did not like it
bookshelves: disrecommendations
Read in January, 1996

Ugh. I love Russian folklore, so I was hopeful for a series that would share some of what has so enthralled me over the years, but this series falls sharply short. The prose is muddled, the representation of pre-Christian Russian beliefs oddly skewed and the plot trajectory awkward and unsatisfying. I never made it past this first book of the trilogy and don't plan to.
