Chronicles of Ancient Darkness – Wolf Brother


Childrens Book Publisher
  • Thousands of years ago, the land is one dark forest. Its people are hunter-gatherers. They know every tree and herb and they know how to survive in a time of enchantment and powerful magic. Until an ambitious and malevolent force conjures a demon: a demon so evil that it can be contained only in the body of a ferocious bear that will slay everything it sees, a demon determined to destroy the world.

I thought this book is very good and I recommend this book to more people my age to have the same experience I had. My favourite character would probably have to be wolf with his adorable face and cute eyes. I chose this book because my friend Lottie was reading it so I asked if I could read it. I suppose this book was fiction because it dose not sound real. My favourite part of this book would be when Torak got stuck in the ice river it was scared but exiting.

A Very Exciting Story

I really enjoyed this story. It is exciting and full of amazing adventures. It is set in the olden days - 6,000 years ago - and is about a boy and a wolf cub. I liked all the adventures they have to go on to find the Mountain of the World Spirit and all the problems they have to solve on the way - like finding food, making fire and escaping from the demon bear! It is a very exciting story. I also really liked the way you get to see things from the point of view of the wolf cub and not just the boy. The really good thing is that there are 6 of these books in the series (Chronicles of Ancient Darkness) so after this one you still have 5 left to go! I am on number 3 at the moment (Soul Eater) and have really liked all of them so far.

A boy. A wolf. A legend for all time. This book is a wonderful pre-historic fantasy adventure tale set 6,000 years ago. It is essentially about a boy, Torak and a wolf cub, who becomes his guide and companion on his journey to fulfil his father's dying wishes. It is fast-paced and action-packed. It is beautifully written, with an incredible level of detail and a great use of imagery. I was worried that it might be a bit too graphic for my 8 year old son, but he absolutely loved it! It's not for the faint-hearted or sensitive, but it is a real adventure story - and one that captures the imagination from the very first page. Definitely worth a read.

Full of Adventure

This book is full of adventure and it is emotional. You learn about living in the wild and meet lots of characters. There is a mystery to solve and a mission for Torak to complete, finding friends along the way.

This is a story that grabs the reader from the start and hauls them in, pulling them into its rich world full of myths, survival and magic. The story is set in prehistoric times about a boy, Torak and a wolf who becomes his companion. Together they have a terrifying task to complete in a world of demons, dark magic and folklore. This is a great fantasy adventure tale and there are 5 more books in the series.

One of my Favourite Books

Wolf brother is one of my favourite books. It is set thousands of years ago at a time when magic had no boundaries and trusting your friend may mean trusting them with your life. A demon bear is terrorising the forest clans and it is up to Torak, Renn (a girl from the Raven Clan) and Wolf, to stop it. Their journey takes them ever further into unknown lands, ever closer to their fate.

Wolf brother has been one of my favourite books that I have read to my children. I think the in depth research that Michele Paver has carried out creates a really strong foundation and frame for her world. Attention to the detail of how life may have been lived 6 thousand years ago, is woven seamlessly into a fast paced and exciting narrative. The interlinking of magical thinking, the natural world and how life could have been experienced by early men is brilliantly done. The characters are well drawn, the female lead is strong, and I was able to really care both about their individual paths and about the relationships between them. There is complexity and depth to this book, which is done with a subtle approach. It can be dark at times and certainly the following books (there are 6 in the series) get progressively darker, so they are not for young children.
