Publisher's Summary

As winter approaches and Souls' Night draws near, the Eagle Owl Mage holds the clans in the grip of terror.

To fulfill his destiny, Torak must seek his lair in the Mountain of Ghosts. He must defy demons and tokoroths, and find his way through the Gorge of the Hidden People. Wolf must overcome terrible grief. Renn must make an agonizing decision. And in the final battle against the Soul-Eater, Torak must face the most heartrending choice of all.

An enthralling conclusion to a great saga.

We held our breath and waited to see if this book could match the high standards of those which preceded it. It was worth the wait, and yes it does come up to standard! As beautifully crafted as before, and impeccably read by Ian McKellen, this is an extremely fitting conclusion to the series.
Torak, Renn, & Wolf find themselves in terrible danger from the remaining Soul-Eater. his tokoroths and the deep magic which the Eagle Owl mage commands. All the clans are threatened, and Torak finds himself fearful to even enter his beloved forest. Dark Fur and Pebble too play their parts and in the end all must make a decision, for as Wolf knows 'No wolf can belong to two packs'.
The final outcome is not without sacrifice on all sides but provides perhaps the most rewarding conclusion to what has become a truly classical piece of writing. The six books stand shoulder to shoulder with other recent classics, including Philip Pullman's much lauded 'Dark Materials' trilogy.
Generations of children will read this series, or listen to Ian's spectacular readings and will be drawn into Torak's world.For this is a world which we can believe, smell and touch, and serves as a reminder to all of us that if we kill our forests, mountains, rivers and lakes, our world too will be consumed by demons.
Thank-you Michelle. Your switch from lawyer to story teller was well worth it!

A fabulous end to a fabulous series

This is the stunning conclusion to Michelle Paver's immensely popular Chronicles Of Ancient Darkness series. As Torak prepares for the final battle his destiny has been leading him towards, Wolf deals with personal grief and Ren, too, must decide where her own destiny lies; with her clan or with Torak. As with all the others, Ghost Hunter is powerful, with beautiful descriptions and completes this spellbinding series. My only regret is that this amazing epic has drawn to a close. I think we can expect more great work from this author in the future.

Great Book

great book All In All I think it needs some description and the most important part.
I also think that the most memorable part is when Torak is with the Soul Eater
