midwinterblood

Midwinterblood is the latest novel from award-winning children’s author Marcus Sedgwick and is published by Indigo, an imprint of Orion. Sedgwick’s White Crow was my favourite book of 2010, described in AMO’s review as “a scary, heart-warming, intelligent book.” It was therefore with great anticipation that I began reading Midwinterblood, a breathtaking love story that spans across centuries and genres. Ultimately, Midwinterblood poses the question: What would you sacrifice for someone you’ve loved for ever?

Following the rapidly entwining lives of two young girls in the sleepy English seaside village of Winterfold, it is a story both chilling and beautiful in equal measures.
