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.

It outclasses CALL OF THE WILD and THE JUNGLE BOOK in the pace of its plot, its sympathetically imagined characters, and it's details of doings' - THE INDEPENDENT'Fiction for children really doesn't get much better than this' - BOOKBAG.COM'OATH BREAKER will keep you on the edge of your seat' - RED HOUSE on Oath Breaker
