Review quote

'Oath Breaker is the fifth book in the Chronicles of Ancient Darkness series by Michelle Paver and is quite brilliant. It is a definite plus to have Sir Ian McKellen read the books who provides so much atmosphere in his rendition of the story...It is an utterly enthralling well written and very visual story that makes it very difficult to turn the audio off because you want to find out the next bit in Toraks revenge quest and will he be successful. An audio book that I highly recommend.' BOOK FIENDS KINGDOM www.bfkbooks.com 'As well as powerful characterisation and heart-thumping plots, they offer fascinating practical details of how life was lived in the Stone Age.' 3 July 2010 -- Christina Hardyment THE TIMESshow more
