Publisher's summary

Timebeam to danger

Six hunters and two official guides are going on the trip of their lifetime.Their destination? Earth as it was 100 million years ago, long before human dominion, when the great hot-blooded dinosaurs ruled supreme.

Each of the time travelers has a different motive. Some are on the strange safari for pay. Others are taking a psychological and sexual holiday from civilization. There are women who wanted to show themselves the equal of men - and men out to test and prove their manhood.

But whatever their drives and desires, their strengths and weaknesses, the ultimate horror awaits them...deathbeast.

Mix of Moby Dick and The sound of Thunder

This is a not so great variant of Moby Dick with The sound of Thunder time traveling Dino hunt.
Boring characters no so bad narration.
Almost to none characters development nothing to care about them
The most interesting one was the prehistoric mouse
The bad Dino was so stereotype even Jurassic park one were more scary and interesting
Not bad but there is an idea this will be a great syfy channel or The asylum movie full of cheap special effects
I will watch it

Disappointing

This book started out well, as an interesting story that involved action and what not. But after about the halfway point it got very wordy and devolved from the actual action into a lot of personal reflection by the characters that really felt like it dragged on way too long. Overall I was disappointed in what had potential to be a really good story.
