The Girl in the Tower

Katherine Arden

In this sequel to The Bear and the Nightingale, Vasilisa's mystical sight attracts the attention of the winter demon, Frost. The two save Vasilisa's people, but the partnership gets her labeled as a witch. She's cast out on her own, and starts dressing like a boy in order to have a life filled with adventure as opposed to the fate that normally befalls women: marriage or the convent.
