"A magical debut novel for readers of Naomi Novik's Uprooted, Erin Morgenstern'sThe Night Circus, and Neil Gaiman's myth-rich fantasies, The Bear and the Nightingale spins an irresistible spell as it announces the arrival of a singular talent with a gorgeous voice. At the edge of the Russian wilderness, winter lasts most of the year and the snowdrifts grow taller than houses. But Vasilisa doesn't mind--she spends the winter nights huddled around the embers of a fire with her beloved siblings, listening to her nurse's fairy tales. Above all, she loves the chilling story of Frost, the blue-eyed winter demon, who appears in the frigid night to claim unwary souls. Wise Russians fear him, her nurse says, and honor the spirits of house and yard and forest that protect their homes from evil. After Vasilisa's mother dies, her father goes to Moscow and brings home a new wife. Fiercely devout, city-bred, Vasilisa's new stepmother forbids her family from honoring the household spirits. The family acquiesces, but Vasilisa is frightened, sensing that more hinges upon their rituals than anyone knows. And indeed, crops begin to fail, evil creatures of the forest creep nearer, and misfortune stalks the village. All the while, Vasilisa's stepmother grows ever harsher in her determination to groom her rebellious stepdaughter for marriage or confinement in a convent. As danger circles nearer, Vasilisa must defy even the people she loves and call on dangerous gifts she has long concealed--this, in order to protect her family from a threat that seems to have stepped from her nurse's most frightening tales. Advance praise for The Bear and the Nightingale "An extraordinary retelling of a very old tale. A Russian setting adds unfamiliar spice to the story of a young woman who does not rebel against the limits of her role in her culture so much as transcend them. The Bear and the Nightingale is a wonderfully layered novel of family and the harsh wonders of deep winter magic."--Robin Hobb, bestselling author of the Fitz and the Fool trilogy "A beautiful deep-winter story, full of magic and monsters and the sharp edges of growing up."--Naomi Novik, bestselling author of Uprooted"-- "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, Pytor hides the gift away and Vasya grows up a wild, willful 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"--… (més)

    The Snow Child de Eowyn Ivey (Iudita)
    Iudita: Beautifully written and based on folklore.
  2. 40
    Deathless de Catherynne M. Valente (flying_monkeys)
    flying_monkeys: Both read like novel-length fairy tales based on Russian folklore. Both embrace their cold, wintry setting to superb effect.

The atmosphere of this historical fantasy is well written. The author beautifully recreates the ancient folklore of Russia clashing with the "new" Christian ideals being forced upon the people of Vasya's village. She is an intriguing character that I long to read more about later in the series. I'm confused about the true relationship between Vasya and Frost, but I'm hoping more will be revealed later in the trilogy. This book is worth reading on the atmosphere alone. ( )

I absolutely loved this book. Vasya is my hero. Anyone who enjoys Neil Gaiman will very likely adore this book as their storytelling is similar in its beauty. Oh man, this book. ( )

This is good, this is solid fantasy. I like the Russian folklore bent to it and I enjoyed the writing. It does feel a little like a YA novel to me, which isn't a knock against it but is something that kept going through my mind as I read. I think this is a feeling other people share judging by the tags on the book here. We keep the third book in the adult section at my library so it is adult fantasy but I definitely think fans of YA fantasy would enjoy it. ( )

On the one hand, this book has taken me nearly a year to get through, because the characters and events kept being overwhelming. On the other, the fact that everything was so much meant that every time I picked the book up I could just keep going, because I hadn't forgotten what was going on.

Beautiful Russian fairy tale/myth inspired fantastical story, well worth reading. ( )

I have absolutely no idea what I just read. ( )

By the shore of the sea stands a green oak tree;
Upon the tree is a golden chain:
And day and night a learned cat
Walks around and around on the chain;
When he goes to the right he sings a song,
When he goes to the left he tells a tale.
-A.S. Pushkin
