I kept thinking if I continued to listen something would happen...yes it does happen....just very slowly. The constant inner monologue is too much.
On the other hand the story has good bones....and is refershingly different....but too drawn out.

I have read all the Kate Daniels books, and this is by far my favorite. Having read the books already it took a long time to warm to the narrator. Now that I am used to her style I am loving every minute of it! Can't wait to listen to the next book and can't wait for Ilona to write the next one in the series!
Tried several times to get into the story. Not sure if the narrator was just TOO boring or if the story line was too boring, either way I never finished it!

Wow, Jane does it again!
Great to see Jane at it in another city with the same old crew, and nice to see some new characters (eg Sole). Good relationship between Jane and Eli and the Kid. LOTS of sexual tension between Jane and Bruiser and Rick. Not enough of Beast.

Interesting and Punchy
What did you love best about Skinwalker?
I loved the main character Jane and was really pleased that she wasn't just some slutty stereotype like a lot of other paranormal fantasy main characters.
What did you like best about this story?
The whole American Indian Story leaves you wanting to find out more about Jane and her past...
What does Khristine Hvam bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Really great naration, I am sure that it is difficult when switching between Beast and Jane and she does it with ease.

What would have made The Land of Painted Caves better?
It would have been better if it wasn't so slow.
Any additional comments?
The story is so slow, there are so many possibilities....Clan of the Cave Bear was so good and the next few books, then this one just rambles on an on.
Interesting historical novel
Would you try another book from Robert McCammon and/or Edoardo Ballerini?
I would read/listen to another book by Robert McCammon, although I did find the story very slow to start with.
Great book, fantastic characters
Would you recommend Shadow of Night to your friends? Why or why not?
A great witch/vampire novel....not the same soppy love story that is becoming all too popular. Great depth of characters and well researched historically.
What does Jennifer Ikeda bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Wonderful accents, well done.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes, I couldn't wait to get back into the car to listen more.
