I'm trying to remember the title of a fantasy novel I read about 15-20 years ago that featured both Neanderthals and Homo sapiens. The Neanderthals had a magical connection to the land and some form of magic that related to the moon, while the Homo sapiens had no such magic. If memory serves, the Homo sapiens were killing off the Neanderthals, effectively wiping out magic from the world.
It is highly likely that the book was published between 1992 and 1997 (a period during which I was reading a lot of new fiction and writing reviews). I keep thinking the title had the word "moon" in it, but that may be a red herring.
Unfortunately, I don't remember much more about the story. Any thoughts?
