Publisher's Summary

Older than she looks and powerful beyond measure, Barbara Yager no longer has much in common with the mortal life she left behind long ago. Posing as an herbalist and a researcher, she travels the country with her faithful (mostly) dragon-turned-dog in an enchanted Airstream, fulfilling her duties as a Baba Yaga and avoiding any possibility of human attachment.

But when she is summoned to find a missing child, Barbara suddenly finds herself caught up in a web of deceit and an unexpected attraction to the charming but frustrating sheriff Liam McClellan. Now, as Barbara fights both human enemies and Otherworld creatures to save the lives of three innocent children, she discovers that her most difficult battle may be with her own heart.

Absolutely FABULOUS!

I was very hesitant to purchase this audio book when I listened to the sample. It seemed pretty boring and the woman's voice was quite annoying. However, her voice quickly grew on me - especially when I heard her the accents she used. It really brought the story to life. As for the story itself... Absolutely FABULOUS! I've enjoyed reading a few of Deborah Blake's books and thought I'd try some fiction for my own inspiration. I was not disappointed in the least! The characters are all well-rounded, the details of both worlds are well written, and the plot is very tight. I honestly look forward to the second book in this series.

A fun story with some memorable characters

What did you like best about Wickedly Dangerous? What did you like least?

I really like Baba and Liam. Though the riders were my favorite.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

The story became a bit drawn out with Maya. It really pushed my patience with the whole Melissa plot line. If I lived in that town, I would have moved!

What three words best describe Romy Nordlinger’s performance?

I absolutely loved her Russian accents.

Do you think Wickedly Dangerous needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

I believe it already has.

Wickedly Dangerous

I'm not generally a fan of fairytales retold, but the Baba Yaga myth is one I'm not as familiar with, so I thought I'd give it a try. It was delightful! The narrator did a great job with the character voices, I could tell them apart most of the time. The main couple & supporting characters were well drawn & although the plot twisted around a few times, it was still a satisfying ending. 👍👍

My only complaint really is the practice across the board of de-fanging the bad guys in these fairytales & making them good guys.

Not For Me

I didn't care for this book. Barbara Yager came off as a wannabe witch and the plot was slow and amateurish. I'm not going to get the next one.
