Another great one from MSE!

MSE is in my top five favorite authors. Tamer is in my top 3 series. I believe Tamer 4 is the best in the series so far. Luke Daniels is one of the best narrators in the business and delivers this entire series with perfection. So happy to have MSE back on Amazon/Audible.

Freaking LOVE this series!

great story and I get pulled right into them. I've found myself cringe, smile, laugh and even fist bump to different scenes. I can't wait for the next book.

Michael scott earl. Damn!

This book did not disappoint. It was great. It’s really sad what amazon has done to him and really hope to see some more of his works in the future. Great book.

Victor vexes velociraptors viciously

First of all, I have to say it is nice to get a new MSE book on Audible. Earle might not have ever vanished from Audible like he did Amazon, but there really wan't anything NEW popping up. Honestly, I've read several series of Earle's, Destroyer, Lion's Quest, and so on but nothing really blew me away. Hell, it felt like three quarters of Lion's Quest was outside of th game, and Destroyer was so overhyped that I kept hearing, just wait till he snaps on the elves. Just wait. I did, and wasn't impressed. Then I tried Tamer, because I didn't hate the books, they didn't blow me away. Tamer clicked right away, and I have been a fane since.

Tamer is a light LITRPG that actually focuses more of world and camp building than it does leveling, stats, or character sheets. Everyone in Dinoworld has a power, some are amazing, some aren't but Victor has a killer one. He can control dinos, and in Dinoland that gives him quite the edge. He'd built up quite a (literal) harem, and seems to add more ladies to his roster each book.

One thing that I like is that this book picks up exactly where the last left off, and we find Victor negotiating with another camp for goods. Of course, something goes off the rails after their meeting and there is a scramble to prepare for the coming danger. Things they have to deal with, Trell's pregnancy, a flying humanoid, and an assualt on the fort. In between we have a few sex scenes, and get to know a little more about the mysterious Jade. For some reason, Victor seems to be able to understand her when no one else can. So, MSE gives you a likttle information that only serves to make the reptilian replicator even more mysteious.

I have always felt that MSE knows how to pace a story. I might not have loved Destroyer, but it moved right along. Here though, while the pacing is fine it is getting a touch predictable. As soon as he left the others camp I knew there was going to be a fight. Going to the watering hole has become a euphamism for going to bed with whomever he is with. There is a nice snappy drumbeat that says here is where we try to improve the camp, and here is where we have a fight. I'm not complaining. I still enjoy the story, and can't wait to see what happenes, but I sort of know what is coming next depending on the time of day or where they are.

The biggest issue that I have is that we are now four books into the series and it feels like we are treading water. No real advances have been made. Are they on a spaceship or a planet? Don't know. Who are their abductors, and what are they doing with the people they've snatched? Don't Know. How much longer will new people be added to the planet? Don't know. These are things that haven't even been hinted at. There are no solid answers, and while the stories are fun and fast paced they are on a treadmill. We are handed out bits and pieces thaty come from different puzzles and expected to trust that it is going to make an awesome picture in the end. After three books I think we need some answers, not more questions. A lsighter issue is that the more women that get added the more difficult it becomes to connect with the ladies. Sheila was a standout character to me, and I have long hoped that Victor would get a chance to fight her husband at some point. Now she is barely mentioned in contrast to Trell, who somehow manages to dominate each scene that the women are in. Earle focuses on only two or three women a book, and the majority of that deals with them having sex with Victor. It makes it hard to connect with the newbies and maintain ties to the classic guard of the camp. It makes me wonder just how many women becomes too many women in a Harem. Yes, I get that the village needs to grow, and that everyone who is new has some ability that will make thier lives easier in the long run, but it can be overwhelming. To be honest he added a couple of girls in the last book and I can't even tell you the name of the alien who can make things heavier or lighter. The newest batch of babes are just a blur to me.

Still, I think one of the biggest standout moments came during Victor's battle. It was great to see him finally go toe to talon with a bloke that he wouldn't have even considered a possibility of fighting in book one. It was a great bloody fight that showed Victor what he was actually made of, and that he belonged as the leader of the team. It was a cool villain, too. To me, that fight scene made the whole book worthwhile. I still want to see Victor tackle Shelia's husband sans Dinos now more than ever.

Luke Daniels is an narration BEAST. I know I tout Jeff Hays alot, but I have to admit that Daniels is my second go to guy for narration. He has a bag full of voices that are authentic and stunning, he just doesn't do women's voices as well as Jeff, but he does do one hell of a dog. Just listen to the Iron Druid and you will see what I mean. He does a killer Irish Wolfhound impression. Here he completely knocks this story out of the park. He lends emotion to Victor that you could only get from amazing voicework. It doens't come from the page so much as Daniels' heart.

The book is good, but I am starting to need more from the series than just setting up camp, sex scenes, and dinosaurs. Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. Getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like Me will decide based on my review.

If this review helped, please press the YES below. Thank you immensely!!!

AMAZON... PUBLISH NEXT BOOK NOW!

LOVE Dinosaur Tamer books 1-4. Hate cliff hangers so want book 5 soon. I have come to rely on online shopping & belong to Amazon Prime. But if Amazon doesn't get off their corporate butts & start publishing NOW they will quickly lose LOTS of business. Monopolies are illegal we can find an alternaive ...

As always!

as above.
Michael Scott Earle is one of the best and most prolific authors out there.
I cant wait for the next release of his work.
in my humble opinion hes up there with Lee child , Terry pratchett and j r Tolkien as imaginative writers. though totally different genres.
as usual Luke daniels does his brilliant job of bringing these stories to life.

Stunning continuation.

Book 4 continues right where the previous book left off. The story keeps getting better and better which each book, making me want more. My only disappointment is that I've got to wait for the next book to come to Audible.
