The Dinosaur Lords

Book 1, The Dinosaur Lords - A Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


"It's like a cross between Jurassic Park and Game of Thrones." —George R. R. Martin

A world made by the Eight Creators on which to play out their games of passion and power, Paradise is a sprawling, diverse, often brutal place. Men and women live on Paradise as do dogs, cats, ferrets, goats, and horses. But dinosaurs predominate: wildlife, monsters, beasts of burden–and of war. Colossal plant-eaters like Brachiosaurus; terrifying meat-eaters like Allosaurus, and the most feared of all, Tyrannosaurus rex. Giant lizards swim warm seas. Birds (some with teeth) share the sky with flying reptiles that range in size from bat-sized insectivores to majestic and deadly Dragons.

Thus we are plunged into Victor Milán's splendidly weird world of The Dinosaur Lords, a place that for all purposes mirrors 14th century Europe with its dynastic rivalries, religious wars, and byzantine politics…except the weapons of choice are dinosaurs. Where vast armies of dinosaur-mounted knights engage in battle. During the course of one of these epic battles, the enigmatic mercenary Dinosaur Lord Karyl Bogomirsky is defeated through betrayal and left for dead. He wakes, naked, wounded, partially amnesiac–and hunted. And embarks upon a journey that will shake his world.

From Publishers Weekly

May 25, 2015 – Mil n (War in Tethyr) takes the arresting idea of knights on dinosaurs and expands it into the beginning of a complex and sweeping epic. The story is set in the Empire of Nuevaropa, a land much like late medieval Europe. Rob Korrigan, a dinosaur master, turns the tide of battle against noble mercenary captain Karyl Bogomirskiy's White River Legion of battle triceratops, and the forces of Count Jaume Llobregat and Duke Falk von Hornberg finish Karyl's destruction. Karyl dies twice, is revived both times, and eventually joins up with Rob to defend the pacifists of nearby Providence. Falk and Jaume return to the empire's summer capital, where Jaume's love, the princess Melod a, awaits as do murder, intrigue, and a new war. Meanwhile, the Creators' Grey Angels, mysterious entities who occasionally dabble in human affairs, watch and wait. Mil n skillfully crafts his characters, giving each one vivid individuality. He has also given significant thought to just how knights might use dinosaurs as mounts in combat, suggesting novel techniques such as hadrosaurs that make sonic attacks. Readers who pick this up for the gimmick will relish it for the able storytelling.

Customer Reviews


This was the most boring book I ever tried to read. I could not even finish it.

250 pages that felt like a 1000

Now that I know the name I can make sure to avoid it.


What were you guys expecting? It's the start of an epic series! Knights on dinosaurs, intriguing characters, knights on dinosaurs, great storytelling, and knights on dinosaurs. I love the book and can't wait for the next. Great job, Victor.
