Oath Breaker (Chronicles of Ancient Darkness, #5) Reviews

  • Cindy

    This is the best book so far in this very good series! It is packed full of adventure, literally from page one! Torak suffers yet another great loss in life, and this time, not being a small child, he swears revenge. He drags those who love him - Wolf, Renn, Fen-Keddin - along on his quest, and often, in spite of the evidence directly in front of him, he allows his oath of vengance to lead him down paths that are not in his best interests. Like any kid feeling grown while not yet being grown, he [...]

    Sometimes there's no warning. Nothing at all. Yep indeed, I had NO warning about how much I would love this freaking masterpiece.Never mind what I said about Outcast being my favorite, THIS IS MY FAVORITE FROM THIS SERIES. (well that is unless the last one turns out even more amazing than this one, which will be very difficult.)OMG I AM FANGIRLING. I was so pleasantly surprised because I did not expect to love this one so much. And because I did not have any expectations it BLEW ME AWAY. I reall [...]

  • Joanne

    This wasn't the best of Michelle Paver's books in the Chronicles of Ancient Darkness series. There were quite a lot of parts in the book that lacked believability for me. Since I work with horses, I felt a big ouch there and wished she had done better research on them. However, it was an exciting read. As always, she has a writing style that really draws you in. The theme of the struggle against a need for revenge was the best aspect of the book.

  • Daria Pereshina

    I swear, this is my absolute favorite series. It has amazing descriptions and is incredibly original and easy to understand. It was very exiting and thrilling throughout the entire book. It really makes you feel a lot of emotions such as happy/relieved, scared, and sad. The ending was probably the best ending I've read in any book and it literally made me cry. This was the 5th book, so there's only one more left in the series and that's really heartbreaking for me because I could read these book [...]

  • Iman

    This has been the most emotion-driven book of this series so far. Not that it lacked adventure, it definitely didn't.There's a major character death that affects Torak a lot, and all throughout the book, while seeking vengeance, he learns a lot about himself, about others, and others learn a lot about him as well. There's a shift in his relationships with everyone and in the way he sees things. This book felt kind of bittersweet to me and that's probably a way to introduce the next and last book [...]

  • Cristian Tomescu

    Sadly, Torak has become a very stupid whining asshole.This is exactly the point where those YA fiction series fail - every other character has logic and their actions somewhat make sense, all but the main character.At some point, it really feels unfair that Torak is still alive.Maybe he should die and Renn should take over.

  • CaroleHeidi

    What I liked: Where to start? I have loved this series of books since I first opened Wolf Brother in 2004. Michelle Paver’s beautiful writing creates an ancient world that instantly draws you in and makes you believe in it so much you can almost feel the breeze and hear the Forest leaves rustling around you.I love her detail. She has obviously done a lot of research and truly immersed herself in the world of post-ice age Europe and this reflects in every single line of the book. You can tell s [...]

    CHRONICLE OF ANCIENT DARKNESS - BOOK 5: OATH BREAKER by Michelle PaverOath Breaker is about a boy who lived in prehistoric times and had to learn to survive on his own. His father has died and he has been outcast from any clan. When Torak's best friend is killed, he swears vengence and goes after the killer along with another best friend and her uncle. I loved how the author enabled us to see what life was like back then and to see how people saw and interpreted their world. It was fascinating h [...]

    "Sometimes there's no warning. Nothing at all."I am so in love with these books. I don't even know what to say about this, the 5th book in the "Chronicles of Ancient Darkness". AMAZING once again. I was so sad to see Bale go, but the ending of this book made up for so much. It really brought a tear to my eye. How special the relationships formed throughout this series have been. Wolf and Torak and Renn…just incredible. The chemistry between all the characters and their individual personalities [...]

  • Maythavee

    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 hilari [...]

  • ijul (yuliyono)

    Saia mencoba maklum bahwa seri Torak tetaplah seri untuk anak-anak (khususnya), maka ketika setiap bukunya tidak diakhiri dengan "brutal" sebagaimana yang saia imajinasikan (terjadi pertarungan seru penuh darah untuk menumpas satu demi satu para Pemangsa Arwah), saia tetap mengacungkan jempol karena Michelle sukses memberi nyawa pada Torak dan Renn untuk survive di dunia/bumi yang masih perawan itu. Menyaksikan petualangan Torak, jadi ingat suku Na'vi di film bombastis James Cameron, Avatar, yan [...]

