"Sent on a preordained prophesy he needs to fulfill, Torak, a 12-year-old just-orphaned boy, finds himself alone in the world with only Wolf, a recently orphaned cub, to guide him. Ian McKellen enchants the listener with an eclectic narration that brings alive the story's action at every turn. The ancient spiritual world and its brethren clan meet to tell the tale of a mystic's experiment gone bad. Although the plot focuses on a formulaic quest, McKellen's storytelling voice evokes a magical world and makes the predictable plot charming. This is the first in the series The Chronicles of Ancient Darkness. It's easy to see that it will be a must-listen series for fans of the world of numina. D.L.M. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine"
