Publisher's Summary

On a top-secret dive into the Pacific Ocean's deepest canyon, Jonas Taylor found himself face-to-face with the largest and most ferocious predator in the history of the animal kingdom. The sole survivor of the mission, Taylor is haunted by what he's sure he saw but still can't prove exists-Carcharodon megalodon, the massive mother of the great white shark. The average prehistoric Meg weighs in at twenty tons and could tear apart a Tyrannosaurus rex in seconds.
Written off as a crackpot suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, Taylor refuses to forget the depths that nearly cost him his life.
With a PhD in paleontology under his belt, Taylor spends years theorizing, lecturing, and writing about the possibility that Meg still feeds at the deepest levels of the sea. But it takes an old friend in need to get him to return to the water, and a hotshot female submarine pilot to dare him back into a high-tech miniature sub.
Diving deeper than he ever has before, Taylor will face terror like he's never imagined, and what he finds could turn the tides bloody red until the end of time.

The Best Ocean Thriller Since Jaws!!

What did you love best about Meg: A Novel of Deep Terror with Meg: Origins?

I 'm wish I had found this series earlier. I LOVE ocean thrillers... anything shark related and this hits the mark on all 5 -star cylinders!

I love the fact that it is based on a very realistic, plausible premise with plenty of scientific realism to support the story. This makes it all the more thrilling.

The characters are well developed and also realistic. The images of MEG just pop out at you . My husband and I are both enthralled and I've ordered the rest of the series. Just wish Primal Waters was on audio!!

JAWS, to the Extreme
IT'S HEAD ALONE WAS PROBABLY AS LARGE AS A DODGE RAM PICKUP. IT'S JAWS COULD HAVE ENGULFED AND SWALLOWED A DOZEN GROWN MEN WHOLE. TEETH: RAZOR SHARP, SEVEN TO EIGHT INCHES LONG EACH POSSESSING THE SERRATED EDGES OF A STAINLESS-STEEL KNIFE. THE SPECIES DOMINATED THE OCEANS FOR TENS OF MILLIONS OF YEARS. OUR TWO SPECIES NO DOUBT SHARED THE PLANET AT THE SAME TIME. Plus more. This book is full of science facts, that make you believe that this Megalodon could still live today in the deepest parts of the ocean. Imagining the size of the this killing machine is scary enough. Besides the science, there is plenty of action, involving the swallowing of men, women, ships and helicopters.

Yes, there is also a story. Maybe not the strongest aspect of the book, but it kept my attention.

I will check back at later dates and every review I find that mentions the exact amount of times Jonas loses consciousness will get a helpful vote from me.
