Forbidden Land is the third book in the First Americans series. That means, if you haven't read the other two, you should turn back now. These are books that have to be read in order.

Because his ways are so different though, when his woman, Lonit, births twins and refuses to set them aside, the band turns against them.

I just finished reading Forbidden Land: A Novel of the First Americans by William Sarabande. It was a good book. The ending was unexpected, but good.

I enjoyed this book. Anyone fans of the Gear and Auel genre will find this book satisfys the same expectations. I love reading about prehistoric times and a well written story with full bodied characters makes it a page turner. There are 11 books in the First American series and I hope to be able to eventually read them all.

This was the best book in the series so far!!! The end of the book really picks in excitement and there is a very unexpected twist. I can't wait to start the next book.
