The Dawning: 31,000 BC
Expected Publication Date: October 11th, 2022
Genre: Historical Fiction
The Dawning tells an age-old story of deadly struggle, the heart-rending tale of young love-its aspirations, pain, disappointments and eventual triumph.
Ejil and Lada, son and daughter of a Cro-Magnon tribe (on the verge of adulthood) have begun to explore their maturing feelings when an encounter with a clan of Neanderthal hunters tears their Ice Age world apart. Lada is lost and Ejil finds himself embarked on a desperate odyssey to find the mother tribe.
The Neanderthals, a pale skinned people, occupied Ice Age Europe for three hundred thousand years.
Dark-skinned Cro-Magnons, our direct ancestors, appeared forty-five thousand years ago. Five thousand years later, the Neanderthals had disappeared. What happened when our two ancestral peoples came face to face on the ice bound plains of prehistory?
Travel back 33,000 years into our deep past. Set against the backdrop of the fabulous painted caves of Southern France, follow the gripping tale of two young lovers and the sweeping narrative of ancient cultures met in bloody conflict.
The Dawning: 31,000 BC by Richard W. Wise interested me because I enjoy historical fiction but haven’t read anything in this timeline.
The Dawning was an intriguing story. The research done to make this story feel as realistic as possible was impeccable. I was definitely able to feel like I was transported back in time. I learned a ton about what life may have been like back then, which was really interesting to me!
The story was very well done. I liked the characters and the love story. There was a lot of emotion: pain and happiness.
Overall, The Dawning was an interesting read that was well written. If you’re a historical fiction fan and interested in this time period, I would definitely recommend checking this out.
