    After their epic journey across Europe, Ayla and Jondalar have reached his home, the Ninth Cave of the Zelandonii, the old stone-age settlement in the region known today as southwest France. Jondalar's family greet him warmly, but they are initially wary of the beautiful young woman he has brought back, with her strange accent and her tame wolf and horses.

    Overall

    Exactly what the first reviewer said. Far too repetitive. It's not unusual for an author to make references to her earlier books to refresh people's minds, but this is beyond that. The Plains of Passage was the same way. It feels a little bit like cheating to me, using that much of her earlier books as filler. And in this book it's even worse, because each time Ayla and Jondalar meet new people they go through the same 'getting to know you' scenarios, with the same 'getting to know you' reactions that have already been done a few times earlier in the SAME book, let alone series. And each time it happens in great detail, as if it had never been written before. It's cheating. And the narrator suddenly sounding like Natasha in book 5? YES!! I was JUST telling my friend that, right before I read the review! I keep expecting her to say 'moose and squirrel' instead of Whinny and Racer. I'm still listening to it because I've invested time and money into the first 4 audio books, so I have to finish it out. But I still feel cheated by the author, her editors should feel ashamed.

    On paper, Bette Robinson's life is good. At 26, she's got a great deal on an apartment in Manhattan, and she's on target to become an associate at the prestigious investment bank where she works with her best friend. Her 80-hour workweeks might keep her from socializing or dating outside her office walls, but she's paying her dues on the well-trod path to wealth and happiness. So when Bette quits her job like the impulsive girl she's never been, she has no idea what to do next.

    "The Narration was wonderful"
    Overall

    This was a fun book, and the narration was wonderful. I've purchased many, many books from this site, but not all of them get a second listen from me, let alone a third. This one did. Eliza Dushku read all the characters believably. She didn't over do any of them, she simply gave a slight twist when needed, and she didn't make me CRINGE like many female narrators do when reading the male parts, thank God. All in all, it was thoroughly enjoyable, and I have NO doubt I'll be listening to it again.
