This book continues the saga of the First Americans and has moved up in time. Mamouths still roam but the herds ar getting smaller. Blood sacrifice, shamans, and the different cultures of the different tribes makes for an interesting story. While this was violent, it was not as violent as the preceding books. A good read for people who enjoy this genre.

This was the 5th book in a series of 5. The first 4 in the series were very good! This last one was set many, many generations later, all different people; I didn't like the book. Didn't even finish it.

This book is rife with racism and sexism. The author also keeps the story classy with plenty of detailed animal/human torture and killing.

And, if I ever read the phrase "man bone" again it will be too soon...

Took me a while to get into ... wasn't expecting such a big change in time frame from the first four books. Good story.

The only reason I read this book was to fulfill my curiousity about the additional stories within the series. This book is one of the reasons why I do not recommend anymore of the William Sarabande.
