After having read and enjoyed Beyond the Sea of Ice, Corridor of Storms, Forbidden Land and Walkers of the Wind, I was looking forward to reading the continuation of The First Americans series. After having read the first 110 pages of Sacred Stones last night, I am wondering what became of the cast of the first four novels. I think that it should be pointed out that the following books are not directly continuing the earlier books. I am enjoying them, but I hope to find out what happened in between the ages that the story skips.

Sounds repeptative if you have read the reviews of the previous volumes purchased. Good read, looking forward to volume 6 which I have recently purchased. Heppy with the quality and the delivery.

Adventure on a grand scale! 21 July 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Couldn't put it down. There is something wise and wonderful in this often blood curdling book. No wonder Western Writers of America voted it one of the outstanding paperback originals of the nineties. As always, Sarabande takes his readers on a rivetting journey back in time. The spirit of the past four novels in the series is alive and well in a new and astounding era of prehistory. I love the new characters! There is something almost Arthurian about them.

The Sacred Stones 7 April 2012
By Tonia Willis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I read the previous 3 books by this author and found them intriguing. There was a certain level of gore and cruelty that sickened me, but I could get through it. However, Sacred Stones begins immediately with the sacrifice of a young virgin girl named Ahnee. William Sarabande develops her characters so well that the reader immediately relates to their plight, feels their pain and confusion and suffers slowly through their demise. I stopped reading the book after Ahnee's horrible and painful death. She was only 12 years old. I won't continue to read an author that describes in vivid detail the murders and cruel rapes performed slowly and viciously on unsuspecting children. Ugh...!

Great Books!! 23 Mar. 2011
By mel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book and all of the others in the series are WONDERFUL!!! They are so vivid in their descriptions of the land they are in and the people also. I own and have read all the books in this series and each one can stand alone but they are even better if you read them all in order. I have read the whole collection at least 3 times per book they are so good. If you like this style of writing then there is no better series of books to read. You will fall in love with people in the books and hate others for trying to destroy the ones you love. They are all a MUST READ!!

Extremely bloody as Sarabande like its 30 May 2005
By Mark Meyer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
William Sarabande is the gore-master of the ancient people series. He occasionally rises to descriptive eloquence, and he very occasionally tries to describe ancient cooking and housekeeping methods, like Jean Auel does (but much better). But the overriding thing that I hate about Sarabande is the unrelenting blood! Horrific killings, sacrifices of virgins, tortures, delayed deaths, yuck. I know that some Native Americans practiced horrific killings (I hated "Dances with Wolves" too!) But this is not entertainment for me. It is horror, like watching Gremlins or reading a Stephen King novel. I also felt that the religious themes of this novel were too advanced, too close to what we know, to sound authentic. For example, Ysuna will gain life everlasting if she eats of the white mammoth. Is this something that true Native Americans believed? I don't know. It just sounded suspiciously like Western thought (or Middle Eastern blood atonement religions.)

I read this book because I liked a previous one where Navakh was almost a real character, and even his moment of death was described quite interestingly. But even that novel was real bloody. I shouldn't have thought Sarabande would change. Sorry.
