About Younger Dryas

Younger Dryas is a novel set at the onset of the younger dryas glacial freeze—12,800 years ago. 

It’s 10,817 BC

A star has become trapped in Earth’s orbit and broken apart. In less than a season fragments will collide with Earth, carnage is guaranteed.

Viracochan star watchers, aware of the impending disaster, send 3 arcs to 3 destinations: Egyptai, Angkor Watai and Nazcai. The mission of each crew is to settle with the natives and to build a Viracochan civilisation and pyramid—a school of knowledge. Their aim to assemble a machine spanning the length of Earth that can put an end to the impending destruction.

Accompanied by 50 specialists, 100 combat men, and a head full of stories about a machine that can take men to the stars, Kon-Tiki—the narrator, a specialist storyteller—thinks it will be easy. But that’s all about to change when he meets Jung, the boy from The Cloud Forest. 

Younger Dryas is based on research covered by Graham Hancock in his books: Fingerprints of the Gods, Magicians of the Gods, and America Before.
