I read this book to fulfill the goal read a book published in the 20th century (1901-1999) I am really enjoying this series. Warning: it does contain very adult scenes in places.

Unfortunately, this book was overly long and about one third of it could have been cut.
Turning it into a romance novel may have been good for a bunch of the female readers but could have been left out too. The story is not bad.

This book was not the best in the series but still is a good read. There are many detailed sex scenes and the love between Alya and Jondalar grows even stronger. At times I am frustrated with some of the characters but that is some of the appeal behind the book. Captivating and Auel continues with the descriptions, although they are very repetitive if you have read the previous books.
