My rating: 4 of 5 stars
If I had to pinpoint the best part of this book then for me it would be the introduction of the absolute best character from my childhood – Baba Yaga. Some would probably think that she is some kind of boogeyman with her stone leg and penchant for eating people, but she is also probably the most funny and charismatic character of slavic folklore.
Of course here she wasn’t exactly herself so it’s not like you’ll be treated to the whole awesomeness, still, her swearing in genuine russian (as opposed to the mangled russian I see in the movies and tv-shows) somewhat makes up for that.
Tell me I’m wrong but is there some hope for father/daughter reconciliation, howether small? Because the truth injections we got about Voron left a bad taste in my mouth. I guess, I’ll find out soon enough.
Over and out
P.S.: Isn’t it sweet, the love names Curran and Kate use for each other? 😀
