US Kirkus Review » The fourth episode in this prehistoric epic pitches young spirit-walker Torak into a struggle to keep his multiple "souls" out of the clutches of the power-mad Viper Mage. Unjustly accused of being a Soul Stealer, Torak is cast out of his clan and summoned by the Mage, who inflicts him with a "soul-sickness" that robs him of his superb woodcraft, his intimate awareness of the world and, almost, his ability to tell good from evil. The vividly interwoven natural and spiritual settings that have distinguished this series emerge in long stretches seen from the point-of-view of Wolf, Torak's faithful four-legged companion. Much of the journey and ensuing confrontation, however, seems distant, filtered through Torak's sharply felt inner turmoil. Paver moves her cast along, springs major revelations and brings everything around right in the end, but the plot's most dramatic elements (notably a major flood that is over in half a page) take a back seat to character development. (Fantasy. 11-13) (Kirkus Reviews)

Author Biography - Michelle Paver
Born in Malawi to a Belgian mother and a father who ran the tiny 'Nyasaland Times', Michelle Paver moved to the UK when she was three. She was brought up in Wimbledon and, following a Biochemistry Degree from Oxford, she became a partner in a big City law firm. Eventually, though, having submerged herself in myth and folklore (not at the office) and having been chased by a bear (again, not at work), she gave up the lawyer life to follow her long-held dream of becoming a writer. Successfully published as an adult author, the CHRONICLES OF ANCIENT DARKNESS are her first - brilliant - books for children. Ian McKellen is internationally renowned for his distinguished work on stage and screen over four decades. He has won over 40 acting awards. He plays Gandalf in The Lord of the Rings, Magneto in the X-Men films and Sir Leigh Teabing in The Da Vinci Code. Throughout his career, he has enjoyed working regularly for radio. His solo reading of The Odyssey for Penguin Books won a U.S. Audie in 1997. His full biography is on www.mckellen.com
