Read full description of the books:
I was so disappointed in this book. I was expecting great things from Michelle Paver and yet it just fell flat. I couldn't bring myself to care about Antonia very much, and Patrick was annoyingly passive despite being so nice. (I suppose that's the problem: nice guys rarely stand up for what they want.) The only characters I warmed to were the minor ones of Julian and Cassius.
I didn't really care about Antonia's search to find out who Lycaris was either, since - to the reader - it's not a secret. By the end of the book, my reaction to Tacita's secret was a shrug. I'll admit that scene was heartwarming, but not the huge emotionally moving finale that the blurb promised. In short, this book wasn't much of anything: not a brilliant love story, not an intriguing archaeology mystery, not even an interesting character journey. And that's a pity.

Read information about the authorMichelle Paver was born in Central Africa, but came to England as a child. After gaining a degree in Biochemistry from Oxford University, she became a partner in a City law firm, but eventually gave that up to write full-time.
The hugely successful Chronicles of Ancient Darkness series arose from Michelle's lifelong passion for animals, anthropology and the distant past - as as well as an encounter with a large bear in a remote valley in southern California. To research the books, Michelle has traveled to Finland, Greenland, Sweden, Norway, Arctic Canada and the Carpathian Mountains. She has slept on reindeer skins, swum with wild orca (killer whales), and got nose-to-nose with polar bears - and, of course, wolves.
