Publisher Comments:

A thrilling story of friendship, survival, and the need to belong.

For two moons Torak has hidden a terrible secret—and now it is revealed. He bears the mark of the Soul-Eater, and must pay the price. Cast out from the clans, he is alone and on the run: cut off from his best friend, Renn, and his beloved pack-brother, Wolf.

He flees to the haunted reed-beds of Lake Axehead, where he is hunted by the Otter Clan, taunted by the Hidden People, and, as soul-sickness claims him, he falls prey to an even greater menace. Tormented by secrets and broken trust, he uncovers a deception that will turn his world upside down.

Synopsis:

Filled with riveting adventure and heartrending scenes, "Outcast" is another thrilling story of friendship, survival, and the powerful need to belong.

About the Author

Michelle Paver was born in central Africa but went to England as a child. After earning a degree in biochemistry from Oxford University, she became a partner in a London law firm but eventually gave that up to write full-time.

The Chronicles of Ancient Darkness series came from Michelle's lifelong passion for animals, anthropology, and the distant past—as well as an encounter with a large bear in a remote valley in Southern California. To research the books, Michelle has traveled to Finland, Greenland, Sweden, Norway, Arctic Canada, and the Carpathian Mountains. She has slept on reindeer skins, swum with wild killer whales, and gotten nose-to-nose with polar bears—and, of course, wolves. The first five books have been made into widely acclaimed audiobooks, read by Ian McKellen.

Torak carries the evil cult marking, SOUL EATER, and is revealed and he is cast out from the Raven clan. He's alone, forsaken and suffers from the SOUL SICKNESS. He is hunted and on the run until Torak stumbles upon unknown territory, the haunted area of Lake Axehead, where he is menaced by the Hidden People. Other threats lurk nearby and his conquest with the Soul-Eaters is far from over... As Torak fights for his life, he uncovers a deception too awful to handle, one that shakes him to the core and shatters his world. I encourage any reader of any age to read this book because it is action-packed, emotional and is fast-paced with an abundant amount of detail. Michelle Paver did an excellent job on making it feel as if you were standing along side Torak.
