Summary

This is the third adventure in The Chronicles of Ancient Darkness, following the fantastic success of Wolf Brother and Spirit Walker.

Torak has survived the summer and his heart-stopping adventure in the Seal Islands. He and Wolf are together again. But their reunion is all too short-lived. As mid winter approaches, Torak learns the worst from the White Fox clan. The Soul-Eaters have snatched Wolf and will sacrifice him. Desperate to rescue him, Torak hatches a perilous plan, one that he must carry out alone. He will find the Soul-Eaters and infiltrate their cult.

Critic reviews

"Paver is a master storyteller, whose clear, taut prose overlies complex research. There is magic, but it is natural magic, depending on perception or superstition.... The thrill of this remarkable series is that it makes readers percieve the world differently." ( The Times)

Still awesome!

It's always amazing when an author can produce a series where every book is as good as the last! Ian McKellen does another stunning performance and the story continues to develop and expand Torak's world.

Torak's story continues

4/5

This third installment of The Chronicles of Ancient Darkness lives up to its title as the journey of Total takes a darker turn. The arctic setting was beautiful described and made me feel like I was there in that world of endless white. I particularly enjoyed the descriptions of the ice (polar) bear.

Torak had grown and begun delving into spirit walking. The way Paver weaves these experiences is wonderful and the continuing idea of different souls works amazingly with this. Renn too has changed and grows into her own and I'm definitely looking forward to reading how she develops her magecraft.

Great Book

This story is amazingly told and amazingly read. It is really lovely and and the characters you meet in the different books all have their own personalities. It always leaves you hanging onto every word. Great excitement, and very gripping. Overall a fantastic novel. (Elsa and Kit. Age 10 and 7
