Jurassic Jackaroo: Jasper’s Junction (A Hunted Tribe Prequel Book 1) by Roma Gray was interesting to say the least. It’s a kind of Westworld meets Jurassic Park with a bit from every assassin story ever told thrown in for good measure. To be fair, I couldn’t put this down; once I got going, I was in it to the end. I have not read The Hunted Tribe, but I will now, just to see where the story goes. This is a cleverly written book with a unique plot. Ms. Gray has an incredible sense of adventure and a very imaginative mind, and this comes through in a story that is gripping. The characters are very well developed and fit in with this fun read very well. And it is fun; I don’t think anyone who reads it would disagree. Ms. Gray is a very talented writer and I left this story wanting more – a lot more!
