This was an amazing book, although some of the plot is just a little to convenient. (Such as Zolena conveniently having become obese and her and Ayla being buddies) I still love the story for the historical value and am constantly amazed by the authors creativity in trying to recreate what life was like for these people. I am looking forward to the conclusion of this series. Especially since the end of the book ended rather abruptly!

It was a long slow read. I enjoyed it, but never was really into it that much. Not as good as the older books. It was way too long of a time period since the last book.

I love this entire series. The book pulled me in and I didn't want it to end. Ayla is an amazing and smart woman; Jondalar is equally smart and amazing. It was fun to learn about his family. Parts of the book left me happy, parts left me sad, and some left me angry; there was lot's of emotion. I always skim the more detailed, descriptive parts about the land or animals because they seem boring to me. However, the people, their interactions and way of life is fascinating! I'm sorry that I only have one more book to read in this series!

Fifth in the series, this one depicts Jondalars family, and takes Ayla into contact with the Zelandonii. The book has some parts that drag, but overall a good read.
