Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

A remarkable young woman blazes her own trail, from the backwoods of Russia to the court of Moscow, in the exhilarating sequel to Katherine Arden's bestselling debut novel, The Bear and the Nightingale.

Katherine Arden's enchanting first novel introduced readers to an irresistible heroine. Vasilisa has grown up at the edge of a Russian wilderness, where snowdrifts reach the eaves of her family's wooden house and there is truth in the fairy tales told around the fire. Vasilisa's gift for seeing what others do not won her the attention of Morozko--Frost, the winter demon from the stories--and together they saved her people from destruction. But Frost's aid comes at a cost, and her people have condemned her as a witch.

Now Vasilisa faces an impossible choice. Driven from her home by frightened villagers, the only options left for her are marriage or the convent. She cannot bring herself to accept either fate and instead chooses adventure, dressing herself as a boy and setting off astride her magnificent stallion Solovey.

But after Vasilisa prevails in a skirmish with bandits, everything changes. The Grand Prince of Moscow anoints her a hero for her exploits, and she is reunited with her beloved sister and brother, who are now part of the Grand Prince's inner circle. Read More chevron_right

I love this fearless girl with all my heart and can 't wait to go on another reckless adventure with her.
   Couldn’t put it down
The action in this story was so well done that I couldn t stop reading.
   Solid but Less than its forebear
We learn about Sasha's lives, which were veiled in the first book, as well as Vasilisa's venturing into the greater world, unlike the first book, the characters here feel a little deeper with action that borders on stock - film. Although the foreshadowing of his betrayal is well done, the villain's motives, his origin, are too veiled for my taste, and Arden researches very well and I look forward to the third book.
This book, this series, enchanted me utterly. What a gift to be able to read and transported by the imagination and the beautiful prose of this writer.
   Best of the 3
It is difficult to put down action-packed.
   To Russia with Love
The Winternight Trilogy was a whimsical story bursting with beautiful, magical, and religious overtones. The fantasy of reward trials was a human ride.
   Gripping and well worth it!
This second book has been loved in the trilogy! Look forward to the next book!
   Wonderful Story
I loved this story so much. I felt like I was living a fairy tail in old Russia. Such a great story''. I can 't wait for the next book. This is one of my fav stories for this year.
   Brilliant sequel to a terrific novel
I was really impressed with Katherine Arden's first novel, The Bear and the Nightingale, and I was a little concerned about the sophomore - slippage with the second book in the series. The girl in the tower is one of the richest and most enthralling stories I have ever read, and this comes from someone who has been reading for nearly 60 years. The characters, particularly Vasilisa, are drawn beautifully and compelling. I couldn 't wait to find out how it would all work out and at the same time read the fact that the book would end.
   A gorgeous continuation of a beautifully written story!
MY HEARRRRTTTTTTTTT! This is just as beautiful as the bear and the nightingale and my heart aches and yearns for more. I really wish it had not ended because I want to know WHAT NEXT is.
