Transcendence Review

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.

Shay Savage, I love your writing and your mind. This book was so much and so many emotions came out while reading it. I am not sure how to explain it but its SO good.  A MUST read of 2014!!  I absolutely adored the premise of this book. A caveman? It's such a unique idea and the author really made it work.
It has been a couple of months since I've read this book.  I've had this review ready, but then I would change it because I felt like my words could not give this book justice.  Edh is an actual caveman; the book is set in Prehistoric time.  After his tribe was destroyed, he became its lone survivor.  He has been so lonely and longs to have a female companionship along with intimacy. One day he finds he's mate... Beh is in one of the traps he has set for food. Beh is dressed differently than him and makes these strange noises that Edh does not understand. Edh is the ultimate Alpha. He wants to protect Beh to the best of he's ability, any way he can. As they start to get adjusted to each other, they start to experience love for each other. Even though there was no dialogue; you could really tell how much they loved each other. They make a great couple and their smoking hot romance grew quickly and perfectly. The storyline was so exciting and different from anything that I have read. There was no way I was putting it down! Ehd and Beh captured my heart and I didn't want to stop reading their story.  The only problem is that I wish we could've got more of Beh's POV.  

Most importantly, I was HIGHLY impressed with this book.  It has everything, a well developed plot, strong characters, and a sexy sweet romance.  I was completely blown away by this book and Shay Savage.  The book stands out from all the other fantasy books.  This is a must read for everyone! It will blow you away and leave you craving for more of Ehd and Beh!
