After a breathtaking journey through Iceland, Vanessa Evanston finishes her dream vacation with her two best friends in the capital city of Reykjavik-and wakes up the next morning on the ground, on a tiny island 250 kilometers north, with no memory of how she got there.Luckily, handsome and kind-hearted local Gunnar Heimirsson stumbles upon her-unluckily, he can't explain her mysterious journey either. Nor can anyone explain why Vanessa soon discovers "last night" actually happened a year ago, and everyone thinks she's dead.Iceland is known for its folklore, but beyond the elves and mountain trolls, there are other creatures: beautiful, powerful, and vengeful, known as the huldufólk. Gunnar has been alive for a century, trapped by their curse after angering them. From the far flung Westfjords to the black sands of Reynisfjara, the answer to Vanessa's missing year might be connected to Gunnar's punishment-as well as his long-lost wife, Hera-but the truth lies somewhere in the realm of magic, myth, and love, and Vanessa has only just discovered fairytales are real.
