About the Author
Born in Malawi to a Belgian mother and a father who ran the tiny 'Nyasaland Times', Michelle Paver moved to the UK when she was three. She grew up in Wimbledon and, following a Biochemistry Degree from Oxford, she became a partner in a City law firm. Eventually, she gave up her career in law to follow her long-held dream of becoming a writer. Successfully published as an adult author of historical fiction, CHRONICLES OF ANCIENT DARKNESS are her first - brilliant - books for children.
These books are wonderful examples of how children's books at their best are motored by brilliant, seamless plotting. There is no waste- everything is taut, clean, efficient... There is a beautifully realised sense of an organic culture depicted in these books, and good and evil are measured in relation to how much these characters respect their environment * DAVID MOHAN WORDPRESS BLOG * A literary treat for any young reader looking for something slightly different from the mass of children's releases * HACKWRITERS.COM * "Whatever the individual judges thought about fantasy before they began Ghost Hunter... they were immediately captivated by Michelle's brilliantly created world, her wonderfully dramatic story and her powerful story telling. * LOVEREADING4KIDS Julia Eccleshare chair of Guardian Children's Fiction Prize Award 2010 * GHOST HUNTER is the final installment in Michelle Paver's wonderfulChronicles of Ancient Darkness series. These books should definitely be in every school library as they offer fantastic insights and terrific storytelling of a time long gone. * KIDSREADS * ...the themes of friendship and sacrifice are strong, and the descriptions of hunting, tracking and living in the world of six thousand years ago are as vivid and as interesting as ever... I'm going to miss the Forest and the clans now that the series is over. The Chronicles of Ancient Darkness are aimed at younger teens but I still love them aged nearly-sixteen, and I don't think I'll outgrow them any times soon. * SCOTTISH BOOK TRUST * The final part of the brilliant Chronicles of Ancient Darkness... The saga of dark versus light is told with Paver's rigourous pace and brilliant attention to the detail of the Torak's world * THE BOOKSELLER * The finale is a climax as intense as Tolkien's fall of Mordor, with demonic dogs, fiendish one-time children, and Soul-Eaters summoned from beyond the grave. * THE INDEPENDENT *
