Jurassic World meets Dawn of the Planet of the Apes in this epic new middle grade series full of heart-pounding action and breathtaking chills! "Amazing adventures!" raves Brightly.com as they recommend Edge of Extinction as a 2016 Holiday Gift for Tween Readers.
One hundred and fifty years ago, the first dinosaurs were cloned. Soon after, they replaced humans at the top of the food chain. The only way to survive was to move into underground compounds. . . .
Five years ago, Sky Mundy’s father vanished from North Compound without a trace. Now she has just stumbled on a clue that not only suggests his disappearance is just the tip of an even larger mystery, but also points directly to the surface. To find her dad—and possibly even save the world—Sky and her best friend, Shawn, must break out of their underground home and venture topside to a land reclaimed by nature and ruled by dinosaurs.
Perfect for fans of Brandon Mull, Lisa McMann, and Rick Riordan, this exhilarating debut novel follows two courageous friends who must survive in a lost world that’s as dangerous as they’ve always feared but also unlike anything they could ever have imagined.

If you are looking for an action packed book with a lot of heart, look no further. Compares with Rick Riordan’s The Lightening Thief, Edge of Extinction draws you in from the first line and doesn’t let you go until the very last page. With a spunky protagonist who finds herself thrust into a world where humans are no longer at the top of the food chain, it’s a fresh spin on dinosaurs for lovers of Jurassic Park. Even the most reluctant of reader would be hard pressed to put this book down with the world that Martin crafted with such detail and imagination. This one needs to go on every kid’s summer reading this year, boy or girl.
This is an incredibly descriptive and intriguing book! I felt like I was right there in the action the whole time and was a serious page turner. There were also surprises throughout the book that were completely unpredictable. I can't wait to read the second book to see what happens! Great read for all ages, parents too. If you are looking for a book for your children this summer, I am certain they will sit long enough to finish this book!
