Thunder Run (Dactyl Hill Squad, Book Three)
This is a great historical fantasy story about a young dinowrangler fighting in the Civil War. Thunder Run is about Magdalys, who is a dinowrangler and a member of the Dactyl Hill Squad. She rescues her brother from an old mansion, then learns of a new threat to the Union. She must travel to Mexico and use her connection with the dinos to defeat Emperor Maximilian’s forces, or else the Union will face a war on two fronts.
I really liked that the cavalry and artillery on both sides of the war used dinosaurs. There were many fun and unique characters in this book, including a few dinos. Magdalys is brave, determined, and protective of her friends. She is also good at making friends, especially with dinosaurs. I think Magdalys’s connection with the dinos is awesome, and I like that she is trying to overthrow the Knights of the Golden Circle.
I would recommend this book to kids aged 9 to 13. If you like dinosaurs and the Civil War, then this is the perfect book for you.
