Overall Rating /
I know I’ve already done a full review for all three books in this trilogy, but I enjoyed these books so much I thought I’d do a 5 reasons to start this series style review, so here we go.
  • It is set in medieval Russia and is inspired by Russian folklore. The setting of this trilogy is one of my favourite things about it and the author does a great job at expanding it in each of the books.
  • If you enjoy fantasy books with a fairy tale feel to them, then you should definitely check these books out.
  • Each book is an atmospheric read with a compelling plot and great writing. The pacing is slow at times but I never felt it dragged.
  • Vasya is a great protagonist and all of the characters are well written. Their progression through the three books are so well done too.
  • Each book is as good, if not better, then the last and the concluding instalment ends the trilogy so well. I enjoyed every second of reading each of these books and once I started I didn’t want to put them down.

That’s it for today. If you couldn’t tell, I really enjoyed this trilogy and I would definitely recommend checking it out. Have you guys read any of these books? Let’s chat in the comments. I hope you are all having a wonderful day and I will see you next time.

  1. I finally read The Bear and the Nightingale earlier this year and really enjoyed it, and I imagined to grab The Girl in the Tower from the library before it closed. This is definitely a series I want to finish this year. 😁 Great post!
