A thrilling story of friendship, survival, and the need to belong.

For two moons Torak has hidden a terrible secret—and now it is revealed. He bears the mark of the Soul-Eater, and must pay the price. Cast out from the clans, he is alone and on the run: cut off from his best friend, Renn, and his beloved pack-brother, Wolf.

He flees to the haunted reed-beds of Lake Axehead, where he is hunted by the Otter Clan, taunted by the Hidden People, and, as soul-sickness claims him, he falls prey to an even greater menace. Tormented by secrets and broken trust, he uncovers a deception that will turn his world upside down.

A thrilling read

Outcast is a thrilling story of survival, friendship and the need to belong. In this book Torak has hidden the mark of the Soul Eaters for two moons and when Aki of Boar Clan sees it, Torak is casted out by all of the clans. On the run, Torak must survive by himself while being hunted by the Clans and the Soul Eaters. He flees to Lake Axehead where he is hunted by the Otter Clan, taunted by the Hidden People and falls to soul-sickness when he falls prey to an even greater menace. Full of secrets and broken trusts, Outcast is the best of the Chronicles of Ancient Darkness that I have read so far.

SoulSick

Reader reviewed by EshInoBi

This is by far my favourite books in this series. Torak is torn from Raven Clan and feels he cannot trust anyone. It is revealed that he bears the mark of the soul eaters, and he is given a while to try to escape, but then after that, everyone who sees him, has to kill him, or risk-get-execution. Torak becomes savage and doesn't recognize anything. He even starts to not be able to understand Wolf, his wolf friend that he's been friends-his guide- ever since Torak's father died. Torak runs far, avoiding others trying to kill him. One person swore to his father to kill him, and Torak doesn't know what he's become when he ignores him dying. Renn heals him, and he realizes that if he had told Renn earlier, they could have cut out the mark, but it wasn't the season anymore. I felt really bad for Torak at this part. Healed by Renn, they arrive at a cave while Renn is out. Seshru, Renn's mother, tries to kill them, including Renn. In the end, Finn-Kedin adopts him, saying that killing Torak will not do anything to help their issue with the soul eaters.

I love this book, and I fell in love with Torak's life! I couldn't believe that anyone could be cast out for just bearing a mark, I found that cruel, for it wasn't his fault! You'll enjoy this book as I did, everyone!
