dragon's heir the archeologist's tale

"Dragon's Heir: The Archeologists Tale" is a sci-fi/fantasy book by Glenn Parris. Parris, a board-certified rheumatologist, has been practicing medicine and writing science fiction and medical mystery books for more than 25-years. 

Science taught us that the dinosaurs died in sudden mass extinction. In Dragon's Heir: The Archeologist's Tale, Parris challenges us to imagine that 3% of the fossil record had it wrong. Instead, Earth's Cretaceous inhabitants simply evacuated when the going got rough, and a veritable dinosaur version of Noah's Ark carried them to their new home.

The Dragon's Heir follows female archeologist Vit Na, daughter of a noble house of the Efilu. The Efilu lived on Earth during the dinosaur era and evacuated 65 million years earlier when threatened with catastrophic conditions. When the Efilu fled, they left a group of Keepers and their leader, Dragon, behind.

The Efilu's thriving civilization is threatened by a plague. They put together an expedition to travel back to Earth in search of a cure. Vit Na is out of place on the ReQam research vessel with the specialist and soldiers, but her small size turns out to be their best weapon when trouble strikes.

The new, hostile inhabitants of Earth cripple the ReQam, and the Efilu are thousands of light-years away from their base. At this point, Vit Na is charged with infiltrating these inhabitants. Surprisingly, Vit Na feels empathy for these beings and becomes an advocate for their cause.

What if Dinosaurs Didn't Become Extinct?

If you love dinosaurs, this book will appeal to you. Unique, fantastic characters; an engaging, fast-moving plot with plenty of action will keep most "Dragon's Heir" readers riveted and eager for the next book in the series.
