Product description

The first episode in Michelle Paver’s riveting saga of suspense and primal magic, set 6000 years ago. In Torak’s shadow-world of snow, forests, bears and shamanic rituals, life is harsh and fragile. When his father, Fa the mage, dies of mortal wounds from a spirit-possessed bear, his dying words bind Torak to a quest. He must seek and find the mythical Mountain of the World Spirit, who will give him the strength to defeat the demonic beast… From extensive research about how the people of Northern Europe may have lived thousands of years ago, Michelle Paver has fashioned a truly remarkable portrait of life and belief in a dawning world.

    I guess this book isn’t to bad. Although it does drag along a bit. I’ve almost finished it and it still hasn’t got to main part. Would not recomend because it might waste your time. but good descriptions and you have a clear picture in your head on what everything looks like. :\

    I thought this book was a bit boring, there was too much detail.

    I think this book waffled on a bit so I couldn’t really enjoy it.

    This is probably one of the most awsome books ever if I haden´t read it wolves might not be my favourite animal (pleas note that wolves are beyond awsome , just like this book!!)

    THIS has to be one of my ALL time favourite books! I haven’t read it for a year now and when i saw it I still remembering my heart beating when I was reading it and wanting to scream at the characters to do I wanted them to. It made me laugh, and cry and jump with joy. I’ve already three times, but i really need to read it again! Read this if you kove adventure and fantasy, romance and just good old heart ache!

    This book is great!!!! I found the story quite scary and the reason why I couldn’t put it down is because it’s like there is a cliff hanger going all the way through I also like the way they made the story fit into the tribal style. They also didn’t make too fictiony (I know it isn’t a proper word) also is it a series?

    i am reading this book at the moment and am on page 25. but i am confused whether the boy is a wolf a human or half and half.

  17. rikeetikee
    on 20 June 2008

    Oh, wow. Wolf Brother has to be one of the most brilliant books I have ever read. It’s gripping at the beginning and shocking throughout the story. If you love a good action-ish sort of book, this book is for you!
