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.

On a "normal" person, Polygraphs have a 70%-90% success rate. Now, the problem is that a lot of people aren't "normal". Some people are naturally anxious or have an anxiety disorder, which can mess up the results. Obese people often tend to sweat more, which will give the sensors bad readings.  So, is it a good tool for finding the truth? In certain circumstances, yes. Is it enough to convict someone of a crime? No.  ^^This There are so many variables, it's hard to make sure polygraphs are working to model standards.

wow this topic is rarely spoken, thanks for sharing it!! [s:p/zxl] 8) 8) Thank you for reading! I think as days go by it gets more and more talked about, but I don't think there can ever be enough said, especially about positive strategies. It seems like we tend to dwell on the worst and not the solution sometimes. Not to mention I don't think there's anything inherently bad about these things.

Ok so some things about my depression are like i found out i had it when i was 10. I might of had it before then but Idk. But like is a good thing i joined kw cause that's how my friend on here like figured out that i have depression and basically made me tell my mom and dad. And like also i kinda wanted to die and stuff and then later i kinda wanted to kill my self. And hurt my self. I kinda did a little bit but like not that much. And so like i had to do this weird therapy that didn't work. And then it kept getting worse and stuff and then like i went to the doctor and got some medicine but like they didn't give me any for almost a year probably until i was closer to 12. But the first one they tried made me like wake up sometimes and basically be really anxious like freaking out so much that i thought i might hurt myself or kinda other people or do things like run away. But it kinda helped the depression during the day and helped me to sleep sometimes better but like also i stopped wanting to do anything. So then i got a different one but it made me dizzy as soon as i tried it basically and so like after 3 days maybe then I spotted. But then i had to wait for them to get out of my system. After that i starred like regular therapy where you talk to the therapist. Like people told me it was bad so i really didn't want to go for a long time, but i went and it was kind of fun i guess like i could say anything and he wouldn't like be mad about me saying it or anything like he didn't judge and stuff. So i did that for a while like 2 or 3 months and i was feeling a lot better from that and some off the things we did. But like since my dad got a new job it has different insurance so i have to switch but we're just waiting to see like if i need to right now Thank you so much for sharing? You're really brave to talk about that, and I know that sharing your story is going to help somebody else. Thank you. :)
