The novel “The Baba Yaga” by Eric Brown and Una McCormack was published for the first time in 2015. It’s the third book of the Weird Space series and follows “Satan’s Reach”.
The Expansion’s government is taking very seriously the information gathered about the threat posed by the aliens known as the Weird but there are disagreements about the measures to be taken. For the intelligence services it’s difficult to get precise information about creatures that literally come from another universe but the prospect is to destroy the planets where the aliens have opened portals killing all the local population.
Delia Walker is an intelligence analyst who proposes to follow a trace that would lead her to search for a planet in the area of space called Satan’s Reach where humans and Weird are said to live peacefully. Her position is definitely a minority but she believes it’s crucial to investigate so she decides to do it without the government’s support.
