I actually enjoyed this one far less than the first Have no fear I intend to read the third book and there are parts of this book that are greatAs many other reviewers have pointed this book does pass the Bechel test When the women talk to each other they do not talk about menAnd yet there is something off about the women in the book We are given several characters to follow of those the only woman is Melodia who was wonderful in the first book but seems to have been dosed with stupid pills in this one And yes considering the view spoiler rape and imprisonment hide spoiler

BiblioSanctum my wonderful time with Victor Milán’s The Dinosaur Lords last year I was understandably uite anxious to take on the seuel The Dinosaur Knights However there were some aspects with this follow up that made me think the honeymoon period might be coming to an end While I still love the epic fantasy meets dinosaurs premise behind this series admittedly the magic has faded somewhat due to this book’s uneven pacing and my growing dissatisfaction with a couple key charactersThe Dinosaur Knights continues the narrative from the first novel following or less the same handful of characters In the Empire of Neuvaropa a fictional land reminiscent of 14th century Europe everything is in turmoil as rumors of a Grey Angel Crusade lead desperate men to form the most unlikely of alliances We pick up Rob Korrigan’s story in the pacifist town of Providence where the dinosaur master and his friend the famed noble captain Karyl Bogomirskiy are on trial for their perceived crimes against the adherents of the Garden of Truth and Beauty At the same time Princess Melodía and her maidservant Pilar are on the run after escaping imprisonment in the palace from the traitor Duke Falk von Hornberg Eventually their search for a safe haven leads them to Providence where the fates of our major characters finally convergeMeanwhile Melodía’s lover and Karyl’s rival the Count Jaume dels Flors has joined forces with Emperor Felipe hatching up an insane plan in the hopes of stopping the Creators’ Grey Angels from returning to Paradise As war erupts across Neuvaropa even those who just want to withdraw into peace and isolation are swept up in the rising wave of fear and madness Worst of all despite the extreme efforts by the Empire there’s no telling whether the weapons of the Gods can even be stoppedFirst the good news All this will ultimately culminate into one hell of a climax and ending The bad news I felt like I had to plod through than 200 pages just to reach the point where things start getting interesting I experienced little to no emotional engagement or suspense for the first half of the book because it was impossible to shake the pesky feeling that the author was simply biding his time until he could maneuver all his characters into place after which he can finally usher in the real actionI was also disappointed with the characters especially Princess Melodía the only female POV in a cast dominated by men She was my favorite from The Dinosaur Lords and my one regret was not seeing her play a significant role compared to Rob or Jaume In a way I got my wish granted since Melodía received a lot page time in The Dinosaur Knights though I remain unconvinced this was actually an improvement I didn’t like the way her character was repeatedly set up to be duped or to make mind bogglingly bad decisions undermining the hard won admiration she earned from the previous book Then there was Rob who freuently displays respect and compassion towards his dinosaurs than his fellow human beings which is especially apparent when it comes to his sexual objectification of women I don’t usually let this kind of stuff get to me but there were so many unnecessary allusions in this vein that even I couldn’t help but notice With Melodía being almost useless for the first half of this novel and Rob going from passably charming to downright insufferable it was harder to engage with the characters this time aroundHappily the dinosaurs are still amazing For one thing I just love the smattering of chapters we get from Shiraa the Allosaurus’ point of view These brief glimpses into the dinosaur’s head can be a bit incongruous but I can’t help but appreciate them for being one of the series’ cooler idiosyncrasies Further Milán continues to excel at writing fantastic dino battle scenes They’re the real highlights of this novel with the largescale combat seuences in the final section going a long way in making up for a humdrum first halfThis seuel also delves deeper into the lore of the Creators and their Grey Angels With dinosaurs and angels this series is really starting to build into something a lot complex than I had anticipated when I first picked up The Dinosaur Lords And while world building continues to be a work in progress and we still don’t have all the answers I admit I’m curious to see how all the puzzle pieces will fall into placeIt should come as no surprise then that I still have plans on continuing this series It’s true that I felt the second book slump with this one but several promising developments in the last half of the book also give me hope that the third installment will pick things up again Plus there’s no dismissing those final climactic chapters and with the book ending with the Empire of Neuvaropa in even of a mess than when we started I’m definitely keen on finding out where our characters will go from here

