We held our breath and waited to see if this book could match the high standards of those which preceded it. It was worth the wait, and yes it does come up to standard! As beautifully crafted as before, and impeccably read by Ian McKellen, this is an extremely fitting conclusion to the series.
Torak, Renn, & Wolf find themselves in terrible danger from the remaining Soul-Eater. his tokoroths and the deep magic which the Eagle Owl mage commands. All the clans are threatened, and Torak finds himself fearful to even enter his beloved forest. Dark Fur and Pebble too play their parts and in the end all must make a decision, for as Wolf knows 'No wolf can belong to two packs'.
The final outcome is not without sacrifice on all sides but provides perhaps the most rewarding conclusion to what has become a truly classical piece of writing. The six books stand shoulder to shoulder with other recent classics, including Philip Pullman's much lauded 'Dark Materials' trilogy.
Generations of children will read this series, or listen to Ian's spectacular readings and will be drawn into Torak's world.For this is a world which we can believe, smell and touch, and serves as a reminder to all of us that if we kill our forests, mountains, rivers and lakes, our world too will be consumed by demons.
Thank-you Michelle. Your switch from lawyer to story teller was well worth it!

The whole family enjoyed this series. Brilliantly read by Gandalf. Strong characters. Great plots. Lots of excitement and action with loads of twists and turns along the way. We particularly liked the way all elements in the stories come together - the landscape, the people and, of course, the wonderful cast of animal characters, like wolf and the ravens.
I have enjoyed following this series. Wonderful story and wonderfully presented. Couldn't stop listening. Thanks
What a wonderful series of books by Michelle Paver, and a wonderful series of performances by Sir Ian McKellen.
