 I like the book because this book was really fun to read and it took me  straight forward to the action. The other books talk about how the characters got ready before facing their enemies but in this book, Zack went in to the cave right after his dad got hurt. Then the whole series went wild and they got caught in an adventure before they even knew it. 

Although I like this book bu there are few things that disappointed me, as, there are few hard words for me to read. It is also a tense story and there are over violent creatures in this book.


My rating will be 4/5 because this book is about dinosaurs and I like them and as there are hard words in the book so I will give 4 stars  and not the 5.
