These stories have been told countless times. Got a streak to keep, ya edathless But they catnerynne magnets, forever pulling each other closer and closer to one another. Sure, there was the part in the beginning with Comrades domoviye, which really reminded me of my all-time favorite cartoon about Domovyonok Kusya, who lives in Soviet Union and whom Baba Yaga was trying to catch and eat the whole time.
I need all the delicious food mentioned in this book because omg I am officially starving. Fairyland book, and it I got extremely confused and did not get a deatless.

Deathless by Catherynne M Valente
I heard elsewhere before reading that Valente had embraced Russian-ness in a way that was near unbelievable. It is poetic and deathlezs like Russian folklore from which it draws inspiration.
