A stunning debut.
Vasya is the youngest daughter of the daughter of a mysterious woman who came from the forest. Undoubtedly, she is different from the rest and her eyes see what no mortal can perceive. Spending her time with domovoi and rusalkas, Vasya’s youth is as different as can be, even excepting the Frost king and his mysterious talisman.
With a setting as lush as a Russian fairy-tale, Katherine Arden spins a tale of magic, fear and death and of family.
