Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "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"-- Provided by publisher.

    Vasya's powerful connection to magic is no longer a secret in Moscow, and with zealous father Konstantin behind a simmering, city-wide paranoia about witches and demons, she is no longer safe among the world of men. While she escapes to the world of Midnight and explores her deep connection to folk spirits, Moscow faces danger in the form of Mongol hordes, and Vasya cleverly manages to call on both parts of herself to rescue the Russian people from peril. Arden nicely ties up the story in this trilogy ender (which started with The Bear and the Nightingale, 2017), focusing primarily on ?Vasya's warring impulses: she is captivatingly caught between the intoxicating power of magic and the groundedness of love and family. Though the pace lags a bit toward the beginning, once Vasya finds her footing, Arden's signature cinematic pacing and clearly choreographed action come to the fore. Visceral descriptions of battle, an atmospheric sense of place, and some truly heartbreaking moments of loss make this a gut-wrenching read, but there's ample hope and satisfaction to be found as Vasya chooses her own unique path to triumph.
