9780060728373: Oath Breaker (Chronicles of Ancient Darkness (Hardcover))

Torak circled the fire and Thiazzi came after him: slowly, cracking his whip, playing with his prey as a lynx plays with a lemming. Torak was exhausted. He wasn't going to last much longer.

When he was outcast, Torak was the hunted one. Nine moons later he becomes the hunter, when he vows to avenge the killing of one of his closest friends.

Racked by guilt and grief, he follows the killer into the Deep Forest, where the World Spirit stalks the hidden valleys as a tall man with the antlers of a stag. But there is a rottenness at the heart of the Forest, for its clans have succumbed to the lies of the Soul-Eaters. Here Torak must face fire, war, and overwhelming evil.

The fifth book in the Chronicles of Ancient Darkness series, Oath Breaker is a story about keeping promises and the true cost of vengeance.

About the Author:

Michelle Paver was born in central Africa, but moved to England as a child. After earning a degree in biochemistry from Oxford University, she became a partner in a London law firm, but eventually gave that up to write full-time.

Chronicles of Ancient Darkness arises from her lifelong passions for animals, anthropology, and the distant past. It was also inspired by her travels in Norway, Lapland, Iceland, and the Carpathian Mountains and particularly by an encounter with a large bear in a remote valley in Southern California.

Book Description HarperCollins/BOMC. 1 Cloth(s), 2008. hard. Book Condition: New. When he was condemned in Outcast, the previous book of the Chronicles of Ancient Darkness saga, Torak was the hunted one; in this book, only nine moons later, he becomes the hunter, vowing to avenge the killing of one of his closest friends. Torak and Renn follow a murderous Soul-Eater into the Deep Forest, where the World Spirit stalks the hidden valleys in the form of a man with the antlers of a stag. But something is rotten at the heart of the Forest, and its clans have succumbed to the trickery of the Soul-Eaters. This fifth book in Michelle Paver's Guardian Children's Fiction Prize–winning series for readers 10 and up, set in the Stone Age of far northern Europe, is a story about keeping promises and the true cost of vengeance. "Torak is living with his foster father Fin-Kedinn and the Seal Clan when his friend Bale is murdered. Vowing revenge against the soul-eater who killed him, Torak and Renn discover that there is a bigger plot at work, one that threatens all of the clans of the forests. Torak must see past his hatred and vengeful quest to stop the evil that has taken root. Once again Paver blends her knowledge of animals and the ancient European landscape with magic and legend to add a new chapter to this story. Fans of the series will not be disappointed."—School Library Journal 293. Bookseller Inventory # 31638
