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.

Wanted to love this book so so bad

Well I listened to the whole story and the one before it . Let me say the 1st 2 books are really good and can be listened to multiple times and you can still enjoy them. Not so much in my opinion with the 3rd and now the 4th books. I returned book 3 as it was , well lacking something that the 1st 2 has . 3 seemed like MR Alten was depressed and the story was depressing. ( book 4 this book) well it starts off alright and it’s exciting new monsters from the deep , a new place besides the Mariana Trench all cool then it becomes predictable and I hate that Mac is a drunk in the last 2 books I thought that they killed off angel too easily, I new David’s girlfriend was going to be killed about 40 minuets before it happened (I don’t know how I just did) and I guess I was hoping this book would redeem book 3 , with the movie finally coming out I was giddy it has been around a year since I listened to book 3 and I think 4 is better than 3 but probably not worth my monthly credit as I prefer books I will listen to multiple times. As of writing this review I am undecided as to weather I am going to return this book or not.

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!!!!!
