Feodora and her mother live in the snowbound woods of Russia, in a house full of food and fireplaces. Ten minutes away, in a ruined chapel, lives a pack of wolves. Feodora's mother is a wolf wilder, and Feo is a wolf wilder in training. A wolf wilder is the opposite of an animal tamer: it is a person who teaches tamed animals to fend for themselves, and to fight and to run, and to be wary of humans.

When the murderous hostility of the Russian Army threatens her very existence, Feo is left with no option but to go on the run. What follows is a story of revolution and adventure, about standing up for the things you love and fighting back. And, of course, wolves.

Review:

A triumph! Exciting, moving, highly original, fierce, completely convincing (Philip Pullman)

The Wolf Wilder has everything: it's a truly compelling read; it's beautifully written; it's totally original and yet has the familiar feel of an established classic (Jacqueline Wilson)

The most exciting new children's novel for a decade . [Rundell] is a master storyteller in the Philip Pullman category (Amanda Craig The Independent)

Wolves, snow and a heroine worthy of comparison to Lyra Belacqua. It's no mean feat to follow a novel as lauded as Rooftoppers, but Rundell has done it in great style (Editor’s Choice 20th March 2015 The Bookseller, Children’s Special)

This is glorious. A haunting, fast-paced snowy adventure with another superb gutsy heroine told in Rundell's beautiful and witty style (A Case for Books http://bit.ly/1cUOzEG)

The Wolf Wilder is the kind of novel that reminds you why books are worth reading and life is worth living (Lauren St John)

The Wolf Wilder is Katherine Rundell's best book yet - precise, magical and wise - it's a story that will stay with you for a long time after you've read it. I absolutely loved it (Sarah Crossan)

A gorgeous flight of imagination set in a snowy Russian fantasy world, this has both the beauty and the fierce, funny and uncompromising storytelling style that sets Katherine Rundell's books apart. The Wolf Wilder is a Fabergé egg of a novel - rich, bright and perfect (Robin Stevens)

Just finished [the] sparkling, biting, deep-furred, snow-layered, paintbox bright The Wolf Wilder. Absolutely loved it. Gorgeous (Hilary McKay)

Come for the magical storytelling, stay for the breathtaking prose: a new Katherine Rundell novel is always a cause for celebration. The Wolf Wilder is, in a word, extraordinary (Katherine Applegate)
