Winter is here. And darkness has fallen.
The people of Moscow are suffering. The city’s flames have just been extinguished. The crowd, left to pick up its pieces, needs someone to blame. And who’s a better victim than the witch that can talk to powerful spirits?
Vasilisa Petrovna must flee for her life. And during her run, she will end up in the Land of Midnight. But if the world of Humans is a dangerous place, the land of magic is ten times riskier. Danger lurks everywhere, and with the worse demon of them all, the Bear, finally free from his prison, no one is safe.
Vasilisa will have to go through a long and painful adventure in order to defeat the Bear and save Moscow from the new dangers that have started lurking around its inhabitants. But will she be able to save herself from the madness of her own powers?
From the writer that brought us The Bear and the Nightingale, here comes the third and final book of a fantastic trilogy, the Winternight Trilogy. The Winter of the Witch is the spectacular epilogue to an exciting, magical adventure. With folklore and myths woven into it, this is a story that hooks the reader on page one.
Not always happy and certainly not carefree, the plot is filled with pain, difficult character decisions and even death – but this only makes it more real, raw and honest. However, hope is never lost: and the reader will never lose their hope of seeing Vasilisa become the powerful woman that she can, discover her past and heritage and create a better future for everyone.
The Winter of the Witch is a must-read for every reader that is a fan of the fantasy genre. Not to be missed.
