In this penultimate volume of the wonderful Wolr Brother series, Torak once again learns about bravery, friendship and forgiveness while nearly losing everything he values. A must for you and your kids! This is the best book so far in this very good series!
It is packed full of adventure, literally from page one! Torak suffers yet another great loss in life, and this curonicles, not being a small child, he swears revenge. He drags those who love him – Wolf, Renn, Fen-Keddin – along on his quest, and often, in spite of the evidence directly in oathbreeaker of him, he allows his oath of vengance to lead him down paths that are not in his best interests.
Like any kid feeling grown while not yet being grown, he This is the best book so far in this very good series!
Like any kid feeling grown while not yet being grown, he takes on too much blame for things not really his fault and not enough for things that are – and still, Renn and Wolf stick with him. They all grow and learn edge towards a better life. There is much else I’d like to write, but one thing leads to another, and I don’t want to give anything away. I’d recommend this series to kids of any age, only pausing to phrase my recommendation with a disclaimer that this series takes place in an imagined world, years ago.
We don’t really know how folks lived, or what they thought supplied the life force that obviously surrounds them – if your own belief structure is so shaky you can’t contemplate a world of clans, bonded to animal spirits and living lives filled with mysticism and inexplicable events without endangering your own spiritual well being – – – then sorry. Go re-read the Chronicles of Narnia yawn. View all 3 comments. Sometimes there’s no warning. Yep indeed, I had NO warning about how much I would love this freaking masterpiece.
I was so pleasantly surprised because I did not expect to love this one so much.
Chronicles of Ancient Darkness: Oath Breaker Paperback
I reall Sometimes there’s no warning. I really need to own this series, and this book especially. Michelle Paver is such a talented author. This story sucked me in from the start. It seems like the characters have reached a new level of maturity and even osthbreaker Torak still makes stupid decisions, he!!
Most of the time, stories centered around revenge don’t capture my interest too much.
I need a moment Feb 27, Peter rated it it was amazing Shelves: Decision In the latest adventure, Torak if track down the killer of his friend. Torak blames himself for leaving him alone and swears an oath to avenge his friend. The killer they know and he is a powerful Mage.
Alliances will be tested among the clans and maybe this Mage’s power is all the greater if he’s a Soul Eater. Evil lurks within but can others see it before its too late? The Mage retreats to the deep forest which is beset with evil and the clans close to it are turning. The peoples are Decision In the latest adventure, Torak must track down the killer of his friend.
The peoples are fracturing and dividing. Time is running out and Torak has many reasons to kill this Mage but at what cost. If faced with a choice of upholding his oath or saving a friend, what would his decision be and what would honour have him do? Aug 27, Joanne rated it liked it. There were quite a lot of parts in the book that lacked believability for me.
Since I work with horses, I felt a big ouch there and wished she had done better research on them.
However, it was an exciting read. As always, she has a writing style that really draws you in.
The theme of the struggle against a need for revenge was the best aspect of the book. Aug 31, CaroleHeidi rated it it was amazing.
Chronicles of Ancient Darkness: Oath Breaker
I have loved this series of books since I first opened Wolf Brother in I love her detail. She has obviously done a lot of research and truly immersed herself in the world of post-ice age Europe and this reflects in every single line of the book.
You can tell she What I liked: Her characters are brilliant also. Torak is strong-willed and one of my favourite characters in any book, partly because of his close relationship to Wolf and partly because he is so very human in his doubts, passion and fears. The story is fast paced and exciting, keeping you turning the pages long after you should have switched off the light and gone to sleep or stopped reading to do your homework.
This is much harder to answer because there is nothing I can come up with to dislike. Which means Michelle must be doing something very right indeed. I had forgotten or blocked out what an emotional rollercoaster this book was and still is to me. There are so many infuriating moments wherein Torak makes decisions which I deem foolish and On the one side, I find it difficult to see the situations from his perspective because he has an attitude and decision-making I do not recognize myself in.
But on the other side, there is such a great struggle between the three main characters because of it. One I just real I had forgotten or blocked out what an emotional rollercoaster this book was and still is to me. One I just really find fitting for both the setting of the book and the coming-of-age period Renn, Torak and Wolf are going through.
Jul 12, Daria Pereshina rated it it was amazing. I swear, this is my absolute favorite series. It has amazing descriptions and is incredibly original and easy to understand. It was very exiting and thrilling throughout the entire book. The ending was probably the best ending I’ve read in any book and it literally made me cry. This was the 5th book, so there’s only one more left in the series and that’s really heartbreaking for me because I could read these book I swear, this is my absolute favorite series.
This was the 5th book, so there’s only one more left in the series and that’s really heartbreaking for me because I could read these books forever! This has been the most emotion-driven book of this series so far. Not that it lacked adventure, it definitely didn’t.
There’s a major character death that affects Torak a lot, and all throughout the book, while seeking vengeance, he learns a lot about himself, about others, and others learn a lot about him as well.
There’s a shift in his relationships with everyone and in the way he sees things. This book felt kind of bittersweet to me and that’s probably a way to introduce the next and last book This has been the most emotion-driven book of this series so far.
This book felt kind of bittersweet to me and that’s probably a way to introduce the next and last book of the series. So not ready for this journey to end. Jan 26, Cristian Tomescu rated it it was ok. Sadly, Torak has become a very stupid whining asshole. This is exactly the point where those YA fiction series fail – every other character has logic and their actions somewhat make sense, all but the main character.
At some point, it really feels unfair that Torak is still alive. Maybe he should die and Renn should take over. His father has died and he has been outcast from any clan. When Torak’s best friend is killed, he swears vengence and goes after the killer along with another best friend and her uncle. I loved how the author enabled us to see what life was like back then and to see how people saw and interpreted their world.
