About the book
Younger Dryas is a ficitional novel set at the onset of the younger dryas glacial freeze – 12,800 years ago. The book is based on research from Graham Hancock.
It’s 10,817 BC
A comet stuck in earth’s orbit has just broken apart. In less than a season the earth will collide with a gauntlet of debris. Carnage is guaranteed.
Luckily, the Viracochan star watchers — specialists from an advanced people settled in Gunung Padang, Indonesia — have been expecting the skies to turn for some time.
In anticipation of the disaster, they send 3 arcs to 3 destinations: Egypt, Angkor Wat and Nazca. The mission of each crew is to settle with the natives and to build a pyramid — a school of knowledge — to protect their sacred learnings.
Younger Dryas is based on research covered by Graham Hancock in his books: Fingerprints of the Gods, Magicians of the Gods, and America Before.
The story is told from the perspective of The Storyteller — a Viracochan specialist — sent to Nazca with the task of winning the native’s hearts and minds, so they will agree to help build a new Viracochan civilisation when the stonemasons arrive.
Accompanied by 50 specialists, 100 combat men, and a head full of stories about a machine that takes people to the stars, he thinks it will be easy… but that’s all about to change when he meets the boy from the cloud forest.
