Book Description

Completely re-formatted and re-edited 5th September 2012

Savage Eden

A time between Ice Ages.

Golau, a Cro-Magnon hunter gatherer, is pulled from a freezing lake and nursed back to health by a group of wandering Neanderthal. Miles away, his clan’s peaceful existence is torn apart by an attack from an unknown predatory species and many are taken beyond the ice wall as prey.

Golau and some of the remaining men set out in pursuit and are joined by a pod of Neanderthal, seeking answers of their own.

During the quest, the two species are forced to forget their differences and work together despite some uncomfortable truths being revealed.

Back in the Clan, those left behind are forced to change their ways very quickly if they are going to survive the oncoming winter and a young feisty girl with strange ideas leads them down a path completely alien to what they have always done before.

Beyond the ice wall, the horrifying truth about the third species is finally uncovered and answers revealed that affect both hunter and Neanderthal alike resulting in a bloody confrontation, the outcome of which has the potential to affect the very future of humanity.

5.0 out of 5 stars surprising 24 Nov. 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
There is no way that i would have ever thought i would enjoy a book about caveman, but somehow i did, this again is another really well written book that keeps your interest and makes you feel completely involved with the story, the only reason i haven't reviewed this book sooner is because i was so wrapped up in wanting to read the authors next title as i had enjoyed this one so much, it's very rare for me that i find a book, enjoy it and then enjoy the other books by the same author but we've these titles i have really enjoyed each one and can't wait for more!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful story telling 2 April 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have to say I found this book to be a vivid and colourful story. The author is obviously a very good wordsmith and knows how to create a page turner. I guess some might gripe at the use of more modern language but I assume the author used that to keep the pace of the story up, so I found I could easily overlook this. I do sincerely hope there is a follow up to this book as there are a lot of characters that could be further developed I believe.

4.0 out of 5 stars Savage Eden 13 April 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Early on in the book we meet with several stock characters; the iron-willed handsome hunter, the plucky handmaiden, the aging benevolent chief, etc., but these initial presentations don’t last. In fact the author specifically goes out of his way to avert these stock characterisations, and subvert several stereotypical plot points that are telegraphed early on through prophecies and in the hands of a less skilled author would’ve been allowed to play out. Several times the author isn’t afraid to give us brutal plot twists, or at least very seriously threaten at them to the point where I genuinely didn’t know if the outcome would come good. This felt realistic, and ramped up both the tension and the level of investment one has in these characters. Credit to the author for that.

The author also recognises how to properly use the setting as a tool to drive the plot. A little time is spent in the beginning admiring and appreciating the beauty of the setting, but later the environment itself drives the plot by presenting the characters with the obstacles they must overcome. Instead of time being spent on describing in painstaking detail how a character might forage for food or treat a hide, these details are only presented when they are relevant and have purpose; when there is something to aim at or achieve that these details form the solution for. This is the way such historical settings should appear in a book, instead of being plonked down in great big info dumps with no relevance to the plot whatsoever.

The final point was that, for my opinion, the dialogue just felt a little lacking and formulaic. Together, this slight deficiency in characters, plot, and dialogue left me with a visceral sense that the story could’ve been better – but, I stress, the author tries to avert these issues, and overall the story was a fun and enjoyable read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant read 13 Oct. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really cannot recommend this book enough. I am an avid historical fiction reader and dipped into this era by mistake, but it was cheap to buy. The era is really well researched and it felt as if I was watching a film, not reading, as the descriptions were so good. To my mind, it fills in all the gaps to explain the Neanderthal/modern human cross over yet convinces us of the struggle to survive to become homo sapiens. If you have not read into this time period, do not hesitate to buy this book. utterly brilliant read, shame there is no continuation as of the moment. This author is one to watch\read!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful 5 Mar. 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was so different from the others I've read of Kevin. But it has been impossible to put down.
It has gripped me from the very first sentence to the last.
I loved every minute and the images the story evokes in my minds eye is better than any blockbuster at the pictures...
Thank you Kevin and I'm already looking forward to this next down load of another book of yours.
Fantastic reading again......

5.0 out of 5 stars Ashman's most captivating book yet 13 Feb. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've read all his books and this one caught me completely off guard. This was harder to put down than any of his others. The tempo and excitement were great and the characters were well thought out and a joy to follow. I highly suggest reading this on a cold winters day...under a warm blanket!
