Bildresultat för the winter of the witchNEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - 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.
"A tale both intimate and epic, featuring a heroine whose harrowing and wondrous journey culminates in an emotionally resonant finale."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Vasilisa Petrovna is an unforgettable heroine determined to forge her own path. 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, 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 as she desperately tries to save Russia, Morozko, and the magical world she treasures. But she may not be able to save them all.
Bokbeskrivning hämtad från Adlibris.
Vilken bra avslutning på en bra trilogi, har gillat att läsa om Vasyas äventyr i ett kallt och kargt Rus (Ryssland på 1300-talet), och lärde mig från författarens efterord att hon har hämtat inspiration från en historisk händelse och vävt in ryska folksagor och folktro i sin berättelse.
Kommer att sakna alla karaktärerna nu när denna trilogi är slut, de magiska hästarna och den lille champijon varelsen inte minst.
