What would you sacrifice for someone you’ve loved for ever?
“I will live seven times and I will look for you and love you in each life. Will you follow?”
In 2073 on the remote and secretive island of Blessed, where rumour has it that no one ages and no children are born, a young couple is ritually slain.
Their deaths echo a moment ten centuries before, when, in the dark of the moon, a king and his queen were tragically torn apart. Their souls searched to be reunited as mother and son, artist and child, forbidden lovers, victims of a vampire, but only a bloody sacrifice will rekindle their true love.
