I can recommend the Quintaglio Ascension series. I reviewed it back on one of the old Tavern sites:

The Quintaglio Ascension trilogy by Robert J Sawyer after picking up the Kobo freebie for book 1 (Far-Seer, Fossil Hunter and Foreigner). A great read. Basically, the premise is intelligent dinosaurs going through their version of the Age of Enlightenment with the added complication that they have to get off-world before the world is destroyed.​
Far-Seer riffs off Galileo​
Fossil Hunter riffs off Darwin​
Foreigner riffs off Columbus and Captain Cook​
I'd love to see more of the Quintaglios' story.​

The better half likes these, so thought it worth mentioning that 10 of the Donna Leon Brunetti novels are £0.99 in the deal of the day on
Unfortunately, unlike the Camilleris that have been recently on deals, these are jumping around in the series - #1 & #2, then #7-#14, otherwise I might have taken a punt. Mind you, I've now got up to #16 of the Camilleris, and still only read #1 so perhaps I won't.
