Winter of the Witch by Katherine Arden

Amazon / Goodreads

Fantasy Trilogy book 3


I received an ARC from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

  1. The Bear and the Nightingale 5/5 (review here)
  2. The Girl in the Tower 5/5 (review here)
  3. The Winter of the Witch 5/5

What is it about?

Book 3 takes place immediately after the events in book 2. The people of Moscow, under Father Konstantin’s influence, are not pleased with Vasya’s interference and seek to punish her for being a witch. But that’s just the beginning! War is coming to Moscow…

Was it good?

I went into this book without reading the blurb and was surprised by the misadventures Vasya found herself part of. I had imagined this book would be quite different, but I was NOT disappointed by the story that was told. You should know, however, that most of this book seems to take place in the Summer so the title is a bit of a misnomer.

The book was beautiful and I felt immediately pulled back into Vasya’s world. Her actions and reasons were really believable, if misguided, and she really learned more about herself, her powers, her allies and her enemies.

I really enjoyed this book and I loved this series as a whole and highly recommend it to anyone with interests in historical fantasy, folk tales, fairytales, witches, and magic.

Are you excited about this book? It was released a few days ago and you can go read it right now!
