Foregone Conflict (Across Horizons Book 2) Kindle Edition
A desperate team of travelers. A world at war. A new destiny.
Once you jump back in time, you can never return. Lincoln Woodhouse knows this, but that doesn’t keep him from trying. After all, who wants to live forever in a brutal land of scimitar-toothed cats and vengeful Neanderthals?
Lincoln, Skyra, and the rest of the team escape by jumping forward 47,000 years. But the present isn’t what it used to be. In this new timeline Neanderthals are not extinct, and the world is at war.
With only enough equipment for two more time jumps, the travelers prepare to jump again before they get caught up in the conflict. Too late—the team is attacked and captured, and soon they find themselves amid an extraordinary society of spider-worshipping Neanderthals.
Lincoln and Skyra, although from two very different worlds, deepen their unusual bond as they become embroiled in a daring plan to launch a revolution. In the midst of turmoil and deceit, they make a new friend—who may embody their future destiny.
Foregone Conflict, the second book in the new Across Horizons series, is for readers who love time travel adventures, strange alien societies, and unforgettable characters.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The Neanderthal elite control their own people by promoting perpetual warfare with unchallenged propaganda. It reminds me of how we are taught that easy long-term credit makes homes, college and medicine affordable when credit actually allows vendors to inflate prices until we are mortgage slaves for life.
Who to trust is a constant dilemma with Lincoln, Skyra and Ripple seeing different paths as desirable.
Readers of Obsolete Theorem will be rewarded with details on how Skyra and Lincoln predict imminent aggression in a manner more subtle than my own.
Skyra's vow to go with Lincoln to the ends of time or the ends of the Earth is heartwarming. I can't wait to see what comes next.

And this one has Skyra, the young Neanderthal woman whose existence apparently will have a critical impact on future events, plus the five human time-travelers, landing in a war zone with thousands of Neanderthals and Homo Sapiens at war, using clubs, stones, crude weapons…
But this is a Stan C. Smith novel, so sticking with the story always turns out well for the reader, and while Stan populates this Neanderthal-dominated locale with 40+ characters with pure awful names made up of random combinations of consonants and vowels (mainly the letters “a” and “u”) plus hyphens, you get a totally original storyline and unyielding suspense.
The book ends with the main characters moving ahead in time – about 55,000 years - and you will either be asking yourself, “Was that weird, or not?” and looking for something more conventional for your next read, or picking up a copy of Hostile Emergence and settling back into that same unsettling groove of finding out what happens next. That second one would be me.