  • Cheryl Landmark

    Just like the first four books in this series, Michelle Paver keeps the action and adventure fast-paced and gripping. We follow Torak into the Deep Forest where danger threatens him at every turn as he seeks to fulfill his oath of vengenance against one of the Soul Eaters. Ms. Paver's beautiful writing is such that we can feel his despair and anger and pain as though it were our own. I think that what I like most about this series is the incredible bond between Torak and Wolf. They are pack-brot [...]

  • Larissa Rowan

    I wanted to give this book 10 stars!!! Oh my godTHIS BOOK IS AMAZING! I am crying, my heart has exploded and I am so in love with this series it hurtsUnlike Outcast the storyline took a very different turn, this book was much darker and much more intense than any previous books, but this is what made it so good, as well as the countless adorable moments! I cannot recommend this series enough to people!! It's just got to be one of the best children's series ever and more people NEED to read it, I [...]

  • miaaa

    Mengingat lamanya jarak buku yang satu ke berikutnya terbit di Indonesia, hampir lupa tokoroth itu apa dan Torak adalah seorang klanaroh. Gimana nasib seri ini yah masih akan diterjemahkan tidak? Kalau tidak mari berburu ebook *lirik Ijul*ps. kok untuk ganti edisi sekarang lebih rempong yah hehe *curcol*

  • Ceria

    (2008) Menanti versi Indonesianya Udah penasaran nih ma kelanjutan kisah Torak dan Renn melawan Soul Eater. Kejutan apalagi yang diberikan Paver dalam buku kelimanya ini ya??!!(2010) Gila versi English-nya keluar tahun 2008, versi Indonesia-nya baru muncul Februari 2010 Hmm tapi menurutku yg kelima ini agak kurang seru n kurang asyik dibanding yg sebelumnya Kenapa ya??

  • Roth

    These books are so enjoyable. The writing is excellent, characterisation likewise, and the world is just splendid. I wasn't particularly wild about the hints in this book of Impending Romance (and even the wolf has a romantic subplot, gah), but other than that it was fantastic.

  • Shirley Solano Larrauri

    Still waiting for Torak and Renn to kiss

  • Luisa Villani

    Okay, I give up. I made it through four of these. The first one, Wolf Brother was good. I especially like the parts of the story told from the wolf's POV. As the series go on, they get progressively darker, and not in a Harry Potter-ish "we are battling a great evil with friends standing beside us" type of way. Well, maybe the writer is suffering from Rowling-itis. Not every children's book makes a great young adult series. All I know is, I could not hand books 2-5 to any of the ten to 12 year o [...]

  • Bella

    4 of my general criteria; probably 3.5 of the standards I had unknowingly set for the series. Having watched Paver's interviews in which she spoke of the reception for the final book (book six) in the series, though, I have hopes that it will merit five stars from me. Need a break though, as I usually find myself needing one between each instalment as I empathize with Wolf, Torak, and all main characters aplenty.

  • Julie Anne

    This book is the 5th book in the chronicles of ainchient darkness series. When Torak's cousin died, he vows to avenge him. When the time came he had to choose between his best friend or his oath. This book is easy to read and it is fantasy. I would recomend this book to someone who loves magic and spirits.

  • Scott

    Really enjoyable 5th book in the Chronicles of Ancient Darkness saga. Probably one of the best books in the series too. Looking forward to the last book but it's going to be hard saying goodbye to Torak, Renn and Wolf!

  • Markie

    Family fortunesI am still enjoying the series though less wolf involvement the development of the pack is an anticipated evolution. I look forward to how the next book unfolds with some interesting expectations.

  • Michael McCoy

    This book ended well. I loved that everyone that was important throughout this entire series is still alive and i love how many twists and turns they take and they are absolutely thrilling. I love this series and its characters. This series is amazing and i love it.

  • Cassie

    The darkest installment yet, but so good!I love Ian McKellan!

  • Felicia

    Nice story. Some things are little quick to occur, I thought. But overall, just as good as the previous four.

  • Zach

    Hes sad, but hes a great survivor and man does he hunt down hes enemies.

  • Katka Chudá

    Príbeh, ako vždy - krásny. Na začiatku zomrel Bale, čo mi bolo trochu ľúto, pretože sme ho nestihli bližšie spoznať. Torak sa rozhodne, že ho pomstí. Niekedy to ale naozaj preháňal. Napríklad ked nechal Renn samu v Hlbokom lese, plnom "bláznov". Tiež ked rozhneval tých dvoch ľudí z klanu Aurochov a tuším Jeleňov alebo lesných koní. Ale vráťme sa k príbehu. Torak chce Thiazziho prenasledovať sám, ale má smolu :D. Finn-Kedinn s Renn by ho len tak nenechali. Vydávaj [...]
