The Dinosaur Lords by Victor Milan
Paperback – Tor Books – Jun2016 – 592 pages
A world made by the Eight Creators on which to play out their games of passion and power, Paradise is a sprawling, diverse, often brutal place. Men and women live on Paradise as do dogs, cats, ferrets, goats, and horses. But dinosaurs predominate: wildlife, monsters, beasts of burden–and of war. Colossal plant-eaters like Brachiosaurus; terrifying meat-eaters like Allosaurus, and the most feared of all, Tyrannosaurus rex. Giant lizards swim warm seas. Birds (some with teeth) share the sky with flying reptiles that range in size from bat-sized insectivores to majestic and deadly Dragons.
Seeking to secure the Fanged Throne, Emperor Felipe sets off a series of wars in Paradise, a land dominated by dinosaurs, as Princess Melodia, the emperor’s daughter, Rob Korrigan, a dinosaur master, fallen hero Karyl Bogomirskiy, and Imperial Champion Jaume all compete for victory.
The first in a new series. George R. R. Martin said “It’s like a cross between Jurassic Park and Game of Thrones”
