Flamingnet Student Book Reviewer  NBru
Everything is going along fine at Zekes uncles ranch until a Triceratops rages at a stagecoach and the town. Zeke saves the town including Angelia and Maria from certain death. Zeke then finds an unconcious stranger a little ways from Dos Locos who is accompanied by a T-Rex. When the stranger comes to he tells them that DAllesandro who does not like Uncle Jesse, is trying to bring a Triceratops herd into Dos Locos. Zeke and Angelia must travel to a prehistoric world to try to save the town.

I think Rex Riders is excellent. The book draws you into its pages with its vivid descriptions. I especially like how the author mixes dinosaurs with the Old West perfectly. He makes it seem so natural. I recommend this truly prehistoric book to anyone 12 and up. This book will have you dreaming about dinosaurs for weeks. I can't wait for the next book in this series to come out!
