Book 7 Chronicles of Ancient Darkness
This seventh book in Michelle Paver’s awe-inspiring Chronicles of Ancient Darkness series that began with Wolf Brother is a triumph of storytelling that myth-loving readers will wolf down (pun entirely intended). The sense of adventure and human spirit is exhilarating, and Paver’s passion for nature, for wildlife, for the world’s wondrous wilds is an immersive joy.
Torak and Renn have been in the Forest with their Wolf Brother for two summers when Renn leaves him without word. Though realising that “she would have had to deceive Torak for days into order to prepare for her journey”, accomplished tracker Torak does what he must, and what he does best: he and Wolf embark on a quest to the Edge of the World beyond the Far North to find their friend. Alongside dealing with the ominous threat of ice bears and the “beyond good and evil” Sea Mother, Torak is desperate to discover what drove Renn to this place. The sense of demonic danger is powerfully palpable, the writing rich, yet exquisitely sparse and smoothly readable, and the entirety of this enthralling adventure is laced with an uplifting sense of camaraderie, love and legend.
I have read every book in the Wolf Brother series and the Gods and Warriors. I can say that every single one of them was amazing and so is this book. It is a thrilling journey of Torak trying to find Renn. They go through troubles, but of course, Torak always has his pack-brother Wolf.
This book is called Viper’s Daughter. I have read every book in the Wolf Brother series and the Gods and Warriors. I can say that every single one of them was amazing and so is this book. It is a thrilling journey of Torak trying to find Renn and then they go to the North because of a mage’s vision. They go through troubles, but of course, Torak always has his pack-brother Wolf. Ever since his dad died he has been friends with this wolf from the Wolf Clan.
The Wolf Brother books are amazing masterpieces and fill you up with all types of emotions such as laughter, happiness, sadness and you even find yourself feeling sorry for the characters. You are always happy and satisfied that you read them.
I could imagine myself there.
I like Wolf and how he described things like the sea or fire or the arrow stuck in his flank - a flying claw!. I like the description of the different camps in the Forest, the Narwals camp and the description of the ice on the mountain.
