'If an Outsider wields the blade, the House of Koronos burns...'

Hylas is only a boy but he knows three things:

The Gods exist.

Magic is real.

Somebody wants him dead.

Hunted and alone, Hylas is desperate to find his missing sister. His quest takes him across the hostile mountains and treacherous seas of Ancient Greece. His only friend is a girl on the run. His only guide is a wild dolphin.

And his murderous enemies are closing in...

Michelle Paver was born in Malawi in 1960 and moved to England when she was three. After gaining a degree in biochemistry from Oxford, she became a partner in a City law firm, but gave that up to write full-time. To research her stories about animals and the distant past, she has travelled in the Arctic, the Mediterranean and Egypt, swum with dolphins and killer whales, and encountered bears, boars and wolves. She is the author of the internationally bestselling Chronicles of Ancient Darkness, the final book of which won the 2010 Guardian Children's Fiction Prize.

Review:

Paver is the mistress of suspense (Amanda Craig The Times)

Heartstoppingly real ( Independent)

The kind of story you dream of reading and all too rarely find ( The Times)

A classic children's book . . . superb writing (Anthony Horowitz)

These books are full of magic, adventure and action, and they appeal equally to both sexes (Charlie Higson)

Like other great children's books which also entrance adults, Wolf Brother conjures up an utterly believable, yet original world where the story grips you to the very last page (Sir Ian McKellen)

From the Author:

Dear Reader,

Since I was little, I've adored the myths of Ancient Greece and Ancient Egypt, and to write Gods and Warriors, I’ve swum with wild dolphins and climbed an erupting volcano – all to make you feel that you're right there, living the adventure. Amazon readers' opinions matter hugely to me, and you could be among the first to read Gods and Warriors. I really hope you enjoy it.

--Michelle Paver
