I can’t believe this beautiful series is over. I am sad to finish it. Katherine Arden painted a beautiful world that I was so glad I got to experience.
The Winter of the Witch continues the story right after the events of The Girl in the Tower. Moscow has been struck with disaster and they are hunting someone to blame. Unfortunately, Vasya fills that position. While escaping she goes to the land of Midnight, where she learns that the fates of the seen and unseen world are resting on her shoulders. Through this journey Vasya will come into her powers and learn her true destiny.
This was such an emotional roller-coaster. The events in this are heart stopping. We are introduced to new characters. I fell in love with Deb Grib. But as to be expected, there is also heartache.
I loved watching Vasya’s growth through the series. She goes from a unique young girl to a powerhouse of a woman. I will say the story line became more political than I expected. There is one part of the book where she finds a cottage. I was hoping she would build her life there but she left to help Russia. I promise that wasn’t a spoiler, lol. This series will forever be a favorite of mine.
