Rate this:
She can be the enemy of your nightmares or the spirit guide to your dreams. She travels using a giant mortar and pestle and lives in a shack surrounded by a fence of skulls and bones. She is Baba Yaga, a crone who ruthlessly uses the needy and greedy for her own devices. In this anthology of stories Baba Yaga lands in some spectacular scenarios. A Jewish resistance fighter in World War II Poland must gain her help to vanquish supernatural men and avenge the loss of her comrades. A young mother leaves her family to serve the witch in penance for committing a terrible wrong. One story delves into Baba Yaga's tragic origins, while another re-examines the classic tale of Vasilisa, following the young girl who comes to Baba Yaga for fire on her own journey from maiden to mother to crone.
