    We return to the entrancing and magical world of Vasya in medieval Russia. A grief stricken Vasya mourns the loss of Dunya and her father, wanders the icy forests, unable to return to her family home of Lesnaya Zemlya, branded a witch by the locals, threatened with marriage and the con...

    5 stars for this beautiful, medieval Russian fantasy! The story of Vasya continues! Orphaned, and exiled from her village in the woods following her fathers death, she longs to see the world, and to not be put in the traditional role of wife, that would be for young girls of her age. ...

    Beautifully realised follow up to the magical The Bear and the Nightingale, this book builds and expands on both the world and characters we all loved so much in the first instalment. After a quick flash of Vasya fleeing into the woods after the events at the end of the last book, w...

    Katherine Arden's fusion of an icy folkloric fantasy and historical fiction set in medieval Russia captivated me (and many other readers) in The Bear and the Nightingale. The Girl in the Tower is a worthy sequel to Arden's spellbinding debut and Vasya, Morozko and the wonders of Arden'...

    So this is how one follows up a great book with a great sequel... while reading my mickey-taking brain cells were fully awake, yet I can find no reason to criticize this book, except for its name, which has the word 'Girl' in its title. The story progresses seamlessly. Vasya does th...

    This was an excellent follow up to the first book! I liked it just the same, or maybe better! There was more of Vasya in this one, which I was excited to see. Nothing stands in her way when she wants to do something, and sometimes this can cause consequences. It all makes her appear mo...

    Here comes the party-pooper. Yeah, that?s me. While reading Bear and the Nightingale I was charmed with the story and Vasya and couldn?t wait to dive into book two. After finishing the second book, I?m still not sure what to make of this story. It started in an i...

    Re-read 2018 thoughts: It?s official. Morozko is my book husband. I really missed Alyosha, but Sasha is a more than fair replacement. Everyone deserves an older brother like Sasha. Original review: Ohh guys, this beautiful book. It was everything I hoped for and more af...

    Beneath the trees swaying in the darkness, peering from behind cringing shadows, inhuman eyes are watching and waiting. Something evil is stirring in medieval Russia, burning villages, snatching girl children and spiriting them away leaving no trace. Beware a bird with a woman's face, ...

    The second book in the trilogy and every bit as good as the first! Again Arden serves up big helpings of Russian folklore and fairy tales and adds a dash of her own magic to the mix. Vasya is still the same great character, trying to avoid her fate of marriage or a convent in a time...

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Well this was truly magical to read. I loved the previous novel in this series, The Bear and the Nightingale, and had high hopes for the follow up. I was not disappointed. Everything I loved from the first novel - the ...
