[ Books ] 'The Bear and the Nightingale' by Elizabeth Arden

The Bear and The NightingaleThe Bear and The Nightingale by Katherine Arden

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Loved this story. Don't know much (or anything at all, really) about the folk lore and myths of Russia but this sparked a curiosity. There was an interesting thread about this in Bibliogoth when we were discussing the book (yesterday, as I write this). The consensus was that the characters were a little bit stereotypical, the plot did derive to an extent from old Russian folklore stories. None of this mattered to me, I really liked this book.
