More About the Author

Born in Malawi to a Belgian mother and a father who ran the tiny 'Nyasaland Times', Michelle Paver moved to the UK when she was three. She was brought up in Wimbledon and, following a Biochemistry Degree from Oxford, she became a partner in a big City law firm. She gave up the City to follow her long-held dream of becoming a writer. Successfully published as an adult author, the Chronicles of Ancient Darkness were her first books for children and her brilliant new series, Gods and Warriors, is just beginning . . .

Format: Hardcover
Another unmissable episode in the story of Torak and his "pack"! I agree with the other reviewer that the stories are getting darker with each book, as Torak goes through his adolescent rites of passage, and much sadder too, in line with the overall series name - "Chronicles of Ancient Darkness". I can imagine my youngest son, who is 9 and yet to read "Oathbreaker"(ha! ha! I got first dibs!!), becoming quite upset, as the plot for this story not only introduces us to new characters, but says goodbye to someone very important to Torak. Michelle Paver also reveals more of Torak's history and that of his parents, with some heartbreaking revelations. It is exciting and full of tension as Torak faces yet another threat to his and his friends security, and reluctantly acknowledges his destiny. He is also growing up, and has to learn to control all the raging emotions within him. Renn too is maturing and Torak feels a frisson of attraction between them as their bonds of friendship deepen. I can't wait for the final installment, although I will freely admit that I will be very sad to say goodbye to these characters. Great stuff!

When I first read Wolf Brother, I thought WOW, this is seriously good. I've collected and read all the books since, and I'm over halfway through Oathbreaker. And it's brilliant.

I'll try not to give out too many spoilers, but this is one of the darkest installments so far, with Torak desperate for revenge after one of his closest friends is murdered by the Soul-Eaters. There's no hanging around in the story, already there's a huge amount of action before you've even finished the second chapter. The Deep Forest is also beautifully described in great detail, plus the character's emotions have become far more complex and it's easier to feel strong sympathy or hate towards them.

If you liked the first four, you'll definitely love this one. It has to be the must-have book of 2008.

Yes, the basic plot is similar to the other stories - Torak gets in trouble & Renn helps him, they track another Soul Hunter. But the "filling" is what I enjoy - so five stars definitely. This is a very unusual genre for children's books and I don't think anyone has used this "ancient man" theme since "Stigg of the Dump". And the anthropological study of ancient human culture is excellent. Also, Torak and Renn are excellent survivors, living off of natures resources. Fans of "Ray Meers" might enjoy this also. I like the style of writing, as the narration switches between wolf and his human counterparts. I like the way that wolf says "there is no 'wolf word' " for the feeling that Torak has, - as Torak wants 'revenge', emphasising the difference between man and wolf. A good book for sophisticated readers of the 9-12 age group. For adults like me who also enjoy these stories, they might like to read some of the academic source books about shamanism by Mircea Eliade Rites and Symbols of Initiation: The Mysteries of Birth and Rebirth, Myth of the Eternal Return: Cosmos and History (Works of Mircea Eliade).

Oath Breaker: Chronicles of Ancient Darkness book 5
I was delighted to get this book, I've got all the others and was desperate to find out how Torak, Renn and Wolf were getting on. Michelle's work does not disappoint, I couldn't put it down, it tugged at the heartstrings too. You find out a little more about the background story too which is very interesting.I now have to curb my impatience for Book 6 due in the Autumn!
Great service from Amazon, keep up the good work.

This Michelle Paver series are an absolute marvel. You want to rush with the plot to the end but you are loath to miss any detail! The writing is of a very high quality, not the ordinary mush of the Dan Brown's standard. The research of the ancient tribal cultures brings real life to a picture of a world only previously glimpsed by archeologists and antropologists, and then turns it into both agent and background of an adventure where fully developed characters and a magic plot are woven. I am 63 years old and my son is already 30, and we not only read and enjoyed them all but are also keeping the whole collection for the future children we are hoping he might have someday!

Bought these books to read with the children and we all love them! This is the best book of the series so far! We all cried, laughed and loved the ending. Excellent all the way through and can't wait to read the last book. We love Wolf and Torak's relationship and i'm sure we have learned to communicate with our dog better as the description of their interactions are so good.

Format: Hardcover
The penultimate book in the series is fraught with danger and adventure as we continue with Torak's destiny together with Renn and Wolf. I could not put the book down until I finished it; Paver's words transport you back to Torak's time and grip you until the end. A beautifully written book which would be impossible to not read!
