“A pair of fierce but beautiful eyes look out from the undergrowth of conifers. She is an intelligent killer…”
NO MAJOR SPOILERS
Written from the viewpoint of a female Raptor this book is a surprisingly good read; the author is a paleontologist and it is his expertise that makes this tale of the trials and tribulations of a dinosaur so vividly interesting.
How he manages to capture the richness of the prehistoric world Raptor Red lives in, the subtleties of Raptor society and the flat, factual horror of the hunts whilst remaining true to the limitations of a prehistoric and unformed dinosaur mind is nothing short of genius; we even get a peek at some Raptor romance.
