Welcome to The Great Zoo of China

9781409134251This week, our brethren at Orion Fiction are excited to publish The Great Zoo of China by Matthew Reilly. A best seller both here and abroad, his new book comes with the simplest, may microphone dropping, pitch a publisher (and reader) could ask for: Jurassic Park… with Dragons!

Prepare for blurbness…

It is a secret the Chinese government has been keeping for 40 years. They have found a species of animal no one believed even existed. It will amaze the world.

Now the Chinese are ready to unveil their astonishing discovery within the greatest zoo ever constructed. A small group of VIPs and journalists has been brought to the zoo deep within China to see its fabulous creatures for the first time. Among them is Dr Cassandra Jane ‘CJ’ Cameron, a writer for NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC and an expert on reptiles.

The visitors are assured by their Chinese hosts that they will be struck with wonder at these beasts, that they are perfectly safe, and that nothing can go wrong…

And of course nothing does go wrong…

No wait. It goes spectacularly wrong. What follows is a relentless action thriller that talks more to the primal little piece of your brain than anything else. Dinosaurs vs helicopters? Check. Dragons vs flamethrowers? Check. Dragons vs dragons? Check. Escapism at its best.
