Review

Deeply engaging ... her insight into human nature and eye for telling detail is as keen as that of the extraordinary Hild herself. The novel resonates to many of the same chords as Beowulf, the legends of King Arthur, Lord of the Rings, and Game of Thrones - to the extent that Hild begins to feel like the classic on which those books are based (Neal Stephenson)

'Vivid, vital, and visceral, Hild's history reads like a thriller' (Val McDermid)

'You could describe Hild as being like Game of Thrones without the dragons, but this is so much deeper than that, so much richer. A glorious, intensely passionate walk through an entirely real landscape, Hild leads us into the dark ages and makes them light, and tense, and edgy and deeply moving. The research is flawless, the characters fully alive' (Manda Scott)

'Nicola Griffith is an awe-inspiring visionary, and I am telling everyone to snatch this book up. Hild is not just one of the best historical novels I have ever read - I think it's one of the best novels, period. It sings with pitch-perfect emotional resonance, and I damn well believe in this woman and everyone she engages. I finished the book full of gratitude that it exists, and longing for more' (Dorothy Allison)

'What a fabulous book! Hild has all the joys of historical fiction - transportation into a strange, finely detailed world - along with complex characters and a beautiful evocation of the natural world. But the tensions of the gathering plot make Hild feel like a quick read - too quick! I fell into this world completely and was sorry to come out. Truly, truly remarkable' (Karen Joy Fowler)

Book Description

A literary triumph - an epic historical novel that brings the Dark Ages into the light
