Winter looms in this place of icy splendor near the top of the world-chilling a heart already frozen by hatred and cold dreams of revenge? Experience and adversity have made the storyteller Chakliux a wise and powerful hunter and a man of great respect. But a tender heart is his weakness. In his village lives the beautiful Aqamdax for whom he yearns, though she is mated to Winter looms in this place of icy splendor near the top of the world-chilling a heart already frozen by hatred and cold dreams of revenge?
In his village lives the beautiful Aqamdax for whom he yearns, though she is mated to a cruel and dangerous tribesman she does not love. It is Chakliux she runs to under a clear, moonlit sky while the village sleeps. But there can be no future for them together until a curse upon their people has been transcended. And then there is K'os, the healing woman--maddened and embittered by the outrage she was forced to endure years earlier--outcast and enslaved by the leader of the enemy tribe against whom she has sworn vengeance.
To enact her savage and terrible justice, she will use--and destroy--anyone, if necessary, including the boy-turned-man she rescued in infancy and raised as her son: Chakliux, the storyteller.
Return now to a frozen land in a remarkable time eighty centuries past, when the spirit was tested--and strengthened--by the cruelties of nature and the great mysteries of life. Get A Copy. Paperback , pages. Published February 8th by Avon Books first published More Details Original Title.

May 31, Bertha Ivins rated it really liked it. Theses people were so superstitious and had so many strange ideas and actions.
I could not believe how some of their minds worked. Also the struggle for survival was an everyday challenge. Apr 28, Linda Humberstone rated it really liked it. These books of ancient Alaska and its first inhabitants are fascinating. The characters, their beliefs and mind-sets are totally believable. Their lives were so hard that everything that happened to them, good or bad, depended on observing the traditional ways in which even everyday events should be carried out.
These stories by Sue Harrison are so well written and are so realistic that I am sure that these small groups of people lived their lives and struggled to survive just how she depicts in These books of ancient Alaska and its first inhabitants are fascinating.
These stories by Sue Harrison are so well written and are so realistic that I am sure that these small groups of people lived their lives and struggled to survive just how she depicts in these books. They even experience the same feelings of rejection, love, bitterness and reveal characteristics of deviousness, hatred, bravery and compassion, the same as modern man. Jul 09, Rondi Olson rated it it was amazing. 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.
Highly recommended if you have read the author's other books, also if you are a fan of pre-history novels. Jan 31, Maggie rated it it was amazing Shelves: first-nations-culture , fiction , historical-romance , indigenous-women.
What an amazing read. Each book the author writes gets better and better. There was so much going on. Jan 10, Jenny rated it it was amazing. Love these stories by Sue Harrison!! Feb 13, Doris Raines rated it it was amazing. Shelves: diverting , satisfying. 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.
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. Mar 18, Kelly L. 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. 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.
Jan 09, Jeri rated it liked it. 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. Mar 25, Nancy rated it it was ok. 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. Nov 08, Nicole Diamond rated it liked it. If it has one star I liked it a lot If it has two stars I liked it a lot and would recommend it If 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.
Jan 31, Mindy rated it it was amazing Shelves: indian-novels. Great book, they are all continuations of the last and you kinda get hooked, or at least I did. Aug 31, Christa rated it it was amazing. Aug 16, Shawn Buck rated it really liked it. Very Good. Sep 14, Laura rated it really liked it. 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.
