"A magical debut novel for readers of Naomi Novik's Uprooted, Erin Morgenstern'sThe Night Circus, and Neil Gaiman's myth-rich fantasies, The Bear and the Nightingale spins an irresistible spell as it announces the arrival of a singular talent with a gorgeous voice. At the edge of the Russian wilderness, winter lasts most of the year and the snowdrifts grow taller than houses. But Vasilisa doesn't mind--she spends the winter nights huddled around the embers of a fire with her beloved siblings, listening to her nurse's fairy tales. Above all, she loves the chilling story of Frost, the blue-eyed winter demon, who appears in the frigid night to claim unwary souls. Wise Russians fear him, her nurse says, and honor the spirits of house and yard and forest that protect their homes from evil. After Vasilisa's mother dies, her father goes to Moscow and brings home a new wife. Fiercely devout, city-bred, Vasilisa's new stepmother forbids her family from honoring the household spirits. The family acquiesces, but Vasilisa is frightened, sensing that more hinges upon their rituals than anyone knows. And indeed, crops begin to fail, evil creatures of the forest creep nearer, and misfortune stalks the village. All the while, Vasilisa's stepmother grows ever harsher in her determination to groom her rebellious stepdaughter for marriage or confinement in a convent. As danger circles nearer, Vasilisa must defy even the people she loves and call on dangerous gifts she has long concealed--this, in order to protect her family from a threat that seems to have stepped from her nurse's most frightening tales. Advance praise for The Bear and the Nightingale "An extraordinary retelling of a very old tale. A Russian setting adds unfamiliar spice to the story of a young woman who does not rebel against the limits of her role in her culture so much as transcend them. The Bear and the Nightingale is a wonderfully layered novel of family and the harsh wonders of deep winter magic."--Robin Hobb, bestselling author of the Fitz and the Fool trilogy "A beautiful deep-winter story, full of magic and monsters and the sharp edges of growing up."--Naomi Novik, bestselling author of Uprooted"-- "In a village at the edge of the wilderness of northern Russia, where the winds blow cold and the snow falls many months of the year, a stranger with piercing blue eyes presents a new father with a gift - a precious jewel on a delicate chain, intended for his young daughter. Uncertain of its meaning, Pytor hides the gift away and Vasya grows up a wild, willful girl, to the chagrin of her family. But when mysterious forces threaten the happiness of their village, Vasya discovers that, armed only with the necklace, she may be the only one who can keep the darkness at bay"--… (mere)

This wasn't as good as I expected. I know it's genre appropriate but I felt like the more distant third person made it hard to connect to the characters and really be in the moment with them. I also felt that the ending was somewhat anticlimactic and I'm still not sure about some of the characters motivations. ( )

DNF and 15%. This book is obviously not for me. I think that there is a good story in there. But unfortunately, the way it is presented is too hard for me to read. So I'm afraid I'm calling it quits on this one.

I have mixed feeling about this story. I believe the author truly set out to write a story that showed how Vasya and her siblings was entertained by the stories that she and her siblings listened to every night...and then the new step-mother was on the scene and the spirits of the household were no longer honored. However...the presentation of the remainder of the story bordered on things that many readers may find offense and an attack on well-held beliefs. I gave the book 4.5 stars because I have a tendency to take fiction for what it is...fiction. I thought the story was well written and the author seems to have done a great deal of research. The thing that I found the most offsetting is that Christianity is presented here in the form of charismatic priest Father Konstantin... as primarily a religion of fear. Perhaps that is a true view to the spirits of the house and the people of the region. Of the only two characters who can see the spirits...Vasya finds most of them friendly and treats them with kindness and respect... but to Anna, who is obsessed with the
“new religion”...Christianity... they are all demons. I believe this is a book that everyone is going to have an opinion about...good or bad, but never in the middle. You can enjoy it if you remember that it is fiction. ( )

A captivating, original fairytale by first-time author Katherine Arden. Vivid poetic writing, even about the harsh life in northern Russia. It was also unpredictable, leaving the reader uncertain as to what would happen next. Some classic elements: Vasya, the daughter of a widowed boyar, has powers inherited from her grandmother (she can see spirits and treats them kindly), a devout stepmother, who hates Vasya and her wild and strange ways, and a father, who is strong for his people, but weak at home. On the other hand, I found the switching between familiar and formal Russian names unnecessary and confusing; I disliked that we did not really understand the protagonist's thinking nor maturation from child to adult, perhaps because there was too much detail about the nutty stepmother, Anna, and finally, the religious zealotry of Konstantin (and its root cause) was too much, at least for me anyway. I have to say in conclusion that I thought the book's pacing was good, and I liked it better at the end than at any point earlier. ( )

Promoted as an adult fairy-tale. Interesting setting. Organized religion versus common folklore one of the themes. ( )

By the shore of the sea stands a green oak tree;
Upon the tree is a golden chain:
And day and night a learned cat
Walks around and around on the chain;
When he goes to the right he sings a song,
When he goes to the left he tells a tale.
-A.S. Pushkin
