I have really enjoyed these stories. who knew that a Russian Fairy tale would make such a great story.. Ready for book 3.

As powerful and beautifully written as the first in the trilogy! Vasya's story kept me spellbound from start to finish. I can't wait to read the third installment later this year.

Great story! It can be read as a stand alone novel but best if one has first read "The Bear and and Nightingale", the authors' first book. The story takes place in a bitter cold winter in Russia. Vasilisa was forced to make choices that would take her on a perilous journey. Dressed as a boy, she put her family at risk while attempting to save them. Action packed and full of impossible situations, this book is a real page turner, a great adult fairy tale! Don't miss this one.

A great continuation of the series. I loved it! I highly recommend this series to people interested in fantasy or folk tales or even historical fiction. It's set in medieval Russia.
