It is a secret the Chinese government has been keeping for forty years.

They have found a species of animal no one believed even existed. It will amaze the world.

Now the Chinese are ready to unveil their astonishing discovery within the greatest zoo ever constructed.

A small group of VIPs and journalists has been brought to the zoo deep within China to see its fabulous creatures for the first time. Among them is Dr Cassandra Jane 'CJ' Cameron, a writer for National Geographic and an expert on reptiles.

The visitors are assured by their Chinese hosts that they will be struck with wonder at these beasts, that they are perfectly safe, and that nothing can go wrong ...

Get Ready for Action on a Gigantic Scale.

Firsly, let me address the elephant in the room - this is a blatant ripoff of Jurassic Park. It's Jurassic Park but with dragons instead of dinosaurs. Other than that, it's pretty standard Matthew Reilly fare. It's all action and excitement, yes, but has none of the maturity of say Dan Brown or Scott Mariani. To say he writes like a schoolboy would be a little unfair, but it's definitely in that direction - perhaps re-categorisation as "Young Adult" would be appropriate. At least Seven Ancient Wonders had the Dan Brown/Indiana Jones feel to make up for it. His wildly enthusiastic descriptions of action scenes seem to have been written with film rights firmly in mind. I had called myself a fan, and have read quite a few of his books despite the immaturity of the writing, but I feel this book (while probably no worse than others) pushed me over the edge - it just may be my last Reilly book.

Almost makes fantasy a fact.

Very interesting book from start to finish. Researched and makes fantasy very believable. That's the calibre of Matthew Reilly.

Loved all of it, couldn't put it down and didn't want it to end. If you want a great read any of Matthew Reilly's books would be the pick. I can never decided if its a pro or a con, Reilly's books are all detailed/graphic. Best read.
