"Following their adventures in The Bear and the Nightingale and The Girl in the Tower, Vasya and Morozko return in this stunning conclusion to the bestselling Winternight Trilogy, battling enemies mortal and magical to save both Russias, the seen and the unseen. Reviewers called Katherine Arden's novels The Bear and the Nightingale and The Girl in the Tower"lyrical,""emotionally stirring," and"utterly bewitching." The Winternight Trilogy introduced an unforgettable heroine, Vasilisa Petrovna, a girl determined to forge her own path in a world that would rather lock her away. Her gifts and her courage have drawn the attention of Morozko, the winter-king, but it is too soon to know if this connection will prove a blessing or a curse. Now Moscow has been struck by disaster. Its people are searching for answers--and for someone to blame. Vasya finds herself alone, beset on all sides. The Grand Prince is in a rage, choosing allies that will lead him on a path to war and ruin. A wicked demon returns, stronger than ever and determined to spread chaos. Caught at the center of the conflict is Vasya, who finds the fate of two worlds resting on her shoulders. Her destiny uncertain, Vasya will uncover surprising truths about herself and her history as she desperately tries to save Russia, Morozko, and the magical world she treasures. But she may not be able to save them all"--"Now, in the conclusion to this powerful trilogy, Moscow has been struck by disaster. Its people are searching for answers--and someone to blame.

Absolutely without a doubt one of the best books ever. I am at a loss of words to describe this trilogy which others have called “lyrical,” “emotionally stirring,” and “utterly bewitching.” It's all that and more and book 3 has some laugh out loud moments. Vasya and Morzoko are two characters you will never forget. The supporting cast is just as endearing and one of my favorites was a little mushroom spirit. As much as I wanted to know how it all would end, it was bittersweet to leave behind this magical story. Truly one of the best trilogies I have ever read. ( )

Almost made it to my DNF list. I'm so disappointed. Vasya was so incredibly annoying, the book dragged, and Konstantin, who could have been SUCH A COOL CHARACTER, was not given his due. One star for actually, finally, finishing the story. Dear lord. ( )

It might have taken a year and a half after reading the first of these books, but I’m really, really glad I returned to this trilogy. ( )

Probably shouldn't read a whole trilogy back to back. I was bored by the third book. ( )

What a barnstorming end to a trilogy this is. ‘The Winter of the Witch’ is the final part of the Winternight trilogy by Katherine Arden, a bewitching at times bewildering combination of Russian history, folklore, magic and fantasy. It’s the sort of book with depths that reward re-reading, weaving connections with the first two books into a finale that is both satisfying and heart-wrenching.
These are books about fitting in, and not fitting in, of being different, and finding your own way in a complicated sometimes mystifying world. Arden sets her tale in medieval Russia, adds layers of magic and Russian myth, woven together with the true story of the Battle of Kulikovo in 1380. She handles such a complex mixture with an assured, inspired hand. In my 2017 review of the first book, ‘The Bear and the Nightingale’, I described it as ‘not an easy read, but rewarding’ and I repeat that again for ‘The Winter of the Witch’. You have to pay attention, make connections, take fictional leaps of imagination, but you are rewarded.
As Vasya’s magical powers grow, so do the dangers to the traditional ways of life in old ‘Rus. No longer a girl but a hardened fighter, a young woman determined to do what is right, but still not immune to doubt, indecision and to love. As she performs more magic she knows she is danger of losing her grip on real life, of descending into madness, but must decide whether to save herself or to save those she loves. Vasya is an inspiring heroine, throwing herself into adventures against the will and advice of those around her, finding allies in unexpected places and facing enemies with a brave heart. My favourite characters included Solovey, Vasya’s magnificent bay stallion, and Ded Grib, the tiny mushroom chyert.
Moscow is burning and Vasya is to be burnt at the stake as a witch. If she can escape, she must leave behind everyone and everything she loves. Meanwhile a dark priest in Moscow is evangelising the people against the old ways and the chyerti, the folklore spirits,while the Tatars are threatening war against ‘Rus. Grand Prince Dimitri must unite the Russian princes to defend their lives.
I’m sad to finish these books but now I will revisit them again, this time reading them back-to-back in the hope of understanding more of the complex layers of folklore. The world-building reminds me of Tolkien and Pullman in its depth and breadth.
