He’s Very, Very Hungry – Carnivore by Leigh Clark #LeighClark

I borrowed Carnivore by Leigh Clark from my sister, Laura, at fuonlyknew.

We both love creature features and will drop everything to read one.

Here’s a tease for you:

“This isn’t going to work out the way you think!”

MY ONE SENTENCE REVIEW

As the death count rises, with body parts, and blood and guts flying, this creature feature shows no mercy to anyone for their arrogance and overstepping their bounds with this TRex.

Animated Animals. Pictures, Images and Photos  4 Stars

GOODREADS BLURB

In an Antarctic research outpost, a group of scientists made a discovery. For the first time, modern man would come face-to-face with the ruler of the prehistoric world, the king of the dinosaurs–the Tyrannosaurus Rex. Blinded by scientific zeal, the researchers thought only of the importance of their find, the contribution to science. But soon they are forced to open their eyes to an inescapable fact–once revived, the specimen would need to feed.

Pale Rider: Zombies vs Dinosaurs

by James Livingood

GENRE: Science Fiction & Fantasy

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB

Two worlds collide in this action novelette. Zombies have destroyed civilization. Gasoline fuel is no longer an option, but humanity must find a way to survive. In response to trying to restore our way of life, we engineer franken-monsters. Because of their small brains and massive sizes, these beasts make quick work of farming and clearing land. These large creatures are immune to the zombie virus and perform excellently in loud conditions. They are easy to train. They behave like war horses, prone to help charge in and defend our livelihood.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

EXCERPT

Blues often hunt for weaker and sick humans. Standing your ground and appearing strong will scare off blues. In the beginning, we had become so used to being the top of the food chain, that the thought of being hunted was frightening. Most of the population ran, and that led to massive feasts. Furthermore, our distaste for mandatory physicals meant pockets of blues formed. Gun owners and others brazen enough to stand their ground often kept their ground. Yet, as humans became replaced, the blue’s tactics became more complex. Soon, only standing your ground with a gun was not enough. The practice still works in isolated regions, but the best escape from a blue is to retreat to a safe city.

New Eye City was formed for just that reason. Survivalists knew how to build flash communities, which would then focus on walls. As many of you know, gasoline fuel was no longer an option as the infrastructure collapsed around humanity. Cars, trucks, and farming equipment gathered rust from disuse. Humanity needed a new approach to surviving.

MY FRIDAY 56

“Oh, he went on one of his field trips,” Thorne said. “Very excited about it, before he went. I outfitted him myself – loaned hi my latest field pack. Everything he could ever want in yst forty-seven pounds. He liked it. Left last Monday, four days ago.”

“For where?”

I think we all can figure out where he went! 🙂

(page 56 in hardcover)

MY BOOK BEGINNINGS

Introduction:  The late twentieth century has witnessed a remarkable growth in scientific interest in the subject of extinction.

Are you concerned about cloning and the genetic research scientists are working on? Who knows what they do behind closed doors!

GOODREADS BLURB

The Lost World: Jurassic Park Junior Novelisation captures all the thrills and chills of The Lost World story – with heart-stopping suspense, hair-raising action, and illustrated with colour photographs from the film. Something has survived…In 1993, an ambitious entrepreneur named John Hammond spoke four words which ushered in a new era of motion picture excitement and set worldwide boxoffice records…”Welcome to Jurassic Park”. Now, a few years later, Hammond makes a startling confession to scientist Ian Malcolm: another island of dinosaurs exists…an island where dinosaurs have been living and breeding in the wild…the Lost World.
