“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that lets us feature upcoming releases that we can’t wait to get our hands on!
The Dinosaur Knights by Victor Milán: July 5, 2016 (Tor Books)
“It’s like a cross between Jurassic Park and Game of Thrones.” –George R. R. Martin
If that doesn’t have you salivating, I think we have to seriously re-evaluate our friendship. Okay, just kidding. But still, knights and dinosaurs! How cool is that? Sure it’s a bit silly and gimmicky, but I really enjoyed the first book The Dinosaur Lords this year and had a lot more fun with it than I expected. Sign me up for the sequel!
“Paradise is a sprawling, diverse, often cruel world. There are humans on Paradise but dinosaurs predominate: wildlife, monsters, beasts of burden, and of war. Armored knights ride dinosaurs to battle legions of war-trained Triceratops and their upstart peasant crews.
Karyl Bogomirsky is one such knight who has chosen to rally those who seek a way from the path of war and madness. The fact that the Empire has announced a religious crusade against this peaceful kingdom, the people who just wish to live in peace anathema, and they all are to be converted or destroyed doesn’t help him one bit.
Things really turn to mud when the dreaded Grey Angels, fabled ancient weapons of the Gods who created Paradise in the first place come on the scene after almost a millennia. Everyone thought that they were fables used to scare children. They are very much real.
And they have come to rid the world of sin…including all the humans who manifest those vices.
THE DINOSAUR KNIGHTS is the second in Victor Milan’s lush, exotic tale about knights. Knights riding dinosaurs.”
hmm why not, first time I see this one
I am curious
I still have to read the first book! I was so stoked when I first read about it, can’t believe I actually forgot to buy it. Btw, that cover looks great.
I ADORE the cover. The artwork for these books are phenomenal, and like even the little illustrations in the first book. I hope the second book will have those too.
Ooh that sounds intriguing! Hope you enjoy it once you get it!
Here’s my WoW
Have a GREAT day!

That blurb had me salivating more than a donut cake! But I’m not sure there is any way I’m going to read this. Sadly, I was disappointment with Dinosaur Lords, so, unless I hear Hugo talk for this, no more dinos for me
Yeah I saw that Dinosaur Lords didn’t work for you and I’m sorry to hear that!
I know how much you loved the first book, so this choice doesn’t surprise me:-) One of these days I’ll find myself a copy and see what all the fuss is about!
KNIGHTS AND DINOSAURS. That’s basically all I need to know! I NEED this in my life! Scratch that, I need the first book in my life. Thanks for bringing this one to my attention Mogsy^^ as usual, you have an awesome pick here 🙂
As soon as I finish posting this, I’m going to look for book 1, because I am beyond *intrigued* by this. It’s the dinosaurs, you see… 😀
I still have to read the first one!
I do love the artwork for these – and all the plates at the front of each chapter – so good. In fairness I read an excerpt only and whilst I really enjoyed it I still haven’t caught up – I need to do so.
