If you have ever asked me for a fantasy recommendation, chances are I’ve mentioned this book. I have read it over and over; I find it gripping and comforting all at once. It is beautifully lyrical, a dark fairytale with teeth set in the snowy landscape of old Rus where pagan beliefs are being slowly weeded out by Christianity. Vasya is a vibrant heroine who does not fit in the world the Christians want. If I can give you one last book before I go, it has to be this one that I love so much.
