Editorial Reviews

Review

“One of the best novels, period.” ―Dorothy Allison

“Truly, truly remarkable.” ―Karen Joy Fowler

“Extraordinary...[Hild] resonates to many of the same chords as Beowulf, the legends of King Arthur, The Lord of the Rings, and Game of Thrones.” ―Neal Stephenson

Hild is a book as loving as it is fierce, brilliant, and accomplished. To read it felt like a privilege and a gift.” ―NPR

“Terrific… Griffith has taken what little is known of the life of St. Hilda and imagined a vibrant, if brutal, world... Hild [is] a pleasure to sink into.” ―The Washington Post

“Sharp as steel, clear as garnet, essential and sensual and right, Griffith's telling of Hild's adventures offers us something far better than mere comfort: the lure of the sublime.” ―The Seattle Times

“Splendid...I can hardly wait for the next.” ―Los Angeles Review of Books

“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. If it wasn't like this, it should have been--and I'm sure that it was!” ―Manda Scott
