Paradise is a sprawling, diverse, often cruel world. There are humans on Paradise but dinosaurs predominate: wildlife, monsters, beasts of burden, and of war. Armored knights ride dinosaurs to battle legions of war-trained Triceratops and their upstart peasant crews.

Karyl Bogomirsky is one such knight who has chosen to rally those who seek a way from the path of war and madness. The fact that the Empire has announced a religious crusade against this peaceful kingdom, the people who just wish to live in peace anathema, and they all are to be converted or destroyed doesn't help him one bit.

Things really turn to mud when the dreaded Grey Angels, fabled ancient weapons of the Gods who created Paradise in the first place come on the scene after almost a millennia. Everyone thought that they were fables used to scare children. They are very much real.

And they have come to rid the world of sin...including all the humans who manifest those vices.

THE DINOSAUR KNIGHTS is the second in Victor Milan's lush, exotic tale about knights. Knights riding dinosaurs.

Epic Fantasy. Picking up where The Dinosaur Lords left off, this 2nd installment in a series finds mercenary captain Karyl Bogomirsky and dinosaur master Rob Korrigan on trial for their role in defending the pacifists of Paradise against the Empire of Nuevaropa's crusader armies. Even more dangerous than the Empire's tank-like war triceratops units, however, are the dreaded Grey Angels, emissaries of the Creator, whose mission is to cleanse the world of sin and ensure that all people adhere to the imperial faith. A large cast of characters and extensive world-building provide ample scope for a dramatic saga of war, politics, and religion that should please fans of George R.R. Martin fans currently awaiting The Winds of Winter.
