Viper’s Daughter is another triumph from ‘creator of legends’ Michelle Paver (Chronicles of Ancient Darkness). For two summers, Torak and Renn have been living happily in the forest with their pack-brother Wolf, until one day Torak discovers that Renn has gone. Having tracked her northwards Torak and Wolf discover that Renn has gone beyond the far North to the Edge of the World. Can they find her, and what will they see when they do? Is Renn a threat to Torak, and is this why she has run away?

This is the seventh book in the award-winning series by Michelle Paver, which began with Wolf Brother. Viper’s Daughter takes readers back to the Stone Age world with a new adventure. This book follows Torak, Renn and Wolf as they travel North and discover danger, friendship, and how to survive.

Viper’s Daughter is a great stand-alone novel for children who have yet to discover these heroes and would be just as welcome to those who have already read previous adventures. It would support work on Stone Age as well as themes such as friendship and family. It would be a great class novel or one for the class bookshelf, and I am sure would inspire reluctant readers to try the others in the series.
