Review: TEMPLE OF NO GOD by H. M. Long


Rating: 1/5 stars

DNF at 54%. 

I am very sad that this series isn’t working for me. I genuinely wanted to love it. I read Hall of Smoke last year and thought it was alright, but something about mythology and books about gods has just never worked for me, and this series is based on Norse mythology. I liked Hall of Smoke enough that I wanted to try out Temple of No God, but unfortunately, this book just wasn’t for me.

I had trouble connecting to the story. At the halfway mark, I couldn’t even tell you what was going on. I hadn’t picked it up in five days and had no desire to return to the story, so that was a sign that I needed to quit. I feel like this is a case of “it’s not you, it’s me” because there’s nothing inherently wrong with this book; it just simply wasn’t working for me and I had no emotional attachment to any of the characters. 

I really like Hannah Long as a person though and I follow her on Instagram and she’s adorable, so I’m really sad I haven’t connected with her books so far. I look forward to seeing what she comes out with after the Hall of Smoke series is complete because she’s an author I’d definitely read more from in the future.
