    What an enjoyable read that was Yep, there s a complex plot, but no deep hidden meanings that only the most cerebral of us mortals can glean This is, to me, an adventure story I like cooking so here s what you get Take about a pound of Star Trek, and an equal amount of Dr Who, then mix in a cupful of Land of the Lost and a handful of Deep Impact Sprinkle this liberally with Raiders of the Lost Ark and a soupcon of Gone With the Wind Shove that in the oven and out comes a nicely digestible What an enjoyable read that was Yep, there s a complex plot, but no deep hidden meanings that only the most cerebral of us mortals can glean This is, to me, an adventure story I like cooking so here s what you get Take about a pound of Star Trek, and an equal amount of Dr Who, then mix in a cupful of Land of the Lost and a handful of Deep Impact Sprinkle this liberally with Raiders of the Lost Ark and a soupcon of Gone With the Wind Shove that in the oven and out comes a nicely digestible version of Dragon Dawn.From page one, it s obvious the author has researched her topic, as anyone with the smarts of Deborah O Neill would This makes for an eminently readable story spiced up with believable science I liked her writing style and at times I found myself laughing out loud With a delicate technique, like the kind her terriers used on a particularly interesting turd, the dinosaur sniffed her hair and face, then her armpitAt other times, I found myself running for Google to read the latest theories on feathered dinosaurs, or when exactly, the big ol space rock wiped out the dinos, or what we d look like if we descended from Troodons a clever little dino Hmm would I look like a big chicken trying to type with just six fingers in total If you like adventurous, dystopian, time travel, space travel, alien invasion, pre post apocalyptic novels, then this is your dream Put it on your to read list Great Job Deb

    Reading about time travel can sometimes make my head spin with its complexities and paradoxes But, not so with this excellently written tale of space exploration, time travel, alternate universes and prehistoric times The author has obviously done an incredible amount of research into her subject and has woven it all into a fascinating, rich, lush tapestry that held me enthralled from start to finish.The world building was amazing, whether it was the futuristic realm of spaceships and distant Reading about time travel can sometimes make my head spin with its complexities and paradoxes But, not so with this excellently written tale of space exploration, time travel, alternate universes and prehistoric times The author has obviously done an incredible amount of research into her subject and has woven it all into a fascinating, rich, lush tapestry that held me enthralled from start to finish.The world building was amazing, whether it was the futuristic realm of spaceships and distant planets, or the equally intriguing world of prehistoric dinosaurs Ms O Neill Cordes effortlessly catapulted me from one world to the other on a thrilling, breathtaking ride.Science fiction can sometimes be a bit too technical and complex for my liking, but this was a wonderful blend of hard science and mystical fantasy And, I loved it I have no hesitation at all in giving this vastly entertaining book 5 amazing stars

    Michael Crichton Meets Carl SaganWhere to begin where to begin there aren t enough things to say about this story to do it justice Complex, vividly drawn, and fantastical, Dragon Dawn weaves together a time travel tale that, in my opinion, is so much .Multiverses, paleontology, evil forces, and action all play a part in Deborah O Neill Cordes intricate but very believable tale that mixes the suspense filled dinosaur genre penned by Crichton with the scientific suppositions presented by Sag Michael Crichton Meets Carl SaganWhere to begin where to begin there aren t enough things to say about this story to do it justice Complex, vividly drawn, and fantastical, Dragon Dawn weaves together a time travel tale that, in my opinion, is so much .Multiverses, paleontology, evil forces, and action all play a part in Deborah O Neill Cordes intricate but very believable tale that mixes the suspense filled dinosaur genre penned by Crichton with the scientific suppositions presented by Sagan More than that, it s clear that the author has done her homework and has a true love for science fiction to the point that one can t do anything but imagine this book playing out on a big screen.Give this one a ride Dragon Dawn will take you on a trip beyond your wildest dreams
