"A wonderful adventure! Dark Water Daughter swept me to the high seas with its captivating story, rich original lore, fascinating characters, and slow-burn romance. Immersive from start till end, this is a hard one to put down." Sue Lynn Tan, Sunday Times bestselling author of Daughter of the Moon Goddess "Intricately crafted, stunningly unique, and so vivid you can almost taste the frigid air of the Winter Sea, Dark Water Daughter is my favorite H.M. Long book yet." Genevieve Gornichec, author of The Witch's Heart "Dark Water Daughter is a unique and breath-taking slice of high seas fantasy - H. M. Long gives us deliciously complex characters to root for and a world full of surprises. I didn't know I needed these fantasy pirates and their freezing ocean until they sailed into my life. Enormous fun!" Jen Williams, award-winning author of The Winnowing Flame trilogy "Dark Water Daughter is a compelling, propulsive adventure that serves as a spectacular start to Long's new series. The vast world and intriguing lore are complex in a way that feels effortless; it might just be Long's best work yet. I was utterly engrossed." M.K. Lobb, author of Seven Faceless Saints "Long opens up a gripping, wildly original universe packed to the brim with wonder: sentient figureheads, songs that harness the wind, and a cast of rogues, villains, and exiles in pursuit of freedom-sometimes with terrible cost. Every twist left me surprised and enthralled. Fantasy readers, come aboard and enjoy the ride." Allison Epstein, author of A Tip for the Hangman "Dark Water Daughter is excellent. Fresh fantasy grounded in seafaring lore and the golden age of piracy - a fantastical 17th century-esque epic adventure. I can't wait for more." Christopher Irvin, author of Ragged "Outstanding naval fantasy; Robin Hobb meets Master and Commander." Peter McLean, author of Priest of Bones "Dark Water Daughter is a ripsnorting, swashbuckling storm of a book. I adored the salty, wintery world (the Age of Sail with a magical twist!) and its folklore: shipboard weather witches, mysterious mages and sentient, ghostly figureheads. I plunged head first into this story and didn't come up for air until the very end." Kell Woods, author of After the Forest "Flintlock fantasy at its best! If you're a Pirates of the Caribbean fan looking for a fresh take that still scratches the itch, Dark Water Daughter is for you. This incredible tale blends elements of classic pirate fantasy with Long's unique, wintry touch and lively voice to create an entirely new world and a fascinating lore-based magic system. Fast-paced action and eye-popping twists and turns will have you glued to this book until the very last page." M.J. Kuhn, author of Among Thieves PRAISE FOR TEMPLE OF NO GOD "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
