More About the Author

Thomas P. Hopp writes science fiction and mystery/thriller novels that make use of his background as a scientist and scholar of the natural world. His stories have won multiple literary awards and gained him a worldwide following. He is an active professional member of both the Mystery Writers of America and the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America.

Before he took up writing, Tom was an internationally recognized molecular biologist. He discovered powerful hormones that strengthen the immune system. He helped found the multi-billion-dollar Seattle biotechnology company, Immunex Corporation. He advised the Immunex team that created the blockbuster arthritis drug Enbrel. He innovated techniques for analyzing the structures of protein molecules. He developed the first commercially successful nanotechnology device, a molecular handle for manipulating molecules at the atomic level. This product, the "Flag epitope," has been used in molecular biology labs throughout the world to study healthy and diseased human cells as well as every major microbe known to science.

Tom's mystery stories follow a super-intelligent sleuth, Dr. Peyton McKean, known as "The Greatest Mind Since Sherlock Holmes." Like the author himself, Dr. McKean is not so much a user of DNA tests as an inventor of DNA tests. Viruses, microbes, and evil geniuses form the core of his opposition. Dr. McKean possesses tremendous intellectual power, but often must back it up with daring feats that would challenge James Bond.

Tom's Dinosaur Wars books have been described as "Star Wars meets Jurassic Park." Featuring laser-blasting space invaders and huge beasts revived from Earth's past, these tales follow Yellowstone Park naturalist Chase Armstrong and Montana rancher's daughter Kit Daniels as they struggle to survive in a world where dinosaurs live again. These exciting science fiction adventures are suitable for all ages and both genders.

Format: Paperback
When I recieved this item, it literally only took me about 3 days to read it because it just kept drawing me in, kept enticing me to read more to find out what happens next. The characters are well thought-out, and the story itself is detailed and yet easy to read. I have read this and the original and loved them both. I am particularly fascinated by how the author is able to write down an explaination for the return of the dinosaurs in a believable and well-executed manner. There isn't enough I can say about these two books. I recommend them to anyone who loves dinosaurs, sci-fi, or just a good book in general.

Format: Paperback
I am rapidly becoming a big fan of Thomas Hopp's writing. Dinosaur Wars Counterattack is another good old fashioned adventure story, just like the first book. Hopp has a way with characters. The hero and heroine, Chase and Kit, are two young people I want to spend more time with. They seem to get into the toughest spots with dinosaurs, then somehow come out alive. This is really a page turner, just like before.
The dinosaurs in this book are extremely realistic, with great pains taken to "flesh them out" in detail, while not detracting from a rapid-fire plot. I was not aware that many dinosaurs had feathers or fur on them, until reading these books. So long scaly lizards, here come the warm blooded, seriously hungry dinos.
While the beasts eat their share of humans, this book is definitely rated G, because there is nothing a younger reader would need to feel squeemish about. There are no "adult" situations beyond a little kissy-face, and, as I found out, there is a refreshing lack of profane language. Hopp seems intent on making his characters fine, upstanding people, generating excitement by casting them into desperate circumstances. Works for me.
As I did with Dinosaur Wars, I give this novel my wholehearted endorsement. It is an undiscovered gem and someday I predict: a major motion picture.
