Nicola Griffith: Hild (2013, Farrar, Straus and Giroux) 5 stars

In seventh-century Britain, small kingdoms are merging, frequently and violently. A new religion is coming …

Striking and vivid, a book that I didn’t know I was waiting for.

5 stars

I’ll read the follow-up soon, but I don’t want to spoil it by binge-reading the whole (published) story
