Annotation

In a roaring sequel to Battlesaurus: Rampage at Waterloo, Napoleon's enemies are in danger of extinction.

Publisher Description

In this stunning conclusion to a unique alt-history action-adventure duology, dinosaurs from a forbidden world have been turned into unstoppable weapons by one of the most ferocious military leaders of all time. In the wake of Napoleon's crushing victory at Waterloo, the vicious French general Marc Thibault and his brigade of giant carnivorous battlesaurs have struck terror across Europe. England stands alone, but an invasion is looming. Its only hope is a secret attack led by a magician's son named Willem deep inside enemy territory, to the very heart of Napoleon's terrifying new army. Deception and betrayal threaten the mission from its outset, but the courage and perseverance of Willem the "saur killer" and his friends lead to a clash of titanic proportions.

Review

"A stunning conclusion to [the Battlesaurus] duology . . . the dinosaur battles are terrific and should appeal to teen readers with a penchant for action and suspense." --VOYA

Battlesaurus: Rampage at Waterloo

"Falkner gives Napoleon a toothy secret weapon in this decidedly alternate history." --Kirkus Reviews

"Part historical fiction, part dinosaur fantasy mash-up, this book will appeal to history buffs and dinosaur fanatics alike. The battle scenes between Napoleon's army and the British are depicted in incredible detail, making readers feel as if they are right in the midst of the fight . . . The first of a promising duology that readers will find thrilling and positively addicting." --School Library Journal

"This alternative history asks, what if Napoleon won the battle at Waterloo . . . The novel quickly ramps up to suspense, immersing the reader in the swiftly moving plot. Characters are very well drawn, capturing the reader's sympathy. With an ending wide open for a sequel, complete with a plot-thickening cliff-hanger, one can only hope that Falkner is a swift writer." --Booklist
