WolfbaneWolf Brother, 9by Michelle Paver

Grand finale to the prize-winning adventure series that's changed the lives of millions of readers. Breathtaking world-building on an epic scale. Pure escapism at its best.

It is early spring, a turbulent, perilous time of sudden storms, frozen river fractures and drifting ice. Fleeing from a demon intent on devouring his souls, Wolf is swept out to Sea far from the Forest and his pack. The ocean too teems with danger: sea wolves, sharks and hunters of the deep, and the demon is gaining ground. Torak and Renn must race to save their pack-brother, battling the harsh, icy waves and merciless torrents. If they can't find Wolf in time, the bond between them will be severed for ever...

Run wild with Wolf Brother for the last time in a Stone Age world we all want to be part of, with three-million-copy-selling author Michelle Paver, Creator of Legends.

Read WOLFBANE as a standalone adventure or as part of the well-loved series.

'Michelle Paver's Wolf Brother series has been, and remains, a touch-stone for so many young readers: beautifully drawn and heart-thumpingly exciting, it deserves its title of modern classic' Phil Earle, author of When the Sky Falls

'Michelle Paver's Wolf Brother series is the reason I'm a children's bookseller. The legendary tale of Torak and Wolf, brimming with mythology and the magic of an earlier time, has been a companion through my young and adult life' Steve Bundy, Waterstones Arndale Centre Manchester

'Conjures with complete conviction a historical, fantastical and sometimes brutal world' Sunday Times

'A wonderful, immersive, and moving story. I feel like I have been on a journey to a place I almost remember. I don't know how Michelle recreates such a feeling of place and character and at the same time transports you on every page through layers and layers of time' Hilary McKay, author of The Swallows' Flight

'It transports us a long way from the here and now' Sunday Times Children's Book of the Week, on Skin Taker.
'Michelle Paver is a writer of extraordinary talent. I was enthralled, from start to finish. The storytelling was every bit as vivid and immersive as I remembered... Michelle is in a league of her own with this series and what luck for us all that she hasn't finished with Torak, Renn and Wolf's world yet' Abi Elphinstone, author of Rumblestar, on Viper's Daughter.
'What rich, dazzling, immersive storytelling. The landscape was so bright the light left me blinking, the details as sharp as a carved bone needle... The best book I have read this year by a country mile. (By a wild arctic length of many wolf lopes, I suppose I should say)'
Hilary McKay, author of The Skylarks' War, on Viper's Daughter
