Format: Mass Market Paperback
Buy this book for the cover alone.
Seriously. Is it just me, or did book covers used to be a lot more fun? I look at this, I see a chimp with a spear fighting a thunder lizard, I have to buy it. I would buy anything from a geometry text book to a Harliequinn romance novel if it had an ape fighting a dinosaur on the cover. I just look at this thing, I'm twelve again.
But what about the book itself? Well, it's based on Tim Burton's 2001 remake, and a follow up to the same author's PoTA: The Fall, a decent book with a sadly dino free cover. The story follows a group of apes setting out to found a new colony in strange, uncharted land. Problem is something reptilian has gotten there first, and is developing a taste for ape. The story almost totally ignores the humans living on the planet, which is a bit of a letdown as a reunion between some of the characters in the first book would have been welcome. Also, though there is no cliffhanger ending, there does seem to be a lot left unsaid. I get the impression that Mr. Quick thought he'd be able to flesh out the story in further books, but the backlash against the movie put a premature stop to his plans. Still, if you enjoy the Apes movies at all, I recommend this book wholeheartedly.
Plus- Apes vs. Dinosaurs!!!

More About the Author

I'm the author of twenty-eight published books, including the seminal cyberpunk cult hit DREAMS OF FLESH AND SAND, (the first book of THE DREAM TRIO) the best-selling prehistoric thriller THE LAST MAMMOTH, (writing as Margaret Allan), dozens of shorter works of fiction, and several screenplays for film and television.

I started out typing poetry at the age of thirteen on an Underwood portable that smelled of mothballs, machine oil, and rust. Currently, my writer's toolkit includes desktop, notebook, and pad computers equipped with voice recognition systems, and a smartphone so I can carry much of my brainpower with me.

Lately, as print publishing continues its chaotic collapse into the digital age, I've slowed down a bit, though I do try write at least one book a year. In one of my early novels, I had a character ordering groceries online - long before the WWW existed. Today, I do that very thing myself.

I write a well-known and respected libertarian-conservative blog called The Daily Pundit, where, on New Year's Day, 2002, I named the Blogosphere. I also maintain an emergency preparedness site called Survival-Preps.com.

Currently I am at work on a massive story of an America in financial, social, and political collapse after a catastrophic terror attack on the states west of the Rockies. The first book, Lightning Fall: A Novel of Disaster, was recently released. The second book, After the Fall: American Caesar is due out in the spring of 2015.
