Summary from Goodreads: Primeval Origins: Paths of Anguish (2nd Edition) - Book #1 in this epic story revealing mankind's undiscovered history and ancient origins bringing rise the legendary Four Horsemen. Join Nikki, a paleo-archeological graduate student suffering life altering happenings turning her life upside-down and sending her on the run from forces unknown as she learns of and experiences our undiscovered and hidden history. A history filled with terrible tyrannies, deadly dinosaurs, brutal beasts, ancient gods, and heroic hearts as the origins of our End Times is revealed, answering the question, "What if all of our myths and legends are true?"

Review: This book was a twist of interesting flavors. I have to admit, I didn't really understand the beginning part and thought to story could have done without it. A current time archaeology dig that unearths some interestingly substantially historical evidence that could change everything we knew about the past. The we change settings and we are in the past, where dinosaurs are a real threat to the human population. I really enjoyed the second story line where are two young companions are doing their best to bring honor to their families, but of course there is always that one asshole who makes trouble for them. I also imagined that this old world is the stinkiest thing ever. The main character is always scrunching his nose or describing how smelly his surroundings are. I thought it was cute though. Maybe he has a nose like I do, that smells everything and that's all he can think about, lol.

This was a fun read that was quick. Took me an afternoon to get through. Four stars for Paths of Anguish and five stars for the vivid smells I imagined.    

Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.
