Entertaining, fun and exciting read. This story explores what would happen if a semi-aquatic dinosaur survived and for various geological reasons made an appearance in a National Park during tourist season. The main character could have used some work - he was too "know it all" and his wife annoyed me too, but otherwise an entertaining tale. I'm looking forward to the sequel. ( )

Dinosaur Lake
By: Kathryn Meyer Griffith
Narrated by: Johnnie C. Hayes
This is a book I could easily picture in my mind as it was reading to me. Well written, good characters, and a big meat eater out of nowhere! But this is what fantasy is for, to entertain and suspend beliefs for a bit. Forgot science and have fun! If it's got a dinosaur in it and it is eating someone, I want to read it!
The narrator has a slightly gruff voice but somehow that worked with this story. It might not with all stories but it worked great with this one! ( )

Former police officer Henry Shore has been Chief Park Ranger at Crater Lake National Park for the past eight years. He loves his quiet life with his family in Oregon - the solitude, the peace, the tranquility, the predictability. He likes his park the way it has always been - fun, safe and family-friendly. But Henry is about to be tested in so many ways.

First the earthquakes begin...people start to go missing...then reports surface of some sort of mysterious water creature that's taken up residence in the caves below Crater Lake. Not only is it growing in size, the beast is also incredibly aggressive and cunning...and ravenous. And it's quickly acquiring a taste for human beings. Very much so. It has also recently developed the ability to walk on land.

So Henry, with the help of his wife, Ann - a reporter with the local newspaper; a young paleontologist named Justin Maltin; and a band of brave men must not only protect Henry's beloved Crater Lake National Park from this threat, but also the people who live there. Somehow, Henry and his men must find out where the monster lives and destroy it...before it can kill again.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. The characters were extremely likable and sympathetic, and the plot was fast-paced and intriguing. One aspect of the story that I especially appreciated was that it didn't become completely bogged down with scientific jargon - it was very readable and action-packed. I give Dinosaur Lake a definite A! and I'm looking forward to reading the recently released sequel to Dinosaur Lake - Dinosaur Lake II: Dinosaurs Arising.

Dinosaur Lake by Kathryn Meyer Griffith was also a Finalist for the 2014 EPIC Ebook Awards in the Suspense/Thriller Category. ( )

Henry is the Chief Park Ranger at Crater Lake, which sits atop a volcano. There has been no volcanic activity in anyone’s memory and earthquakes are rare and mild. Near the start of the book, some dinosaur bones are found when a small earthquake reveals them. When Henry learns that people have seen a “monster” in the lake, including one of his best friends/one of the other rangers, he doesn’t really believe them until he sees it himself. Things go from bad to worse as people start to disappear...

This was really good. Lots of suspense and I was often on-the-edge-of-my-seat with a pounding heart. There was a range of characters and motivations; some of the characters I liked, some not so much! At first, the book had me thinking of similarities to Jurassic Park, then Jaws (Henry gets to a point where he wants to close the lake, but no one believes that there is a problem), and some Loch Ness Monster (monster in a lake) and Bigfoot (no one believes it) thrown in there. This is part of a series, and I do hope to continue. ( )

An enjoyable read with well-developed and (some) likeable characters. However, I really do think this book should have been 100 pages shorter due to its repetitive nature. There's only so many times the reader needs to hear 'I think we should kill the dinosaur due to the danger it poses to humanity' before it becomes a bit of a drag. Every thought, decision and action was churned over so many times! Not sure if I'll read the other two books in the series due to this. ( )
