Review:  Wickedly Powerful (Baba Yaga #3) by Deborah Blake

Review: Wickedly Powerful (Baba Yaga #3) by Deborah Blake

February 11, 2016 Review 0 ★★★

In this third Baba Yaga book we are introduced to Bella, the Baba Yaga who watches over the forests and deserts of the Midwestern states. It was fun coming back to this series and seeing a modern take on the Baba Yaga of Slavic fairy tales. Since Baba Yaga lives in the forest in the old stories, Wickedly Powerful portrays a Baba in her most natural habitat amongst the trees and forest creatures.

Review: Wickedly Dangerous (Baba Yaga, #1) by Deborah Blake

Review: Wickedly Dangerous (Baba Yaga, #1) by Deborah Blake

The mythology of Baba Yaga portrays her as an old witch who lives in the woods in a spinning house that stands on chicken feet. She helps or hurts those who look for her based on what they do for her. I grew up reading and hearing stories of Baba Yaga so it was great to see a book that could effectively ‘modernize’ Baba Yaga and still keep the essence of who she is and what she does for people. I liked how the Baba Yaga mythology is added to with Barbara Yagar acting as a guardian between the human and the Otherworld where the fairies live.
