Wickedly Spirited is a fun novella from Deborah Blake’s Baba Yaga universe that tells the tale of apprentice Jazz, who first appeared in the third Baba Yaga book Wickedly Powerful, and her attempt to help the Riders. At about sixty pages in length, it is a quick read perfect for fans anxiously awaiting the release of Dangerously Devine, the second book focusing on the Baba’s companion protector Riders.
Once immortal, the Riders lost their powers at the hand of a rogue Baba Yaga and are struggling to acclimate to their new lives. Jazz, who witnessed firsthand the devastation inflicted on the three Riders, wants to fix them. As an apprentice, her knowledge and experience are limited, but her powers are strong. She is sure, with the confidence only a teenager can have, that she can take elements from various spells and come up with a cure, even though the other Babas, and even the queen of the otherworld, have failed. Thus begins the hunt for “ingredients” and ends with an unexpected result.
Since the novella is short, there is not a great deal of detail, and the plot is rather simple. It is, however, a treat to visit the characters. I recommend it for fans of the Baba Yaga and Rider series.
