I saw a blog review of this a few weeks ago and was immediately interested – firstly it had the word ‘wolf’ in the title and secondly it had wolves on the cover. Yes, that is all it takes to get me interested. Want me to read your book? Put a wolf on the front and I’m there.
It had a great review and sounded interesting, blending Russian mythology and fairy tales with contemporary characters. All things I like, and it has wolves. Yeah, I have book lust. I’ll be down the library later finding myself a copy.
Alone in the world, Sophie dreams of being someone special, but she could never have imagined this.
On a school trip to Russia, Sophie and her two friends find themselves on the wrong train. They are rescued by the beautiful Princess Anna Volkonskaya, who takes them to her winter palace and mesmerises them with stories of lost diamonds and a tragic past. But as night falls and wolves prowl, Sophie discovers more than dreams in the crumbling palace of secrets.
What books are you lusting after this week?
