    My son and I loved the second book of Chronicles of Ancient Darkness and were incredibly jealous of the author's real-life experience of swimming with wild killer whales in Norway to research the book! The adventures of Torak, Renn, and Wolf with the Seal Clan along with the revelation of the spirit walker kept us breathless and sleepless. The perspective of Wolf is always fascinating, and of course Renn and Torak are fun to see growing and learning. We are impatient to read the next book.

    I definitely preferred the first book in the series over this one, but I still found it incredibly fast-paced and interesting. I think the plot was a bit more compelling the first for me. I really enjoyed the exploration of more nautical native populations and how their cultures would have been different than the ones we've seen before. Definitely going to be continuing with the series soon as I already have the third book in my possession.

    Once again, I cannot fully express the magnificence of this book, or the whole Chronicles of Ancient Darkness series in fact. It was a great follow up to Wolf Brother.

I loved the introduction of new characters, and the unexpected twists. I loved the development of Torak as a character, and the true meaning of his 'power'. I loved how Torak and Wolf's relationship was expressed, the realness of it. Everything was amazing. Maybe it was just me, but the twists were all completely unexpected, and I had to play detective in guessing what the clues were pointing at. An author has succeeded in creating a great turn of events when the reader finds out with the characters what it truly going on. The connections between the tokoroth, sickness, Noched Fin and Tenris were what kept me guessing. Obviously Tenris had some relation to the Soul Eaters, but there was so much more to it. Where does she get these ideas? How does she conjure up such complex yet utterly real stories? How does she not run out of ideas? The answer; she is a genius.

Desperate to find a cure, Torak sets off west to the sea to find a remedy among the Seal Clan.

Desperate to find a cure, Torak sets off west to the sea to find a remedy among the Seal Clan. He intentionally sets off alone, but secretly wishes Wolf was by his side once again, instead of with his wolf-pack. At the shores of the sea, he is taken captive by Bale, Asrif, and Detlan. His captors take him to an isolated island to meet his fate and the island mage, Tenris. Tenris seems wise, kind, and all-knowing, and most importantly he knows of a cure for the sickness affecting the clans. He cured his clan three summers ago when they fell deathly ill to the strange disease. Torak will do anything to bring the remedy back to the forest. But, dangers follow Torak and people are not who or what they seem to be. Torak needs Wolf and Renn to fight the evils and eventually all three are together again, but is it too little, too late? In the end, Torak discovers a frightening secret about himself and his father that will lead him onto his next journey.

    I LOVE this book. I'm obsessed. More even than Wolf Brother. This is my second reading, I'd forgotten most of it since it had been years and I fell in love with it all over again. Torak is looking for the cure to a strange illness, but there are some turns of events that make it all interesting. There's intense buildup, there is suspense; unlike Wolf Brother, this time you're never really sure who the enemy is, or if there is one, and what they want, until the end.

And then, there's plot twists, reveals and betrayal. This time you're also introduced to the nautical clans, their traditions and lifestyle (as opposed to the forest clans) and you can tell the author did some extended research on the topic. I'd love to meet Bale from the Seal Clan again in the next books. However, the same way I did with Wolf Brother, I struggle with the way sceneries are depicted. Lots of times, the way things are described makes no sense to me and I have to reread it again and again to be able to picture it. Sometimes, it's crucial to understand what is going on and what the characters are doing which left me having no idea how they found themselves in such situations more than once (Is it just me? Would love to hear about this from someone who read it). For this reason, I wanted to give it 4.5 stars, but half stars aren't an option and I loved this book too much nonetheless to give it 4 stars. Also, am I the only one to be extremly surprised Fin-Keddin is only 39 years old? For some reason I imagined him as an old man, barely younger than Saeunn, and pictured him as some type of Dumbledore. In conclusion I completely recommend it to everyone who's already read Wolf Brother. You won't be disappointed in this sequel.

    This book continues the Chronicles of Ancient Darkness. It is number two of the series. This series is supposed to be aimed at children. I would argue that there are some segments that are too violent and upsetting for children and that it is for adults. With that caution in mind, it is an enjoyable read, fast paced and intriguing.

