On the Seal's Island he stumbles into a world utterly unlike his own. Here life moves to the rhythms of the sea, the Seals build shelters from whale bones, and skim the waves in fast, beautiful kayaks. And here Torak is welcomed by the kindly Seal Mage, Teneris, and kinsman, Bale.
But all is not as it seems - Torak must keep his wits about him to judge who might be friend or foe.
As in 'Wolf Brother', Michelle Paver's sheer passion for her story set in a world of myth and natural magic, shines through in this skillfully woven, exciting and brilliantly satisfying second installment of the Chronicles of Ancient Darkness.
