Review by kingoftheicedragons
A novel from the British TV series Primeval, which other than Star Trek, I usually don't read novels based off of TV series. But I like the series, dealing with anomolies through time, and creatures from both the past and the future coming through time into our own, and unfortunately, the seasons of this series are short (only 13 episodes over two seasons, with another 10 planned for this season and rumors that it's the last season), so I thought, why not give the novels a try.The first novel of the Primeval series has the team traveling to Peru in investigate the disappearance of the sons of a high-ranking British government official as well as the report of what seems to be an anomoly deep in the rain forest. What I like best about this novel is that I could very easily see what was going on in my head with the different character voices and their mannerisms and behaviors. The author seems to have captured the spirit of the show perfectly, so reading the novel was a perfect extension of the show. What I didn't necessarily care for with this novel, though, is that it acts as if this was the first time an anomoly was found to be outside of the UK (and it seems that the novel series will in fact deal with anomolies that appear outside of the UK, leaving the series to explore the going-ons that take place in the UK). However, I thought it was established in the pilot episode of the series that anomolies had occured outside of the UK, with artifacts being discovered in the Indian Ocean or something similar, so some of the facts to me seem to be outside the continuity established by the series, though that is easy enough to overcome. The novel also seems to be ahead of its time, as it explores the concept that some of the creatures that have come through these anomolies in the past have been interpreted to be gods and beasts of different ancient cultures, something that the third season of the TV series is starting to focus more on.If you like the TV series, you will undoubtedly love this novel.
