Publisher's Summary

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.

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.

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.

Just the dinosaur epic I was hoping for!

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.
