Despite enjoying historical fiction Native American history and in particular the region of Cahokia this was a painfully uninteresting bookNot entirely sure why it couldn't hold my interest I think I might have lost interest due to the perspective switching for such long periods of time Also much of the book didn't have much climax to it and the writing was fairly dryTowards the end the action picked up but the final drama seemed to come out of nowhere There was a slight setup but it really just felt forced The love story that exploded at the end was also unexpected and unexplainedThe book tried to depict a society in turmoil due to both internal and external circumstances but mostly just seemed to tell the story of a power mad dictatorI was impressed by the handling of the male to female character He was married to a female warrior and handled with dignity Their marriage and relationship was touching and was a nice touch in an otherwise fairly predictable book

Historical fiction that hits homeHaving grown up on the shores of the Mississippi I felt I could really relate to the Peoples of this story Having a love of history and having a rich heritage of trappers and traders in my home town the rivers are major highways and the cities that become transportation hubs for trade seemed normal I was not surprised by the rich society that had been Cahokia Having seen the actual archaeological site only made this story real to me I realize this a beautiful rendition of historical fiction but it is spot on for bringing the real understands of the past what made it great and also what tore it apart rich and livelyAgain I was moved by the characters in the story I absolutely love NIghtshade she is one of my favorite characters from this entire book series Badgertail is also one of my favorites I feel for their struggles and I resent the Sun Chief not only for his selfishness and cruelty but for making so many people do things they wouldn't normally do Having been in the military I understand the necessity of following orders but it doesn't always make them right and sometimes it conflicts with your own beliefsI love the lore of the Native American religion and mythology I love the deeper understanding I find with each book in the amazing series I think it is a must read for anyone who loves history but also for every American This is our past and the Gears make the lessons of the past just as valid for our modern society
