Fantasy, love, and courage - Chasing Ravens by Jessica E. Paige

"If you like fantasy and folklore, then I highly recommend Chasing Ravens. I think this is a great book for all ages, not just YA-- I would definitely recommend it for voracious middle-grade readers. Fantasy, adventure, bravery, and a touch of sweet romance make Chasing Ravens a winner in my book." - Goodreads


Orphaned at a young age, 15-year old Anouk’s punishment for being too outspoken is an arranged marriage worse than any she could imagine. Fleeing on horseback, yet without a sense of where to turn, she stumbles upon an idyllic village where she finds safe haven. Could this be home?

Ultimately, it will lead her to confront the very face of death, yet amidst the danger and darkness, she meets a handsome woodsman and finds a glowing blue flower with power beyond her wildest dreams.

Inspired by Russian fairy tales and steeped in ancient folklore, Paige’s novel is ripe with fantasy, love, and courage.

I LOVE this book. Anouk is sweet, strong, independant, and brave. There are a handful of stories like this, which I also love, but Jessica put the time and thought into this book to make it one of the very best of its kind. [...] The book is very descriptive, it gives you perfect vison in your mind of what the surroundings look like, and what the characters are going through. It's a beautiful story! - Goodreads

Oooh! I've been dying to find more books based in Russian legends since reading the Dreaming Anastasia books. Plus, the story of the Romanovs is so interesting with Rasputin gaining so much power over the family.
