I had trouble reading this book. I usually sink my teeth into books that I like. This one I wrestled with. I kept comparing it to Sue Harrison's Mother Earth, Father Sky series which I ripped through. The comparisons I made were in the following way: writing style was dry, sometimes the dialog was unbelievable, it was too long and sometimes I got lost if I put the book down for a week and tried to pick it up again. It did contain good elements like: historical native american ideas and the "dreamer" concept was wonderful. I didn't feel for the characters as much as Sue Harrison's, however, the heroine in the story was the most outstanding and I do like the fact that she didn't get her man in the end---so props to the writers for being unconventional.

I chock up my slight dissatisfaction to the fact that this is the first book in their series. I have picked up People of the Weeping Eye in hopes that the writing got better---at least I know I can trust the plot to be interesting and, at best, get some historical knowledge of native americans out of it.
