'You are a prophet and seer with the brightest mind in an age. Your blood is that of the man who should have been king ...That's what the king and his lords see. And they will kill you, one day' Britain in the seventh century - and the world is changing. Small kingdoms are merging, frequently and violently. Edwin, King of Northumbria, plots his rise to overking of all the Angles. Ruthless and unforgiving, he is prepared to use every tool at his disposal: blood, bribery, belief. Into this brutal, vibrant court steps Hild - Edwin's youngest niece. With her glittering mind and powerful curiosity, Hild has a unique way of reading the world. By studying nature, observing human behavior and matching cause with effect, she has developed the ability to make startlingly accurate predictions. It is a gift that can seem uncanny, even supernatural, to those around her. It is also a valuable weapon. Hild is indispensable to Edwin - unless she should ever lead him astray. The stakes are life and death: for Hild, for her family, for her loved ones, and for the increasing numbers who seek the protection of the strange girl who can see the future and lead men like a warrior. In this vivid, utterly compelling novel, Nicola Griffith has brought the Early Middle Ages to life in an extraordinary act of alchemy. Drawn from the story of St Hilda of Whitby - one of the most fascinating and pivotal figures of the age - Hild transports the reader into a mesmerising, unforgettable world.… (mer)

Fun read! A light (very light) version of Game of Thrones. I heard that there will be a sequel. I cannot wait. ( )
  RosanaDR | Apr 15, 2021 |
Outstanding. One of the best novels I've read in the past decade. Nicola Griffith is a master. ( )
  jeddak | Aug 27, 2020 |
A bit much in terms of the details of political machinations for me - but the character of Hild is so compelling that she pulled me through, despite my regular bewilderment as to who was the king of what or the son of whom.

If Nicola Griffith is indeed writing a sequel covering the next chapter of Hild's life, I'll be eager to read it. ( )
  elenaj | Jul 31, 2020 |
Read, favourite. ( )

I was on the waiting list for this book at the library for about seven months.

I tried. I really, really tried. But after three weeks, I'd only read 25 pages and had no desire to read anymore. Back it goes, for the next person who's been waiting seven months and might enjoy it.

Hild is a pulse-pounding page-turner. It is a rich and inspired work of fiction. It is a book that fills both the urge to be taken away and the urge to be brought closer, to be called, as the jackdaws call, both outward and home.
 
Hild is a book as loving as it is fierce, brilliant and accomplished. To read it felt like a privilege and a gift.
tillagd av karenb | ändraNPR, Amal el-Mohtar (Nov 4, 2013)
 
In short, Griffith triumphs with this intelligent, beautifully written, and meticulously researched novel.
tillagd av DorsVenabili | ändraBooklist, Kerri Price (betalvägg) (Oct 1, 2013)
 
Griffith goes boldly into the territory, lingering over landscape, wallowing in language, indulging the senses, mixing historical fact with feminist fiction in a sweeping panorama of peasants working, women weaving, children at play, and soldiers in battle: the Dark Ages transformed into a fantasy world of skirt and sword.
