Meh! I find myself glossing over pages because I'm bored. The author seems to gloss over quickly the interesting social interactions but spends pages describing and repeating flora and fauna reviews. Yes she has extensive knowledge but maybe she would have been better writing a reference book than a novel. She seriously "lost the plot" after Clan of the Cave Bears. But the birthing scene was very touching, for another mother anyway. Struggling to regain interest for the last book. Just want to finish series so I can move on to something else. Hope the last book can redeem itself, but I'm not holding onto too much hope.
