Upon her arrival, she finds Jondalar sharing Pleasures with Marona Marona being Jondalar’s bitter ex-girlfriend whom he abandoned to go travelling in the second book, and who actively and spitefully caused Ayla much difficulty when she first arrived at Jondalar’s home.

The second part is mainly about the caves they visit. If you are an EC fan, you should read it but prepare to be outraged! I’m always afraid of being the one to burst everyone’s expectation bubble without putting in a fair effort.

Lists with This Book. A English limited edition version of the book contained an augmented reality model of Ayla. Wolves, they are social creatures! Why didn’t we know about this before?


Along the way, she accidentally discovers evidence that one of her fellow Zelandoni apprentices has been cheating on his OWLs. They are filled with remarkable paintings of mammoths, lions, and aule, and their mystical aura at times overwhelms Ayla.

Jondalar and Ayla act like lovelorn middle schoolers. I finished the series. The people accept this and coin the word “fa-ther”, etymology as follows: And what about the detailed descriptions in Clan of the Cave Bear of how Ayla had to work hard to learn all these skills because she didn’t have inborn knowledge?

There was nothing new Augmented Mind developed the augmented reality app Ayla. It was a LOT more interesting than the book was!
