    Wolf Brother is the first book in a series the Chronicles of Ancient Darkness. It tells the story of a boy named Torak who has to journey to the Mountain of World Spirit to kill a demon bear. His father is dead, and it is up to him to fulfil the prophecy.

    I like this book because of how it shows the development of Torak, a hunter-gatherer, throughout the story; how he develops from a boy to a man. I also like the relationship between Torak and his wolf cub. The story has many incidents which made me feel nervous, and I loved experiencing that thrill. I like the magical elements in the story that make it so different from reality.

    I could relate to Torak at several parts of the book, and his emotions while facing the different obstacles in different parts of the book. I could also relate to the chapters from the cub’s point of view and his confusion as to why the grown-ups did things which did not make sense. The only thing I would change is the bitter sweet ending when Torak hears Wolf howling together with other wolves, and he promises to return before he sets off down the mountain alone. I did not want them to be separated.

    The style of the author is rather simple to understand so almost all age groups can read this fantasy book. I would rate this book a ⅘ and I would definitely recommend it to others to read.
