Reviews

"With this clever, fast-paced debut, Pasternack draws upon the myth and folklore of Kievan Rus' to deliver a delightful tale....that never loses its sense of fun or wonder."--Publishers Weekly

"Pasternack's debut is an irresistible blend of moral quandaries, magic, humor, danger, and bravery. Imaginative details bestow a fairy-tale-like quality to the story, which will effortlessly ensnare historical fantasy fans."--Booklist

"[T]ruly likable characters in [an] original setting. This delightful series opener is an exciting blend of Russian and Jewish traditions."--Kirkus

"Pasternack eagerly depicts life in an tenth-century Russian village imbued with magic and folklore, riddled with many references to Anya's family's religion, their Jewish traditions, and the discrimination they face. The plot keeps readers on their toes with skillful pacing....Jewish readers may find kindred spirits in Anya's culture, and fans of a Russian setting won't be disappointed by this immersive novel that ends in justice."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books​
