Having loved the Chronicles of Darkness series, I was eager to read more from Michelle Paver. I wasn't disappointed. This world is entirely different from that of the first series, but it is just as accurately drawn. I couldn't put it down. I made sure I picked up the second one so I could straight on with the story. Addendum: Curiously enough, I picked this up to reread with a view to using it for Chatterbooks. I still enjoyed it on a personal level, but reading it with my group in mind made me very aware of just how violent and horrific parts of this story are. I committed to using it with the group, but I was a bit concerned how some of them would react to it. I'm tempted to say that this should either be a teen title, or carry a warning.
