Editorial Reviews


Reviewed By Vincent Dublado for Readers' Favorite

In Slavic folklore, there is more to mermaids than mere femmefatalism. In the second book in the Spirits and Creatures series, Ronesa Aveela presents A Study of Rusalki - Slavic Mermaids of Eastern Europe, where she takes a closer look at these mysterious females who reside in unknown turbulent waters. It is a specialized study in Slavic folklorethat focuses exclusively on the origins, variations, and symbolism ofthe rusalki. Brilliantly told, here we can trace that the Slavic rusalki has its parallels and derivation from the Greek sirens of Homer andsignificantly developed their own arcane identity. This book containsreferences from the works of classicists and scholars that add depth tothe presentation. We learn that the Rusalki lore has variations and isregion-specific, which makes these mythical creations versatilecharacters in fantasy literature, film, and popular culture.

Although scholarly references are generously provided, A Study ofRusalki does not sound academic, but more of a fun and informativereference that is a cross between an encyclopedia and an illustratedstorybook. Ronesa Aveela's writing voice shines with such passion forher subject that we are drawn into the discovery of one of folklore'senigmatic creations. At the end of the book, you come to realize thatthe rusalki are redeemed from their putative malicious intent towardmankind into a promise of romantic, sirenic images. This book is an easy read for general readers. Fantasy writers and storytellers will findthis an excellent reference on the literature of the rusalki.
