The Miocene Arrow - Sean McMullen

The Miocene Arrow takes a look at North America in this Greatwinter world. This society has air travel of a sort, and a fedual type of system based around this. The Call affects most of the country most of the time, unlike Australia, so they have a lot more problems.

There is a mutant race in the world too, called aviads, and they, having some bird genetics, are immune to the Call and its siren song for mammals.

The main characters here are a couple of young pilot types, but the major players from Australia in terms of the bird-gene people do make their way here on an urgent mission.
