It is early spring, a turbulent, perilous time of sudden storms, frozen river fractures and drifting ice. Fleeing from a demon intent on devouring his souls, Wolf is swept out to Sea far from the Forest and his pack. The ocean too teems with danger: sea wolves, sharks and hunters of the deep, and the demon is gaining ground. Torak and Renn must race to save their pack-brother, battling the harsh, icy waves and merciless torrents. If they can't find Wolf in time, the bond between them will be severed for ever...

A book that leaves you breathless. If I could give this more than 5*, I would!  The ancient clans seek peace, but at what cost? A choked howl gives way to a deafening silence that echoes around the forest. Pack brother Torak and his mage mate Renn answer the call, but will they be too late? An ice demon on the hunt, for one soul - Wolf's. Spring is near. The ice is starting to melt. Will Torak and Renn be able to save Wolf in time?

Wolfbane is the final in the best-selling, award-winning series that started with Wolf Brother. Michelle Paver draws the reader into an immersive page-turning stone-age inspired fantasy world. Separated from his pack, Wolf is stranded on an iceberg floating far away from home and safety. Renn and Torak plan a rescue, but it is fraught with peril at every turn. They must defeat the ice demon once and for all, but at what cost? Slaying the demon would result in an eternity of being an outcast: from each other and their clan.

Full of unexpected twists: Wolfbane inhales the reader into a fast-paced adventure.
