Argentavis Magnificens meets the Alabama State Fossil

The raptor bent its long neck down, a gesture more helpful to Dan than it could have realized. Its weariness was by now apparent in its eyes. For a moment it looked like a huge, haggard flamingo searing through the tropical skies above the Florida Keys trying to get revenge on a banal human population addicted to cheap, plastic lawn ornaments…

Seeing the giant worms with their long toothy snouts and sadistic eyes, he feared that he could only count on seconds to escape to land… The Eocene was devouring the Miocene. The past devouring the future. The Revenge of the Fossil Record.

Thoroughly entertaining and well-written

BWLF is a great read that sucks you in from the first page and keeps you riveted all the way through. This is storytelling at its finest, with a twisting, multi-faceted plot. The characters are complex and well- developed. It's hard to pigeon-hole the genre of this novel, as it has all the elements of thriller, science fiction, political machinations and legend blended together in a thoroughly entertaining read. I highly recommend BWLF to anyone who enjoys a gripping story that is well-written. It's hard to put this one down.

BWLF is the Bomb!

In all honesty, I do not read political thrillers, I do not like 'shape-shifter' otherworldly stories, and I don't believe in reincarnation.

That said, I was intrigued with BLWF, and found myself turning pages faster and faster, wanting to find out not only 'whodunit,' but how and why! The characters were so well developed that I actually cared for them and worried for them (well, some of them!) The dialogue was real, the conversations were believable, and the topics themselves were thought-provoking. Through it all, author Nils was able to create suspense and tension, keeping me glued to my chair, a notable skill.

Most important, any work that not only tells a story but gets me thinking and questioning the possibilities is quite an accomplishment, and BWLF did just that. I may not have agreed with everything that was put forth in BWLF, but I was willing to consider - and that is the biggest compliment I can give to any writer.

"BWLF" by Denis Nils (Drogseth), Trapdoor Books,... is an ambitious first novel that mixes up Norse legends, paleontology, and modern politics with a bit of southern romance thrown in for good stead, chews off a whole mess of a story and digests most... just summoning this world, and what might happen should real heroism enter into it, makes for some fascinating effects... we expect to see more of Dennis Nils.

An adventure story with intellect!

I enjoyed this book... Couldn't put it down, wondering what would happen next. It's both action-packed and thoughtful -- an entertaining combination. I appreciate that the author delved into the characters' emotions and motivations making them immediately real and familiar, vulnerable and human. And the storyline is laced with interesting factoids, making it informative and clever as well as entertaining.

This book is a great romp -- and works well for reading on trips and short spells due to the crafty weaving of the characters' stories. It moved fast and kept my attention thoroughly... and sparked my brain cells.

I hope there are sequels.

...The monsters in 'BWLF' can be seen as metaphors for the personal demons we all face, or the corrupting influences that stalk politicians... the book makes for a highly entertaining read and raises some interesting philosophical questions.

An Unexpected Gem

There can't be many novelists who can draw from epic Norse mythic poetry to concoct a modern-day murder mystery complete with the drama of big-time state and national politics. BWLF is a wildly creative and superbly crafted that rewards the mind's eye with vivid imagery and colorful characters.

My only qualm…

The basic storyline of this book was good. It has a political basis, that I normally wouldn't read, plus an otherworldly back-story involving ancient monsters and such. There were times that the book seemed to be in such extreme detail that it gave me the impression the publisher said the book was too short and the author had to go back and fill in more just to meet a quota, but that was my only really qualm with the book. Even with that, I will still consider reading the next in the series in the future.
