Amazing Read - Disappear Into Another World Nov. 28 2012
By MelaLyn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I just finished reading The Baba Yaga's Daughter by C.E. Murphy... it was divine. I felt like I was in an old library, hidden in a corner with a small lamp, devouring a leather-bound book I found inconspicuously mixed in with the fiction when it should have been shelved with `fact'. Like it was handwritten in script with ink and quill and the owner of the library either had no idea what they possessed or were clever enough to shelve it where it would be hidden in plain sight. The language was lush, the stories interwoven intricately enough to stand on their own but with small hints to broaden the back-story of the others. I highly recommend this book... either to ready fans who follow her work or as an excellent introduction to the quality of her writing and stories.

Off-beat and unusual. May 21 2013
By Rumplefrogskin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I've read a lot of SF and Fantasy over the years, and this was some original and innovative material, I am pleased to report.

Vampires herein are not the current faddish sort, nor even Lugosi-ish, and the reader was required to think a bit.

All in all, I was quite happy with this find
Audio review of Baba Yaga's Daughter and Other Stories of the Old Races Feb. 3 2015
By jane yates - Published on Amazon.com
This is an enchanted tale that has been skilfully brought to life by Anna’s colourful narration. The plot is not straight forward at all but several stories spun together in a delightful mix.
Many parts to the story stretch over different continents and many generations. In it Murphy writes of truths, half-truths, folklore and legions.
I liked how she wrote the female characters with strong leads and they were both brave and fearful. Not meek or in any way subservient, which is often the case in some old fashioned tales.
The two main male characters, the dragonlord Janx and the dashing vampire Eliseo Daisani are both powerful in their own rights and make an uneasy friendship. However both of them are never without a woman in their lives to complete or complicate them.
Being a child still at heart, I loved the witches best, Baba Yaga, and her chicken leg hut that could not cross running water and the daughter who had no name. Anna gave Russian inflections to their lines as she read them, and made them seam formidable pair, I certainly would not like to meet Baba Yaga in the dark.

Anna wide range of voices forced me to stop listening at one point and to check there was indeed only one narrator. How she jumped from a Russian voice to an American in the same paragraph was mesmerising.
Along with vampires, there is an interesting an skilfully written female vampire hunter. I felt a bit like I was exploring a secret world. I was transfixed by the dragons who could take on the form of humans alongside tales of gargoyles and silkies.
Not only were all the magical creatures in this story beautifully written, but also humans characters, who’s lives became intertwined with the old races intriguing and fairy like way.
There were interesting settings, old fashioned speakeasy’s to modern day settings.
This is an enchanted tale, but I am glad I listened to it rather than reading it as its dripped though with long and tasty descriptions, and having them read out to you gives you more of a chance to absorb and admire them.
This is the first time I have come across Murphy’s writing and I would really look forward to reading/listening to some more of her fantastic written work.
A magical listen, Anna has a skilful reading of the wonderful characters was both relaxing and hugely enjoyable. I am looking forward to listening to other Audiobook’s that Anna has narrated. Especially looking forward to her upcoming reading of the Audiobook, ‘Garden.’
Baba Yaga is an old friend of mine March 3 2014

When I was a child, I loved fairy tales, of all cultures. Baba Yaga was serialized in a children's magazine that my parents got for me, and I remember her hut with chicken feet, and her rapid travel in a mortar very well. Reading the story of her daughter was perfectly natural for me, a logical progression, and I found her travails to be a welcome diversion from my work injuries.
And I've got a soft spot for Ms Murphy, having learned her works by reading EVERY story of Jo Walker!
