    1. DNFUnfortunately, I could not finish this book I really tried because I am almost obsessive about finishing books But somewhere around page 170 , I gave up This is only my second DNF, the first being Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand To be fair, I haven t rated the book.Set in the Prehistoric era, Promised Valley Rebellion is centered on the love between Morning Sun, the King s son and Rose Leaf, a farmer s daughter They are forbidden to marry each other right from the time they are children Blue Sky, [...]


    2. Ron Fritsch s Promised Valley Rebellion takes readers into a prehistoric world and a clash between the valley people farmers and their primitive opponents, the hill people There are many themes running through PVR including epic battles, forbidden love, war, reluctance to advance and adopt change, and the coming of age You ll think of Jean Auel s Earth s Children when you read PVR, as this prehistoric time comes alive with the character Fritsch created Award winning and deservedly so.


    3. What is truly distinctive about Fritsch s series is the prehistoric setting where the settler people of the valley farming and land tending folk live in guard against the marauding people of the nomadic hunting barbaric people of the hills Blue Sky and Morning Sun are best friends, coming of age together and part of their rite of passage is to go up to the hill borders of their valley to stand guard against attacks from their enemy Morning Sun has been forbidden develop any relations with is bes [...]


    4. This book is rich in characters that have depth and substance so much so that in the beginning of the book I had a difficult time keeping up with them But, this author has made it bit easier by including a list of the characters at the beginning of the book, along with a brief description of them I really loved this Not only did it help me keep up, but it helped provide a mental picture of what each of these characters look and act like I wish other authors would take the time to do this Set in [...]


    5. I m fascinated by prehistoric fiction, but haven t found much I m happy with so glad to come across this set of novels What I liked the characters are fully human, intelligent, with attitudes we recognise, either to go along with or argue with Stories set in the distant past can assume people were dumber than us, which is unscientific I believe The characters are engaging, I like and admire our hero, who s a bit of a fighter for free speech and rights and the crisis situation turns out to be a s [...]


    6. There s so much to enjoy and love about Promised Valley Rebellion First, it is chock full of well developed, unique characters, and in case you get lost with the number of players in this suspense filled historical piece, the author has kindly included a Character List, which I read after I had finished the novel as a way to re cap the story.I also really enjoyed the way Fritsch incorporated gay issues into prehistoric times this has to be a first I m sure, and created a fascinating juxtapositio [...]


    7. For me the novel started off a bit slow and I struggled to connect with any of the characters However I kept on reading and I am glad I did as once I read the first couple of chapters I really began to enjoy this novel.At times throughout the novel I found myslef unable to connect with the characters and this is something that is important to me However I should mention that there were some characters I could connect with and this is what made the novel really enjoyable I will be looking out for [...]


    8. Promised Valley Rebellion is a rich tapestry of prehistoric life, examining the questions and conflicts humans still struggle with today.Ron Fritsch weaves a tale of intelligent people in a structured society, farmers trying to preserve their way of life in the valley while guarding against incursions from hunters in the hills Questions arise as to their way of life, casting doubt on the history the shamans have preserved.The story has some surprising twists and turns, with sympathetic character [...]


    9. This is an exciting pre historic novel in the tradition of Jean Auel s Clan of the Cave Bears If you were disappointed by Auel s latest Land of the Painted Caves as was nearly everyone you should try Promised Valley Rebellion.The author aims, in part, to chronicle the challenging transition from a traditional life of hunting, gathering, and roaming to a radically new life of farming, settling and creating towns.But the relationships and conflict between characters also makes for engaged reading, [...]


    10. Many know that I love historical fiction and I have a particular interest in prehistoric times Ever since first reading The Clan of the Cave Bear, Book one in Jean Auel s Earth s Children series, prehistoric stories have fascinated me When I was offered a chance to read this book, I jumped at the chance What Ron has done with this book is truly amazing He gives us a glimpse of what a civilized prehistoric society might have looked like and brings interesting characters and themes into the storie [...]


    11. DNF I guess I thought this book was a re imagining of prehistoric life I understand that we don t know the ins and outs of ancient people groups, but this is a weird sloshing together of recently emerged farmers in a world of hunter gatherers and a medieval style farm community As a student of prehistory, I just can t handle it And then there s the part where the whole story revolves around a fairly unbelievable community of homosexual tribesmen and they are happy about population control Ancien [...]


    12. I liked this book, it was a refreshing change from the books I usually read The writing is clear and concise, though I did find that some parts could be somewhat info dumpish like Clan of the Cave Bear Personally, I m not scared away by this, but some people are, so this book might not be for everyone I liked it nonetheless, and the society and religion in this book made sense I also liked how people were open about being gay or lesbian, and how there was nothing wrong with that in society s rul [...]


    13. I was really disappointed with this read It was compared with Jean Auel s books, but is nowhere remotely in the same area I wouldn t have even known that this was a prehistoric setting if it hadn t been explained in the reviews Much of the writing felt like a history book, but with nothing actually historical could have been set on an alien planet just as easily as prehistoric earth, there was so little detail The whole thing felt really stilted and I didn t care for the writing I m very disappo [...]


    14. What the is this about Who can keep the characters straight This reads like George Jones song And the race is on , but with names like the characters in this book, perhaps the Redskins should change their name to Washington Native Americans With Somewhat Different Complexions Positions will no longer be called Running Back, Wide Receiver or Quarterback but Loping Buck, Man Outside the pow wow and Person Who gets too close to large man who puts ball between his legs Please change man to Person.


    15. DNF I gave up at 37% Maybe I m the wrong reader for this book, but I saw no point in going on with it.I guess the author tried to write his own version of earth s children but it was a failureCould it be a YA book Because it was fairy tale like, naive and kind of romantic.I also noticed an effort to appeal to a gay audience.Whatever it was, it failed to keep me interested.I have already deleted it from my kindle.


    16. I tried to read this as I saw that other people thought it was a great book I, however, could not get past the stilted way in which it was written, the scattered introduction of so many cutesy named characters, and the fact that the beginning seemed to concentrate too much on the character who was gay, which made me wonder if the whole book was going to be about his struggles I decided to move on to something interesting.
