A solid 4 star book.
I really like Emmet and Calvin together. They complement each other well. Where Emmet is impulsive and acts without thinking, Calvin is methodical. Emmet needs Calvin's know how and Calvin needs Emmet to give him that extra push to take a chance.
Beyond a cool science fiction story, there's also a good mystery here. Who is Dr. Catalyst and did he survive at the end?
The science behind this story was great too. I've always been fascinated by prehistoric creatures and their ecology. This is a perfect combination of the two. I still want to know more about these creatures and how they were made.
I think the plot was well paced and moved along at all the right times. The creatures had a good introduction and it was a good example of showing vs telling. I like that even though we didn't find you've who Dr. Catalyst was, he still got his page time through the story.
