Rezensionen
[Katherine] Arden s gorgeous prose entwines political intrigue and feminist themes with magic and folklore to tell a tale both intimate and epic, featuring a heroine whose harrowing and wondrous journey culminates in an emotionally resonant finale. Publishers Weekly (starred review)
 
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
