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

September 5, 2014 Review 1 ★★★★

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.
