In a fantasy version of medieval Russia Sasha is an orphaned stableboy cursed by bad luck or so he and the entire town believes Anything Sasha wishes can come true which is actually a terrifying unpredictable power as a young child he wished for his father to stop beating him and his house promptly burnt down killing both his parents Sasha tries very hard therefore not to wish for anything never to get angry and to want as little as possibleAll of this changes when he meets Pyetr a young gambler who has ingratiated himself with the rich men of town by being charming and fun But Pyetr is unfairly accused of murder and his friends abruptly become a lot less charmed leaving Pyetr with no one to rely on but a chance met Sasha The two of them flee town together and uickly find themselves lost in a forest in late winter the worst time of year mud and melt and dead branches and nothing new growing yet They re taken in by a mysterious old man who could be a wizard and thus tied to Sasha s own power of wishing who asks in return for his help that they rescue his dead daughter currently a rusalka a sort of hungry ghost And then things get complicatedI liked the magic system in this book a lot Magic is powerful and nearly everywhere but it is also impossible to predict slippery and wiley and full of unintended conseuences There are ent like forest spirits huge shapeshifter river things protective and oddly cute house guardians People give away their hearts literally and wizards prove to be very hard to trustSasha is a great character good hearted and uncertain of himself and desperately wanting a friend He reminded me a lot of Maia from The Goblin Emperor that same sort of young man thrust into a position of power and struggling to learn how to use it without doing harm and meanwhile being very lonely Rusalka as a whole has a similar sweet uplifting tone to The Goblin Emperor in fact though with a adventurous plot and a bit loss in the end It also has a lot of people trudging through the woods at the end of their rope injured and exhausted and under various spells or ghost influence with all the accompanying HC Which I know is a plus for many of you D Sasha and Pyetr have an adorable friendship and are constantly worrying about one another and putting the other first It s a great book though in a particularly iddy fanfic sort of way It s also the first of a trilogy and I am looking forward to reading the others Note I read the version available on Cherryh s website which apparently has been slightly rewritten from the version published originally She talks a bit about the choice to rewrite here

Cherryh Ugh I love Russian folklore so I was hopeful for a series that would share some of what has so enthralled me over the years but this series falls sharply short The prose is muddled the representation of pre Christian Russian beliefs oddly skewed and the plot trajectory awkward and unsatisfying I never made it past this first book of the trilo
