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.

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.

The story of a world not unlike ours in many way, but with a few subtle and one not so subtle differences. Dinosaurs roam, and men ride them to war.
Performed expertly, this amazing tale of valor, loss and redemption will hold your attention from page one to epilogue.
