When myth becomes nightmare ... The price of blood is always blood.

Natalia's in trouble. She only looked away for a second, and now her brother's hurt. Her relationship with her mother is fractured, her brother's condition is deteriorating, and her only hope lays deep in the unforgiving forest. A secret spoken only in whispers offers a way out. But when help comes in occult forms a sacrifice may be the only way to restore the balance.

Humanity and nature collide in The Balance by Kev Harrison, a modern reimagining of the Slavic folk tale of Baba Yaga, set in Cold War Poland.

Review quote

"Part folk tale, part eco-horror, Harrison's novella achieves the perfect 'balance' of enchantment, mystery and shudders." - Dave Jeffrey, author of Beatrice Beecham's Ship of Shadows, Necropolis Rising and Tooth & Claw
