I don't think the horns could grow back, much of it was bone and growing bones back is just ridiculous.

Having said that, bone regeneration/healing does occur on a small scale but growing back large amounts of bone like that completely is not realistic.

Book 2
Part 1

After his experiences by the lake Tyranna sought refuge:

Night fell casting the forest into darkness, as Tyranna settled, but it was brief.
A meteor, like a large glowing orb, rose above the horizon. Casting an eary siver glow throughout the mist shrouded woodland, and the ground began to tremble.
Startled Tyranna got to his feet as a deep rumbling began, increasing to a tremendous resonance.
The forest suddenly sprang into life. All around him the alarm calls of animals and the loud flurry and screeching of disturbed birds filled the air.
The rumbling increased as the earth heaved and shook even more, and Tyranna began to run.

Eventually he crashed through the undergrowth into a vast swampy clearing filled with traumatized animals.
Wallowing at the centre was as a pair of massive Nemegtosaurus. As the earth shook again, one of these gargantuans fell heavily on its side, creating a massive wave of mud, water and debris. A screeching pack of Dromaeosaurus, their neck feathers standing erect in alarm, were covered in the thick black deluge.
Troodons in terror, scurrying in all directions, splashed in and out of the water, smashing blindly into bushes, and each other.

Tyranna stumbled as the ground quaked beneath him, and fell into a shallow pool of black water.
His body covered in clinging algae and dripping mud, he struggled to regain his feet.
In the same moment an anklyosaurus, its massive broad head lowered, sporting short stuby horns, blundered, full speed, directly towards him.

With only centimeters to spare Tyranna slipped and slithered to one side as the panic stricken beast thundered passed, splashing through the black shallow pool, and on into the forest.
The world trembled once more, in an enveloping thunderous roar, as the ground began to rip apart. The creek and groan of splittering wood resounded loudly in the air, as trees became uprooted and crashed to earth, scattering shattered branches and mangling bodies.

Tyranna stood bewildered, as suddenly the clamour and tremors ceased, bringing an instant eerie stillness to the world.
Now the air was filled with the cries and hoots of frightened confused animals, some running, some thrashing and drowning in the swamps thick black mud.
Overhead the sky, reddened by the devastation of the meteor strike, was filled with screeching Pterasaurs.

Suddenly a powerful wind, driving heavy black clouds, dust and debris, swept into the clearing.
Tyranna roared a defiance at the chaos, as he turned and headed into the forest, leaping fallen trees he ran...
Eventually, exhausted, he stopped.

Now the forest was still, silent and dark, filled only with the pounding of his beating heart.
Raising his head he caught a familiar scent. His family group where somewhere near by. Gaining confidence he followed its direction, what he needed most was the soothing tones and touch of his parent.

Part 2 Tyranna Vs two Velociraptors.

Tyranna passed in and out of the shadows of a silent, deserted forest, recently aflame, then doused by flood waters.
Many spirals of smoke from smouldering tree stumps and blackened undergrowth gathered in a blue haze of early dawn amongst the overhead branches.
Tyranna's feet were soot covered as he came to a broad fast flowing stream. Glistening swarms of dancing buzzing insects, caught in opaque columns from the first sun beams, speckled the rippling water.
He sniffed at the air to check his scent trail then lowered his head and drank.

Abruptly a piercing screech rent the tranquil forest, followed by another.
Tyranna stood erect his senses alerted, and padded down stream towards the sound. The scent of his family group gaining in strength.
He paused, and sniffed the air once more, now the familiar scent was mingled with the scent of an unmistakable enemy.
Amid the sound of a plunging waterfall another screech rang out as he cautiously moved through dense chard bushes.
Peering through the leaves he saw two of his younger siblings.
They stood, backed by a rainbow coloured haze of rising vapour, at the very edge of the falls, trapped by three hissing velociraptors.

The Velociraptors were positioned two on the left bank, and one on the right.
It was a stand off.
The stream here was shallow but too rapid flowing for the meter high predators. Who screeched and feigned attacks from the banks, taunting their victims.
Tyranna's two siblings stood on a large flat rock teetering on the edge of the falls. The water, glittering silver in the glaring sun, foamed around them. Before cascading in a continuous dull rumble out of sight.

