Earthfall - Thomas Hopp
Earthfall is the first novel in the Dinosaur Wars series. This book is free for the kindle. What if the dinosaurs weren't wiped out? What if they were intelligent enough to plan ahead and find a way to save their civilization on the moon? What happens when the dinosaurs decide to come back to earth? Chase Armstrong is a park ranger. His job is the relocation of wolves into the Beartooth Mountains of Montana. Chase is about to become involved in the relocation of some much more exotic species. Species that have been extinct on earth for about 65 million years. Diedre Porter works at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. The Clementine 3 project was classified and buried three years ago, but it's about to resurface, and it could hold the key to the survival of the human race. Diedre has seen what's located at the moon's south pole. Brigadier General Matthew Davis was on leave when the attack began. He raced back to his job as director of the U.S. Space Command Center at NORAD, only to find himself the highest ranking officer in the U.S. military. The whole world is being destroyed, and General Davis is tasked with stopping the destruction. This is a book that I found hard to put down. I'm still not sure how a three clawed species was supposed to have invented space travel, but they were opposing claws anyway. The story has more than its share of suspense and danger, and it's got lots of dinosaurs. Highly recommended.
