Dusty Pages Review: The Wolf Princess

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 ...

This is a good easy read that took me just a few hours (4 1/2). I enjoyed the journey even if it was quite clear as to where things were headed. There is a host of interesting characters and the setting of a dilapidated palace - as Sophie would put it "Romantic and Magical" is a interesting change from some of the YA fantasy I've been reading lately.

There is something almost like a classic fairy tale element to this tale, with the high snow, the sleigh rides and the hidden treasure waiting to be discovered. The story ending was a little open ended for my liking for a stand alone book - it felt like there could be more and I am disappointed that there wasn't.

I give it
