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!
