"By turns gripping and poignant, Hall of Smoke is a compelling debut"

Canadian HM Long’s Hall of Smoke (Titan, £8.99), the first book of a duology, blends epic fantasy and a Viking-inspired culture in an assured, fast-paced first-person narrative. Hessa, a priestess of the goddess of war, has the ability to turn her enemies’ bones to dust with a single scream. When tasked by her goddess to slay a traveller, Hessa disobeys and is banished to the mountains. She returns to her village only to find it pillaged and her loved ones slaughtered.