    Spirit Walker was a fantastic sequel, I really enjoyed it! I am seriously in love with this series. The mysteries surrounding Torak’s powers were just wonderful. I need to know more about his abilities okay? Because they are just awesome. The poor boy just can’t have a break can he? I love how he went off to find the cure of the sickness all by himself. That was really brave. I also adore Renn and Wolf’s tentative friendship. So cute.

It was nice to have a different setting for this book: The Sea and the Seal Islands. Once again, Michelle Paver did a brilliant job with the amount of detail she put in for the Seal clan people and the sea animals especially the seals. I love seals! But like Torak, Renn and Wolf, I missed the forest. Can’t wait to read Soul Eater! I know it’s going to be even better!

    found the second book to be a much better read. I think the mixing of the seal clan led to more adventure. I love the wolf , an amazing loyal guardian.

    I really don't know how to describe these books. I love Michelle Pavers attention to detail and how she obviously researched these things. It's really brilliant. I honestly can't say anything about this book that'll really do it justice. Michelle Paver is on par with my favourite author, Darren Shan right now. Watch out Darren, Michelle's coming.

Raven Clan leader Fin-Kedinn has revealed to Torak the group responsible for its creation, an evil group of mages known as the Soul Eaters who aim to rule the forest. They must be stopped, and it is Torak’s task to do so. Spirit Walker was good, but still suffered a little from second book syndrome. It dragged in a few sections, but Paver made up for with a couple of spectacular scenes as the novel reached its climax. Like with Wolf Brother, the detail Paver goes to combined with her delivery makes this novel quite special. This time she takes us to the sea and I was so vividly able to imagine its ways, its creatures and the clans that inhabited the islands (I would love to be able to see Killer Whales up close in the Sea as Paver did). Paver introduces to a few new character new characters, primarily Bale, a boy little older than Torak and Renn from the Seal Clan who features heavily throughout the second half of the novel. There is the also Tenris, the mysterious Seal Mage. This one deserves four stars since it is an enjoyable read but falls slightly short of standard achieved by Wolf Brother. If you have read book 1 but not read any of the others, I highly suggest you do so because these novels will take your breath away. Onto book 3 titled Soul Eater.

    A teen-hood favourite that is still amazing even reading it at 21. With little time the easy reading is appreciated, but the story still sucks you in as you keep wondering what is going to be revealed next. I found myself getting emotional at certain parts, so it still makes you feel even though it is not as technical in writing style. Easily my favourite series of all time, and I can't wait to continue on with it!

