Chronicles of Ancient Darkness: Spirit Walker : Book 2 Paperback
Part of the Chronicles of Ancient Darkness series
Thousands of years ago an orphan boy and his wolf cub companion challenge a demon bear that threatens to destroy their world forever. With the help of the World Spirit, Torak destroys the bear, but his beloved Wolf is lost in the ensuing avalanche. And Torak's quest is far from over. A strange, creeping sickness, silent and deadly, is threatening the Ravens.
Word arrives that the Seal Clan have the cure and Torak must face a lonely journey to find it.
On the Seal's Island he stumbles into a world utterly unlike his own. Here life moves to the rhythms of the sea, the Seals build shelters from whale bones and skim the waves in fast, beautiful kayaks. And here Torak is welcomed by the kindly Seal Mage, Teneris, and kinsman, Bale.
But all is not as it seems - Torak must keep his wits about him to judge who might be friend or foe.
As in 'Wolf Brother' Michelle Paver's sheer passion for her story set in a world of myth and natural magic, shines through in this skilfully woven, exciting and brilliantly satisfying second instalment of the Chronicles of Ancient Darkness.

Review by Shelbycat
Torak is settling into his new life as part of a human tribe, however he doesn't get long to savour this new world before he is called upon to fight the evil that haunts him. We find out more about Torak's past through information that various characters both old and new are able to impart to him. We also discover what Toraks mission in life is to be. I really enjoyed this second installment of the Chronicles of Ancient Darkness and i can't wait to get my hands on the next one. I would highly recommend these books to older readers who enjoy the Jean M Auel books or to younger readers who feel that the Jean M Auel books are a little daunting in their size.

Another brilliant book by Michelle Paver. It is were you start to see the soul eaters. The story also starts to introduce you to the Clans of the Ocean.
