Overview

This novel is based around the period of 30,000 - 40,000 years ago, at about the period when the Neanderthals were thought to have either died out or interbred with the Homo-sapiens that were becoming the more dominant species. It has been strongly suggested that by interbreeding, the stronger human gene eventually bred out the Neanderthal race. It's also been proven by DNA that the human race obtained our immune system from the interbreeding with Neanderthals.
