    Inside this book

    This is a book about mysteries and miracles. About medicine and myth. About cold iron, red blood, and neverending ice. It’s a book about survival and creation. It’s a book that wonders why, and a book that asks why not. It’s a book in love with order and a book that craves a little chaos.

Welcome to our magical medical mystery tour.

He said no matter where his body hurt, all he needed was a good bleeding to make the aches and pains go away.

Nobody could explain it. So I felt it was up to me to figure it out
