Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Derrik Parker
Ghost Hunter: Chronicles of Ancient Darkness comes to the most compelling climax of the series when Torak must face the evil forces of the Eagle Clan Mage, Eostra. Along with the Raven Clan Mage, Renn, and his pack brother Wolf, Torak must defeat Eostra before she gains immortality. This book is so well written that you are pulled back six thousand years into an ancient world. Once you start, you can't stop reading until this heroic trio finishes the final fight! Reviewer: Derrik Parker, Teen Reviewer
VOYA - Nancy Wallace
A strange sleeping sickness decimates the woodland clans. Moths gather in odd clusters, their dust virulent and deadly. Torak, tormented by visions of his dead father, recognizes Eostra's work and sets out to find the Eagle Owl Mage in the mountains. He watches a huge Eagle Owl land near Darkfur and her pups but arrives too late to save them—Darkfur falls off a cliff, into the raging river below. One pup, Shadow, is killed, and the Owl flies off with Pebble in its talons. Wolf is inconsolable. Torak's destiny promises death at Eostra's hands. He goes willingly to meet it, but Renn refuses to let him go alone. Old friends appear to ease their journey. In a terrifying battle in the depths of the mountains, Torak destroys Eostra but sacrifices himself. Only Wolf's undying devotion coaxes Torak's spirit back to his body and brings him back to life. Paver has produced this six-book series without a misstep. The primitive setting imparts timelessness to both characters and plot, ensuring their continued popularity. Her impeccable research is evident in every detail and lends unusual authenticity to her work. Consistent writing, nonstop action, and endearing characters set these books apart. Although a great many readers will be sad to see this series end, the bittersweet conclusion is both satisfying and realistic: Wolf finds Darkfur and Pebble injured but alive, and Renn forsakes her own clan to leave with Torak. This innovative series has earned a place in every school and public library. Reviewer: Nancy Wallace
Children's Literature - Shirley Nelson
In the sixth and last volume of the "Chronicles of Ancient Darkness," fifteen-year-old Torak hears his father's spirit calling him to come to the Mountains. Or is it the Evil Owl Mage Eostra luring Torak away so that she can catch his soul? Is the summons somehow related to the gray moths and strange sickness afflicting the surrounding clans? Whatever the source of the call, Torak knows he must make the difficult journey to save himself and the Raven Clan. Against advice from his friend Renn and the Raven Leader, Torak sets off alone, even leaving his pack brother Wolf behind. But he is forced to intervene when Wolf, his mate, and pups are attacked. Torak also must save Renn who is caught in the ice storm when she follows him. The three friends embark on a treacherous journey through the Fells to the Mountain of Ghosts and a thrilling resolution to the series. The author's note describes the extensive research required to make the lives of those who lived six thousand years ago real for today's readers. Reviewer: Shirley Nelson

Meet the Author

Michelle Paver was born in central Africa, but moved to England as a child. After earning a degree in biochemistry from Oxford University, she became a partner in a London law firm, but eventually gave that up to write full-time.

Chronicles of Ancient Darkness arises from her lifelong passions for animals, anthropology, and the distant past. It was also inspired by her travels in Norway, Lapland, Iceland, and the Carpathian Mountains—and particularly by an encounter with a large bear in a remote valley in Southern California.

    A Definite Read! - But not unless you've read the rest.

    This series is absolutely one of the best series I have ever read. The world is 6000 years in the past, but draws you in and makes it feel like it's real the second you open the book. This conclusion was great. But I can only hope that with enough prompting that Michelle Paver will write at least one more, thats all I ask, I would read this series if it went up to 20+ books, it is that good!

    This whole series is amazing and I think it's a shame that more

    This whole series is amazing and I think it's a shame that more people haven't found out about them. It really feels like you are in the time period thousands of years ago. I love all the characters, especially Wolf. It is a beautifully written series full of action, adventure, friendship, and even some very tame romance between Torak and Renn.
