This is the third book in a really great set of children's novels. As a school teacher I used a chapter out of the first book in an english lesson for 10-11 year olds as an example of how to write a character description using indirect techniques, instead of just a list of characteristics. Michelle Paver is a class author, she is prolific for sure, but this does not detract from the quality of her writing. I found her work to be far more than just an example of good writing techniques to share with my class. I read the whole series, as did many of my students, having been hooked by the first chapter of the first book.
I would highly recommend this book (together with the rest of the series) to any child or parent who desires to read enjoyable and page turning writing of a very high literary standard.
