"Paver is a master storyteller, whose clear, taut prose overlies complex research. There is magic, but it is natural magic, depending on perception or superstition.... The thrill of this remarkable series is that it makes readers percieve the world differently." (The Times)
a bit rambling in places and lacked the pace and excitement of the first two of the series. the characters are interesting and the expansion of the details of the time and inclusion of new clans was welcome. however, the rather singular setting of the book did get a little tiresome, and there were several moments when I found myself questioning the actions of characters, which was clearly only done to stretch the story out unnecessarily. I hope book 4 is a bit more exciting.
Ian really brings a new life to an already loved story of mine. Michelle's writing thrills and enthrals, with her humanisation of the wolf and the supernatural prehistoric woodland clan laws and rituals. Well worth the buy!
In this, the third book in the series, Torak and Ren must rescue wolf after he is taken by the soul eaters. To do so, Torak must literally place himself in the lion's den. This book is darker than the previous two and the most intense.
