Transcendence by Shay Savage

Title: Transcendence
Author: Shay Savage
Series: none
Genre: historical romance, time travel

It’s said that women and men are from two different planets when it comes to communication, but how can they overcome the obstacles of prehistoric times when one of them simply doesn’t have the ability to comprehend language?

Ehd’s a caveman living on his own in a harsh wilderness. He’s strong and intelligent, but completely alone. When he finds a beautiful young woman in his pit trap, it’s obvious to him that she is meant to be his mate. He doesn’t know where she came from; she’s wearing some pretty odd clothing, and she makes a lot of noises with her mouth that give him a headache. Still, he’s determined to fulfill his purpose in life – provide for her, protect her, and put a baby in her.

Elizabeth doesn’t know where she is or exactly how she got there. She’s confused and distressed by her predicament, and there’s a caveman hauling her back to his cavehome. She’s not at all interested in Ehd’s primitive advances, and she just can’t seem to get him to listen. No matter what she tries, getting her point across to this primitive, but beautiful, man is a constant – and often hilarious – struggle.

With only each other for company, they must rely on one another to fight the dangers of the wild and prepare for the winter months. As they struggle to coexist, theirs becomes a love story that transcends language and time.

The author has created something magical here!!


Transcendence is an incredible love story taking place in a pre-historic era. It is a story of survival, unfathomable love and a strong emotional connection between two people from a different period of time.

Edh is a lone survivor of a forest fire wiping off his entire tribe. He barely survives in a cave with almost no human contact, harsh winter and diminishing food force. He is suddenly startled by a noise coming from the pit he dug to trap animals. Once he reaches the source of the sound, he finds a female with strange clothes and making a lot of noises with her mouth. Deciding she should be his mate, he carries her to his cave and starts tending to her needs.

‘Elizabeth’ or ‘Beh’ is traveled way back in time. She is confused to be in presence of a caveman, the only human being she comes across but he can hardly understand anything she says. Ehd finds his mate to be strange, unlike any women from his tribe. She gives him a constant headache with the noises she makes. However, he is determined to prove to her that he is a capable mate and wants her to like him.
“In the darkness of the cave, there is a light inside her eyes that makes my heart beat faster. I know the emotions I see there are also reflected in my own gaze though I have never felt this way before. Beh softly repeats the same three sounds, followed by my name-sound.”
The inevitable misunderstanding between them due to lack of communication was hilarious and cute at times. Ehd's constant need to put a baby in Beh was something that never ceased to put a smile on my face. The story was told from Ehd point of view giving an insight into his innocent thoughts, raw desire and tangible emotions making you fall in luffs with him too.

I wished we had few chapters for Beh’s pov, I really wanted to hear her thoughts but then I think the author was trying to show the unconditional love of Edh which goes beyond words. The whole point of this story was to experience the feeling of love that transcends time and language.
