9780060728342: Outcast (Chronicles of Ancient Darkness)

The dreadful secret that Torak carries with him at the close of SOUL EATER is revealed and he is cast out from the clans. It's his fourteenth summer. He's alone, cut off even from Wolf and Renn. Hunted and on the run he takes refuge in unknown territory - the haunted reedbeds of Lake Axehead, where he is menaced by the Hidden People. Other threats lurk nearby and his battle with the Soul-Eaters is far from over . . .

As he fights for his life, Torak uncovers a deception too awful to contemplate, one that shakes him to the core and shatters his world.

Review:

Paver skilfully enters different perspectives to depict an entire human culture in action. There's nothing "primitive" about her hunter-gatherers... she shows a dignified and resourceful culture rooted in a strong sense of connection with its environment. ( THE GUARDIAN)

Michelle Paver keeps every minute tingling with excitement, mystery and adventure. ( KIDSREADS)

It's a gripping adventure story that's so full of superb description of time and place that you feel utterly transported into Torak's world and that of his pack-brother Wolf. ( LOVEREADING4KIDS)

'sad and touching' ( BLISS)

His (Torak) adventures in The Chronicles of Ancient Darkness series have been thrilling from the first page, and he has become a great hero for the new generation ( THE TIMES)

Often dark and hallucinatory in its imagery, the book combines a crispness of style and a powerful understanding of loneliness, love, fear and friendship with a vivid landscape...gripping ( THE SUNDAY TIMES)

This is an amazing book (Sebastian Johnson SUNDAY EXPRESS)

Gripping... action-packed ( OBSERVER)

A triumph ( INDEPENDENT)

Absorbing ( GUARDIAN)

Paver's prose is brisk and she has enough confidence in the solidity of her world to need no over-elaboration...at the same time, there's a relentless pageturning drive to the narrative ( GUARDIAN)

Paver's skilful storytelling leads the reader off on a compelling journey ( SCOTLAND ON SUNDAY)

Impossible to put down... packed with action, mystery and strong friendship ( THE SUNDAY HERALD)

Review:

"Never mind the kids, I've been queueing up for the next instalment of Paver's CHRONICLES OF ANCIENT DARKNESS ... Spine-chillingly scary and utterly riveting."
