W. Michael Gear ☆ 4 Read & DownloadGree to write this stuff The sad thing is the setting is waaaay interesting than the characters I mean it s so intriguing the way they drop hints about the climate like how the ice giants are dying moaning in the night as the glaciers melt Or the way the mammoths literally walk into the sea when the grass is all gone Or how the hunters brag about killing ten saber tooth tigers Logic From Kant To Russell every year only this year they only kill five because they re so scarce Really it s like the characters get in the way of the setting After reading this book I stopped reading the series I was hoping it would get better but it was the same story in a different setting Boring This is the third or fourth book that I ve read in this series and the stories are beginning to feel a bit too formulaic I did notnjoy this one as much as the others Seemed to drag on too long Insertion of patriarchal gender roles and strict monogamy seems forced When Wolfdreamer speaks to Sunchaser about the civilization that will develop in that area far in the future it smacks of impressing colonial and Western ideals of progress on an Indigenous culture Any of the text in Italics boredlost
