Title: The Bear and the Nightingale Author: Katherine Arden Type: YA Fantasy Length: 368 pages Published by: Del Ray Pub date: Jan 10, 2017 Format: Paperback Source: Fun story: I thought I had this one on my Kindle, so I requested it’s sequel from Netgalley. When my request was accepted, I thought, “Great, better start reading, then.” ONLY I DIDN’T ACTUALLY HAVE IT ON MY KINDLE! So, I kind of panic-bought a copy from Barnes and Noble, even thought the sequel doesn’t come out till December.
Let me just take a moment to finish squealing over how beautiful that cover is!!!

*This review will contain unmarked spoilers for the rest of the series (otherwise, everything would be a spoiler)
**One quick disclaimer: I would definitely recommend reading the novellas before this book. A lot of the favors called in and many of the people visited are introduced in the novellas, and having read them will definitely make this book more enjoyable.**
The short version:
I LOVED this book. There are very few things I would change, and I think it makes a great addition to the Throne of Glass family.Read More »
