Publisher's Summary

In the blockbuster and best-selling tradition of Jurassic Park comes the breakneck new adventure from New York Times and number-one internationally best-selling author Matthew Reilly, whose imaginative, cinematic thrillers "make you feel like a kid again; [they're] a blast" (Booklist). It is a secret the Chinese government has been keeping for 40 years. They have proven the existence of dragons - a landmark discovery no one could ever believe is real and a scientific revelation that will amaze the world. Now the Chinese are ready to unveil their astonishing findings within the greatest zoo ever constructed. A small group of VIPs and journalists has been brought to the zoo deep within China to see these fabulous creatures for the first time. Among them is Dr. Cassandra Jane "CJ" Cameron, a writer for National Geographic, and an expert on reptiles. The visitors are assured by their Chinese hosts that they will be struck with wonder at these beasts, that the dragons are perfectly safe, and that nothing can go wrong. Of course it can't....

Dumb dumb dumb

Jurassic Park, mixed with Reign of Fire, mixed with every cheesy sci-fi network movie you've ever caught a glimpse of. So many irritating little writing tics. Like characters repeatedly starting a word, with action interrupting the end of the word. Page after page of it. So many cheap cliff-hangers, nick of time rescues, ninth hour saves. Saturday morning cartoon worthy. Only for the diehard, desperate for adventure set. Otherwise avoid.

More Suited for Young Teen Than Adult

Reworking of a Jurassic Park style story without the message, depth, interesting characters, and a almost believable story. Mr. Reilly also seems to like to write for the simple minded with simplistic dialogue, shallow character development, and unimaginative storyline copied from a more qualified writer. His only "fun" stories involve the character "Scarecrow" which while plagued with some of the same is more believable and take you on a wild ride.
