Overview

What if the power to control the most terrifying animals in history fell into the hands of one of the most brilliant and ferocious military leaders of all time?

"Battlesaurus "reimagines the 1815 Battle of Waterloo as something other than a crushing defeat for the French emperor Napoleon Bonaparte, when he unleashes a terrible secret weapon giant carnivorous survivors from pre-history on his unsuspecting British and Prussian adversaries. In this world, smaller saurs are an everyday danger in the forests of Europe, and the Americas are a forbidden zone roamed by the largest and most deadly animals ever to walk the earth. But in his quest for power, Napoleon has found a way to turn these giant dinosaurs into nineteenth-century weapons of mass destruction. Only Willem Verheyen, an outsider living in hiding in the tiny village of Gaillemarde, has the power to ruin the tyrant s plans. And Napoleon will stop at nothing to find him.

War is coming, and young Willem is no longer safe, for Gaillemarde is just a stone s throw from the fields of Waterloo fields which will soon run red with blood. "Battlesaurus: Rampage at Waterloo" by Brian Falkner is the first in a thrilling alternate historical fantasy duology, which concludes with the sequel, "Battlesaurus: Clash of Empires."

Part historical fiction, part dinosaur fantasy mash-up, this book will appeal to history buffs and dinosaur fanatics alike. The battle scenes between Napoleon's army and the British are depicted in incredible detail, making readers feel as if they are right in the midst of the fight . . . The first of a promising duology that readers will find thrilling and positively addicting. " School Library Journal"

This alternative history asks, what if Napoleon won the battle at Waterloo . . . The novel quickly ramps up to suspense, immersing the reader in the swiftly moving plot. Characters are very well drawn, capturing the reader's sympathy. With an ending wide open for a sequel, complete with a plot-thickening cliff-hanger, one can only hope that Falkner is a swift writer.
