The Winter of the Witch by Katherine Arden, A Review

Wow… the ending of this book just about leaves me speechless, however, if you know me then you know that’s not possible. I will just say, this is a better ending to The Winternight Trilogy than I could have dreamed of in my wildest imaginings. It also leaves me completely at peace and satisfied that the series is over. That is honestly not something I can say about every series.

Vasya is such a dynamic character, and the reader really gets to see how far she has developed and grown by the end of this book. The last book ended with Vasilisa destroying a wicked magician, setting fire to Moscow, and saving her niece and the city all in one night. So, now what? You may be wondering. So much has happened so far, what can possibly happen now?

Well, Part One of this book just about killed me. You will have to read it and find out for yourself why. Vasya, being the strong woman she is, of course overcomes and carries on to continue fighting. This book is full of war. War between brothers, between The Winter King and The God of Chaos, Morozko and Medved. War between Russia and the Tatars. War for the chyerti, for their very existence. Yes, a lot is going on, but it is all handled beautifully and it wraps up perfectly in the end.

Travel the roads of midnight and face the madness of magic in this gorgeous end to The Winternight Trilogy!

Thanks for reading my review and happy reading!!
