CATASTROPHE! The first book in the ILLOREAEN series
The experiences suffered by Questa, Orrox and Anja during a super-volcano eruption, grips the reader’s attention in this convincing novel.
Can any of the Clans survive the combined onslaught of nature and of other humans competing to survive the Catastrophe and ensuing volcanic winter?
Would their superior intelligence and abilities be of any use?
Questa’s problems begin early, when she is abducted by Giant Neanderthals.
Orrox, the benevolent heir to the ruling Dynasty, feels responsible for the Clans but has limited choices.
Anja’s Clan habitat is destroyed. She has to escape from her devastated Clan valley and find other survivors or perish.
Only a secret, technology advanced Clan called the ILLOREAENS, is relatively unaffected by the Catastrophe and can possibly assist.
Set against the beauty of the fertile, south facing valleys of the Great Mountains during the Ice age, the reader will be haunted by the scope of the disaster that eradicated most human species 74 000 years ag
CATASTROPHE is a pre-historical novel that realistically depicts the events and conditions during the greatest catastrophe ever to befall humankind. 74 000 years ago the Toba volcanic eruption had a worldwide effect that reduced the number of humanoid survivors to only a few breeding pairs, unlikely to survive through the resulting volcanic winter that lasted for up to a thousand years.
A few intelligent Clans lived in the fertile valleys of what we now call the Caucasus Mountains. The shock waves of the Toba Super Volcano eruption caused earth quakes, tsunamis and a destructive wind storm, which triggered sympathetic eruptions of volcanoes all over the world.
In the ensuing chaos the different hominid species and groups attacked and exterminate each other in their quest for the diminishing resources.
How can the Clans survive?
