The Winter of the Witch - Winternight Trilogy (Hardback)Katherine Arden (author)
- Not available
Katherine Arden’s hugely popular fantasy series – set in an alternatively imagined medieval Russia – reaches its third and final instalment. Continuing the winning blend of folk and fairy tale influences with a refreshing depiction of female independence, Arden moves her story from political intrigue of Moscow in revolt to the magical dominion of Baba Yaga’s Midnight, drawing her story to a richly satisfying conclusion.
One girl can make a difference... Moscow is in flames, leaving its people searching for answers - and someone to blame.
Vasilisa, a girl with extraordinary gifts, must flee for her life, pursued by those who blame their misfortune on her magic. Then a vengeful demon returns, stronger than ever. Determined to engulf the world in chaos, he finds allies among men and spirits.
Mankind and magical creatures alike find their fates resting on Vasya's shoulders. But she may not be able to save them all.
