Chronicles of Ancient Darkness

Michelle Paver’s Chronicles of Ancient Darkness.  A Boys Read supporter highly recommends Chronicles of Ancient Darkness. She says:

Six books in the series (Wolf Brother, Spirit Walker, Soul Eater, Oath Breaker, Outcast, Ghost Hunter).   My son (a reluctant reader, dyslexic) DEVOURED these books.  Books are set 6000 years in the past in the ancient forests of what is now northern Europe.   Follows Torak – 11 years old when the series begins – and a wolf cub with whom he has a spiritual connection.  The world Torak inhabits is animist, mystical, spiritual and brutal.  Paver meticulously researches all her books and they are brimming with beautiful detail about survival, daily life, ancient customs and religious beliefs.  The people in Torak’s world are intensely connected to the natural world – in all its beauty and danger.   The books are page turners – turned my son into….A READER!

I read them as well and loved them.

Thanks for all you do to support boys literacy!
