🎧 The Witch and the Tsar by Olesya Salnikova Gilmore @OlesyaAuthor #KatiaKapustin @AceRocBooks @PRHAudio #LoveAudiobooks

I enjoyed this sort of retelling of the story of Baba Yaga.  The Witch and the Tsar has the Russian mythology feel like books by Naomi Novik (Spinning Silver), and Katherine Arden (The Winternight Trilogy) and oddly, some of the folklore is even in the Robin LeFever’s Fair Assassins series.  Of course, this book has […]
