...the themes of friendship and sacrifice are strong, and the descriptions of hunting, tracking and living in the world of six thousand years ago are as vivid and as interesting as ever... I'm going to miss the Forest and the clans now that the series is over. The Chronicles of Ancient Darkness are aimed at younger teens but I still love them aged nearly-sixteen, and I don't think I'll outgrow them any times soon. (Kitty (young reviewer) SCOTTISHBOOKTRUST.COM)
The final part of the brilliant Chronicles of Ancient Darkness... The saga of dark versus light is told with Paver's rigourous pace and brilliant attention to the detail of the Torak's world (Fiona Noble THE BOOKSELLER)
A literary treat for any young reader looking for something slightly different from the mass of children's releases (HACKWRITERS.COM)
These books are wonderful examples of how children's books at their best are motored by brilliant, seamless plotting. There is no waste- everything is taut, clean, efficient... There is a beautifully realised sense of an organic culture depicted in these books, and good and evil are measured in relation to how much these characters respect their environment (David Mohan DAVID MOHAN WORDPRESS BLOG)
A boy. A wolf. A legend for all time. Dazzling entertainment, seamless storytelling - Torak must defy demons and tokoroths and make a shattering choice in this epic, prize-winning finale to his quest to vanquish the terrifying Soul-Eaters.See all Product Description

There is a theme of loss running through this book (loss of innocence, security, loved ones, hope) so if your children are very young, or quite emotional, they might get upset, particularly in the first half of the story. To balance this, however, Michelle Paver brings to the story a great sense of inclusion and cameraderie, and a hopeful reassurance that friends can sometimes be found in unlikely places.
As usual, the detail and visual imagery she creates is fabulous and it is so real, you can almost smell the world she describes - like the scent of the cold, night air on someone who comes in from outside in the winter.
I am going to miss Torak, Renn, and the rest, but I will miss Wolf, with his simple touching language and fierce loyalty the most. Thankyou Miss Paver, and I am looking forward to reading your next books with my children.
This entire series has been a triumph. Each book is filled with such beautiful detail that shows how passionate about this subject Michelle Paver is. Her research has been extensive and shows through with her detailed knowledge of each animal, its habits, habitats and reactions; each environment, the dangers, the differing living styles and what it takes to survive in each extreme; finally the system of beliefs and traditions which govern the Clans. In `Wolf Brother' Torak, having never lived among a Clan is ignorant of many of these things, so as he learns each new environment or belief, so too does the reader. Torak imparts his greatest skills of Tracking (understanding how each animal will react & how to read the signs of their passing throughout the forest) to the reader by making you feel as if you are right within the story.
All 6 of the books contain the wild intense beauty of nature.
The final book feels like it brings us full circle, back to the mountains again, for Torak to face his greatest fear and to see whether he can master it to save the Forest, the Deep Forest, the Mountains & the Sea from the true Eater of Souls.
So, I think i would recommend this for young teenagers instead
I loved it (ordered and finished the series for myself)
