Ada rasa menyesal karena gak bisa lagi nonton Torak dkk. Nonton atau baca? Nah, saking hidupnya penggambaran karakter para pelaku serial ini, saking kaya dan rincinya deskripsi setting seluruh seri ini, saya berasa nonton film. Paver dengan lihaynya membawa bau-bauan, suara, visual, rasa, sentuhan, ah kelima indera dieksplor pokoknya. Udah gitu DETIL-nya! Gila keren abis.

Melalui serial ini, Paver membawa kita ke 6000 tahun lalu di masa jaman batu. Kala itu dunia masih berupa satu daratan besar, manusia hidup dalam klan, membuat peralatan dari batu dan tulang serta percaya pada kekuatan dewa dan roh-roh pelindung alam. Satu diantara klan-klan itu adalah klan Serigala. Klan yang terkenal dengan kemisteriusannya namun kini telah punah. Ya...1 klan itu telah lenyap kecuali Torak dan ayahnya.

Buku pertama (Wolf Brother) dibuka dengan pertarungan Torak dan ayahnya (Fa)

The last sequel to the "Chronicles Of Ancient Darkness" series, indeed one of my favorites.
It was an outstanding journey. Starting with "Wolf Brother" to "Ghost Hunter". I'll never stop appreciating "Michelle Paver" for creating such an amazing world. It feels really bad that it ended.
Everything was perfectly created, written, and described. You feel like you're in a different world when reading this series.
In this book you even get more into Wolf's life full of emotional moments. I really lik

The last book in this series and I'm sad to see it end. I've thoroughly enjoyed the adventures of Torak, Wolf and Renn, flying through these books in record time because I was so reluctant to put them down until they were finished. This one probably affected me the most, actually bringing me to tears in places. I won't say where for fear of spoiling the plot. This story, and the whole series in fact, really emphasizes the incredible, indestructible power of friendship, loyalty and love. I would ...more

Sadly, the final volume in this truly great series. Unnatural winter and sickness, sent by Eostra, the scary Eagle Owl Mage, are killing the tribes, and Torak realizes he must venture out and fight Eostra, who seeks Torak, the last Soul Eater, to gain ultimate power. Compelling, creepy, and just plain good storytelling. Recommended for adventure fans, unique for its post-Ice Age, pre-farming time setting. Paver did meticulous research and traveled extensively to write her books.

This book was I think my favorite of this series, which I read straight through. It is a series that I will re-read, maybe more than twice, and was very popular with the readers in the school library. Wolf sees protecting Torack as what he is for, and you can feel that is a life truth that Paver has articulated, that dogs and wolves have that kind of selfless loyalty to protect their pack, that is what they are here to do.

"Wolf longed to be with them - but they were Not-Breath. He didn't understand how this could be. Darkfur and the cubs were…not. Wolf shut his eyes. He wanted to be not too."

I am so sad this series has ended, but a what a wonderful ending Paver gives us. This was an awesome series…I would and will read this again without question. It's a magical, mysterious and exciting world Paver has created and the adventures and characters are lush and colourful and awe inspiring. I truly enjoyed these books…

I don't know why this series isn't more popular! It's like Harry Potter-meets-Lord of the Rings in Stone Age Europe! I loved the ending to the series, it was emotional and satisfying, and I even shed a few tears at the end.

My only complaint--and this goes for the other books too--is that it should have been longer! While the characters are well developed for the length of book, imagine how much more character depth you could get from a longer story. Also, the final battle in this one seemed a li

this book marginally redeemed the trainwreck that was the previous 3. torak did his usual abandoning trick, renn accepted it and everything came to a pretty happy conclusion (except for fin-kedinn, who had to deal with abandonment by his foster children. i don't think michelle would've been happy if there wasn't some form of abandonment going on, tbh).

this was probably easier for me to read because i'd become pretty inured to torak's habitual dickbaggery. also, there was quite a lot of stuff tol

"The entire series is 5 stars. A little bit like the last book of Harry Potter at the very end" said Tyler, my 8 year-old son.

Update 3/28/13:
Wow and wow. I loved this book! I tore through it not being able to handle the anticipation of how this journey ended. At the beginning, there are some of those things that do get repetitive - c'mom Torak, would you stop going off by yourself!! It is getting to be like a bad horror movie! Oddly, I felt like the horror element in this book wasn't as great as

Wow. I literally read this book in one day. I couldn't put it down because the story is so gripping but at the same time I didn't want the story to end as this is the last book in the Chronicles of Ancient Darkness series and for me that was really sad - some parts of this story genuinely made me tear up especially because over the course of the series you really get to know and care about the characters involved. It doesn't often happen, but when I'd finished the book I really did not know what ...more

Reading the last page of this book left me with such emotion, especially since the first time I picked up the first book was...quite sometime ago.

The final book did not let me down as much as other final books have. It had emotion, quite a bit of certainly chilling parts, and just enough portrayals of the strength of relationships between all the characters, especially Torak, Renn, and Wolf.

