One of my top ten favorite movies is Reign of Fire with Christian Bale. I loved the mix of apocalyptic endtimes with the lasting power and fright of dragons. A friend of mine just published a book in a similar vein, so I thought I’d tell you guys about it and help make him famous.
I met Joe Whelan through our mutual interest in highpointing and attempting to reach the highest summit of each state.
I know that Joe has been working on the book for a while to get it polished and edited so that it’d be ready for all of you geeks and nerds like me that beg for good stories to read in between seasons of Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead.
His book is called Day of the Dragon.
Here’s the description of it from Amazon-
What if a very long time ago there existed on this Earth a species as intelligent as Homo sapiens and maybe more intelligent?
What if this ancient creature ruled the entire planet and half the solar system? What if this creature’s civilization rose and fell and disappeared into the mists of Time?
What if evidence of this lost world remained buried for tens of millions of years? What if – one day – a modern human paleontologist looking for fossilized bones finds an artifact instead?
What if this artifact turns up at the Cretaceous-Tertiary boundary, the dividing line between the Age of Mammals and the Age of Reptiles?
What if this thing reemerges into the sunlight after being buried for sixty-five million years? It was madness even to contemplate that this man-made thing – no, this dinosaur-made thing – could exist. It was mad, crazy, insane, impossible. But there it was.
Day of the Dragon tells this incredible tale….
If you enjoy this book, be advised that Joe told me he’s already working on several more in the series. Check this one out and let me know what you think.
