The Girl in the Tower by Katherine Arden. Published by Ballantine 

This is a book I have been waiting for with baited breath. The first book, The Bear and the Nightingale, swept be back to old Russia, and a world of magic, demons and the danger of turning your back on the old ways. Now, Vasya is on her own after the death of her father. In Rus, a woman is not allowed to live on her own, Vasya can choose to marry or join a convent. Instead she chooses to run away in the middle of a dark and bitter winter. Can she count on Morozko, the frost demon for help? Meanwhile, her brother, Sasha, is employed as an advisor to the prince of Moscow. These are uneasy times as the Khan demands a monetary tribute from Moscow every year and war hovers on the horizon. This story was worth the wait, and lovers of The Bear and the Nightingale will not be disappointed
