  Summary: A student named Kevin Sanderson transfers to Sunnydale High and he's exteremely lonely until a lecture is given to his class by a man named Daniel that works for Sunnydale's Museum of Natural History. Kevin immediately considers Daniel to be his mentor as they both thoroughly enjoy paleontology. Unfortunately Daniel's goal is not at all the same as Kevin's who is just trying to fit in. Daniel has found some manuscripts which will help him resurrect dinosaur eggs, and Kevin seems to be the only person with the appropriate eggs. Meanwhile Oz is getting an offer from a woman name Alysa Bardrick to help run their band. She wants to be their manager but the band members of Dingoes Ate My Baby are still unsure as to her intentions. Buffy needs to stop Daniel and Kevin before they perform the ritual to raise the eggs... and if she doesn't stop them in time... how exactly does a Slayer fight a prehistorical ferocious beast?

  Review: For a book I wasn't really looking forward to read (cuz I'm not that much of a dino fan) this book totally blew me away. It was fun, fast paced, exciting and portrayed the characters extremely. I don't care if you're not a fan of dinosaurs, this book is still enjoyable to read. There was a lot of use of Oz which was (in my opinion) high time that they use him too. He almost never got used properly (except for in The Gatekeeper Trilogy) and this time the author actually gave him his own storyline. The author creates incredible atmosphere and the fight scenes are extremely well written and placed in wonderful arenas making everything seem so much more creepier. I loved this book and I'd encourage everyone to read it!