The Dinosaur KnightsHas chosen to rally those who seek a way from the path of war and madness The fact that the Empire has announced a religious crusade against this peaceful kingdom the people who just wish to live in peace anathema and they all are to be converted or destroyed doesn't help him one bitThings really turn to mud when the dreaded Grey Angels fabled ancient weapons of the G. Review for The Dinosaur Lords hereThis book was a marked improvement over the first on the series I think the reason for this is two fold First we just know about the world this takes place in now so less of the text has to be dedicated to explaining the world and cultures Not that it doesn't take time to further expand on it just that these passages are a bit less forced All the Towers of Nuevaropa Mayor y Menor were eual before Imperial law But the Spañoles were as the saying went eual than the others and appearances must be preserved Secondly I noticed Milan wisely decided to cut back on the forced dinosaur metaphorssimiles and stick to traditional prose Her thoughts were simple as a blade and direct as an arrow’s flight So with both of those issues suared away the story flow was much smoother and the reading experience was improvedThe story itself was also a nice improvement The first book in retrospect was mostly about setting the stage and furnishing a context for everything that follows In this one we get a much deeper dive on Imperial politics and their version of the Pope and much to my liking the greater conspiracy involving the supernatural creatures that appear to hold the fate of humanity in their hands Because this isn't earth we are dealing with but some other strange worldconstruct Hogar Home Old Home—When they were done making Paradise and found it good the Creators brought humans their Five Friends and certain useful crops and herbs here from the world we call Home Ancient accounts teach us it is a strange place It is cold and we would feel heavier there and find the air much thinner The year is 16 times as long as ours We must admire the fortitude of our ancestors in dwelling on such an inhospitable world and always praise the Creators for bringing us to our true Paradise But all that world building and grand conspiracies aside books are made or broken on their characters Just like last book Rob and Karyl were the heart and soul of this book Mostly because Karyl was a badass and Rob was a cycnical son of a bitch who got stuff done “Why do you put up that treacherous fat fuck Melchor” he asked Karyl The other surviving town lord Yannic still sulked in his manor claiming incapacity from the wounds he’d had at Blueflowers Rob reckoned he was malingering and good riddance “Better to have him where we can keep an eye on him” “Which presupposes a man can stand the sight of him” Karyl shrugged “I told him that if he showed any sign of getting out of line I’d kill him” Rob laughed Not because he thought Karyl was joking But precisely because he wasn’t I loved it every time they were on page together and I think their relationship is the best one in the bookThe others were sadly not as strong Melodia was the most problematic because it just seemed like the only way she could develop as a character was by climbing over a pile of corpses I liked where she ended up but it was a bit painful to see her getting there plus you know the corpses Jaume was alright and gave us a good view into the Imperial affairs plus he had to make some pretty heavy moral decisions Even Falk was sort of interesting as a character and I liked that we got time with the Emperor Overall the characters were better than the first book and enjoyable to read aboutI also really liked the action in this book Milan in my opinion did a nice job setting up and explaining the dino battles and made them rather exciting The showdown at the end of this book was uite excellent but Milan didn't sacrifice the pacing of the story to talk about battlesI also liked that this book retained the chapter header art and the little segments of world building that prefaced all the chapters It gave a nice non forced bit of world building for the reader like this one which also sets the tone for why the changes in the Church were such a big deal Los Libros de la Ley THE BOOKS OF THE LAW—The Creators’ Own Law Popularly attributed to Torrey the Youngest Son who stands for Order They are largely filled with explanation and annotation since the actual laws are few and simple for example establishing worship of the Creators as the worldwide faith although allowing it to take many forms; enjoining people to actively enjoy life; abjuring eternal punishment; mandating proper hygiene; and forbidding slavery and torture So while this isn't high literature I did find it to be an enjoyable read and the hook at the end made me eager to continue the story
