Amanda Craig on Outcast by Michelle Paver

Michelle Paver�s hero Torak does not so much illustrate The Dangerous Book for Boys as live it. His adventures in The Chronicles of Ancient Darkness series have been thrilling from the first page, and he has become a great hero for the new generation. Orphaned in Wolf Brother when a gigantic bear killed his father, Torak befriended a wolf cub and was adopted by his friend Renn�s clan. Outcast is the fourth novel in the series, and by now Torak and Renn are teenagers.
