"Wolf Brother" by Michelle Paver
I have read a lot of good children's books lately but this is one of the best. It is set around mans hunter gatherer period and mentions a lot of old superstitions. It deals with magic but not in a Harry Potter sense. It's exciting from page one and doesn't let up. I can see why there are talks of making a film from the book. If you are looking for something a little bit different but still like the magic theme then this is the book for you.
The second book, "Spirit Walker", is out just now but I will be waiting for the paperback. I have the first one in paperback and so I want to keep them all the same. I think most readers are like that. It's so hard to stick to though when you really want to know what happens. Not to worry, I have plenty of other things to read while I wait.
