Following their adventures in The Bear and the Nightingale and The Girl in the Tower, Vasya and Morozko return in this stunning conclusion to the bestselling Winternight Trilogy, battling enemies mortal and magical to save both Russias, the seen and the unseen.
Reviewers called Katherine Arden’s novels The Bear and the Nightingale and The Girl in the Tower “lyrical,” “emotionally stirring,” and “utterly bewitching.” The Winternight Trilogy introduced an unforgettable heroine, Vasilisa Petrovna, a girl determined to forge her own path in a world that would rather lock her away. Her gifts and her courage have drawn the attention of Morozko, the winter-king, but it is too soon to know if this connection will prove a blessing or a curse.
Now Moscow has been struck by disaster. Its people are searching for answers—and for someone to blame. Vasya finds herself alone, beset on all sides. The Grand Prince is in a rage, choosing allies that will lead him on a path to war and ruin. A wicked demon returns, stronger than ever and determined to spread chaos. Caught at the center of the conflict is Vasya, who finds the fate of two worlds resting on her shoulders. Her destiny uncertain, Vasya will uncover surprising truths about herself and her history as she desperately tries to save Russia, Morozko, and the magical world she treasures. But she may not be able to save them all.

Series: The Winternight Trilogy (#3)
Fabulous ending to a thrilling, beautiful trilogy. Definitely the best of the three. As usual, Arden weaves together magic, religion, spirits, and history into a wonderfully vivid and lush tale. I really appreciated seeing Vasya coming into her own in this final chapter. This was chock full of lovel...
"I am allowed to want things, winter-king." It was a lovely end to this series, one that I tried to delay with all my might until it was nearly time to return the book to the library. My heart is caught somewhere between grief and joy. I love Arden's writing: her prose, her twists, and turns, her ab...
Nach dem College lebte die Autorin Katherine Arden drei Jahre in Vermont und zwei Jahre in Moskau. Kein Wunder, dass sie irgendwann genug von kalten Temperaturen hatte. Sie zog nach Hawaii, arbeitete auf einer Farm und wohnte in einem Zelt am Strand. Eine Farm weiter lebte ein 5-jähriges Mädchen. Si...
Wow. Just wow. I was breathless and in tears within minutes of starting book #3 (have tissues near by) and was full of anger through most of the book. I can honestly say make sure you have this one ready to go after finishing book #2. Vasya comes into her own in this one and we are given a glimpse i...
This is the final book in this trilogy, following on from The Bear and the Nightingale and The Girl in the Tower, both of which were a tough act to follow - this is, however, a series that really works for me in a lot of ways, particularly in terms of its use of language. At the end of the previou...
