Publisher's Summary

The Philippine Sea Plate is 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 is inhabited by nightmarish species of sea creatures long believed extinct.

Tanaka Institute, Monterey, CA: Angel, the recaptured 76-foot, 100,000-pound Megalodon, has birthed a litter 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.

Underwater adventure with giant dinosaurs.

This one introduces huge new beasts of the deep and they are amazing. The amount of research that had to have gone into this story is very exciting. Alten's book are always adventurous and well paced. Highly recommend.

good story

The continuation of The Meg series was a good installment. My wife and I were hoping for a more complex human antagonist and such a stereotypical two dimensional character was a little disappointing. Enjoyed the story arc involving David and his girlfriend.

Good continuation of the storyline.

Great continuation of the storyline. New characters are developed well and tied in with the continuing storyline. New prehistoric creatures keeps the story from being repetitive. Good read.

Mindless listening

Fun, especially as the readers 'voices' are a little all over the place, especially Mac's.

good story!

I enjoyed the story but the narration at times seemed rushed and almost bored! plus every voice sounded pretty much the same! But still - good story, worth a listen!

Great book

This is, as always with the 'meg' series a great book, maybe the story jumps locations back and forth a bit much, but that does not detract from a fascinating story.

If you enjoy the other books in the 'meg' series you won't be disappointed Steve Alten has conjured up another deep sea nightmare.

I am seriously happy that 'The Loch' and 'Vostok' have been released as these will nicely join a few of the Meg books and characters together.

Thank you, please release the rest of the Meg Series soon!!!!!