    Spirit Walker is the second book in the best selling series “Chronicles of Ancient Darkness” by Michelle Paver. This book is, in the author’s words, “is the world six thousand years ago: a time after the Ice Age and before farming, when the whole of northwest Europe was covered by Forest and Trees. The people in that time looked just like you and me, but their way of life was different”. This was unquestionably a time of survival, Clans/Groups of people, and where the rushing fast waters of the Spirit Walker is the second book in the best selling series “Chronicles of Ancient Darkness” by Michelle Paver. This book is, in the author’s words, “is the world six thousand years ago: a time after the Ice Age and before farming, when the whole of northwest Europe was covered by Forest and Trees. The people in that time looked just like you and me, but their way of life was different”. This was unquestionably a time of survival, Clans/Groups of people, and where the rushing fast waters of the sea accompanied the forests. The blurb has a very catchy feeling to it, by saying, “As the moon of No Dark waxes large, the clans fall prey to a horrifying sickness. Fear stalks the forest. No one knows the cause- and only Torak can find the cure. His quest takes him across the sea to the mysterious islands of the Seal Clan. Here, Torak battles an unseen menace, and uncovers a betrayal that will change his life- forever”. It gives a bit of the information on what the book is about, but also reveals that there are still a lot more secrets to be uncovered. Orions Children’s Books published this book on June 28th 2005. Unlike Wolf Brother or any other book in the series, Spirit Walker is a stand-alone Sequel. It is also the longest book in the series, with 360 pages. This book’s plot follows main character Torak (of the Wolf Clan), Renn (of the Raven Clan), and a Wolf (Torak’s pack brother), travelling across the forest and eventually to the mysterious islands of the Seal Clan to find a cure for a sickness circulating throughout the forest in which they live. The book starts off by describing the how Torak now lives with the Raven Clan, and his pack-brother Wolf lives in the High Mountains, ext to the Mountain of World Spirit, where Torak ventured in the first book of the series, “Wolf Brother”(read the book to figure out what I talking about). Oslak, a Raven Clan hunter, becomes sick with an incurable mysterious sickness, and attempts to commit suicide with son Dari who is five summers (5 years) old. The Raven Clan Leader, Fin-Kedinn, then stops him. When the Clan mage, Saeunn, tries to cure him, it doesn’t work. Eventually, Oslak runs up a hill, and jumps of a cliff into the water and dies. What everybody doesn’t know is that Torak knows Oslak didn’t commit suicide; he didn’t jump of the cliff. He was pushed off. Torak realises that a small creature with claws is responsible for pushing Oslak off the cliff, and also was stalking him and trying to kill him. Hence, Torak sneaks out of camp to figure out what this sickness was, and how it could be cured. He then leaves camp. All of this in the first few chapters! If you want to figure more out, you should then read the book, as I can’t tell you everything that happens. If you want more of an inside view, then read the first book in the series, “Wolf Brother” I am absolutely thrilled with the way this book has turned out, with action on every single page. You just cannot resist the temptation to flip the page and continue reading. It is a book that I found terribly hard to put down, as there was just a great element of suspense to it. This book has done a fantastic job of telling people how the time of the past was, and the way that the author has made it sound very interesting, wow! It is just too good. This book has many different aspects to it, with a friendship aspect, an aspect of having a brother who has left, and came back, and other aspects, which can really produce breathtaking scenes. This book was personally recommended to me by a friend, who I have lost touch with. So, now I am very thankful to him for recommending this book, as if I hadn’t read this book, I would have missed out on something in life, as my good friend Pranav always says. This book convincingly describes each character with the detail of a hawk, covering absolutely every single inch of detail required. Therefore, personally, I am very impressed with the way this book has turned out, and I would recommend it to any type of reader from the ages of 10 and above, as they would be immediately attached to the awesome action, and the indescribable page-to-page suspense. It is just like riding a roller coaster, with your different highs and lows, plus your different speeds, either fast or slow. I consider this book as a masterpiece by Michelle Paver, as she has struck the exact notes time and time again. Fantastic. I just don’t know what to say about the book, as I am speechless. This book is a book too good to be true, and this is at the very top of my bookshelf, with a whole load of other amazing books in my collection. I just can’t seem to understand why nobody has made a movie behind/about this book, it just doesn’t make sense. But, I can tell you, when the movie is made and released at some point of time, I will be the first person to buy tickets for it, I guarantee.

    "You must read this, miss - it's fantastic." Hmmm. It was a bit of a slow start compounded by the failure of Kirstin, who recommended it, to tell me it was the second book in the Chronicles of Ancient Darkness. I was baffled, to put it mildly. It's the story of a boy of neolithic times who can communicate with a wolf. This ability is strange enough to make the tribe he lives with after his father's death quite wary of him.

It's the story of a boy of neolithic times who can communicate with a wolf. This ability is strange enough to make the tribe he lives with after his father's death quite wary of him. A strange sickness, causing madness and death, comes to the Forest and the boy, Torak, sets off to find a cure. Told partly from his point of view, partly from the wolf's, and partly from that of the girl Renn, it has twists and turns that I felt I would have appreciated more fully if I'd read the previous story. The full impact of the final revelations about the nature of the illness and why it was caused would have packed a bigger wallop, I'm sure, if I had any sense of Torak's father who, it transpired, had died in the previous book. I would have liked to have seen more of the tokoroth, the demon-possessed children, who were quite sympathetic characters by the end. One big quibble I have with the book is that Renn and Wolf at times seemed to arrive just in time to rescue Torak, although there was no sense that they had caught up with him from a distance. There was an odd feeling of geographical violation - or maybe that's too strong - maybe it's just inconsistency throughout the story. On the other hand, I'm prepared to believe this was a deliberate stylistic choice of the author's: there was a sense of 'spirit walking' in the book long before the revelations of the plot to find and trap the spirit walker.

