Publisher's Summary

My standard issued lab badge reads "Simon", but it really should say "unexciting nerd with no social life". Don't get me wrong - I love what I do with a passion, but it doesn't leave a lot of time for much else. Especially romance.

While chipping away at my work, I'm suddenly the person between hired cartel muscle and the fossil that will define my career. Which isn't the most insane part of the story.

My savior is a chaotic, bat-wielding punk with a bubble-gum pink mohawk and a killer smile.

In a mad dash to escape the thieves, my knight in studded armor sweeps me across the country while hitting every tourist trap along the way. While smuggling a fossil, might I add.

Oh, and did I mention this pink punk can shift into a dinosaur?

Contains mature themes.

Fun Dinosaur Adventure

I wasn’t sure what to expect with this book, but it was very fun and a great listen. Kirt Graves was wonderful as usual and was a perfect fit. It was great to find an original story with good writing and dialog. It seems like so many m/m books are the same story line (fake bfs/straight best friend, etc.), but this was different in the best way. Never a boring moment. I just wish it was longer! Looking forward to more in this series.

Fresh & fun, nerdy shifter romance

If you like shifter romances and want a fresh take, this is a great start to what I hope will be a comprehensive series. Simon, the unsuspecting paleontologist, gets thrown into a world of adventure and fantasy when saved by a sassy punk rock dino shifter. Yep, a DINO shifter. There is a comic book feel to this story that's really fun. The narrator did a good job of keeping voices separate without over the top inflection. I hope more comes soon and that we get more of Simon, Dalton, and the rest of the RELIC team.

Really Fun, Want More

Loved the premise, loved the two MC's and how they played off one another...and on. Sweet story and I learned a lot. I looked up every dinosaur mentioned. I am literally looking at dinosaur books on Amazon to buy so I can identify each species discussed. Kirt Graves was awesome, please, please stick with him for future books. You have a fan, I can't wait for more and what comes next.

Great Fun, New Twist

Never saw this coming. Closest thing to an original concept I've seen in a while. Familiar trope, of course, but a new kind of characters.

Great book

This book was a wonderful surprise as I’d not heard of the author before. It kind of reminded me of a mixture of books by Alice Winters and L.J. Hayward. Great mixture of relationship development, action and humour. It was a shifter book, but not in any typical way so that was refreshing too. I’ll definitely be getting the rest of the series once it’s released. If you’re looking for more inspiration of other decent m/m books to listen to, other than those I mentioned already; try Lily Morton, Tal Bauer or Keira Andrews.

You had me at dinosaur shape-shifters!

Woohoo, the shifter series I never knew I needed! Working for RELIC (Reclaiming Extinct Lineage from Illegal Collectors), Dalton, sporting numerous tattoos, a pink mohawk, and tons of attitude, is a dinosaur shifter. It’s a marriage made in odd-couple heaven when he crosses paths with straight-laced palaeontologist, Simon. Maz Maddox has created a unique shifter world, two fun MCs plus other interesting RELIC characters, and a well-paced action / romance with some great banter. In the audiobook, Kirt Graves channels Dalton’s irreverence and Simon’s awkwardness perfectly. Straight to the Favourite List!

A Shifter Romance with a Dino Twist

Was not sure what to expect with this one, but was so impressed! Story flowed well, laugh out loud moments, great dialogue between characters. Kirt Graves did a great job. Highly recommend if you like MM, shifter, fun banter, action and a HEA. Can't wait to listen to more!!
