Atlanta, GA, November 29, 2018— What if science got it wrong and instead of dying in a mass extinction, dinosaurs actually took off in a veritable Noah’s Ark when the going got tough— and relocated? Author and board-certified doctor Glenn Parris, in his new book Dragon’s Heir: The Archeologist’s Tale, blends ancient culture with modern-day issues in an imaginative tale that has appeal to readers of all ages.
With engaging characters, an original premise and compelling themes of multiculturalism and politics, Dragon’s Heir features a cast of advanced, non-mammalian people known as the Efilu, who once lived on Earth during the age of the dinosaurs. Faced with a worldwide catastrophe of their own doing, the Efilu gathered together the populations of every intelligent species on the planet and evacuated, leaving behind a small contingent of a single species—known as The Keepers and their leader, Dragon—to restore their dying world.
Did science get it wrong when they said dinosaurs died in a mass extinction? Author and board-certified doctor Glenn Parris sets imaginations on fire in a delightful story that suggests the dinosaurs merely up and left when the going got tough—taken to a new home in a virtual Noah’s Ark. With enough action to hold a child’s imagination captive (and adults!), this book will be cherished as a new addition to favorite nighttime story-telling.
Some 65 million years later, an expedition of Efilu returns in search of a cure to a plague threatening their vast civilization. Instead of the barren world they expected, they find a fertile world overrun by mammals, and Dragon’s coven of Keepers is nowhere to be found.
