Publisher's Summary

Like the "Dark Continent" of Africa, the dark island of Madagascar holds many chilling secrets. One of them is a long-thought extinct species of dinosaurs living at the country's core.  

A massive earthquake rocks the mountain range within the Andringitra National Park. The splitting Earth reveals a network of tunnels, hidden away for millennia. Responding to the series of violent upheavals, a pack of hypersensitive predators flee their subterranean home; frenzied and hungry, they head for the surface.   

Former Navy SEAL Ian Hunt begrudgingly accepts an offer to lead an exploratory team. What they uncover is the find of a lifetime... if they survive long enough to tell anyone.   

Dinosaurs are alive and well at the heart of the dark island.

Good For Teenagers

I feel this story has been told so many times, this is a good book for teenagers who are new to the storyline. The narration was very slow, lots of pauses and I think one was supposed to be an Australian.

Please, make this a movie or television series

Loved it. Great book, I hope you have a sequel coming soon. I will purchase the digital/audio as soon as it comes out! I got to find out what happens when Ian and his group go back in.

Lasted 5 minutes

Had to strain to hear the narrators voice. Soft, feminine and quick little bursts. I couldn't handle it after the first 5 minutes. May have been a good book if a Jack Reacher type narrator was behind the wheel.
