Rating: 5


Spirit Walker is the second book about the young Wolf Clan hunter Torak. He lives in a world that's 6,000 years before the invention of the Xbox 360 and is full of spirits, strange magic, prophecies and ancient mysteries. All he wants is to grow up and be a hunter like his father was, when suddenly a mysterious sickness starts driving the clans mad and killing people! Here's the story about Torak's new adventures.


Ancient Adventure

Torak's adventure begins with him living with the Raven Clan. He learns from their wise chief, Fin-Kedinn, hunts with the young girl Renn and has a wolf as a pack-brother. Suddenly a horrible sickness starts killing his Raven Clan friends and spreading to the other clans! Torak must set out on his own and journey from the deepest forest to the depths of the ocean to find a cure and battle the Soul-Eaters who want him dead - or do they? Tarok uncovers secrets, betrayal and true friendship in his adventures.


Friendly Spirits

Tarok has an amazing adventure in this book. It'll grab you keep you flipping pages as you read about his journeys, the clans he meets, how he discovers the source of the sickness and more about himself and his strange powers. The incredible detail about life in the forest and how Tarok and the other people respect the world they live in is amazing too - it's so different from how we live!


The Bottom Line

Don't read this book while you're camping! Some parts of it are totally freaky and can leave you really nervous about the things that go bump in the night. Unless you dig getting creeped out, read this book in the daytime!Michelle Paver's first Chronicles of Ancient Darkness novel, Wolf Brother, was excellent and Spirit Walker is an incredible read too! It's a bit scary for younger readers, but the freak-out level is perfect for most peeps. If you like adventure stories, definitely check this book out.

Am I really... The popular girl? No, I'm not My life is a whirl Am I really... The one who can make you smile? Who can make you laugh? I can't go the extra mile... You think my life is meant for something You tell me I have worth I just can't believe you I want to leave the earth I just can't live my life I just can't be myself I just can't show the world When I feel I'm on a shelf My world is a blur With these tears in my eyes I want to be known But I don't think I'm wise I want to be loved I want to be known I want to be free But... Am I Really?

It's completely, 100% unable to be proven and completely incorrect. Wherever you got this from, they are idiotic. Like @1PhanTrash  said, I as well respect your opinion.
