“Meg: Nightstalkers” is the 5th book in Steve Alten's Meg series. It’s a very welcome addition to the story of Jonas Taylor. This book showcases the hunt for and battle with the prehistoric megalodon sharks that everyone believed were extinct. I've read all the book and also listed to the audiobooks for this whole series. I’ve loved every one in both forms. Jonas' adventures along with his friend Mac and Jonas' family have kept me coming back for each new book as they come out.
“Nightstalkers” continues a few months after Meg Hell's Aquarium and continues David Taylor's story along with the Megalodon sisters Lizzy and Bela escape from The Institute where they had grown up.
There were a few places that if you haven't read “The Loch” and “Vostok” you might wonder what is going on but if you have read those two books then you know who, what and where the story is going and why.
I always enjoy coming back to visit with old friends when it comes to series books and this is one of those times. I can't wait for the next book to come out so I can see where everyone has been and is going after Nightstalkers. Hands up to Steve Alten. “Meg: Nightstalkers” is a very good story and I gladly recommend this book.
In this fifth installment of the New York Times bestselling MEG series, Nighstalkers picks up where MEG: Hell's Aquarium left off. Bela and Lizzy, the dominant Megalodon siblings from Angel's brood, have escaped the Tanaka Institute to roam the Salish Sea in British Columbia. While Jonas Taylor and his friend Mac attempt to either recapture or kill the "sisters," Jonas's son, David, embarks on his own adventure, motivated by revenge. Having witnessed his girlfriend's gruesome death, David has joined a Dubai Prince's ocean expedition, tracking the 120-foot, hundred-ton Liopleurodon that escaped from the Panthalassa Sea. Haunted by night terrors, David repeatedly risks his life to lure the Lio and other prehistoric sea creatures into the fleet's nets, while battling his own suicidal demons.
Steve Alten weaves these storylines together in a page-turning thriller that culminates in a final showdown between the most dangerous predators ever to inhabit the planet.
