Some brief overview of book

A brilliant, lush, sweeping historical novel about the rise of the most powerful woman of the Middle Ages Hild In seventh-century Britain, small kingdoms are merging, frequently and violently. A new religion is coming ashore; the old gods are struggling, their priests worrying. Hild is the king's youngest niece, and she has a glimmering mind and a natural, noble authority.

She will become a fascinating woman and one of the pivotal figures of the Middle Ages Saint Hilda of Whitby. But now she has only the powerful curiosity of a bright child, a will of adamant, and a way of seeing the worldof studying nature, of matching cause with effect, of observing her surroundings closely and predicting what will happen nextthat can seem uncanny, even supernatural, to those around her. Her uncle, Edwin of Northumbria, plots to become overking of the Angles, ruthlessly using every tool at his disposal blood, bribery, belief.

Hild establishes a place for herself at his side as the king's seer. And she is indispensableunless she should ever lead the king 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 read the world and see the future.

Hild is a young woman at the heart of the violence, subtlety, and mysticism of the early Middle Agesall of it brilliantly and accurately evoked by Nicola Griffith's luminous prose. Working from what little historical record is extant, Griffith has brought a beautiful, brutal world to vivid, absorbing life.