New characters and old characters meet and intertwine as the story comes to an enthralling close. The endi

How I would have loved to have had these books read to me when I was a child, or to follow the 6 books of the series through on my own with as much excitement as I saw in youngsters waiting for the next Harry Potter to come out. Ok SPOILER .......there is a Hollywood ending but it is what you want, Paver tells an exceedingly good tale, and I can only reiterate what I said on others McKellan's reading is just brilliant. It is a standard tale of good v evil but I loved her characters, I loved the ...more

I had to rush the end of this series somewhat as I have a hefty booklist to get through for work. Consequently I read the bulk of this story in one sitting on my day off. I wish I always had a chance to do this. Instead of snatching a couple of pages at bedtime, I was able to let the story carry me through, giving me a better appreciation of the pacing and the flow of events.
Ghost Hunter brought the series to a satisfying conclusion in the exciting manner to which we have come to expect from Mic

Wow. The ending to a great series! I really enjoyed these books. They were different to anything I had read, and still anything I have read to date. Torak’s world is full of lore and intrigue. I honestly didn’t want these books to end, and could have read another six more. The characters of Torak, Renn and Wolf are brilliant. I hope that one day a movie series can be made. I’m sure it would be popular if done right. I feel that this story could work in animation or live action. This really is a ...more

Karena berdasarkan informasi Penerbit Matahati baru akan menerbitkan buku ini bulan Januari 2011, supaya nggak ngegantung kubaca saja ebook edisi pamungkas ini. Awalnya tentu saja agak kagok membaca Tinggi Takberekor menjadi Tall Tailess, sama seperti waktu baca Harry Potter versi Bloomsbury, karena kadung terbiasa dengan istilah-istilah versi terjemahan.

Mudah-mudahan di terjemahan buku 6 tidak ada lagi salah ketik/cetak yang kecil tapi cukup mengganggu seperti Dukun menjadi Sukun...

This book is by far my favorite. It has all the mystery and adventure a book could contain, and the author uses all the details correctly, but the author doesn’t seem to want to kill her characters, and tries to keep them alive even if that means bringing them back to life, which i my opinion should be illegal. The main problem with this book is how, when or where the protagonists powers. Some of the rules of the protagonist’s powers seem stretched. Sometimes the main character can spirit walk a ...more

The magnificent finale to The Chronicles of Ancient Darkness series. As Soul's Night approaches the evil Eagle Owl Mage is attempting to use the spirits of the Unquiet Dead to take over the Forest. She only needs one thing to complete her spell, Torak's spirit. Torak, Wolf, and Renn head for the Mountain of Ghosts to defeat Eostra once and for all. A magnificent series and an ending that makes you beg for more.

----aku persembahkan 5 bintang untuk Michelle Paver yang sudah menyajikan kisah zaman kuno yang begitu menawan dan menjeratku untuk setia menikmati serial ini....ending yang menyejukkan ketika Torak dan Renn dan Serigala dan Bulugelap (dan anak mereka) tidak akan pernah terpisahkan....WOW!

This is the final book in a series I really enjoyed - I listened to the first five, and now, several years after it was published, I determined I would never find the audio book at any of my libraries, so I gave up and read the last book. So glad I did - Paver manages to wrap up this story in a very satisfactory way. I can't say it was unpredictable - but then the series is written for 8-10 year olds and I'm closer to 60 than 8 - I don't know if kids would make the same plot leaps I made while r ...more

Torak is on his way to the mountain to defeat the last and strongest Soul Eater, Eostra. He left without telling Renn, and stopped by Wolf and his mate, Darkfur, to see the cubs and say goodbye. Once he left the den, he headed towards the mountain. Little did he know that someone was going to kill Darkfur and one of the cubs, also kidnapping a cub, Pebbles. Renn finding out that Torak left decided that she had to go help him, and somehow managed to get ahead of him.

I really liked this book personally i think that Michelle Paver could hve added on some more to the story. I also think that this book is TOO PREDICTABLE it is like whatever you predict coems true threr isnt really anything that you do not expect in this book. It is not like all of the other books in the series where there is a certain twist toward the end. But in a way the book is still god it still has all of the action packed Indian fun that i love. Another thing that i like about this book ...more

Sebenarnya aku pusing, mau memberi buku ini empat atau tiga bintang.

Apakah aku menikmatinya? Oh, ya, sangat. Seperti yang beberapa pembaca lain katakan, aku juga menikmati kisah terakhir dari seri Chronicles of Ancient Darkness ini.

Tapi yang menggangguku ...

> Kesan bahwa serial ini seperti "dipaksa" tamat di buku ini.

Tiap-tiap buku sebelumnya memiliki ciri masing-masing, yang menurutku paling jelas, adalah gambaran kehidupan sebuah suku purba dengan tempat tinggal yang berbeda-beda: buku per

Okay, this book totally redeems the series. It is at least as well done as the first book of the series (Wolf Brother).

With as little as I liked the fourth and fifth books in this series, I wonder if I just don't like middle books. I'm one of those people who thinks The Empire Strikes Back is incredibly boring, and I'd just rather get to the Ewoks, thank you very much. (Incidentally, I also still think of the Star Wars movies as a trilogy. They start with IV and end with VI, and that's enough f

The final instillment of Michelle Paver's Chronicles of Ancient Darkness is no disappointment to those who have stuck with Torak and his pack-brother Wolf until throughout the series. The darkest of the series by a long way. The threat of Eostra hangs over the forest like a second darkness and Torak must continue his battle to rid the world of the Soul Eaters- a group of mages who it is his destiny to fight. I admit that when I first read it I was slightly put out by it, but no I regard it as on ...more

Siamo giunti alla fine, questo è l'ultimo libro della saga "Cronache dell'era oscura", e che dire semplicemente stupendo, come anche gli altri, forse un po' scontato il finale ma non importa; anche qui la Paver riesce a immergerti in quel mondo primitivo, dove sono vissuti i nostri antenati, e a far emergere i lati positi e negativi di quel periodo così lontano da noi. Dire addio a questo mondo fantastico pieno di magia e di amore per la natura è, in un certo modo, triste...ma non poteva durare ...more

Michelle Paver was born in Central Africa, but came to England as a child. After gaining a degree in Biochemistry from Oxford University, she became a partner in a City law firm, but eventually gave that up to write full-time.

The hugely successful Chronicles of Ancient Darkness series arose from Michelle's lifelong passion for animals, anthropology and the distant past - as as well as an encounter
