A young woman's family is threatened by forces both real and fantastical in this debut novel inspired by Russian fairy tales.
In a village at the edge of the wilderness of northern Russia, where the winds blow cold and the snow falls many months of the year, a stranger with piercing blue eyes presents a new father with a gift - a precious jewel on a delicate chain,intended for his young daughter. Uncertain of its meaning, the father hides the gift away and his daughter, Vasya, grows up a wild, wilful girl, to the chagrin of her family. But when mysterious forces threaten the happiness of their village, Vasya discovers that, armed only with the necklace, she may be the only one who can keep the darkness at bay.
Atmospheric and enchanting, with an engrossing adventure at its core, The Bear and the Nightingale is perfect for readers of Naomi Novik's Uprooted, Erin Morgenstern's The Night Circus, and Neil Gaiman.

    The book was a little slow for my taste. But very well written. Because most of the characters were unlikable and the setting so inhospitable, it was a bit difficult to feel that usual faerie tale charm. The narrator of the book was flawless.

  • Amanda N

    Very tame for a dark faerie tale, but excellently written. Enjoyable to listen to.

  • Kathryn B

    This is a slow-paced, gorgeously-written, long-wintered fairy tale. It brings out the notes of true winter and creates characters that move and breathe!
