The Girl Who Drank the Moon meets Pax in this fantastical tale of a wolf who forms an unlikely alliance with Baba Yaga to save the forest from a wicked tsar.

Since she was a pup, Zima has been taught to fear humans—especially witches—but when her family is threatened, she has no choice but to seek help from the witch Baba Yaga.

Baba Yaga never does magic for free, but it just so happens that she needs a wolf’s keen nose for a secret plan she’s brewing… Before Zima knows what’s happening, the witch has cast a switching spell and run off into the woods, while Zima is left behind in Baba Yaga’s hut—and Baba Yaga’s body!

Meanwhile, a young village girl named Nadya is also seeking the witch’s help, and when she meets Zima (in Baba Yaga’s form), they discover that they face a common enemy. With danger closing in, Zima must unite the wolves, the witches and the villagers against an evil that threatens them all.


This book was received from the Author, and Publisher, in exchange for an honest review. Opinions and thoughts expressed in this review are completely my own.

This is a non spoiler review, because you as reader need to read this book. Also, I feel sometimes I have in the past gave away to much of the plot line. This has diminished the pleasure for would be readers

A YA middle grade historical fantasy based in Russia. A Wolf for a Spell featuring my all time favorite perceptive for middle grade books, animal narration.

“I am the forest. It flows through me. And now, I will flow through it.”

A spellbinding Russian inspired tale that is richly detailed.

This story inspired by RussiaA delightful fairy tale told in alternating chapters by three main POV’s. A young orphaned girl Nadya, a female wolf Zima, and the witch Baba Yada… and the woods that must be saved.

These three characters will find their past cross and their destinies enter-woven together in charming middle grade book.

Karah Sutton delivers a compelling, intriguing, and well-written read here with absolutely fantastic characters that I found myself captivated with.

This stunning book that I can’t wait to read more from author.

Karah Sutton has loved Baba Yaga, ballet, and blini ever since she had to do a research project on her Russian heritage in the third grade. Her hunger for adventure inspired her to move from Kentucky to New Zealand, where it was rumored she would find talking trees and the occasional wood elf. Karah spent four years as a bookseller before she turned to writing her own fiction. A Wolf For a A Spell is her first novel.
