I'm embarrassed to confess I can't remember who recommended Wickedly Dangerous to me. They were right, though. This re-imagining of Baba Yaga in modern America is interesting. Wonderful world building.
The romance and issues are real, at the heart of the fantastical paranormal elements. That gave the book strength and momentum.
There's an environmental/political element to the book that worked for me since I agreed with it. If you didn't though, I'm not sure if you'd enjoy the story so much. Definitely one for anti-frakkers.
Sorry the review's short. Real life is interfering :)
