The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden

The Bear and the NightingaleThe Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I have always been a fan of mythologies - most any of them, but am not at all familiar with Russian mythology. This story is beautifully rendered and makes me wish I had familiarized myself with Russian mythology years ago when I studied Greek, Roman, Egyptian, and Norse mythologies.

Detailing is very visual - making you feel as though you are living the story with Vasilisa. I love the use of nicknames throughout the story which shows how different versions of names reflect different familial relationships in the culture.

Anyone who likes reading about other cultures and/or mythology would enjoy this book.

**I received a complimentary copy via NetGalley.**
