Customer Review

on 6 March 2003
Young Ivan "Vanya" Smetski never felt quite at home anywhere. When he was 10 years old, his father "rediscovered" his Jewish blood in a gambit to escape the dying Soviet Union, and finally brought the family to the United States. But Ivan was bound to go even farther. When walking through a Ukrainian clearing, he finds a beautiful woman asleep on a pedestal, guarded by a huge bear. Kissing this sleeping beauty awake, he suddenly finds himself whisked off Ninth Century Russia to face the wrath of the princess' enemy, the dreaded Baba Yaga.
This is a truly wonderful book. I quickly found myself locked on the story, setting aside all other reading materials so I could devote all of my time to this book. The characters are interesting, and the storyline is gripping. The author does an excellent job of transporting the reader to another time and place. I recommend this book wholeheartedly.
