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.

Katherine Arden s Winternight Trilogy isn t just good it s hug-to-your-chest, straight-to-the-favorites-shelf, reread-immediately good, and each book just gets better. The Winter of the Witch plunges us back to fourteenth-century Moscow, where old gods and new vie for the soul of Russia and fate rests on a witch girl s slender shoulders. Prepare to have your heart ripped out, loaned back to you full of snow and magic, and ripped out some more. Laini Taylor
Luxuriously detailed yet briskly suspenseful . . . a striking literary fantasy informed by Arden s deep knowledge. Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
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. Booklist
Exciting, moving, and beautifully written, this is a story readers will savor. Library Reads
