"The story grips you like a wolf's jaws and won't let go." (Saturday Times)
"Another gripping, taut adventure in the ancient world." (The Herald)
Now I enjoyed the first book in this series, it was well written, well read and engaging. It did however feel a bit predictable, something that this book makes up for. It keeps the revelations coming right up to the end and while the plot progression is slower I think the story benefits from this, especially as you see relationships forming and breaking.
If you liked the first book I'd definately give this one a read.
This is the second book in the series. In this story, Torak comes into contact with the first of the Soul Eaters, an evil group of rennagades thirsty for power and domination over all and whom it is Torak's destiny to destroy. We're also introduced to Bale, a relation of Torak's and a key figure in the series. Michelle Paver moves away from her forest setting of Wolf Brother and explores the world of the sea clans. She does so with her usual skill for description. This is a more than worthy sequel to Wolf Brother.
What isn't there to love with this immaculately performed, superbly written audio book. Although intended for younger readers, this book is of a standard which people of all ages can appreciate.
The second book, and I must say even better than the first.
When you first look at the title of the book I think that everyone says to themselves, " Demons ", well in a way yes, but not how we expect it...
In this thrilling adventure Wolf, Torak and Ren, find themselves thrown into a unexpected journey, one that will take them to new places, meet new friends and enemies.
In summary, the name " Spirit Walker " is a truly fitting title to this book, and in this new world that Torak has entered nothing is as it seems...
I recommend this book to all users and hope that they enjoy it as much as I did.
A book that has a 5 star rating from so many other customers says it all. As with book one, the story continues in a thrilling roller-coaster ride from start to finish. The reading is utterly wonderful from Sir Ian. Don't hesitate to get this if you've heard book one.
