Publisher's Summary

Jurassic World meets Dawn of the Planet of the Apes in this epic new middle grade series full of heart-pounding action and breathtaking chills!

One hundred and fifty years ago, the first dinosaurs were cloned. Soon after, they replaced humans at the top of the food chain. The only way to survive was to move into underground compounds....

Five years ago, Sky Mundy's father vanished from North Compound without a trace. Now she has just stumbled on a clue that not only suggests his disappearance is just the tip of an even larger mystery but also points directly to the surface. To find her dad - and possibly even save the world - Sky and her best friend, Shawn, must break out of their underground home and venture topside to a land reclaimed by nature and ruled by dinosaurs.

Perfect for fans of Brandon Mull, Lisa McMann, and Rick Riordan, this exhilarating debut novel follows two courageous friends who must survive in a lost world that's as dangerous as they've always feared but also unlike anything they could ever have imagined.

Reading the book with my 8 year old, we read a chapter listen to the chapter, read listen and so on (really helps with fluency) I found myself enjoying it so much I went ahead and finished both the book and audio! And still engaged going through it with my kid! Great book, great reading, really well done.

Engaging plot not just for kids!

This book brings you right in from the very beginning. Somehow an under world becomes believable and your mind starts to imagine what if and then another world comes into view! Don't leave the excitement for the kids, adults will thoroughly enjoy this book also. And teachers I understand from the author's blog there are lesson plans to go along with this book!
And once again I love Emma Galvin's work. I highly recommend this book!

Middle Schooler Loved

My 8th grader absolutely loved this book. It was age appropriate and was very entertaining. He got so involved that he upon finishing the last page he immediately wanted the sequel. Made some awesome grades with this fiction choice.

Good family listen

This book is full of action and adventure. It is a great listen for all. I appreciate books without swearing and inappropriate scenes that I can listen to with my children. Fantastic book for Jurassic Park fans.

Good book with a subpar reading

Every sentence is read with questionlike inflection and choppy phrasing. The book itself is engaging so, if a different reading is available, I'd choose the other one.
