|Jurassic Park Adventures: Survivor|
Jurassic Park Adventures: Survivor, is the first installment in the Jurassic Park Adventures, and is a prequel to Jurassic Park III. This book revolves around young Eric Kirby, and reveals a little more about the character.
In Survivor, we learn that going to Isla Sorna in a parasailing trip was Ben Hildebrand's idea, in an attempt to please Eric, who is obsessed with dinosaurs. Unfortunately, an unseen creature kills the boat's operators and Eric and Ben crash onto the island's jungle. Ben suffers internal injury and dies, and Eric has to survive by himself in the island, using only his intelligence and knowledge as weapons. During his stay on the island, Eric discovers several things; for example, that Isla Sorna had once been inhabited by a small number of humans who had left after the island was bought. Also, that the island's native wildlife, including sloths, rats and snakes, still survive despite the introduction of dinosaurs. He even "befriends" a young Iguanodon, whom he nicknames "Iggy ". During most of the book, Eric focuses his energies on finding a way to communicate with the outer world, so that they will not think he's dead and send someone to rescue him. However, he eventually sacrifices his only hope to do this in order to save Iggy's life from a pack of vicious raptors. Survivor doesn't cover the entire eight week period Eric was stranded in the island; the last part of the book skips to the moment in which Eric hears a pack of raptors chasing some humans (just moments before he saves Alan Grant as seen in Jurassic Park III). This is the only Jurassic Park Adventures book that's written in the first person (Eric tells the whole story).
