The Shelters of Stone (Earth's Children, Book 5) by Jean M. Auel


The Shelters of Stone opens as Ayla and Jondalar, in conjunction with their animal buddies, Wolf, Whinney, and Racer, complete their epic adventure right through Europe and are greeted thru Jondalar’s folks: the Zelandonii. abilities of the ninth Cave of the Zelandonii fascinate Ayla. Their clothes, customs, artitruths, even their houses—formed in nice cliffs of vertical limestone—are a supply of marvel to her. And within the lady Zelandoni, the spiritual chief of the ninth Cave
(and the one that initiated Jondalar into the reward of delight), she meets a fellow healer with whom to share her knowledge and talents.

then again as Ayla and Jondalar get able for the formal mating at the summer assembly, there are issues. no longer all of the Zelandonii are welcoming. buddies worry Ayla’s unfamiliar manners and abhor her relationship with the ones they identify flatheads and he or she identifys extended family. buddies even oppose her mating with Jondalar, and make their displeasure recognized. Ayla has to name on all her abilities, intelligence, knowledge, and instincts to go looking out her manner in this sophisticated society, to prepare for the delivery of her child, and to come to a decision whether or not or not she is going to accept new demanding situations and play the most important position within the destiny of the Zelandonii.

Jean Auel is at her best possible in this beautifully textured introduction of a prehistoric society. The Shelters of Stone is a sweeping tale of love and danger, with all of the marvelful detail—consistent with meticulous analysis— that makes her novels unique. this can be a effective continuation of the Earth’s children® saga that started with The extended family of the Cave bear. And it accommodates the most important rhythmic poem that describes the delivery of Earth’s children and plays its own position within the narrative of The Shelters of Stone.

Or his bitchy jilted fiancée? Ayla wows her longer term in-laws thru putting fireside from flint and taming a wild wolf. then again the sort of lot regard her Neanderthal adoptive extended family as subhuman "flatheads." extended family larynxes cancff0478#three9;t fairly manage language, and Ayla should persuade the Zelandonii that extended family signal language isncff0478#three9;t simply arm-flapping. Zelandonii and extended family are skirmishing, and people who interbreed are deemed "abominations." What might Jondalarcff0478#three9;s tribe suppose in the event that they knew Ayla had to abandon her section-breed son in extended family u . s .? The plot is slow to unfold, as a result of Auelcff0478#three9;s first objective is to %. whether or not or not with length Pleistocene detail, provocative speculation, and bits of romance, intercourse, tribal politics, cleansing soap opera, and homicidal wooly rhino-looking adventure. Itcff0478#three9;s an enveloping truth-based totally delusion, a mode-crossing time trip to the Ice Age. --Tim Appelo
