Publisher's Summary

A world made by the Eight Creators on which to play out their games of passion and power, Paradise is a sprawling, diverse, often brutal place. Men and women live on Paradise, as do dogs, cats, ferrets, goats, and horses. But dinosaurs predominate: wildlife, monsters, beasts of burden - and of war. Colossal plant eaters like Brachiosaurus; terrifying meat eaters like Allosaurus; and the most feared of all, Tyrannosaurus rex. Giant lizards swim warm seas. Birds (some with teeth) share the sky with flying reptiles that range in size from bat-sized insectivores to majestic and deadly dragons.

Thus we are plunged into Victor Milán's splendidly weird world of The Dinosaur Lords, a place that for all purposes mirrors 14th-century Europe with its dynastic rivalries, religious wars, and byzantine politics...except the weapons of choice are dinosaurs. Where vast armies of dinosaur-mounted knights engage in battle. During the course of one of these epic battles, the enigmatic mercenary Dinosaur Lord Karyl Bogomirsky is defeated through betrayal and left for dead. He wakes, naked, wounded, partially amnesiac - and hunted. And embarks upon a journey that will shake his world.

    "Bad performance"

    The concept of this book intrigued me, but I could not finish listening to it because it sounded like a speak and spell was reading it to me. This is the only audiobook I have not been able to finish.

    Story
    "Exhibitionist disappointment."

    I went out on a limb because, well... Medieval battles on dinosaurback. Potentially some absurd levels of awesome there, right?

    Wrong. The reader is presented with a depraved, hedonist society with far more political drama than dinosaur action; usually squabbles over bizarre, polytheistic belief systems that are never well-explained, and supernatural forces that are often mentioned in fear but hardly ever showcased (let alone explained), and the few Dino battles you see don't make up for it.

    Overly graphic depictions of rape and protagonists with loose sexual inhibitions (one of the heroes is bisexual and polyamorous) clearly for the purpose of being seen as "edgy" and "progressive" mark it as being written by an author self-indulging their vision of a utopian society, plagued by puritan devils (who he went out of his way, literally, to depict as disgustingly unhygienic).

    For a book with the basic outline of "Medieval Dino World," it took itself far, far too seriously.

    "Like the plot"

    Plot is really fun. Story is good. The narrator has a very mechanical/robotic voice. Just took something out of it for me.

    Story
    "A lot like game of thrones"

    This story is written in the same style as the game of thrones books. The dinosaurs didn't play as big of a part as I thought, they were treated like horses in any other story. I wasn't a fan but if you liked the game of thrones books you will like this book.

    Story
    "Knights and Dinos oh my!"

    The story is a little confusing at the start I felt but once you become accustomed to the world the story is set it in it comes together quite interestingly. The Melodia chapters when she is just with other women are horrible when listening because of the jumping in and out of feminine voices and saying of their names, but the rest is really well done. I immediately started the next book when I finished.

    Story
    "Dinos and Knights, and .... Ew"
    Would you listen to The Dinosaur Lords again? Why?

    Yes. The first book in this series is really good. Though the author does make more puritan esq people, traditional conservative value systems believing people, out to be fanatic crazy's.... which i found bothersome.

    In the end this first book was worth it to me because of the action and the interesting libertarian mind set towards religion that it seems this entire world has.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Dino's and knights....


    Which character – as performed by Noah Michael Levine – was your favorite?

    They where all decent. The performance was good and solid.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    "Just like game of thrones, but with dino's"... except not.


    Any additional comments?

    This first book is really clean and good compared to the others.

    the second book is the best in my opinion, as it has the most actual action in it, and was decently clean for the most part.

    The third book was trash. Honestly, just stop at the second book if your interested in this series at all.

    Story
    "TOO MUCH TELLING!"

    I could never connect with the characters with the writing style of the author. It was a good idea for a book, but it is hard to invest in the characters and the story when the narrator is mostly "telling" you the story. To me, the characters were all too flat.

    "Couldn't stop listening"

    The most enjoyable part of The Dinosaur Lords is simply the world the story is contained in. The concept of Paradise and it's inhabitants is both original and familiar.

    Enjoyable read, can't wait to start Book 2.

    "Immersive story with a perfect performance"

    Of all the books I've heard narrated none come close to being as well done as Noah Michael Levine has done with this book. The story takes place in a very rich and engrossing world, which can at times be confusing, especially when speaking about geographical locations, however, never enough to diminish the splendor of the story.

    Story
    "Just the dinosaur epic I was hoping for!"

    The story of a world not unlike ours in many way, but with a few subtle and one not so subtle differences. Dinosaurs roam, and men ride them to war.
    Performed expertly, this amazing tale of valor, loss and redemption will hold your attention from page one to epilogue.
