This has been on my “To Read” Goodreads shelf almost as long as The Winds of Winter, but the good news is that this one has a light at the end of the tunnel, and that tunnel ends next month, people!! By the end of July, we should all be so lucky as to own a copy of Victor Milan’s The Dinosaur Lords, which sounds to me like a colossal combination of so many of my favorite things.
Check it out on Goodreads.com for the full synopsis, but it pretty much had me at, “dynastic rivalries, religious wars, and byzantine politics… except the weapons of choice are dinosaurs.” It sounds as though it will have the political and martial intrigue of the A Song of Ice and Fire Series, with the unknown, threatening power of Jurassic Park, and do I detect a hint of the omnipotent control of Greek mythology? Dare I hope? I’m still reeling from my immersion in all things Jurassic Park lately, so I think this will be a welcome revisit to the exciting subject matter while still promising an entirely new experience. And this cover art. I mean, please.

Anyway, I’m looking forward to this newcomer and I’d love to hear what you all think. Would you read it? What books have you counting down the days? Did anyone get my 38 Special reference? Let me know!
