Summary

A small change today can change our tomorrow. A small change 100 million years ago can change everything.... 

No one really noticed when things started to change. Some animals vanished. Some new ones appeared. Then some things appeared that were monstrous. No one seemed to notice except Ben Cartwright and the other survivors of hidden plateau in the depths of the Amazon jungle. Only they were aware of the growing threat to the human race.  

While Andy lived out his dreams by venturing north to witness the birth of the American continent and navigate a prehistoric inland sea of the late cretaceous, whatever he was doing was rippling forward to change our world. Every day brought new threats in the form of creatures that should have long been extinct or newly evolved monstrosities that were from mankind’s worst nightmares. 

The comet, Primordia, was returning, and time was up. They had to go back and find Andy and stop him before mankind vanished from the face of the Earth. 

In the thrilling third instalment of the blockbusting Primordia series, Greig Beck explores a frightening world where evolution has gone wild while also taking us further into the prehistoric Cretaceous jungle and oceans and to a time mankind was never meant to exist in.

Greig Beck has evolved into an incredible writer.

Primordia III - The Lost World ReEvolution

Weird is the new Normal.
This is the third book in a series; Primordia. It's a good series that gets better and better.

1.) Primordia I - In Search Of The Lost World - is a good book.

2.) Primordia II - Return to The Lost World - is a really great book.

3.) Primordia III - The Lost World ReEvolution - is an AWESOME book!

The story structure is pure genius. This is not another boring redo of the "End of the World". Other authors are writing zombie apocalypses. The world ends in the obliteration of all life. Mr. Beck has flipped that idea. Primordia shows that the most intriguing kind of apocalypse is that of the success of life, not it's failure. He’s writing thoughtful, original, exciting science-fiction/horror/adventure. My very favorite kind of book. I always love intelligent action tales, yet hardly ever find them.

As story tellers go, Beck is one in a million. No, make that one in a 100 million!

The author has brought his brilliant mind to the complex puzzle of time loops and the extreme dangers of a prehistoric world. A place where human’s would never survive even a short walk out side.

This book envelopes a seed from another brilliant author’s idea…
Ray Bradbury's story "A Sound of Thunder" talks about "The Butterfly Effect". Bradbury’s famous story is about people in the future paying millions to travel back in time and hunt T-Rex’s. Yet, they discover a butterfly that was accidentally stepped on during the hunt ends up altering the future in awful ways when they return to it.

100 million years is a long time to alter evolution and change the future. Good things become extinct. Horrible things are born, or continue on.

This book discribes a huge overwhelming frightening sense of unstoppable dread from the vast power of 100 million years of evolution. The world is changing. Monsters are born. Nothing you can do will deny an unstoppable force like evolution from catching up with your world and destroying it… and you.

Awesome story!
Thank you Greig Beck.

P.S.
Then as I re-read the story something else occurred to me.
OK. Primordial. Time loops. Spirals in time.
Any little thing can cause vast changes in a future 100 million years away.

If you kill a butter fly 100 millions years in the past you could change all modern society, and rearrange the pecking order of earth’s species.

I started to wonder if…
1.) What if Primordia is the asteroid that hit earth 100 million years ago?
2.) What if it was Primordia that causes the extinction of the Dinosaurs?

3.) What if, caught in the electromagnetic time-warp, humans from the future change something and the time-warp alters… and the collision of Primordia and Earth doesn’t happen?
Or…
4.) What if a human being back 100 million years causes electromagnetic changes that make the meteor Primordia impact the earth and that causes the extinction of the Dinosaurs?
Or…
5.) What if sending a human being back 100 million years somehow prevented the meteor Primordia from hitting the earth and it does not kill the Dinosaurs -The dinosaurs never go extinct?

6.) As the tale was told, I started to wonder if the meteoroid Primordia was going to impact into the earth - or miss impacting the earth - all in that insane electromagnetic time-warp.

What if we were witness to it not impacting the earth, and not destroying the reign of the thunder lizards? Yet that already happened. So, eh, would we get caught in a time-downward-spiral that would twist backwards into ever more horrible possible futures? Would the "Monk-ta-pus-es" become the new alpha-predators / rulers of our planet?

I leave all that to Greig Beck.

WOW

What a climax to the series, full of action, emotion and yes scary unimaginable creatures only Greig can invent from nature which just love us small soft humans. Thank you Ben for sharing the story so us humans learn or should I say Greig. Fantastic riveting story. What can one say Sean Mangan is just such a fantastic narrator he transports you into that time zone.

The finale for the Primordia trilogy

The trilogy draws to a close as our heroes go back to that plateau one last time. Why? The stakes are nothing short of the future of the human race. No pressure.

Our stalwart heroes that survived the first two books start to notice changes in reality that they conclude were caused by tampering with Earth's past. Most likely by Andy, the man who decided to stay behind the last time the time portal opened.

We get a replay of the second books scenes of hiring mercenaries, offering them huge amounts of cash for a suicide mission that no one can ever be prepared for.

Prehistoric adventures with Andy are interposed with the"rescue mission". Many gruesome deaths later, we need to figure out a legitimate way to conclude this series. That conclusion is the story's weakest point. Part out of the blue happenstance and part shaggy dog story about how these books were written. Not horrible by any means, but it seemed like the author wrote himself into a corner where this was the best strategy.

As a whole, I personally view this as the weakest in the trilogy while simultaneously being the most science fiction out there plot. If you have read the first two books, then you need to read this one as well. If you have not read the earlier books, this will be very confusing. I give this a conditional recommendation. A good but not great effort.

Another rollercoaster of a book

What an end to the series! Selfishness and greed did nit payoff. Highly recommend this.

Fantastic series

What an emotional roller coaster. From terror to laughs to being close to tears I really enjoyed this series. If you are a Beck fan and haven’t listened to it what are you waiting for. And if you’ve never read Beck before this is a great place to start. And Sean Mangan has to be one of my very favorite voices to listen to.

Well, Gluck You!

Loved the story and didn't find it hard to finish. I do have a slight issue with all the party not making it. I mean I can see most dying, but one of the mercenaries( Francis) was I feel an unnecessary exit. Loved all the imagery and imagined re-evolutions.

Greig Beck Excellence!

Primordial III is so good, I read the ebook when it released, won the physical book, then bought the audiobook to listen in. This book, the finalization of the series, brought the adventure to a realistically fictional ending that satisfied my soul. It’s got stupid antics, monsters and creatures of nightmares. Read this series!!
