Epic fantasy featuring warrior priestesses and fickle gods at war, for readers of Brian Staveley's Chronicles of the Unhewn Throne. Hessa is an Eangi: a warrior priestess of the Goddess of War, with the power to turn an enemy's bones to dust with a scream. Banished for disobeying her goddess's command to murder a traveller, she prays for forgiveness alone on a mountainside. While she is gone, raiders raze her village and obliterate the Eangi priesthood. Grieving and alone, Hessa - the last Eangi - must find the traveller and atone for her weakness and secure her place with her loved ones in the High Halls. As clans from the north and legionaries from the south tear through her homeland, slaughtering everyone in their path Hessa strives to win back her goddess' favour. Beset by zealot soldiers, deceitful gods, and newly-awakened demons at every turn, Hessa burns her path towards redemption and revenge. But her journey reveals a harrowing truth: the gods are dying and the High Halls of the afterlife are fading. Soon Hessa's trust in her goddess weakens with every unheeded prayer. Thrust into a battle between the gods of the Old World and the New, Hessa realizes there is far more on the line than securing a life beyond her own death. Bigger, older powers slumber beneath the surface of her world. And they're about to wake up.

Hard time staying engaged in the plot. But it was nice to listen to.

Ontario‘s stay-at-home order lifted for my region yesterday, and non-essential stores have been allowed to open for the first time since Dec 24th. So where did I go this afternoon? The bookstore 🥳 Oh how I missed perusing the shelves. These books, as well as a couple for my daughter not pictured, came home with me. #bookhaul

CarolineLovesToRead @MsMelissa are you in Ottawa area? 2y
MsMelissa @CarolineLovesToRead I am 😊 How about you? 2y
CarolineLovesToRead @MsMelissa hello neighbour! I live in Casselman now but born in Ottawa and work in Ottawa. Actually working from home now. But looking forward to this pandemic ending to be able to work downtown and close to all the shops. 📚 2y
MsMelissa @CarolineLovesToRead Hi! I‘m a transplant from the Toronto area, where I grew up, but have been here for almost 22 years now (I still refuse to cheer for the Senators though, I‘m a die-hard Maple Leafs fan 😂). I‘m also working from home, and since I‘ve become so good at it I have my doubts I‘ll ever work in an office again, at least not full time. I seriously miss just going out and about though! 2y
MsMelissa @Soubhiville It sounds like it is going to be a fun one. 2y
CarolineLovesToRead @MsMelissa I only cheer for the Sens when my HABS aren't playing. 😁 there were no Sens when I was growing up and being from French Canadian family, you have no choice but to cheer for HABS. 2y
KVanRead @CarolineLovesToRead Yay, another Ottawa Litten! I live in San Francisco now, but love keeping up with you folks in my hometown.❤️🇨🇦 2y

Viking inspired fantasy. A little slow story of atonement.
