Katherine Arden’s bestselling debut novel spins an irresistible spell as it announces the arrival of a singular talent with a gorgeous voice. “A beautiful deep-winter story, full of magic and monsters and the sharp edges of growing up.”—Naomi Novik, bestselling author of Uprooted Winter lasts most of the year at the edge of the Russian wilderness, and in the long nights, Vasilisa and her siblings love to gather by the fire to listen to their nurse’s fairy tales. Above all, Vasya loves the story of Frost, the blue-eyed winter demon. Wise Russians fear him, for he claims unwary souls, and they honor the spirits that protect their homes from evil. Then Vasya’s widowed father brings home a new wife from Moscow. Fiercely devout, Vasya’s stepmother forbids her family from honoring their household spirits, but Vasya fears what this may bring. And indeed, misfortune begins to stalk the village. But Vasya’s stepmother only grows harsher, determined to remake the village to her liking and to groom her rebellious stepdaughter for marriage or a convent. As the village’s defenses weaken and evil from the forest creeps nearer, Vasilisa must call upon dangerous gifts she has long concealed—to protect her family from a threat sprung to life from her nurse’s most frightening tales. Praise for The Bear and the Nightingale “Arden’s debut novel has the cadence of a beautiful fairy tale but is darker and more lyrical.”—The Washington Post “Vasya [is] a clever, stalwart girl determined to forge her own path in a time when women had few choices.”—The Christian Science Monitor “Stunning . . . will enchant readers from the first page. . . . with an irresistible heroine who wants only to be free of the bonds placed on her gender and claim her own fate.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review) “Utterly bewitching . . . a lush narrative . . . an immersive, earthy story of folk magic, faith, and hubris, peopled with vivid, dynamic characters, particularly clever, brave Vasya, who outsmarts men and demons alike to save her family.”—Booklist (starred review) “An extraordinary retelling of a very old tale . . . The Bear and the Nightingale is a wonderfully layered novel of family and the harsh wonders of deep winter magic.”—Robin Hobb

Maria Filicia Garcma took to opera like a nightingale to song. The daughter of world-famous tenor Manuel del Popolo Vicente Garcia, who was also a control freak, she made her dibut in opera at the ripe old age of seventeen on two days' notice in June 1825. Engaged to sing the leading role of Rosina in Rossini's Barber of Seville at the King's Theatre in London, she was an overnight sensation. Garcia discovered that she was having a fling with a young man and whisked her away to America. The Garcma Opera Troupe set sail for New York on a packet ship and thus brought opera sung in Italian to the New World. Maria's success at the Park Theatre in New York was equally phenomenal. Newspapers described her as 'the magnet who attracted all eyes and won all hearts" and rhapsodized over 'the silver tones of the Signorina." One of the men who fell under the spell was a ship owner named Eugene Malibran. They were married on the day before her eighteenth birthday, and soon she became well known as Maria Malibran. In addition to singing, Maria was a composer of songs, something else she probably learned at her father's knee. Garcia is said to have written 90 operas and operettas as well as many songs. Around fifty songs came from Maria's pen. The Malibran Society, a nonprofit corporation founded by Carol Russell Law, has republished twenty of them thus far. The Nightingale also contains music - the vocal lines and lyrics of nine songs and arias that play a part in the dramatic story of Maria Malibran, who was said by many to have been the first superstar of opera.

Between two hills was a decrepit hall. Of what manner of architecture had gone into its spirit and flesh, I could not tell. The profuse and overgrown garden around it--the wild apple trees that climbed and fought with one another--obscured its age and look. It was as if each step changed the hall, and the lengthening shadows hinted at its great age, a history spoken in a forgotten language." Ada Ludenow returns to the Harz Mountains of Germany where thirteen years earlier she experienced a love affair that threw her into the uncertainty of life. Hoping to find her lover from that time, she instead finds a hungry but inquisitive supernatural being who may or may not eat her. To forestall becoming his dinner, she tells him of the summer of her twenty-seventh birthday and how it opened the road to Elsewhere.With twenty-one illustrations by the author, The Nightingale's Stone is the first novel set in the world of Hagengard, a place where reality is a plural endeavor by its inhabitants.
