This is the second in the Winternight Trilogy by Katherine Arden. It was fun to start off the year with a whimsical story that takes place in Russia, a place I have never been to and know hardly anything about. I love Vasya, our heroine in this story. She is so strong in a time where equality between men and women is nonexistent. This story was so fun for me because it felt like a ride. There were so many times I thought I knew where it was going – only to take a turn down a different path and be completely thrown off.

Favorite Quote: “Every time you take one path, you must live with the memory of the other: of a life left unchosen. Decide as seems best, one course or the other; each way will have its bitter with its sweet.”
