Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The first two volumes of the Dinoverse series, these capers star four junior high students who have somehow traveled back to prehistory and been turned into dinosaurs. Despite the "scientific facts about the era woven into the plot a little too self-consciously," PW praised the debut entry (originally published as Dinoverse) for its "enticing blend of humor, adolescent angst and crisis-a-chapter excitement." Ages 9-up. (Mar.)
Copyright 2000 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From the Inside Flap

Dinoverse is an ingenious series of adventures that throw the minds of modern 13-year-olds back in time, and into the bodies of dinosaurs. In book #1, Bertram Phillips's science fair project goes berserk, sending him and three other students to South Dakota 67 million years ago.

WOW! Could you imagine yourself trapped in the body of a gigantic T-Rex? Or even a Triceratops? Wouldn't that be awsome if that could really happen to us? Well, in this stellar new book series, written by Scott Ciencin, he in fact, does make four kids go back in time, only trapped in the bodies of dinosaurs. There is also something about this series that I have just realized about: it is somewhat in realation to the Animorphs series, by A.K. Applegate; only with dinosaurs, and without the alien invasion thing. But still, Ciencin is a new and remarkable author, that I think will have many great things happen to him in the future. His work of fiction really makes you feel as though you have somehow went to the world of dinosaurs, along with the characters in his stories. I have just recently checked out these new series at my local Barnes & Noble Booksellers store, and wow, was I impressed! I've read half-way through the first book, and can't wait 'till the new books come in! Keep up the excellent work, Scott Ciencin! If you love Animorphs, you will most certainly love Scott Ciencin's Dinoverse, full of non-stop suspense and thrills, keeping you wondering what will happen next. That's what I love about reading. The suspense that keeps you hanging and wanna read the whole thing. And Dinoverse has it all: action, trills, chills, and spills. Wou would resist reading these magical tales of wonder and adventure? Anyone who is in love with dinosuars, this is the book series for you! These books are filled with powerful imagination. If the kids in "I Was a Teenage T-Rex" thought it was tough now days, they better hold their breath, because they're about to face reality in a whole new way--or should I say, in a whole new BODY!Read more ›

Is work of fiction really makes you feel as though you have somehow went to the world of dinosaurs, along with the characters in his stories. I have just recently checked out these new series at my local Barnes & Noble Booksellers store, and wow, I was impressed! I've read halfway through the first already, and can't wait 'till the new books come in! Keep up the excellent job, Scott Ciencin! If you love Animorphs, you will most certainly love Scott Ciencin's Dinoverse, full of non-stop suspense and thrills. Each chapter leaves you hanging with a cliffhanger, making you wanna read some more. That's what I love about reading. The suspense. And Dinoverse has it all. Action, Thrills, and Spills.

I have recently checked out the new sci-fi-adventure books, Dinoverse, written by Scott Ciencin. And wow--he really knows how to write from the heart and get into his characters! Each book also gives you an idea of what it might like to be a dinosaur. You learn a lot also. We learn different varieties of dinosaurs and what they eat how they live. Storng characterization and wonderfully written, non-stop action and fun. Each chapter leaves off with a cliffhanger, making you wanna read through the whole thing. Anyway, the story of the Dinoverse series, starts out with 13-year-old, Beatram. His project goes wrong and before they know--they are stuck in the bodies of vicous dinosaurs and brought back to South Dakota 67 million years ago. I loved this book so much--I can't wait 'till Scott Ciencin's next Dinoverse book comes out! Wonderfully written--page-turning suspense. I would recommend this book to anybody that is in love with dinos or simply just read it for fun and excitment. So what are you waiting for? Stop reading these reviews and go buy the Dinoverse series now...before they become extinct!(If this were made into a movie, it would be a perfect sci-fi, adventure movie that ever one could enjoy!)
