Set in medieval Russia, this story beautifully illustrates different cultural practices and folktales from the time. Vasya is different. She is like her mysterious Grandmother: she is the only one living who can see the guardian spirits of her home. During her childhood she runs wild, befriending all these spirits and learning from them, until her father one day remarries. Her new step-mother surprisingly can also see these protective spirits--but calls them demons and tries to drive them out with the help of a charismatic new priest, opening their home to attacks from the ill-intentioned creatures lurking in the ancient wood. Definitely a must-read for anyone who likes grown-up fairy tales! -Kate

This book is one of the most unique SciFi books I've read--definitely a must for those who enjoy being thrown into a world and having to figure it out for yourself. Awesome world building and fantastic mind games. Kel Charis is a disgraced Captain in the hexarchate and is given a chance to redeem herself. It's simple: retake the most impenetrable fortress ever built. She comes up with an idea so crazy it just might work. Why not wake up the undefeated tactician Shudos Jedao and use him? Never mind that he inexplicably massacred everyone under his command after defeating the enemy in his last battle. It's her only chance. -Kate
