BABA YAGA I have come to realize in her archaic state, Baba Jaga's nose, is a Bird Beak, now it makes sense with her shamanic beginnings with her making healing in her pestle and mortar. Used since ancient times to prepare healing ingredients, grinding them into a fine paste or powder.
The second book of the trilogy. A little too much "Oh gosh I'm so useless and don't know what to do" for me, but otherwise a great follow up. If you haven't heard yet, Chapter 62 will definitely be your favorite.
