The Storm Beneath a Midnight Sun

Alexander Dan Vilhjalmsson

Write Review

Rated 0


Returning to the world of Shadows of the Short Days, it's time to go beyond Reykjavik to Hrimland's remote islands . . .


War on the mainland is draining Reykjavik. For some, the remote islands off Hrimland's coast are their only hope of survival.

Elka, a recovering addict, has fled there with her son Solvi. In their village they find a new life - all thanks to the Deep, a peculiar power their neighbours praise for the booming fishing industry. Everything seems perfect, but Solvi does not trust the people who take his mother in.

Kari is a professor of sorcery, recruited for a career-making venture - an excavation of an ancient power. He must go deep into the magical wasteland, find what is buried there, and turn the tide of the war forever.

But the world might not be ready for the storm he will unearth . . .
