This book is actually a collection of two different stories, so I will look at them each in my review.

The first story is 'The Last Hunter'.
Stories set before written time have a place set aside in my heart for them. These tales take a bit of research to compose without having it come across as an unrealistic tale with wild cavemen running around with mammoths or some other tomfoolery. Cooley has done a good job of doing enough research to project a realistic environment for his characters to in

I've been listening to this author on the Dead Robots Society podcast for years and finally made the time to check out a small collection of Garaaga's Children work.

I'm hooked.

He has a very distinct style of writing which I enjoyed. The stories were succinct, well-written and help create a primer of sorts to his mythology. I very much look forward to diving into the books themselves next.

I didn't really understand some of it, the enemies mainly, and the action scene of the first story was confusing for me but that's okay. Since this is the first book of the series I guess it makes sense that you might not understand it all. Or maybe it's just me and I just have to think about it more. Thinking the story over again did help me understand it better then when I was listening to it in the moment so yeah, could just be me being slow. ;) Anyway, I liked the ending.