The attacker on the right bank, could contain his fervour no longer. Edged in long black feathers, tipped in flaming red and yellow, he spread his forearms, flashing sharp curved claws.
With both feet forward, armed with sickle shaped weapons, he launched himself into the air, screeching loudly, in a terrifying display.
The baby T.Rex he had aimed for lashed out with her tail at the creatures awesome gaping jaws.
It was well timed, and struck the creatures head in mid air. The animal cried out in pain, the blow sending him off course.
Screeching and writhing in mid air, he plumeted, over the falls, disappearing into the misty shroud.

Tyranna, now nearly two meters tall, stepped into the open to face the two remaining Velociraptors, and gave out a maturing roar of warning.

Both creatures turned immediately and displayed. Screeching and shaking their feathers in warning.
Tyranna, undaunted, advanced quickly towards them. The pair split up, and flanking the on coming predator, launched themselves in unison from both sides.

part 3

Tyranna veered to the right to swing his tail, and caught the left attacker in mid air, smashing it to the ground. It fell heavily in a crumpled heap never to rise.
But as he turned, the second assailant landed onto the side of his head. Forearm claws grasping his tender snout, and clinging to the boney ridge above the left eye. One of its long sickle leg claws sunk into his neck, and the other penetrated his shoulder.

Tyranna roared in agony and blundered into the stream. With the force of the current and the loose stone bed he slipped, and blood stained water sprayed around as he tumbled.
The Velociraptor had no time to increase its advantage as it found itself submerged, with Tyranna's weight holding it down, in panic it fought to get free. As Tyranna rolled, the current carried his gurgling, struggling assailant down stream.
Rolling and tumbling it smacked against the rock that the two young T.Rex's were standing upon, and the power of the water pushed it quickly around and over the edge of the white foaming falls.

Tyranna fought to regain his feet, blood now pouring thickly, he stumbled blindly. Disorientated he staggered under the pull of the stream following the fate of his attacker.

Tyranna's siblings, seeing their chance, scrambled to the bank. The sound of their alarmed tones, echoing into Tyranna's ears. He struggled to remain still, fighting the pull of the current, with the pain searing through his weakening body.
Again the youngsters cried out, Tyranna's instincts beginning to focus upon their familiar sounds.
Blood poured from his damaged left eye and torn snout, and pumped from the wound in his neck, and shoulder.
With failing effort he tossed his head and thrashed his tail into the stream, the loss of blood taking its toll.
Eventually he caught the shadow of his siblings, and smelling their familiar scent, and listening to their alarm calls, stumbled towards them.
He felt the relief of firm footing as he reached the bank, but as he sank slowly to the ground exhausted, everything faded around him.

As his siblings gathered around him, they felt the gust of chilled air, and heard a dull thud, and soft padding. They turned to see a large Pterosaur folding in its wings and advancing upon them. Three more landed behind in quick succession and still more were homing in.
Once again they cried out in alarm but their calls were joined by the answering screeching chorus of the increasing scavengers.
The youngster berated the interlopers, stomping their feet and bobbing their heads up and down, calling and growling loudly, in a fierce dance of defense.
The attackers paused momentarily, silently tilting their long beaked heads in curiosity, and clacking tongues.

