Dinosaur Lake by [Griffith, Kathryn Meyer]


Dinosaur Lake IV

by Kathryn Meyer Griffith




Genre: Horror / Suspense

My Review

For those of you who love dinosaurs, especially the ones that eat you, you’re gonna want this book and this series.

It began with just one dinosaur, eating it’s way through Crater Lake National Park and the town of Klamath Falls. Those who survived thought it was over. But not too long after, different ones come, and the dying begins again.

It’s been seven years since it all began and the dinosaurs are winning.

I’d been waiting for this final book in the Dinosaur Lake series and ate it up faster than the killer dinosaurs ate man. You’re dropped right smack in the thick of things. Chief Park Ranger Henry Shore and his wife, along with several others, are trapped in a ranger station. They do their best to make it impregnable, but the creatures are cunning, hungry, and dead set on getting in. Their hope lies in the expertise of paleontologist Doctor Justin Maltin, Henry’s son-in-law. Can he find a way to send the dinosaurs back to extinction? And who will be left?

Having read the other books, I knew Kathryn didn’t spare any of her character’s. Many that I was fond of didn’t make it this far. And of those who did, I don’t doubt some will also fall to the creatures.

As the dinosaurs do their thing, you don’t get much down time between the savage attacks and it’s a toss up who will win, man or beast. Kathryn gets very creative with her monsters. They aren’t like what you expect. They’re worse. And I loved them!

This isn’t just occurring in the park and surrounding towns. It’s happening all over the world. Think Jurasic Park on steroids. Is this The End? I believe it’s the end of this series. But I can see so many ways the author can take this further. Grab the series and find out.

  5  Stars



For seven long years Chief Park Ranger Henry Shore has been dealing with and fighting anachronistic dinosaurs in his beloved Crater Lake National Park and in the surrounding town of Klamath Falls. It began with one lone leviathan, the one he tongue-in-cheek called Godzilla. Henry and his band of heroes defeated it but others followed: the flying varieties he named gargoyles, the mutant T-Rexes and roaming velociraptors that were so much smarter than their ancient ancestors. He, his rangers and the National Guard soldiers, fought all of them, but still the dinosaurs, cunningly destructive and blood-thirsty, kept coming. No one knew where they came from or what the future would now hold for a besieged humanity, they only knew the monsters were spreading like a voracious wildfire and had to be stopped before they ravaged the world. Eventually, he and his wife, Ann, their family and friends, retreated into a fortified ranger headquarters where they continued to battle the proliferating dinosaurs. Will Henry’s son-in-law, Doctor Justin Maltin, a brilliant paleontologist, find a way to exterminate the creatures and save them…save the world? And, more importantly, would he be able to do it in time? Dinosaur Lake IV Dinosaur Wars is the fourth and final book of the Dinosaur Lake series.

About the Author
Kathryn Meyer Griffith

About Kathryn Meyer Griffithlook for all my NEW covers! on my older books.

Since childhood I’ve been an artist and worked as a graphic designer in the corporate world and for newspapers for twenty-three years before I quit to write full time. But I’d already begun writing novels at 21, over forty-four years ago now, and have had twenty-three (ten romantic horror, two horror novels, two romantic SF horror, one romantic suspense, one romantic time travel, one historical romance, two thrillers, and four murder mysteries) previous novels, two novellas and twelve short stories published from Zebra Books, Leisure Books, Avalon Books, The Wild Rose Press, Damnation Books/Eternal Press; and I’ve self-published my last ten novels with Amazon Kindle Direct and my Dinosaur Lake novels and Spookie Town Mysteries (Scraps of Paper, All Things Slip Away and Ghosts Beneath Us) are my best-sellers.

I’ve been married to Russell for thirty-seven years; have a son and two grandchildren and I live in a small quaint town in Illinois, which is right across the JB Bridge from St. Louis, Mo. We have a quirky cat, Sasha, and the three of us live happily in an old house in the heart of town. Though I’ve been an artist, and a folk/classic rock singer in my youth with my brother Jim, writing has always been my greatest passion, my butterfly stage, and I’ll probably write stories until the day I die…or until my memory goes.

  1. I’d use a flame thrower. Gotta love napalm in the morning when it comes to dinosaurs. LOL

  2. taylordeanbooks says:

    GUN. Haha. They’re tried and true. But maybe they won’t take down a dinosaur, just like sometimes they don’t take down a bear if you don’t hit it in the right spot. I really have no idea!! If these books are like Jurassic Park on steroids, then I’d be on edge the entire time! Those movies make my heart race. Sounds like a great series.

  3. I just nabbed book 1. I hate reading books out of order and this series sounds like fun! Thanks for the heads up.

    • fuonlyknew says:

      Yeah. I’d recommend staring with the first book. All of them are great and you’re in for a treat!

  4. Lilyn G says:

    I’ve read the first book in this series and loved it!

  5. You and Sherry have me wanting to read these. I love how suspenseful they sound.

  6. Thank you Laura for the lovely review! I think you and Sherry are my biggest fans! Go over to Sherry’s blog for a hint if I’ll write a 5th DL someday. Right now I’m working on book #26…the long awaited sequel to my best-selling 1993 mass market Zebra paperback Witches.You and Sherry made my…month with you generous reviews! Again…thank you!

    • fuonlyknew says:

      We sure do love all of your books. You continue to thrill us, Kathryn! Can’t wait to have you back again. We still have many of your books to go! I’ll head over to Sherry’s blog now. Witches was wicked. Can’t wait to see where you take us next!

      • Thank you again! My husband, Russell, and I are in the Smoky Mountains this week on vacation…it’s so beautiful! (I’m typing this from our campsite on the Little Pigeon River.)

  7. Heather C says:

    Rocket launcher. With a few heavy tranquilizer darts for help.

  8. SheilaDeeth says:

    Take it down with a rockfall. Start the rockfall with a well-placed penknife. Sheiladeeth@gmail.com

  9. David Bates says:

    I would use a hand held thermonuclear device. Launch it directly into the center of the pack.

  10. Meredith Miller says:

    Laser pistol? Elephant tranquilizers? Airplane crash? Bug zapper? Maybe it depends on the size of the dinosaur.

    • fuonlyknew says:

      It probably does depend on their size. I’m all about annihilation with big guns!

  11. Perhaps I’m watching too much Batman with my granddaughter but I would lure one toward a giant pit. Have them chase me while I am riding on a hovercraft. The pit would be covered so they couldnt see it. Have bright lights set up around the perimeter so as they get close, you flip the switch the light go on, they are shocked at the bright lights and are dazed and are angry and stumble around. While stumbling around, they hear me and try to get me, falling into the pit. Yeah, too much Batman.

  12. babyblue7299 says:

    LOL, after reading Sandy Steckler’s method, I’m going to say I’ll turn on the bright lights…via remote…from far, far away
