A captivating, atmospheric mystery set in the crystalline winterland of Russia.

Abandoned in a blinding blizzard in the wintry wilds of Russia, Sophie Smith fears for her life. But just like in a fairy tale, a princess comes to her rescue: the beautiful, exotic Anna Volkonskaya. Over a river of ice in a horse-drawn sleigh, she brings Sophie and her friends to a magnificent, if weathered, winter palace.

At first, Sophie is enchanted by Princess Anna's stories of long-ago royalty, of white wolves and gray diamonds. But when the princess takes a particular interest in her, Sophie grows concerned. What is her place in the sinister mystery that surrounds her? Even as the wind and wolves howl outside, is she more in danger now, a prisoner of the palace, than she ever was lost in the snow?

CATHRYN CONSTABLE is a former journalist whose articles have appeared in Tatler and The Sunday Times of London among other publications. The Wolf Princess is her first novel. She is married with three children and lives in London, England.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for The Wolf Princess:"Constable's lyrical storytelling creates a hypnotic realm of ice, and from this mythical setting emerges a message about rising above one's circumstances and discovering a sense of belonging." -Publishers Weekly"Middle-grade readers will likely be carried along by the non-traditional setting and a sprinkling of Russian words (defined in a glossary in the back), which guarantee a special read." -Shelf Awareness"Fans of novelized fairy tales will likely enjoy this modern, Russian spin on the genre." -Booklist"The breathtaking, wintry setting brings this old-fashioned fairy tale to life . . . The Wolf Princess will appeal most to strong female readers looking to curl up with a dark tale on a cold, wintry night." -School Library Journal
