Every one that I have read, I have loved. This one is no exception. This is a story of East meets West and they, of course, collide. Vasilisa is the daughter of a prominent lord in the north of Russia. She is a very special girl with some very special friends.
An upstart bishop from the city gets sent out to the tundra to curtail the wildness. His Orthodox doctrine is not welcome by all who live in the cold grip of the Frost King.
This is such a great story, and you really should go read it.
