This riveting alt history introduces dinosaurs into a pivotal moment in human history. Now the 1815 Battle of Waterloo is something other than a crushing defeat for the French emperor Napoleon Bonaparte, when he unleashes a terrible secret weapon - giant carnivorous survivors from pre-history on his unsuspecting adversaries. In this world, smaller "saurs" are an everyday danger in the forests of Europe, and the Americas are a forbidden zone roamed by the largest and most deadly animals ever to walk the earth. But in his quest for power, Napoleon has found a way to turn these dinosaurs into nineteenth-century weapons of mass destruction. Only Willem, the teenage son of a court magician who lives near the battlefield, has the power to ruin the tyrant's plans. And Napoleon will stop at nothing to find him.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Part historical fiction, part dinosaur fantasy mash-up, this book will appeal to history buffs and dinosaur fanatics alike. The battle scenes between Napol on's army and the British are depicted in incredible detail, making readers feel as if they are right in the midst of the fight . . . The first of a promising duology that readers will find thrilling and positively addicting." --School Library Journal


"This alternative history asks, what if Napol on won the battle at Waterloo . . . The novel quickly ramps up to suspense, immersing the reader in the swiftly moving plot. Characters are very well drawn, capturing the reader's sympathy. With an ending wide open for a sequel, complete with a plot-thickening cliff-hanger, one can only hope that Falkner is a swift writer." --Booklist


"Falkner gives Napol on a toothy secret weapon in this decidedly alternate history." --Kirkus Reviews