We see this depiction of three conflicts through the eyes of an 18 month old T. Rex called Tyranna, who is seperated from his pack following an earth quake.
Part one: Quetzalcoatlus Vs Troodon.
Tyranna found himself alone on the beach of a great lake. The Earth tremors had ceased and the familiar sounds of the surrounding forest filled the air. Thirsty he took a drink from the cool softly lapping waters. Then crossing the narrow beach he settled in the shade, at the foot of an enormous tree. Its huge dark trunk topped by fern-like branches reaching thirty meters into the deep blue sky.
The gentle hum of insects, and cool breeze from the lake calmed him for a while, as he took in the panorama.
To his left a small group of ponderous Maiasaura, three meters high, wandered across the sand to slake their thirst. Even the infants were too large a prey for Tyranna.
As he watched, something blinked out the sun, and cocking his head to one side a huge Quetzalcoatlus plummeted down to glide swiftly across the water towards him. Its gaping beak scooping a wriggling fish, before it came to rest at the waters edge, not ten meters from his resting place.
Tyranna surveyed the creature devouring its meal, this also was too large for his limited predatory skills just yet.
Suddenly not three meters away a Troodon stepped into his vision, which eyed him inquisitively. Only sixty centimeters high it was a likely victim, and Tyranna's muscles tightened in responce to his intentions.
As Tyranna stole himself for an attack, another Troodon appeared, then another... And still another.
In moments there were eight or ten of them, bobbing their heads snorting snd sniffing. Their long tails swirling, and their three clawed fingers flexing in sharp grasping motions.
As Tyranna took another step from out of the shadows, the Troodons fell back. But as even more appeared, swelling their numbers, they came on again, threateningly.
Tyranna raised his head and gave out a youthful roar. The Troodons hesitated, it was a stand off.
From the waters edge came the Quetzalcoatlus, accompanied by two infants. While another adult, as large as the first, glided in. Folding its twelve meter wings it landed and came at a run.
The Troodons scattered, revealing a cluster of tiny squeeking babies.
In a heartbeat the two infant pterasaurs attacked the babies, but the adult Troodons re-grouped and sprang forward to protect.
The adult Quetzacoatlus waded in catching in their huge beaks a Troodon. Then savagely shaking their victims from side to side, smashed into the melee, dispersing the hissing snarling adults.
The Troodons flung themselves at their attackers, clinging to their wings, and necks, grasping, and biting furiously. The Quetzalcoatlus, releasing their dead victims, grabbed for another while their young turned and fled, each gripping a baby Troodon in their blooded beaks.
Tyranna joined the fray and quickly disposed of two of the hissing Troodons before he too was attacked. Three of them leapt upon his side and neck, their claws and bites were painful, sending him into a blind fury. He lashed his tail sweeping two of them, like leaves in the wind, into the air. Kicking out with his clawed feet, he ripped fatal gashes in the bodies of some and trampled one to death.
Abruptly the Troodons vanished. Leaving the battle ground covered with gore, blood soaked bodies, and clouds of humming insects.
As the scent of death filled the air, Tyranna stood alone facing two massive Quetzalcoatlus.
You said "meter" a lot.

Part 4

The Pterosaurs stood nearly two meters tall, dwarfing the two young T.rex's, their spiked wing tips whirled even higher as they shuffled to fan out. As more came in to land behind, they gained confidence, the screeching began again, increasing to a deafening level.
The youngsters demonstrations were having no effect, as the demons showed no fear and little caution. They continued to edge forward, their dark yellow eyes staring intently at these strange excited creatures, guarding their intended victim.

As the two siblings were forced back, the prostrate Tyranna winced as the first of the scavengers began stabbing at his tail...

Suddenly......

Suddenly...

a tremendous vibrating roar exploded into the air followed by a second, drowning out the cacophony of screaming scavengers.
Two massive Tyrannosaurus Rex, appeared from out of the forest either side of the beleaguered trio.
Instantly the leading Pterosaurs scattered, along with their closest allies.

A mass chaotic exodus instantly ensued as the cackling creatures, creating a huge dust cloud, fell back in disarray.Their hysteria only heightened as a third T.Rex burst forth from the surrounding trees, and was instantly among the maelstrom of fleeing Pterosaurs. Half a dozen of the scavengers were brought down by the huge teeth filled maw, and lashing tail...

... Bloody carnage erupted as the first two T.Rex joined the melee, trampling, flailing their tails, and ripping the flesh from doomed pterosaurs.
Eventually the terror stricken scavengers that escaped the slaughter, took to the air, leaving their dead and injured comrads to their fate.

The T.Rex, covered in blood and gore, roared out their victory. Surrounded by thick clouds of buzzing insects, they were joined by others of their pack. Tearing flesh and crunching bone, they gorged on the dead and dying. While overhead, the heavy drone of a multitude of meter long dragonfly, their spectral wings rainbowed by the sun, came in league of the feast.
