Some memories are better off lost in the mist... Eight months ago, British academic Paul Ansell lost his lover-and all the memories of their time together-in an accident at Iceland's Gullfoss Falls. Returning to the misty island country to resume his study of the bloodthirsty Viking Egil Skallagrimsson is tough as he struggles to pull his life back together. First, there's his colleague, Mags, who treats him like glass, and summer student Alex, who peppers him with discomforting questions. Then there's Icelandic jet-boat driver Viggo, a tattooed, modern-day Viking who won't say much about how they know each other. Leaving Paul to wonder if their volcanic attraction is fuelled by a desire to make a fresh start, or desperation to forget the past. As more fragments of his lost memories fall into place, Paul is unsure if he can trust himself, much less anyone around him. And he begins to suspect his accident was nothing of the kind.
