Set 120 million years ago on the prehistoric plains of Utah, this piece of science and fiction follows the life of a female raptor.
This book had me quickly rooting for the raptor as she struggles to survive in a world we’ve never experienced, yet is on our own planet. The story was fantastic and interesting, filled with facts and a good dose of fiction. It’s quite the incredible read and there’s not really anything else like it.
A pair of fierce but beautiful eyes look out from the undergrowth of conifers. She is an intelligent killer…
So begins one of the most extraordinary novels you will ever read. The time is 120 million years ago, the place is the plains of prehistoric Utah, and the eyes belong to an unforgettable heroine. Her name is Raptor Red, and she is a female Raptor dinosaur.
