Lovely sequel to She Who Remembers!
This is book #2 in a serirs of three A must read for those how love prehistory...Shuler's skillful weaving of research material and story makes the fabric of lives of the Anasazi woman Kwani- the one called
She Who Remembers-and her people become reality.
"A novel of America's prehistory..."a beguiling, moving story." - Jean Auel
The third book of Shuler's Time Circle Quartet should please admirers of She Who Remembers and Voice of the Eagle while immediately drawing in readers new to the story of Antelope, daughter of the revered teacher Kwani Keeper and herself a teacher of the secrets of womanhood. Antelope, an Anazsasi of ancient America, is one of a long line of Chosen Ones who can call the spirits and communicate with her predecessors. She is also the loving mate of Chomoc, who has a wandering eye. Because she fears losing Chomoc, Antelope has insisted on accompanying him on a trading journey to the City of the Great Sun, even though she is still nursing their infant daughter, Skyfeather. But at the city, Antelope and Chomoc are not welcomed by the shaman and his chief, the Great Sun, who suspect and fear their powers. When Antelope sees into the spirit of the Great Sun, she realizes he is hiding a terrible secret and urges Chomoc to leave the area. But her mate is captivated by the beautiful and powerful queen of the City of the North. When Chomoc deserts his wife and daughter, Antelope must use all her powers to defend herself and her child, and to find a way back to her people. Shuler tells this tale in prose turbulent enough, and strokes broad enough, to paint over the sketchiness of her characters. Buttressed by considerable research (bibliography included), it's a bracing read.
an excellent sequel to She Who Remembers. Well written, and as good as the first one. Can't wait to read the third book in the series. Kindled an interest to research more about the Anasazi (Inhabitants of the pre-Columbus southwestern U.S)
Wonderful historical fiction of a distant age
Thirteenth-century North America, where bands of Indians roam the land, again provides the backdrop in this sequel to the bestselling She Who Remembers . Kwani, a woman with compelling spiritual powers, has been driven from her Anasazi tribe and joins her mate Tolonqua's people, the Towa, in the Pueblo city of Cicuye. Over the next 20 years, Kwani survives enemy attacks, participates in rituals seeking guidance and good fortune from the deities, nurtures her spirited son Acoya and daughter Antelope, and struggles to fulfill her anointed role as She Who Remembers, the woman chosen to teach young girls the secrets of Earthmother. The author steeps her narrative in meticulously researched detail.
A fantastic job with detailed description of Native American culture and artifacts,an exciting plot line,and very interesting characters.
Book 2 of this fascinating series about people of the 13th century American Southwest. Continues the story of "She Who Remembers", her mate and children.
I was so surprized to read this book, im a fan of jean auel, and this author does not dissapoint.
The sequel to She Who Remebers. It's a historical fiction that takes place in the Native American societies before Columbus reached America.
"Wonderfully entertaining...Linda Lay Shuler is an accomplished storyteller who weaves a splendid tale" - Los Angeles Times
It was two hundred years before Columbus. The spirits of nature walked the earth, and the people of the American Southwest lived in intimate harmony with the land, the sky, and the seasons. Here the beautiful, blue-eyed Kwani, gifted with magical vision, and Tolonqua, Hunting Chief of the Towa, joined in a passion that defied all taboos. Here Tolonqua fought to build a great fortress city to protect his clan against the dread Pawnee and other foes. Here Kwani battled suspicion and envy to preserve her place as She Who Remembers, and pass on her powers to a daughter, marked at birth for an awesome destiny. Here Kwani's son risked death for honor and for love. Here, in a novel of unsurpassed vividness and narrative sweep, a vanished world comes to unforgettable life.
Voice of the Eagle contnues the epic begun with the bestselling She Who Remembers. In the words of the Houston Post, "Linda Lay Shuler... does for our country what Jean Auel did with her incredibly researched, delightfully erotic novels of prehistoric Europe."
Ancient Indian Fictional at its finest.
Third in a series...as good or better than Clan of CAve Bear series...Beautifully written.
A really good book on early Native Americans
This series captivated me till the end. I wish there was a fourth edition into this wonderful novel. This series is what got me into reading in the first place and I hope that many others enoy the series as well.
