What I will say is that it is a charming, thoughtful read.
Young girl Makva is coming to terms with who she is, and that The Leshy of the title is dead. Relationships between The Leshy and the natural world are explored, along with the power of witchcraft, but at its centre is Makva, questioning where she fits in the world, and the order of things.
It's a treat to read - not quite as straightforward a read as NC Stow's work The Kupala Tree, which I reviewed recently, but more philosophical in nature.
It's like a snowflake melting on your tongue. Pure to taste, transient in nature but memorable nonetheless.
The Leshy left me wanting to know more about the characters and their lives, particularly the Domovoy, the witches, and the elementals. I think the author should make The Leshy one chapter of a collection of folkloric tales set in this world. I'd be interested in reading more stories in the same vein.
The author takes you on an emotional journey through a Siberian winter. I knew it was a short story, and in the pages allowed, we caught glimpses of the protagonist's character, her motivation and her family. I would have liked a little more fleshing out.
I'm happy to recommend this short story for those who prefer their fairytales a little more on the darker side. An enjoyable read.
