Z.Raptor by Steve Cole

In Z. Raptor by Steve Cole, Adam Adlar has just gotten used to normal life. He presumes that he is done with Geneflow, their leader Samantha Josephs, and their evil ways. Josephs has stolen secrets from his dad's virtual reality simulator. They have then taken this and turned it in to something very evil. Adam is walking to his dad's office when he notices that someone is following him. This turns into  a high-action chase scene. When he finally does get caught these people reveal themselves to be FBI agents. They show him and his dad, whom they also caught, a video from a girl who is calling for help. Although, that is not the only thing unusual about the video. It also has a raptor in it. It is a living breathing prehistoric raptor. It looks as if Adam is going to get caught up in Geneflow's schemes again.

The author paints a vivid picture of the setting and characters in your head. He makes both seem real, and he lets you "feel" if the characters and settings are good or evil. He gives them a sort of vibe that you would like in a story. The author puts his adventureous and suspenceful voice into the writing. I found the book very interesting and very effective. It is informative and is a real science fiction novel. It had some parts that could be improved,and it felt like he was trying to force some parts of the book into action scenes. Despite this I would recommend it to others because it is a very interesting and well written book. It also sets the scene for the trilogy, and I would definately read it if I could.

I gave it this rating because of the violence and gore factor. It has gruesome descriptions of fights with blood and death.
