The writing style and prose are simplistic and the plotting speeds ahead extremely quickly. A supernatural/metaphysical element is unconvincing and eye-roll inducing when it makes one of its occasional appearances. A threat of serial killers targeting MS patients on a cross country crime wave headed for the protagonist is, while unlikely and by-the-numbers-spare, at least something. The protagonist spends the whole of this short book in a state of bitterness and unpleasantness. Not much to recommend here for me.… (mere)

Back in 2018, when I was finally able to get around to reading the first book in this series, I wrapped up that endeavor being impressed by the effort that Ms. Griffith had put into the novel, but had to admit that I more respected the work than loved it.

Flashing forward to 2024, I find myself in much the same boat. Hild is a great character, and I do love the way that Griffith writes about the landscape and environment of the England of the period as a character in and of itself. However, it does appear to be that now Dr. Griffith (she has picked up a doctorate in medieval history in the interim) is undertaking the endeavor of writing her own chronicle of England, and I'm not sure that I'm signing up for that in the long run. Here's the thing: Originally billed as the "Light of the Word" series, Hild's story is now being billed as the "Hild Sequence," and a sequence sounds significantly longer than a trilogy. While I applaud Griffith's ambition, a lot of people have come up with ambitious writing programs that they were/are unable to conclude.

Realizing that this all sounds like damning with faint praise, I do expect to be looking at the follow-on books.

This is an engrossing book that drew me in deeply. The level of detail that Griffith weaves into the story is impressive, but never gets in the way of the narrative. Anyone who is interested in early medieval history will enjoy this novel. (It is only the fact that, in accordance with my rule, I have not yet re-read this book that prevents me giving it 5 stars.)

[Audiobook note: the reader, Pearl Hewitt, does a fantastic job.]
