For fans of Michelle Paver’s Chronicles of Ancient Darkness and the Spirit Animals series comes this exciting new Stone Age series, perfect for middle readers.

Tarin longs to be a hunter, but his twisted leg means he is feared and bullied. After a disastrous mishap, Tarin is forced to leave his family and travel alone across wild, unknown land to save the Mammoth Clan. Battling the hostile and savage Boar Clan, a deadly illness and treacherous terrain with twins Kaija and Luuka and their wolf cubs, Tarin realises that if they are all to survive he must conquer his greatest fear – his true self – and embrace the magic that is hiding within him.

Reviews

Nan, Isabelle Carmody’s editor, who did a reader’s report for us, wrote: "Here are the two reports on each of the first two books of the Stone Age series. I loved them. I really hope you decide to publish them, and pass them on to me for editing!”

This thrilling, old-fashioned adventure story takes us back to the Stone Age…[With] plenty of action and thrilling brushes with prehistoric creatures… I look forward to following Tarin’s journey as the series continues.
