I read a few pages and then this shot straight to the top of my reading list! Katherine Arden has created a beautiful, fantastical version of historical Russia, weaving in the traditional folklore and legends of Russia with real historical figures. The characters were charming, and their dilemmas were powerful and affecting. I’ll be eagerly waiting for anything else Katherine Arden writes.

“The Bear and the Nightingale is an enchanting mix of fairy tale, fantasy, and historical fiction set in medieval Russia. Nestled between the northern wilderness and civilization is a village where old and new traditions live side by side. Vasya, the last daughter of Pyotr and Marina, is born on the howling winds of autumn. Different from the others in her village, she is destined to be like her grandmother and is gifted with powers by birthright. As time goes by, Vasya is tested. Caught in the conflict between the old spirits and the new religion, Vasya must do everything in her power to save her family and village. Arden's novel is the rich, mesmerizing fairy tale you've been waiting for!”
