Product description

Product Description

When a new island forms in the South Pacific after a volcanic eruption, nearby nations quarrel over who owns the fresh land. One of the countries sends an advance scouting party to plant flags and lay claim to the nascent isle, but none of that party returns. The sponsoring nation is accused of deception. Political rivals assert that members of the landing party are still on the island, building a military installation in secret.

In response, a United Nations expedition is assembled to land a second, neutral outfit comprised of scientists and humanitarian aid workers. This team is well-equipped and ready to report back to the U.N. in-situ about the fate of the first party. But once on the island, they discover that along with hot magma, something else has been dredged up from deep within the Earth...something alive.

WOW, Loved this story. A team gets on the newly formed volcanic island with no weapons to investigate what happened to an earlier landing party. big mistake .

As I was sitting comfortably in my chair .. . I was thinking that I was sure glad I didn't volunteer to go there. If you like jurassic park you will love this one. Lost of action with surprises along the way. This book would made a great movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars But I love dinosaur books and this was a fun one 6 November 2016

If you're looking for a literary masterpiece, this isn't it. But I love dinosaur books and this was a fun one. Lots of action, lots of different types of dinosaurs and a unique location. The character development was somewhat lacking besides the person who emerges as our protagonist, but I read a different type of book if that's what i'm in the mood for.
5.0 out of 5 stars They never expected to find anything on this new island 8 December 2016

4.5 out of 5 stars

After a new island is formed from a volcano in the South Pacific, local islands send an expedition to claim the island. When they don’t return, the UN decides to jump in to figure out what is going on, fearing a conflict breaking out between the neighboring islands. When this landing party gets there, they find more than they could have ever expected.

The narration for Landing Party was done by Jeffrey S. Fellin, who does a great job. His voice allowed for the action to feel fast-paced and the building parts to feel more thrilling. Fellin does a great job narrating Chesler’s work, and I will definitely be listening to more of his audiobooks, especially when they team up.

I honestly wasn’t even sure what the actual plot or synopsis of this book was, I just knew that it had a dinosaur on the front and it was written by Rick Chesler. I honestly didn’t need much more. Now that I’ve read the book — I’m glad I made that blind choice. Landing Party was an excellent book in the Dinosaur Thriller category with a different spin from the norm. There were no genetic mistakes or genetic miracles here. I won’t give away where the dinos came from because it’s an interesting twist to the story.

The characters in Landing Party were a real eclectic bunch. From National Geographic explorers to doctors and geologists. The UN sent everyone they thought they were going to need for this expedition. The actual people were all different and almost all of them had personal missions on top of the UN’s mission, making each character unique and feel real.

The writing of Landing Party was really good, lots of action with a slight breather in between. Every time you think someone is safe, Chesler throws them back into the fire. Having so many characters in the beginning of this book, I had a feeling that things weren’t going to go well for all of them.

Overall, Landing Party was a really enjoyable dino thriller. Lots of action, a slightly different take on the genre, and great narration make this an easy book to finish in a few sittings.

Wow! I have always loved Rick Chesler's books. This one doesn't disappoint. It's nerve wracking from the first page to the last. A must read! Can't wait for the next one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy-to-read novella! 5 January 2017
By Chris Behrendt - Published on

Honestly, I had a fantastic time reading this. It was short, sweet, and doesn't waste time getting going. It didn't have the most expansive character development, but that doesn't detract from what it is - a short, hellishly entertaining ensemble story that has dinosaurs. If you're looking for an easy, very entertaining read, this is the book for you!
