Summary

The grand finale to the prize-winning adventure series that has changed the lives of millions. 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 forever....

Run wild with Wolf Brother for the last time in a Stone Age world we all want to be part of.

Listen to Wolfbane as a stand-alone adventure or as part of the well-loved series.

Wonderful!

Wonderful story and perfect performance! I enjoyed every second of this final book in the series. The author's notes that follow the story and the addition of a conversation between author and narrator hint at the depth of research behind the world of Torak and Wolf. Be sure to read all the books in this series!

Feels like saying goodbye to a loved-one. A beautiful sadness.

I’ve been reading and re-reading, and listening and re-listening to these books since I was 10 years old. I’m now 23 and it’s all finally over. My favourite book series of all time and my go-to recommendation. My escape. Thank you Michelle and Ian for such a wonderful 13 years, it’s been an absolute joy. I’ll now continue my crying over the end of an era.

Yet another fantastic book in the series !

An exciting continuation of the story of Torak, Ren & Wolfs pursuit of the demon which even brought us to tears (my mother) or nearly to tears (me). Beautifully read once more by Sir Ian McKellen. He really brings the story to life with his mage like voice. Thank you Michelle for all the enjoyment you've brought us whilst listening and hiking at the same time!

4.5/5

Audiobook narrated by Ian McKellen.

I have a massive book hangover. My love of this series is hardly a secret and to build up to this I reread (listened) to the entire series. Along the way I remembered my love for Torak, Wolf, Renn, Fin Kedinn and the rest of the cast of this amazing series.

- I don't know if it's really possible to miss a time or place you've never actually been in but I miss this world like an ache in my bones. Whilst the story is wonderful, the world is beautifully portrayed and some of my favourite bits are where everyday tasks these ancient people are described and talked about. The depth of detail about nature and the lives of the "taillesses" has always left me in wonder and Wolfbane is no exception.

- The character development in this book is interesting and I like that some ground that hasn't really been touched before is mentioned. There's a section where a character talks about violence between a couple and threatens to leave if their partner ever lays hands on them again. There's also a very well portrayed same sex relationship and I love that these things were included and so well.

-The story itself was good, if slightly predictable at times and was very emotional at the end. My heart aches that I won't hear about the characters again as I desperately would love to remain with them forever.

Thank you Michelle Paver for this series. As a child and teenager I loved the original books. As an adult, revisiting them felt like coming home and was incredibly comforting during difficult times. These new stories have been wonderful and thank you for letting me metaphorically join the pack again. I look forward to when my kid is old enough that I can share these amazing books with them.

Absolutely stunning conclusion

I first came across Wolf Brother (the first book in this series) when I was just coming into my teenage years. I was immediately entranced by this world Paver had created and now close to 30 years old I finally got to listen to the last book in this series and was brought to tears. It has been an amazing journey and I do hope that one day she makes another series much like this one as no matter how old I become I wouldn't hesitate to read more. The narration is stunning, Ian brings the world to life with his voice as he has done with each in the series. There is no way I couldn't give this 5 stars and I recommend anyone new to this series to both read for themselves and listen to the audiobooks as well. You can imagine and feel just how much love, care, and genuine research was put into this series.

Theres something in both my eyes

I finished the 6th (and at the time final) audiobook in the series when I was a teenager, so as an adult I was as apprehensive as I was delighted to learn there’d be an entire sequel trilogy. There’s always a chance revisiting a beloved world will taint the remembered magic.
Happily, I can report that Michelle Paver has more than reignited the prehistoric bright-beast-that-bites-hot inside me; it was a pure joy to return to Torak’s world.
I haven’t read the physical books, but I wouldn’t be surprised if Sir Ian McKellen’s voice and performance is in large part responsible for this continuity of feeling. There is no question these are the characters we knew all those years ago, and any simplicity or repetitiveness inherent to YA writing (which we may have more readily excused in youth) is camouflaged by Sir Ian’s masterful vocal colour.

A small, selfish part of me would have liked to see the writing style mature as its audience has, but the thought of new young readers discovering and devouring all 9 books is too enchanting.

In any case, if you’ve gotten this far with the audiobooks, do not hesitate to pick up Wolf Bane.
After all this time, Michelle and Sir Ian have brought it home - and I am so very grateful.
