  1. 7. WOLFBANE

    The Stone Age Forests, 4000 BC. Evil stalks the land. Only twelve-year-old Torak and his wolf-cub companion can defeat it. Their journey together takes them through deep forests, across giant glaciers, and into dangers they never imagined. International phenomenon Michelle Paver will discuss Wolfbane, the thrilling finale to the multi-million selling series Chronicles of Ancient Darkness and will tell tales of her own adventures in the Arctic and northern Scandinavia, every bit as exciting as those of the characters in her books. Not content with simply studying the archaeology of the Mesolithic peoples and the belief systems of the Sami of Lapland and other traditional peoples, she has swum with wild killer whales, spent time with wolves and peered in the mouth of a brown bear, all in the name of research.