    "Faint and far away, voices floated on the wind. Torak sat up. It was a wolf pack. Howling to celebrate a kill. Torak forgot his dizziness - forgot everything - as the wolf song flowed over him like a river." The Chronicles of Ancient Darkness…definitely a hidden gem. Paver's first book in the series "Wolf Brother" was absolutely awesome. This, the second in the series, is equally fantastic. I so enjoyed spending time once again with Torak, Wolf and Renn.

The forest comes alive as Torak heads out on another adventure, but this time with a twist as he soon finds himself on the Sea. The journey to the Sea was unexpected but thrilling. Paver writes a colourful world full of charm and wisdom. Although this book was a bit shy on the interactions between Wolf and Torak and Renn and Torak…it was still a great read and I eagerly await the next book "Soul Eater". The new characters of Bale and Tenris were a nice addition. While I didn't find myself crazy about either, both played their part and I would be happy to visit with Bale again. The relationships between Torak, Wolf and Renn were a bit on the light side…I am hoping that Paver explores these both a little more in the next read. Thanks again to my friend Matic…these are truly original…just like you <3 "Torak said, I'll see you again, Bale. Some day I'll show you the Forest. Bale glanced at the tall pines fringing the beach. 'A few days ago, I wouldn't have thought that possible. But I suppose - I never thought I'd see a wolf in a skinboat.' So - so why not a Seal in a Forest? said Torak with a smile."

    This is the second installment in this series and it’s also the first book in this series that I read many years ago. As it involved a wolf, I told my brother - who's obsessed with wolves and werewolves - about it. My brother continuously pestered me to check in bookshops and the library for the entire series until he got all six of them. The funny thing is that I could scarcely remember reading this, but I remembered that it had to be good for me to even recommend it. And I was right.

The funny thing is that I could scarcely remember reading this, but I remembered that it had to be good for me to even recommend it. And I was right. Spirit Walker was an excellent read. This novel continues and intensifies the action of the introductory novel. The adventure begins to grow more grim and deadly as Torak battles to find a cure for the tribes. Once again he’s given another piece of the puzzle to the mystery of his origins. To note this book seems very much attractive to young boys. There’s a young male lead and his “brother” is a wolf. He practices survival skills and is very courageous. However, I do have to mention Renn, the female lead, who continues to play a strong role in this novel. She possesses traits of loyalty, intelligence and determination which make her a great heroine for girls. Since I have obviously been challenged to read this series I do intend to finish it, but I somehow find myself getting caught up in these events. I find myself more interested in inhaling the action it is rather addictive. I am excited to learn more about Torak and his adventures in this prehistoric world.

Or will they just become friends?I really wished for the former though..A bit of love will add some spice to this awesome story! The story revolved around how Torak had to adapt his self with his new surrounding, being with more people than he ever met before. Not to mention his life was being threatened now with the 'soul-eaters' who had realized Torak`s potentials and the power that he can bring with him. I really love Wolf`s character here. FOr some reason, I think he was the comic in the book..His antics were both funny and awkward when he`s with other tailless, but somehow he was courageous when Torak`s was in danger. One thing I love about this book was the writer herself. She has a very unique writing style. It seemed to me that she knows how to portray the awkwardness of the characters, the details of the actions that she wrote and not to mention her uses of words were amazing! A very good read^^

    I like the interesting way Torak and Wolf think of things. e.g. Great Wet = Ocean, Great Up = Sky, Tall Tailless (Wolf) Pack Brother = Torak. The language is awkward at first, but the story is worth it! Clan cultures, beliefs and people were fascinating. Torak is taken in a seal skin boat to the Seal Island by Bale, Asrif, and Detlan to meet his mother's seal clan kin. Torak learns more about his power and finds answers to some Wolf Brother mysteries.

