Publisher: Orion Children's Books

Thousands of years ago, the land is a dark forest, peopled by hunter-gatherers who know every tree and herb. Then a dark, malevolent force conjures a demon contained in the body of a ferocious bear that will slay everything it sees - a demon determined to destroy the world.

Twelve-year-old Torak sees his father murdered by the bear. With his dying breath, Torak's father tells his son that he is the only one who can stop it - he must lead the bear to the mountain of the World Spirit, and beg the spirit's help to overcome it. But Torak does not want to be a hero - frightened and alone, he must set out on a terrifying quest which will see him tricked and betrayed and every turn. Thankfully he has the company of a young wolf cub, whom he seems to understand better than any human.

The first book in Michelle Paver's hugely popular Chronicles of Ancient Darkness series, Wolf Brother is a gripping and original adventure story. Magical, imaginative, vividly-told and rich in detail, young readers will find Torak's tale completely engrossing.
