Short Title SMILODON. Publisher Createspace Independent Publishing Platform. James is now living in Florida, with his wife, Penny, enjoying the sun & rain and working on his next novel.

Tigers in the wild and a lucrative fee lure freelance writer Zechariah Price into the frozen mountains of Montana. The assignment drops him into a world of Bengal tigers, illegal aliens, prehistoric sabertooth cats, and psychic premonitions. As the possibility of death by man and animal surrounds him, he quickly learns that he too is destined to become food for the cats. Trapped between man and beast, his assignment turns into that of survival.

Smilodon intertwines the exciting possibility and nightmarish reality of cloning in an age in which advanced genetic engineering is rapidly evolving. "Consider the very real possibility of cloning your recently deceased pet," says the author. "We are on the brink of just such a thing. If after your pet, what about your child, or an entire genetically engineered perfect society?" Smilodon will send one back to thinking, "What if?"

Zechariah Price is a man in the midst of an identity crisis when he's offered the opportunity to write a book about a secret science experiment in the mountains of Montana. He accepts it (along with the large advance) and allows them to transport him to their isolated compound. There he finds not just scientists experimenting with saber toothed cats, but secrets layered upon secrets, hidden rooms, subterfuge, and mysterious murders (or are they accidents?). Zechariah faces multiple dilemmas and not all of them related to the large prehistoric cats prowling the grounds of the compound. He must answer a lot of questions about his own character, who he is and what he really wants, but the biggest question he faces is the question of his own survival.

A thoroughly enjoyable read--well paced with plenty of tension and excitement. The writing is invisible--meaning that it gets out of the way and allows the reader to submerge themselves in the tale. I'm very much looking forward to reading the rest of the series.

This story was a little slow getting into, but well worth it.
Paddock has good, flowing style, a true feel for human behaviour, and a vivid imagination.
I loved the descriptions of the Smilodons; for me, he brought them back to life.
Paddock took me right there with his character as he struggled with his computer, the weather, the danger.
His science is right on; he's done his research.
This is a good story, well written, by a writer who knows his stuff.
I highly recommend this for lovers of SciFi, and Paranormal Fiction.
And anyone else who just loves a good read.
This is the first of a trilogy, and I look forward to reading the rest.

If I could give it four and a half I would. The only thing that stopped me giving this 5 stars was some strange plot twists that I personally found unlikely, but hey… you might disagree with me! The use of tigers as surrogate mothers for the Smilodon (Sabre Toothed Cats) is believable. Certainly a book worth the read and I've gone on to read the 2nd book in the series. Let's hope it's as good.

A really good storyteller has the ability to bring us along gently, at first with easy to accept ideas and images, and then with concepts and images that begin to stretch our imaginations, tweak our worldview. Before long we find ourselves believing the unbelievable. James Paddock has that ability. Cloning saber-toothed cats from tar pit DNA is probably not going to happen, but before long Paddock just might have you believing it's possible and maybe even going on right now. You'll find yourself concerned about the individual cats. When you are not actually reading you'll be thinking about Zechariah and his wife, and the other woman, or who will be the next victim of the cats?

Paddock will mess with your life. You wil be reading when you had really planned to do something else.

And beware, this is only the first of the Smilodon Trilogy and you are going to want to read the other two.

Who doesn't love a good story-teller? 5 stars !!!

A struggling freelance journalist is hired to write up the story of a secret project in a Montana compound. What he discovers is a DNA lab that has brought sabre-toothed cats back from extinction, but this is only the tip of a secret corporate project with severe ethical implications. This story is tense and definitely not for the squeamish and faint-hearted in some sections, but it definitely kept me enthralled.

I just loved this book. It starts out nice and easy and leads the reader right into a heart pounding mystery. As the suspense builds you must ask yourself who Zach, the main character, should fear the most; the sabretooth cats or the humans who created them.
This is the second book I have read by this author and I look forward to reading more of his work in the future!

I found this to be a good book. It has lots of information without being too technical. The concept of unleashing saber-toothed cats on the modern world is frightening. It's as scary as Jurassic Park with even fewer controls. I look forward to the next book in the series.
I found the book to be well worth the purchase. It started out mellow, with a nice even pace. I didn't spend two chapters being confused without enough detail about time, place and character. And then it picked up, webs of intrigue within boxes of puzzles, and it only got better from there. I was up late on a work night reading the end, and I never do that. If you are going to load a book on your Kindle for a solid read during your morning train commute, THIS IS THAT BOOK! Bring on the rest of the series!
I was a little confused about a negative review I read on here, mainly because it seemed SO angry. After reading, I can only assume that the guy was either a bad writer who smacks everyones work but his own, or just one of those internet haters that loves to trash.
Either way, you be the judge, get the book, and enjoy, I know I did.
