The Great Zoo of China

I’ve been reading some great books lately. This is not one of them, but it’s great fun to read if you’re in the mood for a thriller, especially one like Jurassic Park. China has been working for decades to create a tourist attraction that will outdo anything Walt Disney could dream up. They have created an enormous zoo, with cable cars, waterfalls, a crater, castles, and a whole worker city. Journalists, photographers, and diplomats are invited to a private tour. The zoo turns out to be full of dragons (and some crocodiles), with a pair of electromagnetic shields keeping them inside the valley, and shields around vehicles and people protecting them from the dragons. The dragons are hatching now because of global warming. CJ Cameron, who studies reptiles, and her photographer brother Hamish must try to rescue the U.S. Ambassador to China when it turns out that the dragons are very smart, dangerous, and out for revenge. Reilly’s Jack West series, beginning with 7 Deadly Wonders, has more character development and a less predictable plot, but this fast-paced adventure is sure to be a hit.
