Creates a story line from history
Anytime an author attempts to create characters and a storyline from a time in history they're taking a chance. There's no doubt that there are things that are way out of whack with this book like any other of the genre, but for the casual reader who's looking for entertainment and not historical accuracy, it's clear the authors took the time to learn enough that the setting comes across as real. The characters are appropriately flawed and gifted to lend to its readability and by the end you're certainly cheering for them to succeed.
Personally, I was looking for something a little racier after reading the Psy-Changeling series and the Elder Races series, but this romance is definitely less explicit and subdued. There's nothing wrong with that, but it wasn't what I was expecting and overall the storyline is enjoyable enough to have me purchasing the next book in the series.
Where the book succeeded was in the construction of several complex characters driven by different motivations coming together toward a common end. Particularly, the Black Shell and Pearl Hand characters are deep in their complexity, making them more realistic and pulling the reader into the story deeper.

Story was great, reading, not so much.
The Gears, once again, have written a wonderful story of N. America's indigenous peoples.
The reader's diction was clear, but he had below average affect and the variety of voice between characters was so lacking it was sometimes confusing to know who was speaking.
