For two summers, Torak and Renn have been living in the Forest with their faithful pack-brother, Wolf. But their happiness is shattered when Renn realises Torak is in danger – and she’s the threat.
The seventh in the award-winning Wolf Brother series featuring artwork from the original designers John Fordham and Geoff Taylor, Viper’s Daughter plunges us back into a world of exhilarating adventure where nature is honoured, where demons thrive, and where the bonds of friendship are all.
For fans of the original Wolf Brother series and a whole new generation of readers.
Viper’s Daughter by Michelle Paver is out now, published by Zephyr, an imprint of Head of Zeus, priced £12.99 in hardback.
With thanks to Megan at Ed Public Relations for providing a paperback proof to review for this blog tour. An already well established story to continue with Viper’s Daughter, I have not read the previous books, so this was new to me.
The story starts off fast paced and engaging which was helpful, as I was not introduced to the characters beforehand. There are various characters that play an important role within the story line. Some parts of the story I did get a little confused, as I’m sure you if you have read previous books, you might have a better idea of the past history between certain characters, however it didn’t impair my enjoyment of the story.
Within the story you meet various clans and characters, some wolf, some human and other kinds, this brings depth to the story.
Torak, Renn and Wolf are the main characters, their relationship and their adventures they have together are fascinating, being dangerous and testing at times. When Renn decides to go off, Torak has to follow, this is where the adventure begins.
The storyline is very engaging and the descriptions of the surrounding scenery is one to enjoy and loose yourself in, the book itself only being 238 pages long keeps you engrossed right up to the end! You can see how much research has gone into the writing of this story.
I would definitely recommend reading this story, it is an ideal read for any age.
You can purchase it here from Amazon.
