Outcast: Chronicles of Ancient Darkness 4 CD-Audio by Michelle Paver

The dreadful secret that Torak carries with him at the close of SOUL EATER is revealed and he is cast out from the clans. It's his fourteenth summer. He's alone, cut off even from Wolf and Renn. Hunted and on the run he takes refuge in unknown territory - the haunted reedbeds of Lake Axehead, where he is menaced by the Hidden People. Other threats lurk nearby and his battle with the Soul-Eaters is far from over ...As he fights for his life Torak uncovers a deception too awful to contemplate, one that shakes him to the core and shatters his world.

Reviews

'It was a great idea to get Sir Ian McKellen to narrate Michelle Paver's gripping and fascinating CHRONICLES OF ANCIENT DARKNESS... Paver researched the subject deeply but wears her learning lightly, and McKellen has such vocal charisma that he holds you rapt.' - Christina Hardyment, The Times

'Never mind the kids, I've been queueing up for the next instalment of Paver's CHRONICLES OF ANCIENT DARKNESS ... Spine-chillingly scary and utterly riveting.' - Sue Arnold, the Guardian

'Sir Ian McKellen gives an incredibly atmospheric rendition of Michelle Paver's book.' - bFKbooks.com

'Ian McKellen narrates with consummate skill.' - The Times

About the Author

Michelle Paver

Born in Malawi in 1960 to a Belgian mother and a father who ran the tiny 'NYASALAND TIMES', Michelle Paver moved to the UK when she was three. She was brought up in Wimbledon and, following a Biochemistry Degree from Oxford, she became a partner in a big City law firm. She gave up the City to follow her long-held dream of becoming a writer. She is the author of the brilliantly successful children's series, THE CHRONICLES OF ANCIENT DARKNESS, the final book of which won the 2010 Guardian Children’s Fiction Prize.

An Interview with Michelle Paver

Concerning literary influences, I’d name two principal ones: J.R.R. Tolkien, who inspired a lifelong love of myth and Anglo-Saxon and Norse literature, and who also deepened my appreciation for trees and forests; and Anthony Trollope, whose page-turning novels taught me much about storytelling.

They change from time to time, but here are the ones that have lasted. For heroes, it’s Aragorn from The Lord of the Rings and Hector from The Iliad. For villains, it’s Dracula (the Bram Stoker one, of course), and Stavrogin from The Devils.

In the main I did, but my most vivid memory concerns my one bad year. When I was about eleven, a new girl joined the class and took such a dislike to me that she got everyone else to gang up against me. It doesn’t sound too bad, but it was miserable and very lonely to go through. My mother told me to ignore the lot of them, which I did – and after a pretty rough year, the ringleader left, and things drifted back to normal. But I’ve never forgotten it. And it probably helped make me a writer, because for that year, I retreated into my imagination.

I worked as a solicitor in the City for thirteen years: lots of all-nighters and weekends in the office. The challenge made it fun for a while, but that soon palled. I don’t miss it at all.
