Book Review – The Bear and the Nightingale

The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden

Genre: Historical Fiction/Fantasy

This story takes place in medieval Russia where the main character, Vasilisa, has grown up listening to fairy tales being told to her by her nurse. Vasilisa has powers but attempts to conceal them from her family (especially her stepmother). Danger is coming and her family is threatened so Vasilisa defies those that she loves to call upon those powers in hopes of saving those that she cares most for.

This is the first book in the Winternight Trilogy by Katherine Arden and I loved it! The book left me wanting more at the end and I can’t wait to read the next book in the series. It’s a perfect book to read this time of year and I gave it a 4/5 stars.

I have always been a lover of reading. I can usually be found with either a book or my e-reader on me wherever I go. I'm married to my high school sweetheart and momma to 2 beautiful girls.
