    You know that feeling when you find a book that speaks to some deep part of your soul and you just want to shout: ‘THIS is why I read!’?This folkloric trilogy has become that for me, reminding me of all the reasons why I love literature. It’s no secret that I loved the first two books in this deep-winter tale with the burning fire of a thousand suns. So you can imagine how much I needed this book in my hands, and also how stressful a thing ...

    I’m just going to go ahead and give this a five star. I highly doubt I’ll change the rating once I read it. That being said, waiting another 8 months for this is torturous, but if 2018 goes by as quickly as 2017 has, it’ll come sooner than expected. 🎊🎉🎊

    I am left completely and utterly speechless. Never have I encountered an author that has such a beautiful way with words as Katherine Arden. It feels bittersweet to finish this trilogy, for I'd rather not ever have it end, but what a fitting ending have you given us, Katherine. Thank you.

    YES! I got my early Christmas gift this year. Almost a week ago, this book was up for request. I got excited because this book has been a long awaited novel since I read The Girl in the Tower in December 2017. 5 days later, I came home from work to an email telling me the publisher has approved my request. You betcha that I was just like that 8 year old girl who just opened the best present on a Christmas morning! Made myself a cup of salted cara...

    I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. I dare anyone who reads this not to give it five stars, honestly. It is so stunning and beautiful and evocative. This series is genuinely the best. It’s so atmospheric and well written. I love everything about how these books played out. Vasya is so brave and headstrong and determined - I do not envy Morozko or Medved!! 😂 she is a force to be recognised - as we see on ...

    4.5 stars I received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review The Winter of the Witch was the final book in the Winternight Trilogy and it was such a great conclusion! I don't want to spoil anything, but I can tell you I loved it and I already miss all the characters! There is only one thing that left me not completely satisfied and it was the ending. It's like there wasn't a full closure and some things were left unsaid. Maybe ...

    THANK YOU to PRH and my boss for fighting hard for an ARC for me.Listen. As readers, I'm sure you all struggle alongside me with finding new favorite reads. After years and years of reading, it's hard to find new ones that match up--and especially when it comes to wrapping up a trilogy. I was so stressed going into this book, because I friggin' LOVED the first two books. Fear not, for I'm happy to say-- THIS SERIES IS MY NEW FAVORITE SERIES. Hand...

    There are, truly, no words. It's been hours since I finished, and I'm still breathless with wonder and joy and sadness and gratitude, so much gratitude, that this trilogy exists, and that I was lucky enough to have found it.I was also lucky enough to receive an advanced copy of the final book from Katherine Arden, and honestly, I was terrified. But once it was in my hands, there was no stopping myself from reading. And, god, it was everything, ev...

    An absolutely amazing ending to an absolutely superb trilogy that I have inhaled over the last few weeks, living every moment with Vasya and the rest, every moment an unequivocal joy to read.The Bear and the Nightingale, The Girl In The Tower and now The Winter of the Witch, all stunning in their complexity, a gorgeous blend of history, myth and magic in the Russia of old. Vasya is a girl of and beyond her time, a true heroine and a reluctant arb...

    The third installment of the Winternight Trilogy is just as powerful as the first. Vasya has grown from the timid little girl who takes care of the old mythical beings, talks to horses and fall in love with the magic of the forest to a formidable warrior woman and witch.She has taken on the task of unifying Russia and trying to have a world where the old faith and new religion can coexist. First, she must help save Moscow, her family and make her...

    If my favorite ice demon's conflict isn't resolved, I'm dropping this review down to one star.Just kidding. I'll just cry. A lot.
