A Question of Magic by E. D. Baker is bargain priced again--it was on sale this past spring--for $1.99. It is part of the The Big Deal: Kindle Books Up to 85% Off which started yesterday on Amazon and lasts through 10/5/14. It was the only fair tale related title on the list although there are some other fine titles for sale, too.
Published late last year, this one is part of the Baba Yaga trend in fairy tale retellings that I've mentioned on the blog here of late.
Serafina was living the normal life of a village girl, when she gets a mysterious letter--her first letter ever, in fact--from a great aunt she's never heard of in another village. Little does 'Fina know, her great aunt is actually a Baba Yaga, a magical witch who lives in an even more magical cottage.
Summoned to the cottage, Serafina's life takes an amazing turn as she finds herself becoming the new Baba Yaga. But leaving behind home and the boy she loves isn't easy, and as Serafina grows into her new and magical role answering the first question any stranger might ask her with the truth, she also learns about the person she's meant to be, and that telling the future doesn't always mean knowing the right answers.
In her inimitable and bestselling way, ED Baker has crafted a funny and romantic story that combines some fabulous details from the original Slavic tale, with an all new spin!
