Book Review - Wolf Brother

Wolf Brother by Michelle Paver (Orion Children's Books, 2004)

Madeleine, 13, Cockermouth UK

Situated in Britain 6,000 years ago, Wolf Brother and it's five sequels tell the tale of Torak, a twelve -summers outlaw hunted and persecuted by the hideous demon that slaughtered his father.

Born to the wolf clan before his father's mysterious separation from the clan dwellings, Torak, when escaping, succumbs to the territory of the Raven Clan.  There, after being captured, he and Renn, a Raven girl forced before the future of clan mage, seek the demon in order to destroy it.

However, Torak is about to discover that not only is not all of his father's past as innocent and simplistic as it had seemed at the time of his death, but he is not entirely alone - wherever he travels allies are present.  Including wolves.

Swollen with every tradition, sight, sense and passion of the ancient world, Wolf Brother is the first novel in Michelle Paver's internationally acclaimed series, Chronicles of Ancient Darkness.
