The House with Chicken Legs

Reading this book, from the start I found it a tad strange. The whole concept of Yaga and the mythology it’s from feels like it doesn’t get much of an explanation until too late on in the book and I get this from a narrative standpoint as it’s being told from Marinka’s perspective but it does add quite a lot of confusion to reading though. It wasn’t an overall bad read though, while the conclusion to several of the character arcs did seem a bit cheap they did seem a natural direction for the story to take even if some characters viewpoints had to be warped a bit to fit it. So while I don’t think it deserves to win the award, it certainly wasn’t a waste of time reading like a couple of last year’s nominees.
