Z. Raptor

Thirteen-year-old Adam Adlar used to have a normal life. Then his father created the most advanced video-game technology ever—one that uses a person's thoughts to control game characters, so that the characters are actually part of you. And scientists stole this technology to create hyper-evolved dinosaurs with a human's ability to learn… and a beast's ability to kill. Now packs of raptors populate a deserted island where the only law is survival. For the death-row inmates who were forced to live there as part of an experiment, survival was not an option. Now it's up to Adam and his dad to make sure the brutality stops.

about the AUTHOR Photo of author Steve Cole

Steve Cole grew up in rural Bedfordshire in the UK. He loved reading and writing stories as a child. While he still enjoys writing almost anything — from novels to articles to songs to puzzles — he has found his real love is for creating children's books. He is the author of the popular Wereling trilogy and Thieves Like Us, among many other fiction and nonfiction titles. His smash hit Z. Rex was his first book for Philomel.
