Editorial Reviews

Review

“[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 betterThe 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

5.0 out of 5 stars Phenomenal end to a phenomenal trilogy.
By meigan on January 24, 2019
”If you spend too much time alone in the dark, you will forget that you are more than the witch of the wood, you will forget to come back into the light.”

Vasilisa Petrovna’s journey began in The Bear in the Nightingale, where she was introduced to the other world that lives just beyond the eyes of the mortals and the devils and chyerti that inhabit that world. Her journey continued in The Girl in the Tower, where she was fighting not only for her survival, but also for the lives of the people in Rus’. Her journey ends on a fitting note, where she’s able to bring men and devils together to save the country she loves and the people within, but also the shadows that lurk in the oven hearths and in the spaces between trees. Her entire journey has been fraught with danger, and it was truly a pleasure to watch her grow and change, find some peace and fit into the space in the world that’s been carved out just for her.

First I needed men to help me defeat a devil, she thought. Now I will need devils to help me defeat men.

While the previous two books have been rife with bloodshed and threats of war, The Winter of the Witch finally brings the imminent battle to the forefront. The Tatars have made their way to Russia’s front door, and it all concludes with the battle at Kulikovo. As with any war, there’s always going to be loss, and there isn’t one character who walks away from this battle without feeling the heavy weight of it. That’s not the only battle that’s being fought, as the war of faiths is still very much a point of contention between Christians and Pagans, with Vasya at the center of it all fighting for the Domovoi and the chyerti, the folklore and fables that make up the second world she’s a part of.

”This is the price of my aid: Swear to me you will not condemn witches to burn. Swear to me you will not condemn those who leave offerings in their oven-mouths. Let our people have both their faiths.”

And the romance. Oh, the romance! I’ve been waiting not so patiently for this from the very beginning and not only was it everything I wished for, it was so much more. From the beginning, the relationship between Morozko and Vasya has been incredibly complicated and multi-faceted, but there’s always been a healthy dose of respect for one another. And a spark lying just beneath the surface, fighting and failing to break it.

”Why are you afraid?”, she asked him.
His hand dropped. She did not think he would answer. When he did, it was so low she barely caught the words. “Love is for those who know the griefs of time, for it goes hand in hand with loss. An eternity, so burdened, would be a torment. And yet—“ He broke off, drew breath. “Yet what else to call it, this terror and this joy?”

I was so apprehensive to start this book — not for any reason except I didn’t want this series to come to an end. But all things must. I don’t often reread books or series, but this trilogy is going to make it to that coveted list. And while I’m sad to see it end, Katherine Arden’s brilliance knows no bounds and I’m sure whatever she brings next will be just as phenomenal as this trilogy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly amazing, inspiring and wonderful
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on January 22, 2019
For anyone who has not read the first two books in the trilogy will understand the relevance of the photo. I was so eager to read The Winter of the Witch then thought oh help I know it is going to be amazing and then will not be able to put it down and never want it to end. My friend recommended I read the Bear and the Nightingale and to say I was blown away by the wonderful thread of the story and the way Katherine Arden is a word weaver of brilliance and such imagination. Having Russian grandparents I began to wonder in this book how I ended up or my ancestors being here such was the tyranny and complexity of this time but we know even worse happens in this land of the Rus. The book gripped me from the start and wham then the tears came and thought my heart would break as have always loved horses from the earliest age I can remember and am now well near 70 years old but still a child at heart. No spoilers though please just read the amazing relationship Vasya has with Solovey and off to get another tissue! This is not a child's book it has so many adult themes but it could be read by anyone whatever age or gender. The intensity of the story never wained and there was not one page I wanted to skip but kept going back and reading the page again as sometimes there was so much to take in, love, battles, loss and the magic of the old ways clashing with power and money. I would give this book and all the trilogy more than 5 stars if I could and my heart was lifted in the fact that at the end of the story we learn that so much of it was based on real characters in history and that there was more to come. As another reviewer said, we have followed Vasya since her birth to see her grow and become such a powerful and amazing character with maturity and magic and is probably one of my favourite fictional heroines. A mountain of praise for this author, who am now following avidly and a true fan......."Большое спасибо" Thank you and with gratitude Katherine Arden.
