A reader emailed today to ask if the trisalian lizards in SEVENFOLD SWORD: WARLORD were based on the triceratops dinosaur.
No, the trislians aren’t based on the triceratops dinosaur.
They actually are triceratops dinosaurs. I hope that clears that up. 🙂
I always wanted to write a fantasy novel with dinosaurs, and SEVENFOLD SWORD has given me the chance. A couple different kinds of dinosaurs have turned up so far:
Scutians = protoceratops.
Trisalians = triceratops.
Struthians = struthiomimus.
I look forward to introducing more dinosaur types into future SEVENFOLD SWORD books.
