What is it about?
Vasya has left her home because superstitious people do not appreciate “witches” saving their lives. All she knows is she wants to ride Solovey, her horse, as far as he will take her.
Was it good?
Oh boy, yes it was. It was beautiful, magical, mysterious, clever, haunting, exciting, and more. And the romance, although subtle, was swoon worthy.
Katherine Arden’s writing transports you to the winter land that is Russia in the mid 14th century. Her story pacing keeps you on the edge of your seat without wearing you out. I think this is just a really well told and beautiful story. I’m very much looking forward to book 3.
