    Description

    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.

    Would not recommend

    Took a chance on it based on the idea of dinosaurs and fantasy knights being mixed together. I thought that sounded pretty exciting. Turns out you can make that concept very boring.
    The writing style is far too dry and dull. The narrator is just terrible. He brings nothing to the reading. It feels impossible concentrate on and follow what's happening with his lifeless performance.
    I was only able to get a few chapters in before I couldn't take it any more. Thankfully I only spent an audible credit on this and not money.

    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.

    Dinosaurs, Warfare, and Political Intrigue

    The story was driven well into a realm of easy imagery and likeable characters.

    Not good

    Thought the idea of mixing dinosaurs with a mideval world, but the writing was not well done. I would not recommend this book.

    complicated and well told tale

    narrator is dry and dull, but the story is big enough to compensate. dinosaurs, big world building, deities, people who feel real.

    Really not my thing

    I love dinosaurs, and I love science fiction, but I really did not care about this book. The characters to me came off as flat, and I did not care if they lived or died. There was a lot of random sexual humor, and it seemed like the book was trying too hard to be "edgy".

    Honestly, maybe it will be your thing. The author clearly has talent, but this one just wasn't my personal preference.

    If you like Game of Throne, you might like this, but I have no interest in GoT, and this book did not catch my interest.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    The next big Story

    This is the first exciting book I've listened to in awhile. This isn't Tolkien by any means, but for creating his own world he does well enough. Plenty of time and a great intro to the series
