Please Don’t Feed the Dinosaurs by Corinna Turner
IN A JURASSIC FUTURE, SOME STILL CHOOSE FREEDOM—DESPITE THE DANGERS.
It takes more than a T. rex scratching its back on his Habitat Vehicle to alarm young hunter Joshua—he’s used to living close to nature. But a routine visit to the zoo to deliver a new velociraptor turns deadly when he comes face-to-face with an eleven-foot allosaur called Gold. He knew her when she was a tiny chick—is he a friend from the past—or dinner?
Meanwhile, Darryl and her brother, Harry, are taken completely by surprise when their father remarries. Their new step-mom is a glamorous fashion designer who’s never been outside the city’s electric fences. How will she cope with a life of dinosaur farming? All Darryl can do is try to get her new stepmom safely to the farm. But once you’re unSPARKed, things don’t always go to plan…
The unSPARKed series:
CAN HUMANS AND DINOSAURS CO-EXIST?
In a Jurassic future, humans no longer have dominion over the earth. Most people live in cities, behind high electric fences, but some choose the freedom of life unSPARKed, close to nature. If you like Jurassic Park, Jurassic World, and Mad Max, you’ll love this pulse-pounding, futuristic, dino-dystopian series with a western twist. Since 2017, award-winning author Corinna Turner has been writing the unSPARKed series. Check it out today!
Corinna Turner is an expert at creating new, exciting worlds in her fictional books. Whether it be a dystopian future, a fantasy world, or a Jurassic-park type of environment, her descriptions brilliantly engulf the reader into her writing.
Turner’s unSPARKed collection is a unique series set in a future where dinosaurs once again roam the world. She flawlessly blends this exciting backdrop with her strong faith to create a one-of-a-kind series for Catholic teens. Each installment is a relatively short story that follows the lives of three teens. Darryl, her brother Harry, and dino-hunter Joshua.
Darryl has a deep faith but is tough as nails when it comes to dealing with dangerous dinosaurs. Harry is determined to show that he’s growing up and able to pull his weight around the family farm since their mother passed away. Their rugged upbringing, however, has done little to equip them for the newest life-altering change in their lives—their father’s new, city-wife who is struggling to adjust to living in the wild, dangerous, dinosaur-filled country.
Meanwhile, in a parallel storyline, we meet Joshua who has faced his own difficult upbringing, being raised by his single father and uncle. But now this teenager is alone in the world, trying to live the only life he knows as a dinosaur hunter.
Each exciting story leaves you yearning for the next installment. If you’re looking for a series that will keep your teens reading this summer, and encourage their faith, this might be what you’re looking for.
A note from Reviewer:
As a writer and a mother, I’m always searching for wonderful Christian books for teens of all ages. I truly believe one way we can encourage teens in their faith is through fiction with positive messages, embedded in great stories. There are many fantastic Christian and Catholic teen novels out today but they can be hard to find. I’m excited to share some of these books with you.
