Dinosaur Wars is one of the best adventure stories I have read in a long time. The dinosaurs are realistic and very scary. The heroes are great. They are a male/female pair who could be played by Brad Pitt and Jennifer Love Hewett! He is a wildlife biologist (a noble profession) and she is a paleontology student at Montana State -- the perfect pair to get involved with dinosaurs -- and each other! The romance is light and well written and the characters are great. Not the evil, troubled types so common these days. My favorite scene: Kit fends off a T-rex while Chase loads his rifle. Sca-a-a-ry!

This book is a gem by a new author. Not only are the dinosaurs scary and the action fast-paced, but the main characters are great. Dinosaur Wars reads like an Indiana Jones movie, non-stop action except for bits of romance and comic relief. Very well done! Suitable for any age group.

I actually got this first as a free download for my nook, but I still like to read the "hard copy" versions too. This is like Jurassic Park but the dinos come back to earth from outer space. I think a lot of people would like this book. There are all kinds of characters. Dinosaur invaders (the Kra) and U.S. Army soldiers, of course, but also a Yellowstone Park ranger and a cattle-rancher's daughter, who get caught up in the center of things. A really very compelling plot too, with lots of scary dino scenes but also a little light romance. It's fun!

First of all, let me admit to you that I am the author, so the five star rating should be no surprise. However, if you enjoyed the action, adventure and romance of Star Wars, then you might find yourself agreeing with my rating. In Dinosaur Wars, a species of intelligent, human sized dinosaurs returns from space to reclaim their home world -- OUR WORLD! They bring with them all the other great beasts of the Cretaceous Era; now humans are the endangered species! Enter two young heroes, wildlife biologist CHASE ARMSTRONG and Montana rancher¿s daughter KIT DANIELS. Together with their crusty old mentor, paleontologist Dr. David Ogilvey, they are beleaguered mankind¿s last hope. As worldwide confrontation moves to its climax in the underground catacombs of the lost city of Arran-Kra, an intelligent dinosaur ally, Gar the Kra, joins Kit and Chase. The heroes must survive attacks by T-rex and deadly megaraptors (the book¿s science is fully up-to-date, including feathered dinosaurs). There is plenty of fast-paced action, sweetened by a budding relationship between Kit and Chase. In the end . . . (well, I¿d better stop here). -- Thomas P. Hopp
