I loved book 1 of this and was excited to listen to the prequel to it. This is almost two short stories that collide together at the end. On one side, we see Jack (Sorry, I can't even begin to spell his Indian name so I'll stick with Jack). Jack belongs to the tribe that the Grishla cursed. His tribe sacrifice people to appease the Grishla, but when his mother is sacrificed, it hits Jack hard. He is too young to do much about it but he's never forgotten or forgiven them for doing it. Now he's grown, he finally gets tired of their ways and when his childhood friend gets offered as the sacrifice, he decides to rescue her and run away. They are hunted by the tribe for their desertion.
On the other side we see Karl Redgrave calling the elite of the hunters, assassins, murders etc, to fight a battle. They are to find 5 Faberge Eggs and whoever finds it will be rewarded. There are no rules so it's a fight to the death for some. Those 5 winners will hunt a very elusive creature, called the Grishla.
Initially when I started reading this, I was quite confused as to what was going on, but once I figured out the two separate stories, I enjoyed this a lot. It wasn't as enjoyable as book 1 but it was close! The plot, as I said, was two separate stories that come together in an unforgettable way at the end. I liked Jack's story the most and really felt for him. His tribe was horrible and it was nice that he found his own path.
The last half of the book was extremely fast paced and intense and made up for the confusion at the start. This is a solid addition to the series and I'm hoping we get book 2 soon!
Terry F. Self had a lot of different tones and voices for the different characters and was easy to listen to, I just found him to be a little unenthusiastic with the reading. A little emotion behind his words would have brought this to life fully!
I was given this free audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts.

Author Roma Gray
This is the best Western-Dinosaur book/tape on the market. Certainly a niche category, but a good one!! :)
I completely enjoyed this and will look for this author again.
I received a free copy in exchange for a honest review. I would have been satisfied and happy even if I had paid for it.
Never a dull moment.
