Praise

“I am obsessed with what H. M. Long has created—the clear, vivid prose, the captivating mythology, and the absolute force of nature that is Hessa. Utterly enthralling, and a world I loved getting lost in. I can’t wait for the next book.” – Claire Legrand, New York Times-bestselling author of Furyborn

“H.M. Long takes us on another epic, fast-paced adventure in Temple of No God. As exciting and gripping as its predecessor, this standalone in the same world starts with a bang and doesn’t let up, full of intrigue, betrayal, and action sequences that don’t disappoint. Hessa is a heroine to be reckoned with.” – Genevieve Gornichec, author of The Witch’s Heart

“Once again, H. M. Long pulls us effortlessly into a landscape of warring gods, tribes and impulses. What a joy to return to Hessa’s side as, having battled herself and won, she draws her axes again – this time to build a better world. Sure, there’s a fantastic fight scene for everyone and the pace never falters, but where this book really shines is in its emotionally nuanced depiction of character. I can’t wait to see what she does next.” – Lucy Holland, author of Sistersong

“Long certainly made her entrance known with Hall of Smoke, but with Temple of No God, she solidifies herself as one of the great new voices in epic fantasy. Temple of No God is a story about adventure, war, and godly strife, but at its heart, it is also a poetic yet action-packed exploration of grief, longing, and obligation. Bold characters, shocking twists, and heart-pounding action will keep you turning pages long after lights out.” – M. J. Kuhn, author of Among Thieves

“This book is a bonfire on a bleak winter night. Exciting and dangerous, brilliantly plotted and paced, this is the perfect followup to Hall of Smoke. Come for the axe-smash battles, the crumbling empire, the dangerous cults, and the perfect puppy companion, and then stay for all of that stuff, because it rules.” – Joshua Johnson, author of The Forever Sea

“While knowledge and responsibility weigh on Hessa in a manner reminiscent of many warrior-legends of popular European mythology and heroic fantasy, Temple of No God does not succumb to the dreary moroseness of the aftermath of conquest. Instead, we get to witness Hessa relish her role as victor while contending with her status as a vanquisher. Fantasy readers who like their heroes battle-hardened yet thoughtful and tender–not in spite of war but because of it–will enjoy Temple of No God.” – Suyi Davies Okungbowa, author of Son of the Storm

“Epic fantasy at its best, combining quests with a good dash of grittiness but also heart and charm” – Grimdark Magazine

“Temple of No God is the kind of sequel that I really love, one that takes what the first book did and does something that feels connected, but doesn’t retread the same ground.” — Trans-Scribe

“A well plotted and refreshing adventure.” — Run Along the Shelves

“A thrilling adventurous tale, brilliantly brought to life.” — Nicdracas

“A perfect adult fantasy read with intrigue, magic, and violence galore.” — Book Mad Librarian


PRAISE FOR HALL OF SMOKE:

“Hall of Smoke is the kind of fantasy I love, filled with both high stakes and tender, nuanced human emotion. Add to that lyrical writing and intriguing world building, and you have a truly special debut. Not to be missed.” – Jessica Cluess, author of the Kingdom on Fire series and House of Dragons

“Long gives us a flawed hero, a woman battling grief, rage and – perhaps most poignant of all – doubt. It is thrilling to stand beside Hessa as she stares into the abyss and begins to reassemble herself there. Long’s writing is elegantly understated, filling out Hessa’s complex world without ever stranding us – we are with her through every stumble and triumph. Hall of Smoke is ultimately a book about what it means to have your deepest illusions shattered and still scrape together the courage to begin again. A vivid and compelling debut.” – Lucy Holland, author of Sistersong

“Hall of Smoke is a breath of fresh air. The world is unique, the fights are top-notch, and the cast is unforgettable. A dazzling, fast-paced story with clashing civilizations, squabbling gods, and an indomitable heroine caught in the center of it all, Hessa’s is a tale that will grab you from the very first line and won’t let you go. I can’t wait to see what Long comes up with next.” – Genevieve Gornichec, author of The Witch’s Heart

“Hessa is a brilliantly written heroine, and I could easily have spent another 400 pages with her. The book’s world-building is intricate and refreshingly original, and it all ramps up to a finale that is the dictionary definition of epic.” – Allison Epstein, author of A Tip for the Hangman

“The story world was rich and real, and I have rarely read a fantasy novel that transported me like Hall of Smoke did. If you are a fan of myths and legends where gods and goddesses roam the earth and meddle with the poor mortals that serve them, you are in for an absolute treat with this book.” – M. J. Kuhn, author of Among Thieves
