REVIEW: Transcendence by Shay Savage

Transcendence by Shay Savage

Genre: Pre-historical Romance

Release date: February 14th 2014

Purchase: Amazon US / Amazon UK   


It’s said that women and men are from two different planets when it comes to communication, but how can they overcome the obstacles of prehistoric times when one of them simply doesn’t have the ability to comprehend language?

Ehd’s a caveman living on his own in a harsh wilderness. He’s strong and intelligent, but completely alone. When he finds a beautiful young woman in his pit trap, it’s obvious to him that she is meant to be his mate. He doesn’t know where she came from; she’s wearing some pretty odd clothing, and she makes a lot of noises with her mouth that give him a headache. Still, he’s determined to fulfill his purpose in life – provide for her, protect her, and put a baby in her.

Elizabeth doesn’t know where she is or exactly how she got there. She’s confused and distressed by her predicament, and there’s a caveman hauling her back to his cavehome. She’s not at all interested in Ehd’s primitive advances, and she just can’t seem to get him to listen. No matter what she tries, getting her point across to this primitive, but beautiful, man is a constant – and often hilarious – struggle.

With only each other for company, they must rely on one another to fight the dangers of the wild and prepare for the winter months. As they struggle to coexist, theirs becomes a love story that transcends language and time.

* 5 STARS * Review:

Shay Savage is master of writing untraditional, unconventional and unforgettable stories. And Transcedence definitely proves it.

What happens when lonely caveman Ehd finds strange girl near his cave? He takes her as his mate. But how will he make her like him when they cannot communicate? And so starts this original and exciting journey of two souls that might or might not be destined for each other...

Transcendence is one of the most unique and interesting books I have ever read. I’m not sure if there is something similar out there. It was extremely fascinating experience to read about real caveman, his thinking, his way of living. And the most surprising thing of all? The fact that Ehd was sweet, caring and very sensitive person.

Yes, Ehd was manly man and made me laugh quite often with the way he was seeing things. I am used to jerk-like arrogant heroes in Mrs. Savage’s books and I love them. But Ehd was nothing like that. Yet, he really grew on me quickly and made an excellent narrator for this story.

But most importantly, Transcendence is an epic love story. Sounds unbeliavable when it comes to pre-historic times? This fictional story proves that true love can overcome all differences. It was emotional, powerful and all kinds of beautiful.

And a little note/fact/warning about this book so it does not catch you unprepared. Taking into consideration that we are talking about pre-historic times in this book, there is visible lack of real dialogues, conversations or direct speech. But believe me, it does not reduce the captivity of this novel. On contrary, it makes it even more special and unique!
