Historical fiction, Action & adventure, Hybrid & other, Literary fiction, Young adult, General fiction | Paperback, eBook


The plains of Africa, 43,000 years BC - the dawn of human culture: death stalks the hunting grounds, striking at the elders, the leaders and the wise ones. A power struggle will determine the future of the Koriba. Can Temfe, the chief’s son, unite the tribes? Can he lead them across the desert? And save his father, poisoned and dying, his spirit lost in shadow? Should he trust Yorodjan, the scarred, one-eyed seer who worships the death birds? Who flies as a vulture in the other-worlds? Enemies surround Temfe. Some fight with spears and flint blades. Others with poison, curses and betrayal. All of them determined to control his tribe, to seize its lands, destroy its people. To save the Koriba, Temfe must learn the ways of the shaman, cross into the vision-worlds, defend the ancestors and defeat a murderer who wields malign power. A prehistoric adventure for adults and young adults alike.
