Paver, Michelle. Wolf brother

Paver, Michelle. Wolf brother [Chronicles of Ancient Darkness #1] HarperCollins, 2005 [0-06-072825-6]
It is 6,000 years ago and Torak and his father, who long ago left their clan, are attacked by a demon-possessed bear. His father's dying words are to the Mountain of the World Spirit and kill the bear. Torak, a 12-year-old boy is on his own and knows little of his background. He befriends a wolf cub and realizes that he can communicate with the wolf. This starts a perilous adventure where the pair is captured by another clan and Torak finds more of his background. The epic journey is told with wonderful excitement. Unfortunately the climax battle will be less than satisfactory for students looking for a violent fight scene. This 295 page book is a wonderful adventure story taking place in ancient times. I can't wait to read the next one.
