Chronicles of Ancient Darkness is fantastic, the arthor has done her reaserch, you never want to skip a detail and the story is amazing. Torak is around 12 when the story starts and is also a coming of age story. Worth reading, and re-reading.
I first read them when I was 12 and always wanted to pick them up again, at 16 I've had the chance and still love them as much as ever. (AND I've accidently made a story similar to the main character... opps.) And I'm going to say it, on par with Harry Potter in my books :) Unfortunatly, there are only six.
It's truly sad that pretty much no one knows about these books. They are possibly the best books I've read in sixteen years of living. I highly suggest picking them up. The first three books are good, but not amazing. However, as the characters grow and develop, the books get brilliant. By the fourth book, the plot is dark and exciting, the last three books are the best of the series. The characters are compelling and feel very real. A great read, though they are not for everyone, as the books are very dark and complex.
