And in the final battle against the Soul-Eater, Torak must face the most heart-rending choice of all.

Ghost Hunter: Book 6 Chronicles of Ancient Darkness Press Reviews

'If I could give this series a gold medal, a shiny star and a packet of jelly tots, and Michelle Paver her heart's desire, I would. Not a word disappoints. You're transported into Torak's hunter-gatherer world, a world that existed more than six thousand years ago, and there you stay until the very last page. There's no zeitgeist about it; no fashionable tag, no hooks but the story and the characters and the writing, and they are so much more than enough.' The Bookbag

'For parents and grandparents searching for something to replace Harry Potter, Michelle Paver's Chronicles of Ancient Darkness have been a godsend. Thrilling, beautifully written, strongly characterised and featuring a magical prehistoric world, they have now sold one million copies in this country without any of the advertising and film promotions that other leading children's books have been given - though Ian McKellen, always shrewd, has done the magnificent audiobooks.' - Amanda Craig, The Times

'To have maintained a consistent quality of writing, storytelling and suspense over six books without missing a beat is extraordinary, though children will want only to race to the end.' - Amanda Craig, The Times

'The finale is a climax as intense as Tolkien's fall of Mordor, with demonic dogs, fiendish one-time children, and Soul-Eaters summoned from beyond the grave...Best of all, Paver succeeds in creating a conclusion with no mawkishness when she resolves the relationship between Torak and Renn and, of course, Wolf.' - Christina Hardyment in The Independent

'The treat of the year for me was Ghost Hunter... Meticulously researched, the scholarship is lightly worn.' - Melanie McDonagh, Evening Standard
