I am so happy to be back in this world! The first book in the trilogy is so well rounded. Bringing in Russian Folklore, and blending everything together so well.
We knew the story had moved away from the time on the farm. However, this book picks up exactly where book one left off. It doesn't stop either. Full of action, heartbreak, loss, and love. This book is a perfect companion to a cold winter night. We are transported once again to the harsh Winter landscape. This time we have a look into the delicate political balance that is being played out. The world building is fantastic in these books! While reading, you can hear the wood stove cracking. Smell the snow, and hear the wind tear through the trees. Beautiful, Russian inspired story, and perfect sequel!
