Product Description

Product Description

Time snakes between alternate universes. Ever watchful, an alien intelligence survives on Mars, waiting to be found by spacefarers from Earth. The alien’s ultimate goal is to send human astronauts back in time, where they will alter the past and thwart the extinction of the dinosaurs. A race of intelligent dinosaurs, resembling the alien’s extinct species, subsequently evolves to rule the world. But a human female astronaut, through a strange twist of fate, survives the change in the space-time continuum. After finding herself in a dinosaurian body, she must race against time – and the formidable alien – to restore the universe to its rightful course.

Dragon Dawn takes the intriguing plot device of time travel and uses cutting edge science to produce a new spin on the evolution of intelligence. The subject matter blends fields of study the author, Deborah O’Neill Cordes, loves in equal measure; she holds a bachelor’s degree in zoology and a master’s degree in history. She offers her readers a window into exotic worlds: lushly beautiful, often terrifying – and wholly compelling.

About the Author

Deborah O’Neill Cordes is a screenwriter and novelist of speculative and historical fiction. She earned a bachelor’s degree in zoology, magna cum laude, from Northern Arizona University. Just three credits shy of a double major in zoology and history, she decided to graduate on time and pursue history as a vocation by getting a master’s degree with thesis, also from NAU. After teaching secondary school for fourteen years, she turned to writing full-time. She is also a dedicated genealogist; the Dragon Dawn heroine and hero’s surnames – Stroganoff and Granberg – having been the last names of two of her ancestral lineages. In addition to Dragon Dawn, Deborah is the co-author of the Morgan O’Neill time travel novels, which she writes with Cary Morgan Frates. Several of Deborah’s works have been optioned by Hollywood, while many others are award winners, garnering finalist placements in the Pacific Northwest Writers’ Conference Literary Contest, semi-finalist wins in the William Faulkner – William Wisdom Creative Writing Competition, and the Metro Goldwyn Mayer finalist award in the Seattle International Film Festival’s Perfect Pitch Forum. She resides in the Pacific Northwest with her husband and two West Highland White Terriers, who, alas, are precocious terriers and therefore never white.

Incredibly well-written, with a captivating plot that is not only thought-provoking, but interesting as well. The author kept my attention the entire way through, to the point where I was nearly skipping pages in my attempt to just ... find out.

The amount of research that went into this story is also amazing. The cover is beautiful.

And frankly, I want a copy of the paperback version, too, so then I can have it in my library.

I'm on edge waiting for the next in this series.

A powerful and malevolent reptilian being, The Keeper, awaits his reawakening to change the course of history. His aim is to change the course of history to enable the evolution of a race of intelligent dinosaurian creatures over whom he will rule.

A beautiful, cloned dinosaurian female, Dawann Dracon, has been created as the consort of the Keeper, who rules the planet Moozrabian (the old Mars). However, she has been implanted with the soul of a human, Dawn, and Dawn’s memories start to return to her. She is now compelled to risk death by attempting to regain her memories as a human and find the only secretly cloned human still in existence.Dawann/Dawn’s journey takes her back through time, to the Cretaceous period before a massive comet collides with Earth bringing an end to the age of the dinosaurs and threatening the lives of Dawn and her fellow astronauts, stranded on Earth at the time.

I cannot begin to give a simple précis of this novel. It is so complex, fascinating and incredibly well researched, the story had me riveted from the first page to the last. In my opinion it takes a brilliant mind to create a story of this magnitude. I am in awe of this author’s ability to present science fiction bolstered by robust facts, vivid characters and superbly intricate plots. Deborah O’Neil Cordes takes the reader into two completely different worlds – a cretacean world of lush, green vegetation and dangerous, predatory creatures, and a future world of manufactured climates and cloned inhabitants – both equally believable. Even the fictional dracons with their pale green skin, feathered heads and golden eyes are presented in such rich detail, their images are graphically implanted on my mind.

I am an avid and eclectic reader, reading up to four books a week – not many books remain vividly in my mind unless they are exceptional. This book is just that.

I started this book with an avid curiosity and was rewarded each step of the way. Dragon Dawn is a fascinating romp through the future and the past. The idea of sentient dinosaurs intrigued me and I wasn't disappointed. The material was well researched, the science intriguing, leaving you with that "what if" feeling all sci-fi writers hope to create in their readers. I look forward to the next book in the series. If you like something just a bit different, this book is for you.

HASH(0x995e5d80) out of 5 stars Layers of fun Feb. 22 2014
By Amy Dunn Caldwell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
In Dragon Dawn, the author does a fine job of mixing past and future, creating an intriguing story of science fiction. She supposes a race of sentient dinosaurs who are controlled by an alien Keeper. The Keeper's consort, Dawann, is a cloned female who possesses the soul, and increasingly the memories, of a human woman, Dawn. Their stories are interwoven to create a plot that picks up speed as it moves along. Dragon Dawn contains strong worldbuilding with lots of juicy scientific detail tweaked just enough to make it fresh, along with a touch of romance, and it's a solid foundation for a series.

I was given a review copy by the author in return for an honest review.

HASH(0x995e5fc0) out of 5 stars Fascinating Time Travel Story March 18 2014
By peggy bird - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I was never been much of a big sci-fi fan unless Jean-Luc Picard was involved until Deborah O'Neill Cordes and her other persona Morgan O'Neill turned me into a time traveling sci-fi fan. This book is one of the reasons. The world created here, where dinosaurs survive to create a civilization and humans travel to Mars and both species move back and forth in time is well researched, beautifully written and fascinating to read. It's a must read for sci-fi fans as well as for readers like me who might pass it up but shouldn't.

HASH(0x995f1054) out of 5 stars Original, complex, and thoroughly amazing June 20 2014
By Juli Page Morgan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
It's no mean feat to make time travel believable. Until now, only Diana Gabaldon's books made me not only believe it, but wish I could do it. After reading Dragon Dawn I now add Deborah O'Neill Cordes' name next to Ms. Gabaldon's! The depth of detail in this book is what brings the story to life. The author's vast knowledge of the Cretaceous period is woven so skillfully throughout the book, making the adventures of the crew of the Destiny vivid and real. No less vivid are the descriptions of Mars, and I particularly enjoyed the parts of the book dealing with the lives of the Saurians on that planet. Dawann-dracon is such an intriguing character, and I loved seeing her growth as she realized what she was ... and had been ... and would be! And speaking of intriguing characters, The Keeper is one that will stay with you long after you've put the book down. I'm really looking forward to finding out more about him as this series continues. Highly recommended!
