Author: Michelle Paver

Wolf Brother is the first book in Michelle Paver's new series, Chronicles of Ancient Darkness. The series is set 6,000 years ago and focuses on the story of Torak, a young member of the Wolf Clan who suddenly must fend for himself when his father is killed by a demon bear. Read on to find out if this is the book for you!


Destiny Calls

Just before Torak's dad, Fa, is killed by a giant demon bear, Fa makes Torak promise to find the Mountain of the World Spirit. Only this will help to save the rest of mankind. Torak is confused by Fa's request, but promises he will find the Mountain or die trying.


New Friends, New Enemies

Alone in the world, Torak begins his journey towards the Mountain of the World Spirit. Along the way a young wolf cub whose family has been killed in [kwlink]a flood[/kwlink] befriends Torak. Soon Torak realizes that he is able to speak to the young wolf and believes the cub to be his Guide for his journey. Wolf and Torak are doing well until a group from the Raven Clan captures them both and accuses Torak of stealing their buck. The Clan soon come to believe that Torak is The Listener - the one who is destined to destroy the demon bear.


Danger Ahead

Torak has never heard of The Prophecy of The Listener, but the more he hears of it, the more he believes that they are right - he is The Listener and only he can help to save the world. But, he cannot let the Clan leaders decide what to do with him so he escapes, with the help of a young Raven Clan girl named Renn. Now the real mission begins.


The Bottom Line

Wolf Brother is a magical tale that pulls you back to a time when there were no TVs, no internet, not even conventional medicine that we all rely on today. Torak must make his way to the Mountain without a compass, which means he must rely only on what he has been taught about tracking. He must find all his own food, make his own fire and tend to his wounds with medicinal herbs found within the forest. Wolf Brother is a tale that is inspiring and entertaining. You'll be eagerly awaiting the next book in the series once you're done.


Wolf Brother Rating: 5

    Heya! It's a real story... So read it carefully. IT'S 'BOUT GHOSTS!!!! Once a man went to Goa, India as a tourist. He booked a room in a hotel. The hotel manager told him that the next room to the one which he had booked was creepy. He warned him not to ever peek into the room through the keyhole or by any other means. It's a common human nature that we humans tend to do what we are told not to do. So, the man could not resist seeing into the room. He went to his room and slept. He woke up after about 2 hours and went to that creepy room! He peeped into the room through the keyhole. He could see nothing but a bed and a sofa set and all those common household items. He went away. The next day he again peeped though the keyhole. This time he could see a woman wrapped up in a white sari leaning on the bed with her face hidden. He could hear her crying. He went away cuz he was scared. The next day we again went to peep into the room. This time he could see no woman crying. Suddenly someone tapped at his shoulder from behind. He turned back to see who it was but there was no one. He again peeped through the keyhole. This time all he could see was red. He could see nothing but the color ###. ## was just red. He could not understand anything and went away. He went to the hotel manager and asked him what the reason behind it was. The manager told him that once a couple had last booked that room. The woman died during their stay at the hotel and the man just went away. Since then the woman had been there haunting anyone who dares to enter the room. The manager added that the woman's spirit had red eyes! NOW DO YOU UNDERSTAND?!!!!! It was the spirit's eyes!!! The man could see her red eyes in the keyhole!!!!! The spirit was looking at him but he did not notice!!! WOAH!!!
