The Lovereading Comment:

Torak’s battle against the soul eaters continues in this, the 5th novel from the exceptional Chronicles of Ancient Darkness. Each and every page will have the reader on a knife edge of life and death, fear and terror alongside the brave and determined Torak as he seeks revenge for the death of one of his closest friends. Authenticity and sharp attention to detail are the hallmarks of Paver’s writing and this is achieved through her incredibly detailed research, which for this book involved a trip to eastern Poland where she gained inspiration for various parts of the deep forest as well as for some of the unusual animals you’ll meet in the novel.  If you’ve not been introduced to this series yet then we do urge you to dip in for it has everything a reader could wish for whether they’re 9 or 109.

Oathbreaker: Book 5 Chronicles of Ancient Darkness Press Reviews

‘Paver is a master storyteller, whose clear, taut prose overlies complex research. There is magic, but it Is natural magic, depending on perception and superstition… the thrill of this remarkable series is that it makes readers perceive the world differently.’ Amanda Craig, The Times
