Sophie Anderson - Author of The House with Chicken Legs



Viper's Daughter by Michelle Paver

A boy. A wolf. The legend lives on.

Viper's Daughter is the seventh book in the award-winning series that began with Wolf Brother, selling over 3 million copies in 36 territories. Like them it can be read as a standalone story. For two summers Torak and Renn have been living in the Forest with their faithful pack-brother, Wolf.

But their happiness is shattered when Renn realizes Torak is in danger - and she's the threat. When she mysteriously disappears, Torak and Wolf brave the Far North to find her. At the mercy of the Sea Mother and haunted by ravenous ice bears, their quest leads them to the Edge of the World.

There they must face an enemy more evil than any they've encountered. Viper's Daughter plunges you back into the Stone-Age world of Torak, Renn and Wolf: a world of demons, Hidden People and exhilarating adventure which has entranced millions of readers. 

Meet the author - Michelle Paver

Born in Malawi to a Belgian mother and a father who ran the tiny 'Nyasaland Times', Michelle moved to the UK when she was three. She was brought up in Wimbledon and, following a Biochemistry Degree from Oxford University, she became a partner in a big City law firm. She gave up the City to follow her long-held dream of becoming a writer.

Successfully published as an adult author, the Chronicles of Ancient Darkness ("Wolf Brother") were her first books for younger readers, followed by her brilliant 5-part series set in the bronze age, Gods and Warriors.

On the adult side, her first ghost story, Dark Matter, was a UK bestseller and won massive praise from reviewers and readers, as did her second ghost story, THIN AIR.

Reviews for Michelle's gothic ghost story Wakenhyrst have been stellar - "Her finest novel yet" says The Times... ""What a story it is", says The Observer - "Wakenhyrst is brilliant, spanning Fen devils, mystics and the lot of women in Edwardian England."

Most recently, Michelle has announced that her Wold Brother series will continue - to the delight of fans everywhere.
