HERD is a 4-book series set in the Stone Age. Homo-Vampyrus – the most deadly humans ever to evolve have become the dominant species amongst the Great Apes. They feast upon their relatives with no remorse, hunting Homo-Sapiens to near extinction. Herd tells the story of this time. A story when starvation and disease ravages Vampyrus society. A story when charismatic leaders present radical solutions. A story when a group of Homo-Sapiens refused to be part of a herd, and instead becomes a tribe.
