As fall fades away and the days shorten, long nights become the perfect time for telling stories. Some stories pull us closer to the fireside, keeping our minds away from what might be lurking in the dark. But other stories encourage us to peer into the darkness and imagine what waits for us, just out of sight. Are you ready for the longest night of the year? What story will you tell? Perhaps one of the books listed below will find their way into your hands this winter.
Looking to embrace the dark and cold, rather than warm yourself by the fireside? Check out one of these chilling reads! They contain cold landscapes and maybe even some lycanthropes. But most importantly, they revolve around wintery (or winter-ish) settings. Titles have been listed in downloadable format when available.
