Description

Magdalys and the squad are flying south on pteroback. South to rescue her older brother. South to war. The squad links up with the dino-mounted troops of the Louisiana Native Guard, an all-black regiment in the Union Army fighting to free their people. They're led by General Sheridan, surrounded by enemy forces in Tennessee and desperate for any edge to sway the tide of battle. Magdalys's burgeoning powers might be the Union's last hope. But she doesn't want to abandon the search for her brother. And she might not be the only one with a mysterious connection to dinosaurs. With the Civil War raging around her and the Union on the brink of collapse, how can Magdalys choose between the army that needs her help to survive and the brother she risked everything to save?

Professional reviews

"As this sequel to DACTYL HILL SQUAD opens, listeners find dinosaur wrangler Magadalys Roca and her team of pterodactyl-riding orphans en route from Brooklyn to New Orleans, where they hope to learn the fate of Magadalys's brother, a wounded Union soldier. Returning narrator Channie Waites brings boundless energy to this uncommonly nuanced Civil War story. Before the team members reach their destination, they're swept into battle alongside dino-mounted African-American troops, and Magadalys is forced to choose between finding her brother or using her powerful dino-wrangling ability to aid the Union war effort. Waites turns out distinct character accents; weighty emotional beats; and breathless, pulse-pounding battle scenes. Though her abrupt shifts in pitch and volume are occasionally jarring, Waites's lively performance is sure to hold listeners' attention. R.A.H. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine"
