Editorial Reviews

Review

"An exciting adventure into a 'what if' world. A brilliant work of creative imagination, one that rivals in conception, scope, and execution of plot Jean Auel's bestselling novels".-- The Nashville Banner

It is extremely rare that a sequel equals the original for obvious reasons: (1) If the author does not emphasize character then he/she must rely on the novelty of the original work to carry forth of introduce still more novelty or (2) If the author does emphasize character then the reader is usually all too familiar with their lives.
Harrison solves this by limiting the material offered to the reader on the humans in the first novel. Throughout the series he has tried to remain factually or scientifically correct such as the idea that huge dinosaurs could have never developed the brain size or build the structures required for their use and that without the devastating asteroid dinosaurs would have remained the rulers of Earth.
We continue our adventures of the "human boy" who interacts with the dinosaur culture. The dinosaurs are, in the end, simply prototypes of humans in their emotional and ethical outlook - some are good, others bad. This is a good read.

While I'm not a hardcore sci-fi fan,I was totally blown away by the concept of the "West of Eden" series. I especially liked book II..."Winter in Eden". This story really became a character study for heros. While there is one main character throughout the series, in book II the focus quickly gets shifted to a female,(our main character's mate) and forget everything you ever knew about heros!This woman is devoted to her mate, and will do anything to maintain their family's well being. Some of the situations faced by these characters is a true testament to human endurance. The very idea that nomadic tribes could exist under some of the conditions described with-in the pages of this gripping story still give me shivers, and I fully intend to read this wonderful series again. Mr. Harrison is truly one of my favorite Authors.

It is a real shame that this series is out of print because I fell in love with it. Now all you can get is the first in the series (West of Eden). This story is along the lines of Tarzan with some Battlefield Earth in there, if I had to compare it to anything. I read this series when I was sixteen in hawaii. I couldn't put it down and don't remember anything else about the trip. But I'll never forget these three books. The characters and story were simply gripping. I would encourage anyone interested in an epic alternate world journey to grab a copy of West of Eden then hope you can hunt down the rest of the books. It's worth it!

Harrison is in the same class as Farmer and Vance. I didn't think I would find another writer to match these two, but H. H. certainly does.

Harrison's 3-part Eden series is one of the teasures of SF. Set in a world where dynasaurs were not wiped out, but evolved into the intelligent dominant rulers of the world, with scientific knowledge (particularly in the biological sciences), the saga tells of the interactions between the humans who are dominated by the rulers of earth. Switching scenese between the advanced, female-dominated culture of the 'saurs and the stone-age level humans who are their enemies, Harrison invents a detailed world of fascination, cultural differences which make for outstanding commentary on the "real world" and unforgettable characters. Just fabulous.

Format: Hardcover
Harrison continues the tale of a war between Stone Age humans and the Yilanè, intelligent descendants of dinosaurs which, in this world, were not wiped out by a cometary impact.

This second book in the series is centered on what, for us, would be the Atlantic Ocean and the theme of discovery. The villain of the series, the Yilanè Vaintè, is now discredited after the destruction of the race's first transoceanic colony. She was leader of the city, and the blowback of her genocidal war on human and one in particular, her former captive and hero of the story, Kerrick, led to that result. She convinces the leadership of another city to help her renew her attacks against the humans in the western hemisphere of Earth - necessary because an encroaching ice age is driving the Yilanè out of their Eurasian and African homes. (Harrison gives Kerrick a prologue in the book which adequately summaries the events of the first book, but I'd recommend reading West of Eden anyway.)

For his part, Kerrick hopes to put the ruins of the Yilanè city to some use. He also becomes quite attached and concerned with two Yilanè males. Like him, they were prisoners of Vaintè, and, like all males of that race, confined to a harem existence. Their discoveries and their hard-won self-confidence and knowledge, their exultation in the freedom of the world beyond the harem walls, is a major charm of this novel.

Harrison introduces an Eskimo-like race of human (though they have vestigial tails) nomads called the Paramutan which figure in the adventures of Kerrick and the wife and son he is separated from.

I had read the Stainless Steel Rat series and enjoyed them, so I decided to try the Eden series. The story reminds me of E.R.Bourghs "At the Earth's Core" series. The story is about reptiles being the dominate spices on earth and how primitive man interacts with them. A very good story.
