Nicola Griffith
Nicola Griffith is a thriller, fantasy, and fiction author. Born in Yorkshire, England, Griffith taught arm-wrestling and self-defense to women before discovering her love for writing. She relocated to the US and now holds a Ph.D. in creative writing from Anglia Ruskin University. Her immigration turned into a case she won, and she is now a dual citizen of the UK/USA. The talented author has received many awards for her writing, including the Washington State Book Award, World Fantasy Award, and Lambda Literary Awards, to mention but a few. Griffith currently resides in Seattle with her Wife, author Kelley Eskridge.

Hild comes first in the Light of the World series. The book introduces Hild, a child born at the height of significant transition. In Britain, small kingdoms are being merged, at times violently. A new religion is replacing old gods, and Northumbria plans to overthrow Angles using every ruthless tool at his disposal. To say that Britain is in chaos is an understatement. Hild is the king’s niece. Thanks to her powerful curiosity, strong will, and ability to see the future, she quickly becomes indispensable to the king. This is until she leads the king astray, putting her family and loved ones in danger.

Hild is a blend of intuition and knowledge. She is brave and does not shrink from the violence that comes to her doorstep. However, she is also a lover of people, both male, and female and it is amazing how she serves them with a full heart. Her ambitious mother, who often referred to her daughter as the light of the world, pushes Hild to become the king’s seer. This task would later complicate and change the course of her life. It is easy to get entangled in Hild’s fate and wonder what will happen next. Griffith’s luminous prose evokes the violence and mysticism in this medieval era making it easy to get emotionally invested in the characters’ lives. She also brings to life the woman who becomes a Saint and contributes a lot to Christianity.

This book will take you back to the seventh century, and it is easy to get lost in this brutal yet beautiful world. Hild, who will later become Saint Hilda of Whitby, is an intriguing young lady who grew up to become the trainer of bishops in the Christian church in Britain. She was also a consultant for princes and kings, thanks to her uncanny ability to study nature and predict the future. While this woman is rarely talked about in history, her contributions to the growth of Christianity in Britain are hard to ignore. The girl who was born a pagan became a woman of supernatural intelligence and a Christian saint.
Hild is a well-researched story with characters that sit in your mind and refuse to leave. While this is a work of fiction, the historical bits are well done and merge beautifully with the story. The author has tried to recollect what would have been Saint Hilda’s life in her first twenty years of life. Her writing is poetic, almost lyrical, and once you get to the last page, it will feel like you are coming back from the past. It seems like everyone in this story is trying to survive. There is so much violence around them, and a few greedy individuals will do everything possible to get what they want.

Ammonite introduces Jeep, a planet in our vast universe. Centuries ago, a deadly virus killed all the men on this planet. A few women survived, but the virus forever altered them. Many generations later, a company from planet Earth arrives in Jeep, intending to exploit its resources. However, every man who lands on this planet ends up dead. Afraid to spread the virus, this greedy company quickly abandons its employees. Those left in Jeep are afraid and isolated from the women of planet Jeep. Will they get out of this planet alive? Will they survive the virus that almost wiped out an entire planet many years ago?

Marguerite Angelica is an anthropologist and one of the people who find themselves in Jeep thanks to The Company. She is to work as a SEC representative and also a new vaccine test subject. Angelica has always been gifted in studying people. However, she never connected with them. In Jeep, Angelica risks her life to uncover the biological secret-keeping women alive on this harsh planet. As she interacts with the women on this planet, she discovers that she is changing. Jeep is not only the home she has always wanted, but she also holds the seeds that can destroy the planet for good. Will The Company succeed in its quest?
Worldbuilding is an essential part of sci-fi, and the author had done an incredible job with this one. It is amazing how the women of Jeep have advanced healing powers, among other magical abilities. The pace picks up as soon as Angelica lands in planet Jeep, and many events unfold soon after. The journey she embarks on this planet is dangerous, but it is amazing how easily she relates to the natives. Why does she find it easy to connect to these women while she struggled to make connections her entire life? Griffith allows the reader into Angelica’s psychological journey. This woman transforms from an isolated individual with no friends to one with multiple ties to the Jeep women.

Ammonite is an intriguing sci-fi novel that takes you deep into a planet only inhabited by women. The story comes with a dramatic climax that will leave you breathless and a very satisfying ending. Angelica is a lovable yet complex character, and it is exciting following her through her adventures. Her decision to befriend the locals is admirable, and it is amazing how she and the other military women respect the natives on this new planet. There are also a few good secondary characters who will stay in your mind. It is beautiful how the author portrays the female characters in this book as simply people with no gender roles assigned to them.
