THE MYSTERIES OF THE UNKNOWN ACTIONmysteries of the unknown Action Adventure these words truly describe this book as it is a struggle to survive in an unknown areaThe Stone Age This plot of this novel centres around the accidental transportation of Rab a teenager from the distant future back to Stone Age Orkney It is told from the points of view of Rab and another two characters a young woman named Cait who finds Rab injured on the beach and an older woman named Voy who is the village healer Voy and Cait look after Rab and speculate that he might be a selkie a mythical creature who can take the form of a seal or a human Selkies are believed to bring luck and the villagers hope that Rab will improve their harvests and secure the future of the community However Rab is desperate to return home This proves to be far from easy and he lives in the village for an extended period of time developing a relationship with Cait The book provides the reader with interesting perspectives on both the past and the future It was fascinating to read this novel recommended by an Orcadian friend just after I had seen the places mentioned in it I am not sure I would have understood or appreciated it to the same degree if I were ignorant about the history and geography of this place But it is.

ReRab thousands of years from home injured and desperate must learn fast about this ancient world What started as a high tech study trip has turned into a struggle to surviv.
