5 STARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Reading this giant 700 page masterpiece was a GIFT! It was a beautiful blessing just to get so wrapped up in this story.....and I am so excited for book # 3 in the series to arrive at my house....I ordered it online....I think this is the greatest book series that has ever been written and I will be reccommending it to people until I can no longer talk. : )

Book one is: She Who Remembers
Book 2 is: Voice of The Eagle......and it is even more outstanding and whirlw...more
Voice of the Eagle is the second book in Shuler's Kwani series. I would say that this is definitely a series you need to read in order, as it makes reference to characters and events that happen in the previous book. You'd be a little lost if you started out on this one.

Kwani has had her son and become the mate of Tolonqua, a handsome hunting chief. They return to his home where she is mostly welcomed, despite her blue eyes. But not all is well. Tolonqua is the leader of a group that wants to bu...more
The book started off slowly, and I made the mistake of comparing it to Jean Auel, who in my opinion cannot be surpassed in this genre. I think it took me a bit to get into the flow of the story, which was meandering. I'm not sure if the pace picked up, or I finally settled into it, but after about 200 pages I was immersed in the story (The books is just over 600 page). Kwani's story became the story of her mate, her children, her adopted people. It seemed to be very well researched and well writ...more

Second in a three book series that is a remarkable book. The author's research and incredible story telling abilities made this a book you couldn't put down. It has everything in it: family, religion, suspense, sex, action, scenery, possessions (jewelry,etc.). I feel I now know so much about these ancient people and look forward to visiting the ruins.

This story is expertly written. An Awesome read!! Great author!
I'm glad I decided to continue on with this series, another great read. A lot of time is condensed into this book, which sometimes makes it feel a little rushed, but overall it didn't really hurt the storyline at all. I can understand why she "fast forwarded" through some years...
I really enjoyed this book by Linda Lay Shuler. I have looked for other books by her in the second hand book stores but haven't found any. If you liked Clan of the Cave Bear you'll love this book and even if you haven't read Clan of the Cave Bear you may love this book because it is a lighter story. It has some magic...the old kind, from back in the 'cave man' type days where they believed the spirits ruled their lives and prayed to all the goods. The main characters are very endearing.
Great series…hated to see it end.

Fabulous continuation with a rich discussion on the Anasazi, Towa, Pawnee and Apache tribes.. Entire series is worth the read.
Mandy Sherman
If you are looking for a well researched, historical saga this is the series for you. I don't typically read books on American Indians. I really liked the authors writing style. The author kept things very unpredictable.

I was continually shocked at how primitive the American Indians were. The book takes place generations before Europeans came to the Americas but their society was almost frozen in time.
Jess Penhallow
I enjoyed this perhaps even more so than the first book. It was a bit strange the fact that it covered so many years when the first book takes place over just one year but i liked seeing the characters develop as they grew older.
Not as good as the first one. Very slow.
This story continues the adventurous life of Kwani, who is "She Who Remembers" and her now partner, Tolonqua. They both visioned the White Buffalo before becoming partnered and the visions came to fruition when Kwani's son (fathered by Hunting Cheif, Okalake) was born. They took the bison and his hide and now they return to the home of Tolonqua at Cicuye. The date is A.D. 1272.

Early in this second book, it seems that Kwani and her people are having no end of troubles, keep reading. Kwani's story continues along with her family until it's expected end. Good book with more interesting notes on Indian culture.

Although I enjoyed this book I found myself trudging along until the second half that had more to do with Kwani's children. Perhaps it's because I read the first and second books back to back.
Couldn't get all the way through it. Devices used over and over became tiring. Good imagery, interesting subject matter to me, otherwise I would never have picked it up or made it as far as I did.
Tamara Koosees
I love this book it was very interesting and left me feeling as though I was watching a movie in my mind each time I opened the pages to read it. My imagination was set free every time!!
Kwani's story continues. Tolonqua is killed, she mates with Yatosha and she returns to the House of the Sun where she dies.
Outstanding historical fiction. More... http://thejourneyoftwo.wordpress.com/...
again a 2nd read. I enjoyed the book very much the 2nd time. I moved right into book 3 when I finished this one.
Amazing storytelling. This series has become sacred & cherished on my shelves.

Continuation of "She who Remembers" with Kwani, Tolonqwa and Baby
The sequel to She Who Remembers--I enjoyed it as much as I did the first one.
Shelley Upchurch
Great Book kept me captivated and up until 1:00am quite a few times.
There are a lot of characters to keep track of, but a good read.
Donna Ippoliti
Never made it past this one but I loved She Who Remembers.
