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 I would read next that would hold the same amount of sway over my attention and emotions! The last time this happened was with the Harry Potter stories. Michelle Paver is a brilliant writer and story teller for children and adults in equal measure by far matching and surpassing authors such as JK Rowling - It's good to know there's life after Harry Potter for young readers out there and I now know I can confidently recommend Michelle Paver to any student who comes up to me in the library asking for suggestions of the epic variety.

Philippa Collier Very good review Lucy! I will certainly be adding these books to my wish list - they sound great. I've not read a book in a long while that has really held me like the HP books.
