Praise for The Bear and the Nightingale

"A beautiful deep-winter story, full of magic and monsters and the sharp edges of growing up." - Naomi Novik

"An extraordinary retelling of a very old tale . . . A Russian setting adds unfamiliar spice to the story of a young woman who does not rebel against the limits of her role in her culture so much as transcend them." - Robin Hobb
