Book one in a new series from the creator of the best-selling Freehold Universe series.
A military unit is thrust back into Paleolithic times with only their guns and portable hardware. Ten soldiers on convoy in Afghanistan suddenly find themselves lost in time. Somehow they arrived in Earth's Paleolithic Asia. With no idea how they arrived or how to get back, the shock of the event is severe. They discover groups of the similarly displaced: imperial Romans, Neolithic Europeans, and a small cadre of East Indian peasants.
Despite their technological advantage, the soldiers only have 10 people and know no way home. Then two more time travelers arrive from a future far beyond the present. These time travelers may have the means to get back, but they aren't giving it up. In fact they may have a treacherous agenda of their own, one that may very well lead to the death of the displaced in a harsh and dangerous era.

A very fast paced novel full of really interesting anthropological and historical bits. The cast of characters was a bit confusing at the beginning, but sorted itself out well by about 1/3 of the way through. There is a listing of the various characters at the back of the book. There are a lot of military acronyms, most of which are familiar to anyone with experience in the military or having ready anything about the military or mil-sf. There is also a glossary in the back.
The main characters were well developed. But at 10 they kind of blended together at the beginning. As I got farther into the book each was fleshed out better and took on their own personality. Even the characters that I didn't particularly care for were well done and it was easy to understand their perspective. The issues of survival, especially finding food, were well detailed. Construction techniques were explained well enough to understand the problems and solutions. The pacing was excellent. I didn't want to put the book down at night.
The eBook was formatted well with no obvious spelling or grammar errors.
Lots of angst by the 2 female soldiers concerned that their fellow soldiers will eventually break discipline and have their way with them. Interesting descriptions of how they make do upgrading their initially primitive camp and how thy interact with their neighbors. Good character delineation and development. The denouement does not disappoint.
