Publisher's Summary

The Philippine Sea Plate.... The deepest, most unexplored realm on the planet. Hidden beneath its ancient crust lies the remains of the Panthalassa, an ocean that dates back 220 million years. Vast and isolated, the Panthalassa in inhabited by nightmarish species of sea creatures long believed extinct.

Tanaka Institute, Monterey, California:

Angel, the recaptured 76 foot, 100,000 pound Megalodon, has birthed a liter of pups - five females - far too numerous and aggressive to keep in one pen. One solution: A Dubai royal prince is building the largest aquarium in the world and seeks to purchase two of the "runts."

The deal hinges on hiring Jonas Taylor's 21 year old son, David, to be their trainer. Jonas reluctantly agrees, and David is off to Dubai for the summer of his life - not realizing he is being set-up to lead an expedition that will hunt down and capture the most dangerous creatures ever to inhabit the planet!

    Story
    "Not Bad; Not Great"
    Would you try another book from Steve Alten and/or Kevin Giffin?

    Yes, but not in the Meg Series. They have taken this story as far as it can go. Mr. Alten is good on the technical and science stuff. So-so on the plotting.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Tighter plot. Less would have been more. Several multi-ton mega sharks are enough. The story did not get better by adding in a bunch more even bigger pre-historic sea monsters. The "action" scenes seemed forced and way too predictable. Some were unintentionally hilarious. I mean really. Using electric shock paddles on a half conscious 40 ton shark with 10 inch teeth and NOT expecting to be eaten? The only thing funnier was the argument with the insurance carrier about the premium increase.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    More emotion. It's not bad but pretty mechanical.
