Wickedly Wonderful Baba Yaga #2Known as the wicked Baba Yaga MOBI #245 witch of Russian fairy tales Baba Yaga is Wickedly Wonderful eBook #198 not one woman but rather a title carried by a chosen few They Wonderful Baba Yaga PDFEPUB #188 keep the balance of nature and guard the borders of our world but don’t make the mistake of crossing one of themThough she looks like a typical California surfer girl Beka Yancy is in fac. I had a fantastic time with the first book in the series and was awed just a bit from the creative Baba Yaga world It was a no contest decision to take up the seuel telling the story of the next Baba Yaga Beka Yancy This book moves things to a new territory the beautiful central California coast and focuses on an adventure by and in the sea since this Baba claims water as her strongest magical element It's only fitting that her Chudo Yudo is disguised as a huge loveable Newfoundland her hut is an eclectically decorated school bus and her preferred wheels are a surf board and a Karmann Ghia Since this one got the reader up to speed and dove into the story the character development and the romance with just brief reminders as to the backdrop and a lot of the magical world surrounding the Baba Yagas I was much better pleased with this installment than the first one This one could be read out of order or as a standalone as there is enough description to get the reader in the loop but my advice is to get them in order As I said the worldbuilding is better teased out in the first oneThe story opens just as Beka has been released to be on her own as a full fledged Baba Yaga when her mentor the previous Baba Yaga is retired to the Otherworld Beka feels shaky about her abilities and even harbors serious doubts that being a Baba Yaga is what she wants to do And that's before she lands on the bad side of a cantankerous fisherman while out on a rescue and then a huge problem is dropped into her lap Beka is approached by the Mer ueen and the Selkie King because something is poisoning their home in the deep hidden trench and their people are sick and dying She strikes the deal to aid them even though she is convinced that this is way above her pay gradeMarcus returned from a 12 year career as a marine when he is contacted by a concerned friend that his dad is being treated for cancer He left the crusty old Irish fisherman and that world behind with only bad memories attached to his dad's harshness and his younger brother's death but now he's back in the middle of it all determined to help someone who makes it clear he doesn't want Marcus or his help Marcus believes he is almost as inhuman as his old da after years spent at war and it doesn't help that he is bristly and suspicious of the gorgeous blond surfer who he suspects is up to something He can't help but be affected by her sunny nature and bright smiles even as he fights to resist the attraction He has no use for flaky hippy types or any type of woman for that matter She got around him and hired out his dad's boat to carry her out to dive for treasure or so she claimsWhile Beka hunts unsuccessfully for the source of what is poisoning the sea kingdom and killing its peoples along with tentatively coming to a sort of understanding with Marcus she meets the suave charismatic Selkie Prince who wishes to court her for his own purposes She is no closer to finishing her difficult tasks when the Fairy ueen adds another immediate problem to her pile that is endangering humans and magical kind alike and her former mentor has grave doubts about Beka's ability to handle it all Beka must decide what she really wants and she must reach down inside herself to find if she has what it takes to be a Baba Yaga When its all over she suspects that she will lose either way because surely her cranky magic hating fisherman will leave her behind even though her dragon cautions her to give a chance to the unexpectedAs I said the plot on this one got going and kept going at a good pace It was full of changing scenes and situations character development intrigue and yes a nice slow developing romance Beka is very different from the Baba in the previous story Where Barbara was confident and edgier and in the prime of her knowledge and power Beka is a rookie and she is as lacking in confidence as they come Fortunately her dragon gives her some verbal boots up the butt to get over it and get busy There are several things going on to capture the attention from Beka's two missions to her personal dilemma her choice of men interested in her Marcus' thing with his sick dad and his issues and attraction to Beka Marcus and Beka were a good match Marcus' stalwart strength and drive supported Beka when she needed to lean on his help and it was good for him to have someone who needed him Beka was also good for Marcus because her light and generous kind hearted nature was able to heal a lot of Marcus' internal wounds They make a good romantic pair but also worked well together when faced with trouble And like the first book there is blessedly no untoward drama The book lets the organic conflicts that are already there to challenge the hero and heroine I loved that familiar characters like the Riders and the Fairy ueen made brief appearances even while new characters were introduced My only real niggle and it's just a little one was that I wished that Kesh's point of view hadn't been available as interesting as it was because knowing what he was doing early on took away some of the excitement and suspense Oh the book still had some thrilling moments but I think there could have been if the reader is as in the dark as Beka and Marcus with just the evidence of their eyes and impressionsIn the end it was a superb story and a fantastic seuel showing the series of books just getting stronger From the little bits gleaned from that Epilogue I anticipate things to build even since there looks to be some serious trouble coming maybe for all the Baba Yagas their guys and their friends I think paranormal romance fans who like slow to build story and romance development slightly spicy romance engaging characters and a creative world should give these a goMy thanks to Penguin Group and Net Galley for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review

characters Wickedly Wonderful Baba Yaga #2 ☆ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ✓ [PDF / Epub] ☃ Wickedly Wonderful Baba Yaga #2 Author Deborah Blake – Known as the wicked witch of Russian fairy tales Baba Yaga is not one woman but rather a title carried by a chosen few They keep Ine and his ailing fisherman fatherWhile diving for clues Beka drives Marcus crazy with her flaky New Age ideas and dazzling blue eyes She thinks he’s rigid and cranky and way too attractive Meanwhile a charming Selkie prince has plans that include Beka Only by trusting her powers can Beka save the underwater races pick the right man and choose the path she’ll follow for the rest of her li. Selkies mermpeople and a dragon disguised as a dog how can I not like this book This second book in the Baba Yaga series can be read as a standalone Or it can be skipped all together I was gravely disappointed in the character Beka the youngest Baga Yaga in the States killed it for meI guess this book was to show how Baga Yagas are not all knowing and that they all start somewhere Perhaps whilst Barbara represents the experienced old crone Beka represents the innocent young and DUMB maiden There were so many obvious clues in this book which Beka never picked up on until it was shoved into her face Her lack in ability to assess a person just drove me batty Her lack of self confidence was a complete downer in this book for me From romance perspective it was weak I didn't get why Marcus and Beka should have been paired together Other than perhaps Marcus is the realist who can keep Beka grounded Because her uasi hippie positive view of people is so Disney that I wanted to barf A few of the plot holes in this book are annoying because they feel contrived For example Beka and Chewie left the Water of Life and Death unguarded Seriously Is that NOT the cardinal rule Why on EARTH would they leave it unguardedWhy is this still a 2 star Because I liked the world I like the merpeople and I liked Marcus and his father Everything other than Beka was done rather well and enjoyable I really liked Chewie the water dragon disguised as a Newfoundland dog He is probably my favourite character in this book This book was a letdown after the first one With all my favourite elements in here to only be desecrated by an idiot female lead not worth the read
