Publisher's Summary

6,000 years ago, the land is one dark forest. Its people are hunters and gatherers. They know every tree and herb and they know how to survive in a world steeped in enchantment, menace, and powerful magic. Until an ambitious and malignant force conjures up a demon; a demon so evil that it can be contained only in the body of a ferocious bear; a demon so hungry for death that it slays everything it sees; a demon with the potential to destroy the world. Only Torak and his wolf companion can save the world.

    Story
    "Well written."
    What made the experience of listening to Wolf Brother the most enjoyable?

    Despite being a bit thin on plot, what there is is very entertaining. Well read by Ian McEllen of course and above all else, gripping. If you like fantasy adventure, this is for you.

    Story
    "Overall decent book."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes! I really enjoyed this book. The story seems a tad whimsical at first, but Sir Ian Mckellen keeps you engrossed in the story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Well rounded lead character.


    Have you listened to any of Sir Ian McKellen’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Unfortnatly not.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Not really, but I'm not that kind of person.


    Any additional comments?

    It's a easy "read." If you're on the fence. Just go for it!

    Story
    "So much better than I thought it'd be!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would strongly recommend this book to anyone. It is a compelling tale which works amazingly well as a stand alone story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Everything about this story was fantastic. I did not expect what seemed like a kids book to floor me like it did!


    Have you listened to any of Sir Ian McKellen’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Having Gandalf read you a bed time story is indescribable.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The ending was heart-wrencing. Knowing before hand that this was part of a series, I did not see the ending coming!

    "Really Good!"

    The book is fantastic, the way it's put into the historical context is fascinating and the characters are dynamic and interesting. The voice over by Ian McKellen is wonderful, really believable. The way he gives each character they're own voice is brilliant, plus his voice is lovely to listen to, he has a very deep voice, definitely recommend!

    "One of the greatest stories ever!"

    This is one of the greatest stories I've ever heard. I have the books too. Not since Tolkien have I ever read such a believable work. There is an intense sense of evil and terror in each page. It grips you like an iron clamp. Read and hear it, it's amazing! Ian McKellen's reading is spectacular.

    "Fantastic"

    An epic young adult series about a boy and his wolf, read to you by Gandalf. I don't think I need to say anymore; that sentence alone should suffice to convey its awesomeness.

    "WOLF BROTHER: CHRONICLES OF DARKNESS BOOK 1"

    EXCELLENT BOOK, EVEN BETTER AFTER MEETING MICHELLE PAVER HERSELF AT THE BOOK LAUNCH AT PARADISE WILDLIFE PARK AND GETTING AN AUTOGRAPH.
