Editorial Reviews


Advance praise for The Girl in the Tower
“Arden’s lush, lyrical writing cultivates an intoxicating, visceral atmosphere, and her marvelous sense of pacing carries the novel along at a propulsive clip. A masterfully told story of folklore, history, and magic with a spellbinding heroine at the heart of it all.”Booklist (starred review)
“[A] sensual, beautifully written, and emotionally stirring fantasy . . . Fairy tales don’t get better than this.”Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Praise for Katherine Arden’s The Bear and the Nightingale 
“Arden’s debut novel has the cadence of a beautiful fairy tale but is darker and more lyrical.”—The Washington Post
“A beautiful deep-winter story, full of magic and monsters and the sharp edges of growing up.”—Naomi Novik, bestselling author of Uprooted
“Stunning . . . will enchant readers from the first page . . . with an irresistible heroine who wants only to be free of the bonds placed on her gender and claim her own fate.”Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Vasya [is] a clever, stalwart girl determined to forge her own path in a time when women had few choices.”—The Christian Science Monitor
“Utterly bewitching . . . an immersive, earthy story of folk magic, faith, and hubris, peopled with vivid, dynamic characters.”Booklist (starred review) Review

An Amazon Best Book of December 2017: We chose Arden’s The Bear and the Nightingale as a Best Book of the Month earlier in 2017, and Arden now continues her glorious medieval Russian fantasy series right where the first book left off. Vasya, a potential witch, has been exiled from her village on the edge of the wild woods, the death of her father weighing on her soul. Her desire to escape the destiny of her gender—to be a wife or to live in a cloister—and to experience the wide world puts her in boy's trousers and on the back of a magical horse, but Vasya's tendency to act first and think later tangles her up in bandit clans, a budding war between wizards, and the vast ambitions of the young ruler of Moscow. Even as she rejects the constricting rules of society and her own family, Vasya’s troubles are magnified as her actions spawn repercussions that will upend not only the human balance of power but the supernatural equilibrium, too. Arden’s writing is as feverishly beautiful and poetic here as it was in her first novel, and it's a thrill watching a perfect bud of a fantasy tale blossom into a powerful epic. --Adrian Liang, Amazon Book Review --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

After a year on the island, she moved to Brian&ccedil;on, France, and spent nine months teaching. She then returned to Maui, stayed for nearly a year, then left again to wander. Currently she lives in Vermont, but really, you never know.
