I like to make a habit of posting about fan made projects and highlighting the creative talent that stems from Jurassic fans. It’s funny how, over the years, I’ve befriended many like-minded people who – aside from their love for Jurassic Park – are filmmakers, writers, creatives in their own right.
With that said, I wanted to write about Primitive War – a new novel by Ethan Pettus. Clearly inspired by Jurassic and his love for dinosaurs, Primitive War is the story of a search and rescue team known as Vulture Squad, who are sent into an isolated jungle valley to uncover the fate of a missing platoon. As they hunt through the primordial depths of the valley, they discover horrors that not only threaten to unravel their minds, but to end their lives as well.
The cover art alone is beautiful, and while the old saying states that you should never judge a book by its cover, I certainly did when I saw this one. How very Trespasser!
The artwork and concept art from the novel that Ethan shared with me show what an action packed and terrifying adventure it will be. And for those feathered dinosaur fans, this is right up your alley!
The art is beautiful and the story sounds great – but how about the writing? Check out an exclusive chapter below! Trust me, it’s pretty damn thrilling:
Primitive War will be released within the next couple of months and will be available to purchase on Amazon. Be sure to check out the Facebook page here so you can follow updates on the novel, and let Ethan know what you thought of the above chapter by commenting below!

A search and rescue team known as Vulture Squad is sent to an isolated jungle valley to uncover the fate of a missing Green Beret platoon.

When the casualties mount, the men of Vulture Squad must abandon their human nature and give in to their savage instincts in order to survive…the Primitive War.