Complicated story with tokoroths, forest sickness, search for the cure, Tenris (seal mage), seal clan, Notched Fin and Torak's power. I hope we don't see any more soulless tokoroths, because they made my skin crawl. There were a few things that I didn't like: it seemed too easy for Torak to learn to paddle a seal boat, Torak wasn't punished for violating clan law, I wished the guardian would've helped Torak instead of just showing up, no one asked Renn how she got there, and Bale trusting Renn was not believable without something major happening. (hide spoiler)] With-reservations: demon possession, terrible illness and death, hallucinations, violence, murder, betrayal

    The kids and I are still listening to this together, but I went ahead and finished it while I was working. It is more of the same excellent reading by Ian McKellan and a new adventure for Torac, Renn and Wolf. Only, this time they start out traveling separately with dangers at every turn. I love the perspective of Wolf and how he uses words like "the fast wet" for a river or "the bright beast that bites hot" for fire.

Torac, for all his gifts and power, is still growing up. He has the uncanny knack for getting captured for wrong assumptions of his character. It keeps things interesting while the mystery of the soul eaters is slowly unfolding. The forest is still a major character in itself, but a new terrain is introduced along with the people who live off of the coastal islands. Torac has much to learn about the sea, but he gets the ultimate lesson when he discovers a new gift.

    "Spirit Walker" by Michelle Paver I read this book for 15 points for the challenge called "Fight Procrastination". I love this book because in the beginning it starts to almost review and refresh your mind about the last book in the series and not very many book do that. This book is about a young man named Torak and his friends trying to fight himself? it's hard to ex[plain -hes trying to figure out whats wrong with him and get whatever it is out of him without hurting himself.

I also like this book because it isn't your regular fictional book but its still interesting. I gave this book five stars because like I said before its not just a regular fictional book but is very interesting. I don't recommend reading this book if you haven't read the first one because if you skip to the second one you will be lost.

    Some other reviewers have said that this 2nd book in the series started off slowly. I disagree. In this installment Torak, Wolf, and Renn continue to battle the Soul Eaters. This time they have set a terrible sickness upon the clans and Torak is desperate to find the cure. His search leads him out of the Forest and across the Sea to the Seal Clan where he learns a devastating truth about himself and his kin. I loved this book almost as much as the first.

It's full of action, intrigue, and desperation. The spirit world continues to play a major role in the series, and this is the one area that confuses my students but truly reflects religious beliefs of the historical period. My only real complaint is that I want to hear more from Wolf. His unique voice really sets this series apart and I want more.

    Like the first one of the series it involves a demon only this time it possess a human not a bear and takes place in the out of doors of ancient times. The wolf, the boy and the girl all are coming together again although this time the wolf and girl are seeking the boy. The author has a great knack of making you feel a part of the whole adventure in the wilderness and with just a touch of nature as people in those days felt it. She is a very good writer and puts you right in the out of doors.

She is a very good writer and puts you right in the out of doors. You don't find many writers as good as this. Yet this is it's own book and not just a repeat of the first, it has its own secrets and goals. It stands pretty much alone but you should read them in order. This has been a great sequel and is one you will love if loved the first one. The climax is just about to happen and it has some surprises. But rather than the forest this settling is more the sea.

    Spirit Walker is just as amazing an installment as the first and totally kept me interested and intrigued. The setting is one of the best parts of this book/series, it is so well researched and presented. This is a MG series that I ADORE and that needs more hype and fans. It's exciting, and twisty, with a fast pace and plot. FREAKING BRILLIANT. Thank you Michelle Paver for writing this series, you are a genius.

    Following on from "Wolf Brother", "Spirit Walker" sees a sickness sweep through the forest taking no prisoners - can Torak find a cure in time? "Spirit Walker" doesn't disappoint and author Michelle Paver doesn't lose her edge in the second Chronicles of Ancient Darkness. I love this series and cannot wait to read the third installment.

    Can't believe I got this book first, yet left it on my bookshelf for 2 years before trying to read it, and once I started, I was hooked. I had to get all the rest of the books due to this one.
