A group of researchers led by Dr. Emmanuel Hernandez gains a permit to visit the quarantined Ilha da Morte to prove either the truth or the fallacy of the whispered rumors of a giant lizard that lurks within the dark, unexplored jungles.
One problem after another plagues their mission, starting with their boat sinking during the landing, followed immediately by the loss of their satellite phone and the death of a team member. The expedition, now cut off from the world, takes a more dangerous turn when hooting and roaring in the night reveals not only that the animal they seek is real, but that there’s more than one.
And they come closer each night.
The creatures soon prove to be the least of the team’s problems after encountering another group intent on keeping the island–and everything on it–secret from the rest of the world, even if they have to kill to accomplish it.

About the Author
I was born in St. Paul, Minnesota in 1972. Growing up, I developed a love for world history while entertained by countless movies and series based on it. The reality of what occurred, however, was quite different, and much more interesting than anything Hollywood put out. I have a great passion for traveling and understanding other cultures and people. The places that tend to lure me the most are not those known for their scenic beauty, but for their history. Whether it be the sites of ancient battlefields, preserved buildings where historic laws were signed, or the graves of those men and women who reshaped and changed our world, count me in as a willing visitor.

I have never read anything by this author before, the cover caught my attention as I’ve loved dinosaurs for as long as I can remember. This expedition seems to have been cursed from the get-go, which only served to make it more intriguing to me. It’s an interesting plot and there is no shortage of action, adventure, suspense and danger in this plot. I enjoyed the fast pace of the story and the author did a great job in building the world and the characters. It does end in a cliffhanger, I tend not to like those when they are sprung on me, I much rather have the author tell me this important fact in the blurb. That being said I am looking forward to book 2. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
In reality, I am a 59-year-old woman but I still like things like a young boy (haha). Things like dinosaurs. I am thinking it is because I raised 2 boys (no girls) and they taught me what fun is. So I loved this book! It would be so awesome to see a live dinosaur, at least until they try to eat you. Great story, well-written and I loved the characters.
