In this original and spectacularly told adventure story, Torak and Wolf are joined by an incredible cast of characters as they battle to save their world, in this first book in The Chronicles of Ancient Darkness.

"Paver's depth of research...makes this impressive British import...intriguing and believable." (School Library Journal)
Ian McKellen brought this book to life. He is the best reader I've ever heard, bringing wonder and mystery and excitement to the narrative as well as to the dialog.
If this book is the first of a series, I hope he reads them all.
After listening to this first book of a six-book series I know that I am hooked for the duration. Paver takes some basic story elements and brings them excitingly alive ; a boy's kinship with an animal; a battle against pure evil; a quest of myth-like proportions.
