In a time before time at the top of the world, in a harsh and unforgiving age of ice, courage will sustain three remarkable souls through trials as bitter as the chill winds of the eternal winter.
Claimed by a brutal, despised enemy, Kiin must sacrifice her love for the sake of her tribe and the safety of her children. Left widowed and helpless among the Whale Hunters, Kukutux now faces the impossible challenge of surviving alone. While Samiq, wounded and a hunter no more, must take up the mantle of leadership and guide a devastated people abandoned by their gods.
At the dawn of humanity, their extraordinary destinies intertwine. And through hardship and adventure, they endure, confronting the cruelty of man, fate and nature with the indomitable strength of heart and spirit.
Yes, it had a feel good ending, but this was the most disjointed book of the series. I was wondering for an hour or two on several threads, "but what about? " I wish I hadn't wasted a credit for this series. I kept thinking it would get better, based on reviews, but it never happened. This series moves into my list to cure insomnia. The narrator has no inflection, which makes for good sleeping.
I love all three books. I have read a few of books by Sue Harrison and I enjoy them all. I look forward to the next series. Great narrating by Holly Fielding.
