Publisher's Summary

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!

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.

Engaging plot not just for kids!

This book brings you right in from the very beginning. Somehow an under world becomes believable and your mind starts to imagine what if and then another world comes into view! Don't leave the excitement for the kids, adults will thoroughly enjoy this book also. And teachers I understand from the author's blog there are lesson plans to go along with this book!
And once again I love Emma Galvin's work. I highly recommend this book!

Life After Jurassic Park!

This was a fun story with interesting twists and turns. The reader was ok but she had very little idea of how to properly inflect her voice so the story had a strange rhythm to it.

Action packed

This story was exciting and engaging with quite a bit of suspense. If you enjoy suspense, action, adventure and dinosaurs you should check this book out.

Awesome book

this is what my 9 yr old son had to say: this is an awesome book, I'd want to listen to it 1,000 times in a row - but of course that would get boring so we have to listen to the next one.
and my 10yr old daughter: this was a really awesome book. I am glad that I learned about dinosaurs so I can picture them easier when I'm listening - but she also describes them pretty well. Can't wait to listen to the next book.

Great Series Start

Laura Martin's debut has lots of action as the main characters navigate a future Earth dominated by dinosaurs on an increasingly complicated mission. Martin clearly knows her middle grade audience, and has a nice balance of character development and action that kept me reading, finishing within a couple of days. Emma Galvin does a very competent job of narration. I think this will be a popular series in my fifth grade classroom!
