Torak has survived the summer and his heart-stopping adventure in the Seal Islands. He and Wolf are together again. But their reunion is all too short-lived.
As mid winter approaches Torak learns the worst from the White Fox clan - Wolf has been snatched. In a desperate bid to rescue him, Torak and Renn must brave the frozen wilderness of the Far North. They tread a deadly dangerous path as they step into a world of deceit, treachery and lies and come face to face with the the most powerful and feared mages alive. Cruel Thiazzi, the Oak Tree Mage, Seshru the Viper Mage, beautiful and manipulative, and Nef the gruff Bat Mage - here too is Eostra, the mysterious Masked One - all of them bound by their desire for all creatures to bow before them.
Under the dark wings of night Torak confronts vengeful ice bears, mistrust, broken promises and a terrifying evil.
Another step is taken on his quest to destroy the Soul-Eaters, but with it comes the burden of an utterly chilling secret of his own...

The achievement of the year has to be Ian McKellen's narration of the three instalments of Michelle Paver's CHRONICLES OF ANCIENT DARKNESS, WOLF BROTHER, SPIRIT WALKER and SOUL EATER. Having been given rewardingly rich material in Paver's inspired evocation of a Stone Age culture of nature gods and hunting wisdoms, he is equally good as Gandalfian tribal gurus, the intrepid Torak of the Wolf Clan, the stoic archer heroine Renn of the Ravens and the intelligent wolfcub Wolf. (Christina Hardyment THE TIMES)
McKellen's rich, authoritative Gandalf tones evoke ancient lore, myth and magic good and bad - plus, of course, wolf-speak. (Sue Arnold THE GUARDIAN)
'As well as powerful characterisation and heart-thumping plots, they offer fascinating practical details of how life was lived in the Stone Age.' 3 July 2010 (Christina Hardyment THE TIMES)
Dazzling entertainment, seamless storytelling - Torak and Renn brave the frozen wilderness of the Far North in a desperate bid to rescue Wolf, in their third adventure to vanquish the terrifying Soul-Eaters. Unabridged edition, read by Ian McKellen
