9781862307773: Z-Rex

Adam Adlar is alone in an isolated apartment building wondering why his scientist dad hasn't been able to get home for over a week . . . Even he doesn't want to play computer games alone for ever.

Z Rex is a living, breathing, man-eating dinosaur who has been brought to life by Adam's dad. He can talk, think - and kill. And, he has no idea why he's here. Zed wants answers, and Adam's dad has them . . .

When Adam encounters Z Rex his first thought is to flee. But Z Rex is actually the closest Adam has to a friend in this new and terrifying reality.

Can boy and dinosaur work together to defeat the evil forces ranged against them?

A fast-paced, exciting thriller that will take bestselling Astrosaurs author, Steve Cole, to an older audience. Jurassic Park meets Alex Rider!

Review:

"For years, Cole has been a bit of an unsung hero of children's fiction with his Astrosaurs series about dinosaurs in space, an idea so funny that many 7-9s cannot help but read them. Z-Rex is a bit of a departure, however, in being simply a terrific thriller that younger fans of Anthony Horowitz will love...The alliance between boy and dinosaur is depicted with energy and an engaging sense of the possibilities of an interspecies partnership. It's a romping read, with an original twist and lots of suspense" (Amanda Craig The Times)

"The book is full of action, with cliffhangers galore, a tight, tense plot, and some really great visual scenes. It would make an excellent film. I suspect that when this hits the book shops, there will be a lot of other children around the country who will be cheering too..." ( The Bookbag)

"A terrific thriller that younger fans of Anthony Horowitz will love . . . a romping read, with an original twist and lots of suspense" (Amanda Craig The Times)

"The book is full of action, with cliffhangers galore, a tight, tense plot, and some really great visual scenes. It would make an excellent film" ( thebookbag.co.uk)

"A novel which combines dinosaurs and fantasy is likely to prove popular, but Cole's adventure tale has far deeper and darker undertones for those who read it more closely. . . . The outcome offers a disturbing commentary on the ruthlessness of governments, on industrial espionage and on loyalty, seamlessly contained within a gripping thriller. Adam is an engaging hero, and Cole's descriptions of catastrophic dinosaur-induced events are powerful" ( Book Trust)
