Praise for Viper's Daughter:
'There's no better time-travelling guide than Michelle Paver ... with its action, clever character development and glorious descriptions of nature 6,000 years ago.' - The Times on Viper's Daughter
'Meticulously researched, atmospheric [...] and relentless, this instalment deservedly introduces Paver to a new generation of readers.' - The Guardian
'What rich, dazzling, immersive storytelling. The landscape was so bright the light left me blinking, the details as sharp as a carved bone needle. To journey with Torak and Renn, and Wolf, whose ears were so keen he could hear the clouds pass, was an absolute privilege. The best book I have read this year by a country mile.' - Hilary McKay, author of The Skylarks' War
'It was such a thrill to revisit Torak, Wolf and Renn's world. I was enthralled from start to finish. Viper's Daughter is sharp, striking, and loaded with the wisdom of the deep past. I am in awe of Paver's accomplishment.' - Sophie Anderson, author of The House with Chicken Legs
'Michelle Paver is a writer of extraordinary talent. I was enthralled, from start to finish. The storytelling was every bit as vivid and immersive as I remembered ... Michelle is in a league of her own with this series and what luck for us all that she hasn't finished with Torak, Renn and Wolf's world yet.' - Abi Elphinstone, author of Rumblestar
'Rich with descriptions of the natural world and imaginery kingdoms, a must for all Wolf Brother fans.' - Daily Mail
