This is an auction for WOLF BROTHER by Michelle Paver.

"A giant bear possessed by a demon fatally wounds Torak's father, who makes his son swear that he will find the Mountain of the World Spirit, many "daywalks" from where they have been hunting in the forest. The spirit, his father says, offers the only hope to defeat the bear, which will become invincible if not stopped. So begins Torak's quest, undertaken in the company of an orphaned wolf cub. After members of the Raven Clan capture the boy and wolf, Torak learns that he is prophesied to crush the Shadow, the overriding evil that is trying to take over the land. This is fantasy adventure on a grand scale, with a wealth of wilderness lore and convincing characterizations."
- Booklist (US)

"Set 6000 years ago, this fast-paced adventure delves into a world of spirits and mysticism not often seen in children's literature. Torak, 12, witnesses his father's attack by a giant, demon-possessed bear and promises to find his way to the Mountain of the World Spirit. Before dying, his father instructs him to avoid other men and tells him that his guide will find him. Sure enough, Torak is soon adopted by a wolf cub, also recently orphaned, with whom he is able to communicate. The bear continues to terrorize the forest, but Torak is able to avoid it with Wolf's help. They are captured by the Wolf clan, who believes that Torak is the Listener, and will rid the forest of the bear when he fulfills a prophecy by delivering three lost artefacts to the mountain. He must solve an obscure riddle to find the artefacts and traverse dangerous lands, all the while evading the evil bear. This impressive British import, the first in a series, is intriguing and believable."
