Summary

This is the third adventure in The Chronicles of Ancient Darkness, following the fantastic success of Wolf Brother and Spirit Walker.

Torak has survived the summer and his heart-stopping adventure in the Seal Islands. He and Wolf are together again. But their reunion is all too short-lived. As mid winter approaches, Torak learns the worst from the White Fox clan. The Soul-Eaters have snatched Wolf and will sacrifice him. Desperate to rescue him, Torak hatches a perilous plan, one that he must carry out alone. He will find the Soul-Eaters and infiltrate their cult.

Critic reviews

"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)

spine tingling

this book we see the soul eaters take wolf, I was on the edge of my seat. you learn so much about fa and I love that each book is set I a new landscape dreamt up by Michelle Paver. The amount of detail you feel like you standing there with torak and Renn and you forget the book is written for children one of my favourite books series.

soul eater

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.
