9781444006650: Ghost Hunter: Book 6 (Chronicles of Ancient Darkness)

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 her 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 heart-rending choice of all. Launched at the height of the Harry Potter phenomenon, the Chronicles of Ancient Darkness is the ultimate magical adventure. This edition contains brand new interviews with Michelle Paver. Audio edition also available, read by Ian McKellen.

About the Author:

Born in Malawi to a Belgian mother and a father who ran the tiny 'Nyasaland Times', Michelle Paver moved to the UK when she was three. She was brought up in Wimbledon and, following a Biochemistry Degree from Oxford, she became a partner in a big City law firm. She gave up the City to follow her long-held dream of becoming a writer. Successfully published as an adult author, the CHRONICLES OF ANCIENT DARKNESS are her first books for children.

Review:

The finale is a climax as intense as Tolkien's fall of Mordor, with demonic dogs, fiendish one-time children, and Soul-Eaters summoned from beyond the grave. THE INDEPENDENT The final part of the brilliant Chronicles of Ancient Darkness... The saga of dark versus light is told with Paver's rigourous pace and brilliant attention to the detail of the Torak's world THE BOOKSELLER ...the themes of friendship and sacrifice are strong, and the descriptions of hunting, tracking and living in the world of six thousand years ago are as vivid and as interesting as ever... I'm going to miss the Forest and the clans now that the series is over. The Chronicles of Ancient Darkness are aimed at younger teens but I still love them aged nearly-sixteen, and I don't think I'll outgrow them any times soon. SCOTTISH BOOK TRUST GHOST HUNTER is the final installment in Michelle Paver's wonderfulChronicles of Ancient Darkness series. These books should definitely be in every school library as they offer fantastic insights and terrific storytelling of a time long gone. KIDSREADS "Whatever the individual judges thought about fantasy before they began Ghost Hunter... they were immediately captivated by Michelle's brilliantly created world, her wonderfully dramatic story and her powerful story telling.
