The Black Blood is unleashed upon the earth again, and Amber must save her father—and the world—with the aid of the only other Black Blood survivor, Kelvin Sauridon, a dinosaur from the past. In this high-stakes adventure, can they put aside their differences long enough to save the planet they both called home?
More dinosaurs? Yes, please. I will never turn away the potential for an awesome book that involves these ancient creatures. Especially when you mix in some sci-fi flavor to it and create a title like Rexodus. With the whole TPB to check out, how could I not be excited?
This new title begins millions of years ago when dinosaurs still ruled, and were more humanoid than we’re used to. Threatened by a terrible evil known as The Black Blood, the Disaurians send a craft into space in hopes of survival. Fast forward to now, with a scientist and his daughter Amber being brought to an archaeological dig of sorts. Shortly after Amber accidentally awakens one of the “dinosaur” survivors, Kelvin, the pair are thrown into a fast paced adventure to again fight against The Black Blood.
For a creature over 60 million years old, Kelvin looks as sharp as can be. That goes for the rest of the characters, and the entirety of the book itself. The artwork in this unique tale is incredibly strong, with detailed illustrations and colors that bring every panel to life. I very much appreciated the various designs for the dinosaurs, taking aspects of species we know and making them more humanoid.
I can’t imagine there are many people out there that can say they don’t love dinosaurs. It’s one of those things that we loved as a child and often continue to do so. I’m definitely in that crowd, and this book was a great addition to something I adore. It’s a fun story with superb art, and should really be on your radar.
