A Meeting of Clans from the Misfits and Heroes series grabs the reader from the first page and doesn't let go until the last one. The book follows two clans during the ice age as they struggle to survive mastodons and other hazards of the rain forest, enemy tribes and strife within their own communities. When the tribes meet, the characters’ reactions are varied and display a deep understanding of human nature.
Rollins’s rich imagination renders spirit and myth as tangible as a cross, prayer beads or other holy relic. Here is the creation myth, the flood myth and so many others woven naturally into the characters’ lives, allowing us to see our own world with fresh eyes, all while we are being thoroughly entertained. This book is a treat. I highly recommend it.
