“I continue to love this series. In Oath Breaker, Torak's story focuses on his quest for vengeance. He demonstrates some erratic, angry behavior at first. This really annoyed me, but of course it turns out to be an important element of the story. Michelle Paver never includes loose ends.
I really enjoyed the ending of this book. It is the first in the series with a happy ending, so that was a nice change. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is that these books are beginning to follow a bit of a pattern. It's probably smart that Paver only wrote one more. While this series is incredible, the tale has nearly run its course.”

“Oath Breaker was not disappointing at all. I loved it. (Not a big surprise surely)
Oh Bale. I really liked you. His fate was just horrible. And Torak. My poor Torak. It was hard watching Torak going on the journey to seek revenge. It simply isn’t who he is. We now know more about Torak’s mother and the story behind her medicine horn which was so heart-breaking. I also loved how Renn is admitting that she’s a Mage. It was awesome. Her snarky comments with the Red Deer clan were simply hilarious. And Wolf! When he finally realized that Torak wasn’t actually a wolf. Ugh, my heart hurts. The fight between Thiazzi and Torak was exhilarating. The ending of Oath Breaker was one of the sweetest endings I have read. It made me smile and teary-eyed.
I can’t believe that the next book will be the last book. It’s hard saying goodbye to one of my favourite book series. I’m going to miss Torak, Wolf, Renn, Fin-Kedinn, Rip and Rek so much.

“The fifth book in the Chronicles of Ancient Darkness series. Torak and Renn head for the Deep Forest to kill the Soul Eater Thiazzi who has just killed Torak's kinsman and taken the last piece of the fire opal. But there is a rottenness at the heart of the Deep Forest clans that threatens to create a war that will engulf everyone. Can Torak kill the Oak Mage before it's too late? Can he recover the fire opal? Can he and Renn stop a war between the clans? This is such a good series! I can't wait to see what happens next. ”Iceangel9 wrote this review Sunday, November 13, 2011.

“The problem with too many series is the midway failure. On book #5, one has to wonder if Paver is approaching that point. I am happy to report that on the contrary she seemed thoroughly refreshed and was able to churn out another Torak adventure with heightened plot and emotion.
When his kinsman Bale is murdered, Torak swears an oath of vengeance that leads him into the previously avoided Deep Forest. Here, intense betrayal and twists await him along with what well may be the arc of the series.
Paver keeps up on her stellar storytelling and writing without ever letting the plot suffer. The mysteries of this prehistoric world are powerful and imaginative with clear research leading to a realistic setting. Torak is a remarkable hero and I can only await the last book. ”
