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?

From The Wolf Princess
Sophie felt a rush of excitement. For once, something extraordinary was happening to her: She had been invited to stay with a Russian princess!
Princess Anna Feodorovna Volkonskaya played with the gray diamond rings, then slipped one off and slid it onto Sophie's middle finger.
"I can't!" Sophie said. "I can't possibly accept anything so valuable!" She felt panicky. What would her friends think? They knew she had nothing of value to her name. They might think . . . oh, it would be horrid . . . that she had stolen the ring. No. Better not to take such things.
"It was a gift to me. And now I am giving it to you. Is this not what friends do?" The princess's gray eyes looked cold. "You would make me feel unhappy if you don't accept it."
"One day you will give me something in return," the princess said. She sounded very certain.
