This book is interesting. It leaves you on the line, and it cuts through reality in fantasy, even if parts of it are really unrealistic. It hooks you and pulls you in, but when you realize that Z-Rex can literally fly over the pacific ocean in a couple of days, you realize how far away from life it is. The first time I read it, it was really good. The second time, it was ok. But I really like the Z vs Y showdown at the end and the climax where Adam figures out that Hayden is a wolf in sheep's skin, per se. It is pretty interesting and fast paced though, and you feel kind of sentimental to Zed and the battles he fights.

This book is one of my favorites. It has a lot of action and a bit of violence, but it isn't overdone. The book has a very good hook and starts off with a 13-year-old named Adam playing videogames that his dad developed. Later a secret organization invites Adam's dad to work with them, to develop the game further. After his dad doesn't return home, Adam gets worried and intense violence occurs. there is a man-eating dinosaur on the loose. A real, breathing dinosaur, a mystical animal believed to have become extinct long ago. The monster that his dad created for the videogame, nothing but code and pixels, comes to life. And this hideous creature is after Adam, and nobody knows why. I would recommend this book to people who like action and horror, and it has a great way of pulling readers right in and leaving them hanging at the end of each chapter.

What is the third book?
The Second is "Z. Raptor" but what is the third book?

This book is really good. Very interesting. I would recommend to kids aged 8 and up because it would be scary for really little kids.

This book seemed interesting at first then my interest lessoned but increased at the end of the book. It was not the best book I've read, but to be fair-minded, I do have problems becoming interested in books by an author whose books I have not read before. Doctor-at-Bass! T. A.
