Wolf Brother (Chronicles of Ancient Darkness #1)
Small boy from stone-age tribe has been brought up alone with his father (and wolves). But father gets killed by mysterious demon bear and boy has to go to the fabled Mountain of the Spirit World to get help to destroy the bear. Aided by wolf cub friend/guide and initially distrustful but ultimately friendly young girl from another tribe.
I have been looking for this in the library (eventually went to Theresiastraat library for it) for ages as read great reviews of it on Amazon but maybe the build-up was too great. OK I suppose, but not as exciting as I'd hoped, nor as atmospheric. Lots to learn about edible berries in northern forests though. Might not bother with the other two in the series now.
