Winter Break turns deadly when Rory Quinn and her treasure-hunter grandmother travel to Iceland in search of an enchanted artifact. The mission: to recover a blood-infused stone that legend says will lead its possessor to a doorway to hell. Their client’s grandson, Einar, stole the stone at the request of his favorite heavy metal band. As part of a publicity stunt, the band plans to open the closest doorway, rumored to exist deep inside one of Iceland’s many volcanoes, on Christmas.
Rory, Gram, and Einar’s twin brother, Gunnar, have only three days to recover the missing artifact or else the band will unleash unspeakable evil into the Icelandic wilderness. As the team grows closer to Einar, Rory is growing closer to Gunnar, too. But she can tell he’s keeping secrets from her. Big ones, that when revealed, will cause her to question almost everything she’s ever believed in and threaten the very lives of those she loves the most.
