Summary

Timebeam to danger

Six hunters and two official guides are going on the trip of their lifetime.Their destination? Earth as it was 100 million years ago, long before human dominion, when the great hot-blooded dinosaurs ruled supreme.

Each of the time travelers has a different motive. Some are on the strange safari for pay. Others are taking a psychological and sexual holiday from civilization. There are women who wanted to show themselves the equal of men - and men out to test and prove their manhood.

But whatever their drives and desires, their strengths and weaknesses, the ultimate horror awaits them...deathbeast.

Worst book I’ve seen in my entire life as a book worm

I’m 56 and have been a voracious reader my entire life-reading 12th grade level by 3rd grade. So I’ve gone through thousands of printed books and hundreds of audible books during my life so far. I’m not a snob and read things in almost every genre out there, but this stinker is so bad I can’t finish it. I’ve started it three times and just can’t cheat myself out of good reading/listening time, life is too short. It’s like the author was trying to prove that he knew a lot of words and vomited a dictionary all over the pages. The wordiness completely interferes with the plotline. This storyline has been done much better by several other authors. There’s not much the narrator can do with it.

Just sorta bland

Likes: future meets prehistoric past is a good concept
Dislike: little character development, even less of the actual “beast”. Lots of rabbit hole content that should have never made final print.

Disappointing

This book started out well, as an interesting story that involved action and what not. But after about the halfway point it got very wordy and devolved from the actual action into a lot of personal reflection by the characters that really felt like it dragged on way too long. Overall I was disappointed in what had potential to be a really good story.
