Because she has shown her mastery of the red tongue, ratha now leads the Named. She oversees the Firekeepers, members of the clan with a special charge, and the rituals, herding, and governance; but she often wonders if the power of fire has corrupted them all. When Orange-Eyes, a politically astute newcomer, joins the clan, Ratha is forced to decide how she will keep control - or if she wants to keep control of the clan at all.
Clan Ground is a great sequel to The Named's first installment, Ratha's Creature. After mastering the red tongue, Ratha now faces a new challenge -- the change the red tongue has upon her clan. The moment an Unnamed steps foot looking to join the clan, I immediately sensed danger, especially when some of the clan think Ratha should except Orange-Eyes. The way he eyes the red tongue with a sense of knowing, you know something's up.

I really do love books that have the main characters as animals. It brings you into a different world and, hey, you get to live out your life as the animal! What more could you ask for? Seeing the change the red tongue brings to the clan really makes you wonder if it would really change the way animals survive if they mastered something much like it. And their new companions? Genius addition if I do say so myself.

Let's just say I'm excited to continue the series in the next installment, Ratha and Thistle-Chaser.
