Demian's Thoughts:

Like the last book, this is nothing new. Every event and theme in it has been done elsewhere, probably several times over. In many ways, it also resembles the author's previous story, Jungle Adventure. The writing and choices are decent but unexceptional, and there's both a fatal ending and an "it was only a dream" ending. At least a few of the prehistoric creatures encountered during the course of the story are a bit more exotic than the most familiar ones. I wasn't too impressed, but it could have been worse, and I enjoyed the subject matter despite having seen it many times before.
