Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The most fearsome predators in history…are no longer history.

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

Tanaka Institute, Monterey, CA:  Four years have passed since Angel, the 76-foot, 100,000 pound Megalodon, birthed a litter of pups far too numerous and aggressive to keep in one pen.  Fortunately, a Dubai royal prince who is building the largest aquarium in the world seeks to purchase two of the “runts”—if Jonas Taylors twenty-one year-old son, David, will be their handler.  Jonas reluctantly agrees, and David is off to Dubai for the summer of his life, not realizing that he is being set up to lead an expedition that will hunt down and capture the most dangerous creatures ever to inhabit the Earth!

Synopsis:

Carcharodon megalodon - apex predator of all time, the most fearsome creature that ever lived - a 70-foot, 60,000 pound Great White Shark. Hundreds of 7-inch serrated teeth filled jaws that could swallow an elephant whole. It could sense its prey miles away, inhaling its scent as it registered the beat of its fluttering heart, and if you ever came close enough to see the monster . . . it was already too late. For Navy deep-sea submersible pilot Jonas Taylor, it nearly was too late. Years ago, on a top-secret dive seven miles down into the Mariana Trench, Jonas came face to face with an ancient monster everyone believed extinct. Having barely escaped with his life, Jonas must prove to the world that Meg still exists. When an opportunity to return to the trench presents itself, he takes it, intent on returning topside with a 7-inch white tooth But man's presence in this unexplored domain releases one of the sharks from its purgatory, and now Jonas is the only one who can stop it.

Synopsis:

From a "New York Times" and "USA Today"-bestselling author comes the fourth book in the Meg series, available in a tall Premium Edition.
