Publisher's Summary

My name is Michael Claymore, former convicted felon and active duty space marine.

When the histories are studied by those happy few who inherit the galaxy we have left them with, my hope is that they look favorably, perhaps even with a bit of mirth, upon we poor souls who fought side by side with the mighty dinosaurs of Battle Force Jurassic.

The Invaders emerged from somewhere beyond the Milky Way and started conquering everything in sight. They brought with them massive kaiju monsters that made every Godzilla movie pale in comparison. These things would smash through our cities, gobbling up every human being, nuclear plant, or electrical tower they could find. In their wake came legions of alien infantry outfitted with body armor and ray guns, who stalked the ruins looking for survivors.

It was all our modern military could to just to hold them back, and even that cost us dearly. Humanity was in the deep dark stank of it, and some desperate scientists came up with a crazy idea. We needed not only a way to fight back effectively, but a symbol of power to rally around.

When a Tyrannosaurus Rex joins your team, especially one armed with missile launchers and mini-guns, you know it's business time.

    "A Surprising Treasure"

    I went into this with zero expectations. I don't know if I would normally have looked at this, except I received this free in exchange for a review. I am glad to say that I honestly really enjoyed this! J. Scott Bennett is an awesome narrator. He differentiates characters and action in a way that is exactly how I want the book to be read. It meshes well with my mind.

    The book starts marginally slow, but builds quickly. I found myself curious, involved, and then riveted to the content. Seriously, I figured dinosaurs in combat was going to be ridiculous and cheap. Instead, I found it, to my thinking, much more like Pacific Rim on a galactic level, but with Dinosaurs armed for battle rather than giant robots. Our Kaiju vs. the aliens. Awesome! The book's action is never in a space battle. This is futuristic ground combat staged on various worlds. There are some alien tactics and thinking, and a whole lot of good, sound, Earth logic from our Raptor soldiers.

    I tend to love military fiction, especially military Sci-Fi, and that's where this falls. I'm thrilled i got the opportunity to listen and I am hoping for a series! I'd gladly buy into the next books. I recommend!

    The story is set in the future when most of the populous has left Earth to live in better conditions on various terraformed planets, we first meet our protagonist as he kills someone while robbing a bank in an impoverished area of Earth. This protagonist is seen as an antihero

    "An interesting start to an exciting series."

    I enjoyed this book and have been using it for my daily commute. This book features the lives of marines serving in a penal military force that adapts to the invading force by implementing DNA copied dinosaurs with scifi enhancements. I enjoyed the series although from time to time I feel like the Author: Isaac Stone, struggled with how to impart the technological advances without having to reference older comparissons which feels forced from the modern stand point. All in all this was a fun listen and I certainly hope to be able to experience the rest of the series as it comes. Long live the legend Terry the Trex!

    "A silly dystopian Sci-Fi with Dinosaurs!"

    I had no idea what to expect going in to this book, but I love mech stories and I enjoy a good dinosaur story, and this combines both creating a highly entertaining listen that kept me hooked from the beginning. This book takes the alien invasion theme, cranks up the silly, and adds its own blend of originality. I found the pacing moved along nicely, making this a book you could listen to in one sitting. I would love to listen to more if the author decides to turn it into a series. The narrator does a great job with this story and his voice is perfect for the main character. He also does a great job with different voices and accents for each characters, so it’s easy to keep with who’s who. Overall, I’m glad I had the opportunity to listen to this book and I hope the author turns it in to a series.

    "3.5* - enjoyable lite futuristic military fiction"
    Any additional comments?

    If you're expecting this book to contain an overarching moral message about humanity or patriotism in your military fiction, this is not the book for you. If you're expecting intense human drama, emotional introspection, page after page of blood-splattering gore, understanding the motives of the opponent, and/or detailed descriptions of weapons and battle tactics, you won't find it here.

    What you have is a war with an alien species, where our hero has zero military experience and volunteered to fight so that he could get out of jail. He completes some basic training and gets tossed into the thick of things in high risk deployments. He tries to make the best decisions that he can - sometimes people die, and sometimes he gets lucky.

    Other reviewers compared the book's premise to the movie 'Pacific Rim' and I can definitely understand that. I enjoyed this book in a similar way that I enjoyed Pacific Rim. We have an alien invasion that we're ill-equipped to deal with, so we have to try something different. Who cares about the motives of the aliens; they're killing us and we have to stop them. DinoMechs does that in an entertaining, thought-experiment kind of way. I can picture SyFy making a movie about this - it's entertainment. I doubt (hope!) the author never intended this to be 'War and Peace'-style classical literature. If this were the first installment of a longer series, I'd be much more nitpicky about things like character development and moral messages, the context, role of governments, providing a POV or perspective of a dino rider, etc. Also, I have no military experience so I'm not in a position to comment on technical accuracy of the military aspects of the story.

