Prehistoric creatures have again invaded Crater Lake National Park - and this time there's more than one.
Henry Shore has been Chief Park Ranger at Crater Lake National Park for thirteen years now and thought the days when he'd had to fight a rogue dinosaur that lived in the caves below the lake were long over.
Until one of his park rangers, to save a visitor's life, is in a deadly struggle out in the woods with a new breed of dinosaur worse than the last one. It's as big as a man, but this one is a young one. And growing.
Then more of the creatures begin to show up everywhere, threatening people and destroying the tranquility and safety of his beloved park. A tourist trolley filled with fifteen people is snatched up off the crater's rim by another version of the younger one…but this one has grown into a giant with fangs, claws and a deadly tail. And this one has wings.
Ugly Gargoyles, Henry calls them. For this one isn't alone.
They're flying beyond the park's boundaries into the neighboring towns.
So Henry, with the help of his son-in-law, a paleontologist named Justin, and a band of brave park rangers, and a few good soldiers, must not only protect his park and his people from monsters once more but find their lair and destroy it and them before the creatures kill again.

I recommend that you read/listen to the first book in this series reading them in order. I actually liked the first one better than this one but this book is great too like the 1st book.
I just gobble up anything along these lines I can get my hands on. Some of it is truly execrable. That is not the case with these books....they are quite good. Although falling short on the technical side, they are very character-driven, and the characters are likable and well-developed.

High Action and Inventive Story
Yes! I loved this story. I got through it in two days. Very engaging and exciting.
The main character. You spend a lot of time in his head, knowing his worries and concerns. He was very likeable. All the characters were very likeable.
There are a few scenes that are a close tie, but the last action scene was really gripping. Ok, I'm going to add another one, too. There's a humorous dream sequence that made me laugh out loud (and I was at work).
One of my favorite characters is attacked. I won't say anything more, don't want to give it away, but I was really starting to like the character and the idea this person who I like was going to be killed after everything, upset me. It was a pretty scary scene.
Just I loved this book, loved the first one, and I'm hoping there's an audio version of the third one. I like audio books best. I get more absorbed in the story.
