The Dinosaur Princess by Victor Milán (August 15, 2017 by Tor)
While I adored The Dinosaur Lords, I hit a slump with its sequel The Dinosaur Knights, with one of my disappointments being caused by the portrayal of female characters especially Princess Melodía who was my favorite character from the first book. But then I learned the next book’s title – a good sign that things could be turning around for Melodía? Despite my quibbles with the previous novel, I always did plan on continuing the series, and the description for the next volume is getting my blood pumping again. Plus, just take a look at that cover. And gawk.
With The Dinosaur Princess, we return to Paradise, Victor Milan’s fabulous alternate fantasy universe where humans from Earth were transported to a world where dinosaurs never became extinct.
It is a marvelous but dangerous place, a realm where knights ride these beasts in order to fight epic medieval battles, a place where magic is real.
The ancient gods who brought mankind to Paradise have returned to judge their human experiment. The Grey Angels, fabled ancient weapons of the gods, have come to rid the world of sin.
And if humans are deemed unworthy, they will be scourged from the face of Paradise.”
