searching for each other through time ever since.
This novel comprises seven short stories, each of them influenced by a moon - flower moon, harvest moon, hunter's moon, blood moon - and travels from 2073 back in time to the days of the dark of the moon and the Viking saga.
Across the different tales, the two souls appear as lovers, mother and son, brother and sister, and artist and child as they come close to finding each other before facing the ultimate sacrifice. Beautifully imagined and intricately and cleverly structured, this is a heart-wrenching paranormal romance with the hallmark Sedgwick gothic touch.
