The Dinosaur Lords: A Novel - Victor Milán

I'm not sold on this one yet. I've been having a terrible time following what's been going on. Why did Rob, who seemed to admire Voyvod Karyl Bogomirskiy, try so hard to set things up so that he'd be defeated? And why was Voyvod (Karyl? I've seen him called either one) betrayed?


I got this almost entirely because of the dinosaurs, and I'm a little bummed that, so far, I'm having trouble picturing them as the living, breathing, awesome creatures they're supposed to be.
