This riveting alt history reimagines the 1815 Battle of Waterloo as something other than a crushing defeat for the French emperor Napoleon Bonaparte, when he unleashes a terrible secret weapon--giant carnivorous survivors from pre-history--on his unsuspecting British and Prussian adversaries. In this world, smaller "saurs" are an everyday danger in the forests of Europe, and the Americas are a forbidden zone roamed by the largest and most deadly animals ever to walk the earth. But in his quest for power, Napoleon has found a way to turn these giant dinosaurs into nineteenth-century weapons of mass destruction. Only Willem Verheyen, an outsider living in hiding in the tiny village of Gaillemarde, has the power to ruin the tyrant's plans. And Napoleon will stop at nothing to find him.War is coming, and young Willem is no longer safe, for Gaillemarde is just a stone's throw from the fields of Waterloo--fields which will soon run red with blood.
