    • The second in the Storyteller trilogy, CRY OF THE WIND was a good read. There was a new murderer to find, plenty of action, and much to my surprise, the plot-lines and romances started in the first book concluded at the end of this book, leaving me to wonder what the connection in the last book will be.This book can be read without reading the books in the Ivory Carver trilogy, but before reading this book, SONG OF THE RIVER should be read.Highly recommended if you have read the author's other b [...]



    • Sue Harrison is, herself, a skillful storyteller. She can instantly transport me to the prehistoric Aleutian Islands and then keep me there among her full and fascinating characters until the book's last page. Her stories are full of intrigues and surprises that keep the pages turning. Perhaps best is how well Harrison understands and portrays human nature and how she assures me that our modern day cultures are no better and no worse than those preceeding us. It's an immensely satisfying read.


    • In this fully researched tale, Harrison presents a vivid and fascinating look at the rich culture and lives of the ancient peoples of Alaska—their customs, legends, beliefs, superstitions, and way of life. Many marriages are made of necessity, but there are also love stories. The tribes are well-drawn with murder, revenge, kindness, heroism and even evil.


    • In the second part of this saga, Chakliux has grown up but not without heartache in his yearning for Azamdax, who is mated to another, and the cruelness of his adopted mother K'os, who has been enslaved by the enemy. Set in the Alaska area 80 centuries ago, the interplay of these characters continues and keeps you guessing as to the final outcome.


    • I'm totally addicted to Harrison's novels. This trilogy is compelling and won't let me stop reading. I'd pin my eyes open with safety pins to keep reading non-stop, if I didn't need sleep. Her storytelling is lyrical and exciting. And her antiheroes are some of my favorites to date. I'm going to be depressed when I finish the next book because that means the trilogy is complete.


    • Sue Harrison does a good job of creating strong characters and moving them well through a fairly complicated plot with plenty of twists, but believable characterization in the plot, and very believable motivation of the characters for their behaviors.I'm starting the final book of this trilogy, Call Down the Stars. I HAVE to find out how the characters change and develop.


    • If it has one star I liked it a lot If it has two stars I liked it a lot and would recommend itIf it has three stars I really really liked it a lot If it has four stars I insist you read it If it has five stars it was life changing


    • Second in the Storyteller Trilogy, this one undertakes far too much in plot twists and is peoples by too many characters (4 villages worth) to easily follow the main story. It's the story of how fatal to a culture just a few nut-cases can be.






    • The 2nd book in the series was a very pleasant read. I did not want to put this book down and felt full invested in many of the characters. I'm eager to read the 3rd book to find how how it ends.




    • This book es excellent! So much better than the first one of the thrilogy, it's full of surprises, sorrow but also lot's of joy. I recommend!!!
