At this point, it doesn’t matter if she found Ranec attractive: Auel By Jean M. I hunrers to shake Ayla and Jondalar and the author for going on and on and on and on about their unrequited love. Ayla invents the needle, domesticates a Wolf cub, possesses shamanic powers that the Mamut spiritual leader of the Mamutoi encourages her to use to “see visions”, and generally grows to be an even bigger Mary Sue than even the first two books made her out to be and that is a feat, lemme tell you.

The Mammoth Hunters

She’s a very likeable character for the way she understands and adapts to all situations, but in some ways she’s very naive too and this leads her to both good and bad situations with friends and lovers alike. One character that I just have to mention is the young boy who Ayla meets at Lion Camp who cannot speak. Want to Read saving…. Just how I expected” he muttered, more to himself than to her.

Feb 16, Gina rated it it was amazing Shelves: This book could have been huntes shorter and I probably would have enjoyed it more!

The biggest drawback to the book is in Ayla’s animal companions. Yes, misunderstandings and lack of communication can destroy relationships, but often enough they’re based on barely acknowledged fears. No woman had ever chosen someone else when he wanted her.

It would have definitely been better if aeul were half as long. And yes, I know I haven’t reviewed the other books in the series yet, but this one really stuck out. Fix field “sort by title”.
