Twelve-year-old Torak and his guide, a wolf cub, set out on a dangerous journey to fulfill an oath the boy made to his dying father to destroy a demon-possessed bear that threatens all the clans.
In a world 6,000 years younger, Torak and his father, estranged members of the Wolf Clan, hunt the Forest. After an unnaturally large, demon-possessed bear brutally attacks his father, the 12-year-old is suddenly alone, left with only the obscure knowledge that, with the help of a guide, he must seek out the Mountain of the World Spirit. And above all, he must keep away from people. Filled with despair and confusion, Torak is joined by Wolf, a young pup whose family died in a flood. Torak discovers he can communicate with Wolf, and the two set off on an epic journey in search of the key to saving their land from the great evil that roams it. This is the first book in the CHRONICLES OF ANCIENT DARKNESS trilogy.
