Early in the story, he muses that in a French or English retelling of the tale, the prince and princess would live happily ever after. But, only a fool would want to live through the Russian version of any fairy tale. Although his fears turn out to be warranted, as he and his cursed princess contend with the diabolical witch Baba Yaga--easily Russias best pre-Khrushchev villain--to save the princesss kingdom, Enchantment is ultimately a sweet story. Mixing magic and modernity, the acclaimed Orson Scott Card (Enders Game) has woven threads of history, religion, and myth together into a convincing, time-hopping tale that is part love story, part adventure.

Enchantments heroes, Prince Ivan and Princess Katerina, must deal with cross-cultural mores, ancient gods, treacherous kinsmen (and fianceés), and ultimately Baba Yaga herself.Card has a knack for coming across like your nerdy dad at times, when he runs on too long or makes some particularly wince-inducing observation or reference (Daaad, Bruce Cockburn is not cool!). But, as you might expect of a good dad, as uncool as he might be, Card still manages to tell a good bedtime story. --Paul Hughes
