Publisher's Summary

Volume One of The Earthsong Trilogy evokes the moment in prehistory when marauding nomads brought horses, male gods, and war to a goddess-worshipping Europe that had known peace for thousands of years. Against this perilous backdrop, a passionate, dangerous love develops between Marrah, a gifted priestess, and Stavan, one of the invading warriors.

Clan of the Cave Bear Revisited

I just love a good prehistoric trilogy. Tho' not as detailed, the pictures are vivid . . . the characters believable; and volume 1 is a complete story tho' I am anxious to start volume 2. ;->

This was awful.

What disappointed you about The Year the Horses Came?

This book was extremely slow. The story was not historically accurate at all.

What could Mary Mackey have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

I honestly don't know how she was able to get a second book published.

Would you be willing to try another one of Abby Craden’s performances?

Yes.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No.

Any additional comments?

No.
