Dinosaur Lake II by Kathryn Meyer Griffith

Hop in your shuttle car and let’s check out the park. You will not be disappointed.

Dinosaur Lake I is an 2014 Epics Award Finalist in the Suspense/Thriller category. Check out my review:

Creature Dines on Crater Lake Smorgasboard

SYNOPSIS

Henry Shore has been Chief Park Ranger at Crater Lake National Park for thirteen years now and thought the days when he’d had to fight a rogue dinosaur that lived in the caves below the lake were long over.


Until one of his park rangers, to save a visitor’s life, is in a deadly struggle out in the woods with a new breed of dinosaur worse than the last one. It’s as big as a man, but this one is a young one. And growing.


Then more of the creatures begin to show up everywhere, threatening people and destroying the tranquility and safety of his beloved park.
A tourist trolley filled with fifteen people is snatched up off the crater’s rim by another version of the younger one…but this one has grown into a giant with fangs, claws and a deadly tail.


And this one has wings.


Ugly Gargoyles, Henry calls them.


For this one isn’t alone.


They’re flying beyond the park’s boundaries into the neighboring towns.


So Henry, with the help of his son-in-law, a paleontologist named Justin, and a band of brave park rangers, and a few good soldiers, must not only protect his park and his people from monsters once more but find their lair and destroy it and them before the creatures kill again.

MY REVIEW

An awesome and amazing cover to go along with an awesome and amazing book. I love monster books and movies. Not much can beat  Godzilla, Sharktopus, Anaconda, Jaws, Jurassic Park……on a weekend afternoon. I would love to see the Dinosaur Lake movies!!! Any producers out there?

I have been anxiously waiting for Dinosaur Lake II and now that I know there is a Dinosaur Lake III, I am even more excited. I love critter books and a dinosaur roaming around Crater Lake is not to be missed. You can read this without reading Book I, but I still recommend reading it.

Five years earlier, Park Ranger Henry Shore had dealt with a prehistoric, man-eating dinosaur. It couldn’t be happening again, could it? He thought they had killed them all.

In Dinosaur Lake I, the prehistoric beasts were in the water. Now, they are flying.

Henry is such a good guy. He reminds me of Harrison Ford. He has that bumbling, innocent and naive air about him, yet he steps up to the plate, doing what needs to be done.

His wife, Ann, has more problems than a dinosaur to worry about. She owns the newspaper, so that helps keep her going, even when she feels her worst.

Ranger Elle Stanton is back, in a big way. Elle reminded Henry of his friend, George. She has a superstitious nature. She is a retired soldier and was drawn to Crater Lake. She is no wimp, so when Henry senses her fear, he listens. I would definitely like to know her story.

George, an Indian friend had lost his life when he came to Ann’s rescue, but Henry remembered something he said – if the winter is mild, like this year’s had been, there would be a reckoning. Could nature be rebelling because of something we did? Some kind of payback?

Justin, his daughter’s husband, works for the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument.

The characters will win you over. You will feel their pain, fear, terror, shock and awe. Their hearts are big and their bravery even bigger.

These are prehistoric critters shrouded in mysticism. I have met THE dinosaur and I know his death cannot be the end of it. I am excited. What will the next one look like? Will there be only one? Will it crawl, slither, walk, swim or fly? What if they are intelligent, able to think and respond accordingly? I wanted to know and I raced through the pages to find out.

Thank goodness I don’t’ have to wait and see if they got them all. Dinosaur III is out and I can only wonder where Kathryn is taking this. Could it get any worse? I am about to find out and I will tell you all about it. I think the cover with give us a hint.

I received this book in return for an honest and unbiased review.

SYNOPSIS

.

Chief Park Ranger Henry Shore has dealt with and fought real live dinosaurs at his beloved Crater Lake National Park for over six years. With the help of his rangers, a few brave FBI friends and army soldiers he’d been victorious over a prehistoric lake creature and years later some particularly fiendish, and clever, specimens of the flying variety. He and his newspaper publisher wife, Ann, thought their park was finally rid of the monsters and they could reclaim their tranquil life in a place they cherished. Not so. For suddenly across the park new and even more malevolent mutant species of dinosaur begin to appear and create havoc, attacking the park’s visitors and threatening its peace. And this time the primeval scourge isn’t confined to just their park. The creatures have moved into the nearby towns, across the western United States and up into Canada. They are so much more aggressive, smarter and hungrier than any that have come before and the infestation is spreading further and faster than Henry and Ann can even imagine. This time there’s no easy way to defeat the dinosaurs. There’s too many of them and they’re too devious. This time it’s full out war and the victor will someday claim Earth.

  1. Pingback: Tag Team Review and Giveaway ~ Dinosaur Lake II : Dinosaurs Arising | fuonlyknew

  2. Thank you Sherry (and Laura) for reviewing and liking my Dinosaur Lake books and for hosting the tag team giveaway! Beautifully done, too. You two are so kind. Warmly, author Kathryn Meyer Griffith [email protected]

    P.S. Sherry, that Bio of mine is out of date…I now have 22 novels out. I’m working on 23…the third Spookie Town Murder Mystery Ghosts Beneath Us and sequel to Scraps of Paper and All Things Slip Away. Should be done in six months or less.

  3. Water. I feel like I have a chance to get away if the dinosaur is in the water. If it’s flying, it can easily swoop down and catch me as I run away. But in the end, I’d rather not battle a dinosaur at all!!

    Great tag team event, Sherry! Ms. Griffith is a prolific author!

    • I think I would agree with you, seeing I already have a preference for water, but, needless to say, I think I would be dino bait. LOL

  4. I love how different our reviews are yet so similar. One thing we know, we love this series and love Kathryn’s books, all of them! Hurry up and read the third book so we can talk. LOL

  5. Another awesome review! Air or water fight? Depends on the water temps. so, using my tried and true verbal dinosaur combat skills…at least in the air I could hang on to its ear and give it a good earful…or…if its ear is big enough…crawl in and play a riff on its eardrum…Hey this is fantasy, in my fantasy, I can play the drums!

    • Thanks Dii. You can play anything you want and I would love to be a spectator at the battle. I think the dinosaur may meet its match. LOL

  6. I’d rather battle in the water. You can get out of the water and hide on land, but it’s a lot harder to get away from something coming at you from the air.

    If you were in a boat, then NEITHER one would be good!

    • I’m thinking we’d have a problem no matter what, it’s just a matter of who is the lucky one. LOL
