Summary

Am I of the growing world, bound to the everlasting root, or am I simply a red-blooded man, destined to die? -Weed

The seductive central character from the internationally acclaimed Poison Diaries, Weed, re-awakens in this book to a world where he must try to do good and learn from his allies in the plant world. But will this half-man, half-plant creature's desire for revenge weaken him, leading him to use the potency of his plant knowledge to do evil as well as good?

Powered by his connection to both healing and vicious plant life such as Belladonna, Hemlock, and Cannabis, Weed struggles against time and the temptations of the seductive women he meets on his journeys, traveling from his home at Alnwick Castle in Northumberland to Lindisfarne, London and the island of Anglesey in an adventure of love, betrayal, murder and salvation.

Weed was conceived by Jane Northumberland The Duchess of Northumberland creator of the Poison Garden at Alnwick Castle and author of The Little Book of Poisons, Potions and Aphrodisiacs.

Weed is brilliantly evoked here by Hugh Sington for the legions of fans worldwide who have been anxiously awaiting his return now Weed is poised to rejoin the mortal world...
