Pangea: Eden's Planet by Tom Johnson

    This book absolutely surprised me. I was thinking it was going to be your run of the mill, done a million times, sci-fi space exploration...but boy was I wrong. This book was very original, well written, and thoroughly researched. The characters were a perfect blend of different personalities, all having "quirks" to make them relate-able to the reader. Each individual was picked for their different skills to help on this mission, and they were all perfect in the role they played. I was eagerly turning the pages to learn what "new" findings greeted the group each day of exploration. The detail the author put into these prehistoric findings was exceptional and articulate. The interactions between the characters, had me laughing out loud at times, and certain situations left me broken hearted.  By time I made it to the end of the book, I was hoping that it was going to lead into another to be released in the future. Tom didn't actually say it wasn't, but I was very pleased that he gave me closure and insight as to what happened in the following years for the characters.

Pulp adventure returns to science fiction in “Pangaea: Eden’s Planet”.
Seven astronauts en route to Mars encounter a time warp in space that disables their ship. Crash landing on Earth, they discover an alien planet sixty million years before the dinosaurs. Pangaea, the super continent, is filled with danger and terror, as they must survive against fierce reptiles that ruled the Earth 250 million years in the past! 


"That looks like Earth," she said. "We are being pulled back to Earth by its magnetic field!"
"Look at it closer, Colonel," Carl Plymouth told her. "It may look like Earth, but ..."
"The continents don't look right, Sir," Captain Mercer said. 
"I don't see any continents, Captain," Major Cooper said. "I only see one continent - a big one!"
"Did that thing - whatever it was - warp our speed to another solar system?" Sheri asked. 
"Let's wait to for Carl's analysis, Sheri," Major Cooper told her.
