Reminiscent of Jurassic Park

Dr. C.J. Cameron, a respected expert in reptiles specifically crocodiles, and her brother, Hamish, are invited to a VIP tour of China's latest extravagant theme park. The Great Zoo of China houses dragons that have been collected from all over the world to represent the myths of many countries. C.J. has been included because her mentor, Dr. Bill Lynch, was killed working at the zoo. His death is a precursor to the problems that arise when the dragons are turned loose.

The book is filled with fast paced action and bloodshed. If you like a book that keeps you on the edge of your seat, you'll like this one. The plot is clever, but very reminiscent of Jurassic Park with different animals. The major thrust of the plot is a chase scene in which C.J. plays a major role making instant decisions and coming up with solutions.

The book has a great many characters. Most of them are not well developed, but it doesn't matter because Reilly kills them off at a rapid rate. The book is gory. If you have a problem with bloodshed you may not enjoy it.

I reviewed this book for Net Galley.
