About Temple Of No God
After a brutal war between the gods, Hessa – High Priestess of the Eangen – has brokered a fragile peace. Through great sacrifice, she has forged an alliance between warring tribes and introduced her people to the true god.
But a new threat is growing across the southern border. In the remnants of the once-great Arpa Empire, three factions are vying for the imperial throne, and the vast well of raw magical power only accessible to the Arpa Emperor. Already beating back former Arpa legionaries at her borders, Hessa knows she cannot let this chance slip by. She must intervene, for the safety of her people.
With the peace she has sacrificed so much for at stake, Hessa must venture into the heart of enemy territory, where warring Arpa factions are not the only danger she must face. A sinister new cult is on the rise, one with the power to suck the life from everything it touches. With enemies on every side and her fragile alliance beginning to waver, Hessa must decide who to trust – no matter what it may cost her…

Waiting On Wednesday – Temple Of No God
I realise that this is a next year release but I am beyond ecstatic about it and as soon as I saw Temple Of No Gods I jumped on here to write this post. I adored Hall Of Smoke. I gave it a glowing review that praised the world building, the character focus, excellent mythology and HML’s raw and thoughtful delivery of the narrative. Hall Of Smoke finished on a great note and I am anxious to find out where Hessa’s path takes her next. There were some compelling ideas in the works at the end of Hessa’s first outing and I am hoping to see them develop into new dimensions for Hessa’s character.
Hall Of Smoke is an absolute must read for fantasy fans and I have no doubt that Temple Of No God is going to be as good, maybe even better. The synopsis is slightly too vague for my liking but having Hessa face off against unknown cultists gives me hope that H. M. Long has more gods and branches of mythology for us to meet and explore next year, as well as monsters and other vicious beings hiding in the mist and shadows. Now I just have to sit and wait for 8 months before I can find out. Unless I manage to score an advanced copy. I’ll have to keep an eye out on Netgalley. If anyone sees it, let me know!
Thank you so much for stopping by to check out my latest Waiting On Wednesday. I feel like fantasy is going to play a huge part in my blogging this year. We all need stories to take us away from current events once in a while. If your looking for somewhere to go, Hall Of Smoke is certainly worth your time, just be careful in there. I hope you enjoyed the post and please share with me your waiting list for books in 2021 and beyond.
