The Dinosaur Lords: A Novel - Victor Milán

It bothers me that this dinosaur is able to sweat. Neither reptiles nor birds can do that, so I'd think dinosaurs wouldn't be able to either.

Melodia to Jaume. She fears for her father's life and wants to go help him, but Jaume holds her back:

 

"She snarled at him, feeling a raptorish urge to take a bite out of his face."

 

I think this might be my favorite line in the book so far.

There's a good chance this is going to be my last Booklikesopoly read. I'll miss this game - it was usually a fun way to select my next book.

 

I have a feeling Dinosaur Lords is going to end up on my library donation pile. I can see the Game of Thrones comparisons, but it doesn't grab me the same way that book did. The politics bores me. I don't really have any favorite characters, either. Melodia comes the closest, but... I don't know. I feel like the text has spent more time emphasizing her desire to have sex with Jaume than her desire to do something useful.

The Devil in Silver - Victor LaValle

So far I am just following the story to see where it's going. Pepper is the main character and after being held by three cops is dropped off at a pyschiatric hospital. Now he just has to get through the next three days and he will be released.

I'm not sold on this one yet. I've been having a terrible time following what's been going on. Why did Rob, who seemed to admire Voyvod Karyl Bogomirskiy, try so hard to set things up so that he'd be defeated? And why was Voyvod (Karyl? I've seen him called either one) betrayed?

 

I got this almost entirely because of the dinosaurs, and I'm a little bummed that, so far, I'm having trouble picturing them as the living, breathing, awesome creatures they're supposed to be.
