While this story does not move at a breakneck pace, it held my attention totally, and I enjoyed every second of this novel. The speculations as to how the various groups would interact crackles with authenticity and plausibility. There are other fascinating speculations contained in this story as well, but I shall eschew any spoilers. This is a really excellent story and novel. I will be eagerly awaiting Book Two in this series!
I said this book would be interesting for anyone who enjoys Time travel with a touch of alternate history. New sentence I would like to give it a higher rating but the writing was somewhat poor and repetitive. The editor for the e-book version should be fired, it's clear that it was not even proofread let alone edited. I'm not sure I could find many people that I would recommend this book to.
My background includes graduate work in paleoanthropology so it is usually with some amount of dread that I pick up an alternate timeline novel that deals with pre-agricultural hominids. As you can imagine, errors stick out as particularly glaring when you're as close to the subject as I am.
Instead, I walked away impressed that an author who I've enjoyed for his guns, diverse characters, and open views (not to mention his sense of humor if you follow him in social media), had put such attention into the details of the science and archaeology of the relevant ancient time period.
I found essentially no errors and an impressive amount of clearly carefully researched detail into everything from stature and life history to local species as well. As if that wasn't enough, he even advanced some novel theories about how early Homo sapiens interacted with the world that I found not only interesting, but eminently plausible.
This is an author, already appreciated by many for his storytelling, showing new depths that certainly surprised this reader.
I've heard the book described as 'slow'. Slower than his other work perhaps, but about appropriate for the amount of work being done. Not to mention, the pacing echoed the travails of the protagonists and I felt did a nice job of bringing us into their world, which was both full of tedium and danger all at once.
The characters were also wonderfully diverse, including men and women from multiple ethnicities, in a way that never felt forced but rather crucial to the story. It all makes sense in the end.
In short, this book was prehistoric fiction done right. I can't wait to read the next one.

Good chacacters and scenarios. New twists on an old rope. Actually, a plausable ending I can be comfortable with.
