About the book

Magic. Nightmares. Naughty children.

A witch’s work is never done.

Baba Yaga had taken the last century off to focus on herself. And then a couple of immortal idiots went and created the Warp – which only a few mortals blame on climate change; the rest blame those who are not like them.

A bargain is struck and she sends her fellows out to investigate: the way children are behaving is even worse than advertised. As the one who had always struck fear into the heart of misbehaving children, it is her duty to return to guide mortals. And stop them from killing each other.

But will she do it alone? And what has she learned about witchcraft in the last hundred or so years?

Scroll up to buy now to find out how Baba Yaga will educate – or terrorise – modern children of all ages.

*This is the seventh book in the Irascible Immortals series.

EBook available from your favourite online retailer. Also available in paperback here.

Being something fearsome relegated to the realm of folklore wasn’t too bad. For longer than she cared to remember, Baba Yaga had to curtail the wilder side of children, give sage advice to the pure of heart, and keep her part of the world in balance. She had taken the last century off. After the last would-be Van Helsing mistaking her for a vampire – idiot! – she had decided that she wasn’t being respected, revered or feared anymore and thus humans didn’t deserve her guidance. It had been a blast. For over a century she had been able to sleep in, have breakfast in bed – brought to her by her faithful servants – and catch up with the latest in witchcraft.
