VassaIn the mystical and magical land of Brooklyn lives Vassa and her not so pleasant stepmother and constantly  bickering step sisters. The wealthy and glamorous people put on their absolutely adorable shoes and go out partying often. There is a huge cultural divide between the upper class people and the working class and they don't mix. Magic is often to be found and dealt with but many times it is wiser just to leave magic alone. 

The local convenience store is run by Babs Yagg (think legend Babba Yagga) who has no issues with beheading shoplifters or dealing with people with her own personal sense of justice.  One night Vassa is sent out by her bickering step sisters to get light bulbs. This is very much a death sentence as she knows what can happen at the convenience store, but she herself has her own little piece of magic that she carries with her. Vassa just may be able to free her Brooklyn neighborhood from Babs but only if the playing field is level and fair. 

Vassa in the Night is a thrilling modern take on a fairy tale. Indulge yourself and give it a read.
