New York Times bestselling author Steve Alten's Meg: Hell's Aquarium continues his thrilling action adventure series--the basis for the feature film The Meg, starring Jason Statham as Jonas Taylor.

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 Taylor's 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!

This edition of the book is the deluxe, tall rack mass market paperback.

Our customer reviews

Jonas Taylor returns in the next action-packed thriller in Steve Alten's acclaimed MEG series. This chapter tells of the discovery of a lost sea filled with prehistoric species long thought extinct in an area of deep sea off the Phillippine coast. The story focuses primarily on Jonas' son, David, as he is hired to pilot deep sea submersibles for the Dubai royal family in a high risk, high stakes mission. While old characters make their expected return in this addition to the series, the focus on the younger David potentially sets the scene for the future of the MEG series. Although the science sees a many liberties and the action is very Hollywood, Alten's descriptive prose and ambitious tale instill a sense of adventure in the reader and are a welcome familiarity to this release. If you're a MEG fan or simply enjoy light hearted science fiction then this is an interesting more
