In this fifth installment of the New York Times best-selling Meg series, Meg: Nightstalkers picks up where Meg: Hell's Aquarium left off.
Bela and Lizzy, the dominant megalodon siblings from Angel's brood, have escaped the Tanaka Institute to roam the Salish Sea in British Columbia. While Jonas Taylor and his friend Mac attempt to either recapture or kill the "sisters," Jonas' son, David, embarks on his own adventure, motivated by revenge.
Having witnessed his girlfriend's gruesome death, David has joined a Dubai prince's ocean expedition, tracking the 120-foot, hundred-ton Liopleurodon that escaped from the Panthalassa Sea. Haunted by night terrors, David repeatedly risks his life to lure the Lio and other prehistoric sea creatures into the fleet's nets, all while battling his own suicidal demons.
Steve Alten weaves these storylines together in a thriller that culminates in a final showdown between the most dangerous predators ever to inhabit the planet.

Yes, conditionally. The problem with long running series is that there is build up of backstory that tends to put people off. If the reader has been following the series, it was very good and recommended as the next step in the story path. As a starting point - it could be confusing.
The time in the underground sea and its assorted lifeforms
Jonas Taylor...the man has more lives than a cat. And the stories he could tell.
If you have followed the series - absolutely go for it. New readers - Start with book 1: MEG
Have you ever eaten a small bowl of ice cream? Then gone back for second, only to realize that halfway through the second bowl that you've got too much? This book is that
I love books
This has to be one of my favorites from Steve Alten he continues to deliver us the fans something special. Can't wait to see what he gives us in Generations.. His next and maybe his last in the Meg Series.
I have no words for how desperately I wanted to love this book. I've been a faithful fan for probably twenty years but unfortunately Night Stalkers is a convoluted mess. Too many characters, subplots and far too much time without prehistoric sharks. And don't get me started about space time continuum / butterfly effect. I only stuck with this book because I've been reading the series from day one.
"Superb, one small problem"
This is a fantastic addition to the Meg Series, the story is extremely well written as you would expect from Steve Alten. The only draw back to this audiobook is the fact that the rest of the Meg series is not available on audiobook here, also the inclusion of Vostok and the Loch would also be a great addition as it would tie in characters from Nightstalkers. Well worth the investment A+++
The Meg Series, Jaws etc
The original Meg, is being made into a film, just hope it stays true to the book
