Narrator Kathleen Gati invites listeners to embark on a journey of defiance and bravery alongside protagonist Vasilisa Petrovna. Gati seamlessly brings to life the myriad characters found in Kathleen Arden's second Winternight Trilogy novel. Most of the reappearing "cherti" that aid Vasilisa are characterized by their disconcerted and raspy voices, though some, like the "bannik" and the demon, have softer, slyer tones. While born of a high social class, Vasilisa doesn't put on airs. Read by Gati, her words are always steady and confident as she fights for her and her family's freedom. Weaving Russian history and folklore with a powerful narrative, this audiobook makes for a captivating listen. V.C.
