It's never easy saying goodbye to such engaging characters, but I was left with a satisfying conclusion and the fulfillment of many character arcs so I'm happy.
Vasya is on her own, which is just fine with her. But she's rushing into an unknown danger she isn't ready to face. The Girl in the Tower is another fantastic read from a true up and coming author. It’s rare a series this good comes along, so don’t miss it.
The Bear and the Nightingale is historical fantasy fiction at its best. A vibrant world, rich characters, more than a hint of the supernatural, and an endearing main character who doesn’t have all the answers but isn’t afraid to find them. Do yourself a favor and get yourself a copy of this book now.
