Overview
"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 the balance of nature and guard the borders of our world, but don t make the mistake of crossing one of them "
Though she looks like a typical California surfer girl, Beka Yancy is in fact a powerful yet inexperienced witch who s struggling with her duties as a Baba Yaga. Luckily she has her faithful dragon-turned-dog for moral support, especially when faced with her biggest job yet
A mysterious toxin is driving the Selkie and Mer from their homes deep in the trenches of Monterey Bay. To investigate, Beka buys her way onto the boat of Marcus Dermott, a battle-scarred former U.S. Marine, and his ailing fisherman father.
While 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 life "

Blake mashes up Slavic and Gaelic lore with mixed results in her second Baba Yaga contemporary (after Wickedly Dangerous). Beka Yancy, who has recently become one of the traveling witches who share the name of Baba Yaga, needs to cure a mysterious, fatal disease attacking mermaids and selkies off the coast of Monterey, Calif. She hires a gruff fisherman to take her diving. This angers his son, ex-Marine Marcus Dermott, who disdains hippy-dippy chicks. That’s fine with Beka, who thinks he’s uptight and angry. Besides, she has no time for men; she’s got the sea folks to save and an oily selkie prince to fend off, and she’s starting to feel ill herself. Her tenuous confidence further shrinks when her mentor suggests she’s not up to her task. If not for nudges from Chewie, her sarcastic dragon companion, she might give up altogether. Humor helps mitigate the lack of heat in the inevitable romance between Beka and Marcus, but the magic of the selkie myth is lost in translation. Agent: Elaine Spencer, Knight Agency. (Dec.)
