    " Very good book. I didn't realize it was part of a series. Adam's Dad has gone off again to see about another job and left Adam alone again. Then he meets Zed the Z. Rex after a harrowing day. "

    " This is a book I received for a VOYA review. I've read (and loved) three of this author's young adult books written under the name Stephen Cole, "The Wereling" werewolf series. This book (written as Steve Cole)is the first in a new series "The Hunting" written for middle grades and up. Thirteen year old Adam loves playing the Ultra-Reality (UR) video games that his father creates. However, UR gets far too real when rogue scientists use his father's technology to regenerate a super intelligent dinosaur. The dinosaur views Adam as his brother, and together they seek to rescue his father from the scientists who have kidnapped him. I didn't find the brotherly relationship between the boy and the dinosaur to be well developed, and I didn't enjoy this book nearly as much as the author's earlier "The Wereling" series. However, this book may appeal to fans of books such as Roland Smith's "Cryptid Hunters". "
