Set 6,000 years ago, this adventure book follows 12 year old Torak as he seeks revenge for his father's murder. His father has been mauled by a giant, demon possessed bear and Torak must make his way to the Mountain of the World Spirit to find the demon. Torak is befriended by a wolf cub who leads Torak on his way. When Torak is captured by the Wolf clan, they become convinced that he is the Listener who will rid the forest of the evil. Will he be able to fulfill the prophecy?
“…The forest exploded.
Ravens screamed. Pines cracked. And out of the dark beneath the trees surged
a deeper darkness: a huge rampaging menace in bear form. Suddenly death
was upon them. A frenzy of claws. A welter of sound to make the ears bleed.
In a heartbeat, the creature had smashed their shelter to splinters. In
a heartbeat, it had ripped a ragged wound in his father’s side. Then it
was gone, melting into the Forest as silently as mist.
If you like fantasy series and wilderness survival stories, you will love “Wolf Brother. “ (Bernie Farrell, firstname.lastname@example.org, librarian)
