    A team of marine scientists is on the verge of making the most stunning discovery in the history of man: a previously unknown predatory species, alive now, evolving just like the dinosaurs, and being forced out of its world and into man's for a violent first encounter.

    Overall

    Although the story is mildly entertaining, I couldn't get past the fact that this is the worst researched book I have ever read. The technical errors are just too glaring to be overlooked. To mention a few:
    - As already mentioned, there are no penquins in the arctic, and penguins and polar bears do not coexist anywhere in the world.
    - One does not suddenly find oneself out of air at 180 feet deep and just pop up to the surface. Decompression from 180 feet would usually require several spare air tanks.
    - True, most fish have a swim bladder, but no cartilaginous fish, and therefore no rays, have one.
    These are just a few that stuck out in my mind. I can't help but wonder how this stuff gets published.
