Reviews for "A New Dawn" released in October 2006.
"A New Dawn" is a smooth transition from the novel "Grandfather's Song" by Jake George. We plunge into the "Old World" where
the Lenape and other tribes have chosen to travel to in order to help return the balance between man and nature that has
fallen apart in the "Above World". The tribes must struggle to adapt,
for many have forgotten the old ways or long for the life they left behind.
There's an environmental and "life lessons" theme pulsing through the novel, but it is far from being preachy. The interaction
between the characters is fast-paced
and extremely engaging. Those who have returned to the Old World do not have a completely peaceful existence. In fact, there
are brutal murders and deep
seeded problems that must be solved, many of them involving great sacrifice by some members of the tribe.
I thoroughly enjoyed this sequel! The setting, characters and blend of Native American traditions simply flows along in a
swift current of vigorous language.
Jake George has a vision and an obvious love for the Lenape People that shines through in his writing. His tense action
scenes and tight dialogue has an edgy
quality that reminds me of some of my favorite westerns. The graphic torture scenes, erotica, and some harsh language, etc.
cautions "mature audiences only".
Adult readers new to Jake George novels will find their appetites craving more...

Jake George has a way of including some surprising twists and turns in "Grandfather's Song." It is not only filled with
fascinating Native lore but has complex
human nature. I highly recommend it. The characters are well developed. Jake George writes so that you can see the novel
unfolding before your eyes.
I also know that there is a follow on book coming and I was fortunate to read it in its draft form. Keep your eyes peeled
for "A New Dawn." I was as glued to
it as I was to "The DaVinci Code." It was an exciting, fast paced, dynamite novel. Read Grandfather's Song and get prepared
for "A New Dawn."
What a story!
