One girl can make a difference…
Moscow is in flames, leaving its people searching for answers – and someone to blame. Vasilisa, a girl with extraordinary gifts, must flee for her life, pursued by those who blame their misfortune on her magic.
Then a vengeful demon returns, stronger than ever. Determined to engulf the world in chaos, he finds allies among men and spirits. Mankind and magical creatures alike find their fates resting on Vasya’s shoulders.
But she may not be able to save them all.
Guest Post: 10 Things About Me.
1). I draft my books longhand, with a disposable fountain pen.
2). I mostly work in the same easy chair, it’s hell on my neck.
3). I’ve been a vegan for ten years, and I make fantastic pie crusts with coconut oil and vodka.
4). For the last three years, I’ve lived in a house with the same five roommates. They are like my family. But this fall I’m moving out. I bought a house. I am happy and also sad.
5). I wrote The Bear and the Nightingale while I was living in a tent on Maui, Hawaii. I wrote The Girl in the Tower while I was backpacking around Europe. I wrote most of The Winter of the Witch in front of our woodstove at home in Vermont.
6). But also I finished The Winter of the Witch in an Airbnb basement in London, fuelled by orange juice, tears, desperation, late nights, and vegan cupcakes.
7). I don’t drink, although a roommate just bought 24lbs of honey with the intention of making mead. Perhaps she’ll change my mind.
8). Every spring we tap trees and boil off the sap to make maple syrup.
9). I studied foreign languages at university, and meant to be an interpreter. Novels caught me unaware and took over.
10). I have six more books on the horizon, get ready.
About Katherine Arden.
Born in Austin, Texas, Katherine Arden spent her junior year of high school in Rennes, France.
Following her acceptance to Middlebury College in Vermont, she deferred enrolment for a year in order to live and study in Moscow. At Middlebury, she specialized in French and Russian literature.
After receiving her BA, she moved to Maui, Hawaii, working every kind of odd job imaginable, from grant writing and making crêpes to serving as a personal tour guide. After a year on the island, she moved to Briançon, France, and spent nine months teaching. She then returned to Maui, stayed for nearly a year, then left again to wander. Currently she lives in Vermont, but really, you never know.
