This was the first book of the series I ever read. I found this one and "The Plains of Passage" on the shelf of my high school library. This book is one of the best of the series, with the back and forth between Ayla and Jondalar. I loved the vividness of the Stone Age world. You can tell she heavily researched these novels before writing them. The writing can get a little repetitive at times, but this book is so rich and full that I didn't mind. I highly recommend the first four books in the series.

This is one of my favorite books to the series. My heart aches for Ayla's need for company which she finds in Whinney and eventually in Jondalar. Ayla is painted as this very independent woman who overcomes so many obstacles.

This book is enjoyable and should be read by anyone who liked the first.

It starts the rest of the series in a different direction and reads more like a woman's romance novel at times. The author creates a "does she like me, does he like me" angst situation between the main characters that bored me.
