Up and Coming Reads | The Dinosaur Knights by Victor Milán

What is this book about? Besides knights riding dinosaurs? 

Who cares? There are Knights and there are Dinosaurs! What else could make it better? 

Please tell me if you do know. This is book 2 in The Dinosaur Lords Series. I made a start on book 1 The Dinosaur Lords several months ago.  It was interesting but not compelling.  I soon put it down unread and haven't picked it up to finish.

It's billed as a cross between Game of Thrones and Jurassic Park however when I put it down they were in the middle of a march from point A to point B but the arrival at point B never seemed to come.  It reminded me of the middle part of The Two Towers were Frodo and Sam seemed to get stuck in a 'groundhog day' time loop were in they passed the same rock about 15 times...

Anyway don't let me dissuade you from reading it as I do intend to pick it up again.  The world building is good and so is the character development so give it a go.

The Dinosaur Knights 

by Victor Milán

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.
