Waterstones Says

Evoking ancient superstition and folk myth, the first of Paver’s atmospheric fantasy saga pits an adolescent boy against a malevolent spirit cast in the form of a giant bear. An immersive melding of prehistory and dark magic, Wolf Brother is scintillating world-building of the highest order.

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.

Only one boy can stop it - 12-year-old Torak, who has seen his father murdered by the bear. With his dying breath, Torak's father tells his son of his burden. He must lead the bear to the mountain of the World Spirit and beg that spirit's help to overcome it.

A terrifying quest in a world of wolves, tree spirits and Hidden People, a world in which trusting a friend means risking your life.

Audio edition also available, read by Ian McKellen.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Wolf Brother combines elements of fantasy, prehistoric fiction and facts, to make a brilliant book. This the first in a series of six (and one of the best, too). I would recommend it to any one who likes wolves (essential!), magic and stone age people! - THE GUARDIAN

The story is a rich tale full strong with the themes of survival, magic and folklore. Michelle Paver manages to install the same dreams in the reader's head that she once had herself - the dream to run with wolves in a prehistoric forest. - FANTASY BOOK REVIEW

Wolf Brother, the first of six books in Chronicles of Ancient Darkness, is a terrific read, and I was instantly grabbed by the throat and whooshed along by the power of the writing. - HISTORICAL NOVEL SOCIETY

Rich in detail which brings the past to life and makes the forest background vivid to all readers - LOVEREADING4KIDS

I liked the book because it is a thrilling, packed with a ton of action, and is an adventure you don't usually find in books. Wolf Brother never lets you stop reading, and it keeps a ton of suspense. - TEEN INK subscriber review

Wolf Brother is a book where time passes quickly as the reader is absorbed into a colourful world. And before you know it the book has ended and you find you just have to grab the next book in the series and continue reading. - THE DESK OF KAREN LEE FIELD REVIEW
