Overview

On the unforgiving Arctic Ice . . .

United once again, Toklo, Lusa, Kallik, and Ujurak continue across the ice. Conditions are harsh and especially treacherous for the black bear and grizzly bears who are not used to the brutal cold, never-ending snow, and limited food. But the bears are certain now that they're on the right course, and with the stars still guiding them, they push forward.

When they reach land at last, the group is overjoyed, but something is not right. The bears who live here are ill. What's wrong with them? What can the foursome do to help? Is aiding these strangers the ultimate goal of their quest? Ujurak just might hold the key to their mission in his paws, yet it's Lusa the new bears are especially interested in.

Three young cubs, each from different backgrounds, and their mysterious shape-shifting companion have grown up together in their long and dangerous journey to save the wild. Now, when their task appears more difficult than ever, the bears must make a critical decision . . . and for one bear the path ends here.

Editorial Reviews

In the final installment of Spirit Seekers, the bears leave the Last Great Wilderness and travel beyond, towards the even more desolate and dangerous Arctic. The much anticipated conclusion to a series by one of the most popular names in children's books. Ages nine thru 12.

ALA Booklist
“These stories will be welcomed by the Warriors series’ many fans.”
Children's Literature - Heather Welsh
Exhausted and starving, Ujurak and his bear friends continue to follow the spirits in the sky over the "Endless Ice." They begin to lose hope when the spirits seem to abandon them on this leg of their quest to find a home of their own. The belief that they must be near the end of their journey is all that is keeping them moving forward. Along the way, the bears face killer orcas, poisonous food, a hostile group of rival polar bears, and humans taking over their lands. Ujurak begins to realize that he must work with other animals and humans alike if they are to save the wild and make it to the end of their voyage. The pack must also say a bittersweet goodbye to one of its own. If readers are not familiar with any of the previous books in the "Seekers" series, they may have a difficult time figuring out who these characters are and why they are on their journey. There is very little back story to bring new readers up to speed. The story also does not explain why Ujurak is the only character that can shape change, or how a brown, black, grizzly, and polar bear end up together in the Arctic. Some pictures of characters, or character profiles, might help new readers differentiate between the characters, but there is only one small illustration beside each new chapter heading. The book itself is appropriate for fifth grade and up, but the vocabulary is not so advanced that a fourth grader would not be able to understand it. Younger readers may be disturbed by some of the fight scenes, however. Number six in the "Seekers" series. Reviewer: Heather Welsh
