Either freakin’ say “I love you” or move on!!! The element I would say is a bit irritating about some moments is the repetition. She taught me your language. Welke opties voor jouw bestelling beschikbaar zijn, zie je bij het afronden van de bestelling.

Due to my love of the previous two books, I am being generous giving this 3 stars, it is actually closer to 2 stars.

Instead, Ayla and Jondalar begin a painful, stupid, nonsensical “falling out”. At the end of this novel, Ayla and Jondalar leave for the year-long return journey to Jondalar’s people, the Zelandonii, a journey detailed in The Plains of Passage and continued in The Shelters of Stone.