    It was a cool way to pass a few hours. I listened to this audiobook on my iPod while picking dandelions outside and it made my chore vastly more enjoyable. I can see that this book might be unsatisfying for some readers, but I went in with zero expectations. I saw the dinosaur on the front cover and wanted to read a story about good-guy dinosaurs tearing up alien forces and alien dinosaurs, and I got what I wanted :)

    The narrator was quite good. I played the audiobook at a slightly faster playback speed to make his drawl a little less drawl-y, and was very satisfied with the result. I'd listen to this narrator again.

    I provided my opinion in exchange for a complimentary audiobook from the author, narrator, or publisher.

    "A Great Listen"

    I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher and found it very entertaining. If you like books with lots of battles, this is the book for you. Earth and all its colonized planets are being attached. This has been done many times. This tale has a bit of twist. Through science and old DNA, dinosaur are reborn to help fight this battle along with criminal recruits. It is a very fast paced tale, with a bunch of interesting characters. It made my commute much more pleasant. I will be checking other titles from this author.

    "ALIEN INVASION! DINOSAUR BATTLES! TROOPERS!"
    What did you like best about DinoMechs: Battle Force Jurassic? What did you like least?

    The main character and the battle scenes. The narrator and narration style perfectly match this book!


    Would you be willing to try another book from Isaac Stone? Why or why not?

    Yes, I would definitely read a sequel to this novel or another unrelated novel.


    What about J. Scott Bennett’s performance did you like?

    Strong voice that moved well between male and female characters.
    He has a great soldier/trooper drawl that makes it a really fun listen.


    Do you think DinoMechs: Battle Force Jurassic needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I would have loved to see this book fleshed out more, extra world building and a more devolved plot/conflict. I would love a prequel/sequel book to expand upon the story.


    Any additional comments?

    Fun read, retro style sci-fi. Doesn't take the concept of battle dinosaurs too seriously.

    What made the experience of listening to DinoMechs: Battle Force Jurassic the most enjoyable?

    This was Amazing ! totally unlike anything I have ever read before! It is as amazing as watching dinosaur mechs in battle sounds!!The description of the battles were so ineradicable and detailed down to the slightest twitch of a tail .Truly outstanding. Michael Claymore Is a fantastic character witty ,funny and commanding.The Kaiju Monsters were pretty terrifying.J. Scott Bennett did an amazing job taking us through the story of the earths battle and breathed life in to a seriously kick a** tale of Dino wars.You will be completely astonished with the unraveling of the story.I for one would love to see book 2 out sooner rather than later.

    "A war story with dinosaurs."

    If the title of this book interests you then this is probably the book for you. It is solidly written by Isaac Stone and enhanced by good narration. The characters have their own personalities and are granted their own unique voices by J. Scott Bennett's narration.

    This is a decent story with a cool set up it has armed dinosaurs what's not to like?. It is more action film rather than grim and gritty. The story flows quickly and is well paced. It is a little light on the whole horrors of war and overly detailed combat descriptions some books go into which can be a plus or a minus depending on what you like. It would be interested in seeing what happens next to the setting.

    I was happy with the time I spent listening to this book and it is well worth a listen.
    Now, where do I get my own dinosaurs?

    Any additional comments?

    Earth colonised the stars, never expecting to find other intelligent life. But that life found the colonies. How do you fight superior giant lizard-like Invaders? With dinosaurs, of course!

    This is a fun, fighting against hopeless odds military space story, like so many others but with that extra Jurassic ingredient. The battles are seen through the eyes of Rick Claywell, released from a long prison sentence to sign up with the military for five years, should be live that long. We follow the new troops' brief induction period then the battlefields themselves and Rick's progress "from convict to captain". Yes, a familiar story but great fun and with some nice little additional touches along the way.

    Made extra enjoyable by the excellent narration of J.Scott Bennett, whose very pleasant on the ear voice reads impeccably as well as giving distinctive character to all of the protagonists, this is not a book to get over excited about but does provide a very pleasurable few house of listening. My thanks to the rights holder who gifted me a copy of Dino Mechanical, via Audiobook Boom. Good fun!
