Meet the Author

Thomas P. Hopp was born in Seattle, Washington, where he lived his earliest years in a housing project on the banks of the Duwamish River. Good grades at West Seattle High School and the University of Washington as well as a perfect score on the Graduate Record Examination got him into the Biochemistry Ph.D. program at Cornell University Medical College. Dr. Hopp studied genetic engineering at Rockefeller University and then helped found the multi-billion-dollar biotechnology company, Immunex Corporation. He discovered and patented genes for the immune stimulating hormone interleukin one. He also created genetically altered animals with human genes as well as the first commercially successful nanotechnology device, a molecular handle called the Flag epitope. He worked in the field with paleontologist Jack Horner, excavating bones of the nest-building duckbilled dinosaur Maiasaura. He published scientific articles on his brooding-to-flight hypothesis, in which wing feathers of birds developed first for nesting and then for flying. He plays guitar and bass, and has performed onstage with blues legend John Lee Hooker and rock super-groups The Kingsmen and The Drifters. He has lived in San Diego and on Manhattan Island, but now lives near Seattle.

    Interesting, but ...

    When you reach the end, it's apparent there's a sequel. BUT here's the rub. It's not available in Nookbooks, and BN wants $21.73 for the paperback.

    For this reason, I find it hard to recommend it. It's well enough written, fairly interesting, but incomplete, and a bit simplistic towards the end ... actually most of the way through.

    Be forewarned.

    Easy read but...

    If most of the armed services personnel survived as did the government, where were they? So do the dumb dinos not eat the smart ones or does everyone eat everybody? Glad the author didn't force any sex. Not that i don't like sex, but not with my dinosaurs.

    Good read

    This was a good read, however, the author used the words 'gonna' and 'gotta' nonstop. It became irritating. The older, high ranking characters use of language was immature to the point of breaking suspension of disbelief.

    Great read!!

    Great read and very entertaining. Do not listen to the reviewer that you have to pay for the second book. A little research would have went a long way here - this book is the first and second book combined. This is edition 3. Grab this book now and read it!!

    Great plot developement - need the next book on Nook, please

    The story starts with a cast of many, thins them out, and makes you care about or despise those that remain. This story is good enough to make me want more.

    Is this the second book?

    Thomas P. Hopp also wrote a book called Dinosaur Wars: Counter Attack. Does anyone know if that book will be on Nook? Or if this book is the second of the series?

    Fun read!

    The cover does this book justice, a t-rex, tanks, & a galloping cowgirl. It made me ask the question, how? The author does a creative & entertaining job of bringing the three eras together with some good twists with only a few predictable moments.

    Very nicely done.

    Could not have gone better. I felt that dinos and science fiction like this was a concept long overdue. Really good. Loved it.

    War of the Worlds meets Jurassic Park, with attitude.

    Loved Dinosaurs in my youth, and this brought that childish interest back, near my Senior years... A great story.. Highly Recommended !!
