After decades of writing the Wolf Brother series, Michelle Paver finally completes the beloved story of Torak, Renn, and Wolf with ‘Wolf Bane!’ Nine books and two false ends later, Michelle has created a story that has outlasted time. Torak’s story is one so unique and so full of depth that nothing else can match it.

Throughout all nine books, Paver provides readers with a beautifully detailed look into the indigenous cultures she has researched. The adventure stories teach respect for land, respect for beliefs, and open mindedness.

I loved chatting with Michelle and learning about all of her incredible experiences and how these experiences have shaped her outlook on life and writing. She has so wonderfully depicted spirituality and ancient cultures. My colleague Lottie is 90% positive she could make a bow and arrow in the apocalypse thanks to this series.

More on Wolf Bane: “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.”
