“Alten writes the books with such enthusiasm that he sweeps us up and carries us along…A nice mix of horror, thriller and adventure.” —Booklist June 2016
The New York Times blockbuster series MEG by Steve Alten continues with the 5th installment of the series, MEG 5: NIGHTSTALKERS (Tor hardcover, $25.99, June 14, 2016). MEG, currently in production at Warner Brothers with Jason Statham as the lead character Jonas Taylor, is set for an early 2018 worldwide release.
MEG 5: NIGHTSTALKERS picks up where MEG: Hell’s Aquarium leaves 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, menacing the local ecosystem and tourism industry. While Jonas Taylor and his friend Mac attempt to either recapture or kill the sisters, Jonas’s son, David embarks on a quest to revenge his lost love. Having witnessed his girlfriend’s gruesome death at the hands of the 120-foot hundred-ton rogue Liopleurodon that escaped the Panthalassa Sea, David has joined a Dubai Prince’s ocean expedition in the hopes of killing the monster. 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 together threads of greed, grief, terror and near environmental collapse in this page-turning installment of the bestselling MEG series. Culminating in a final showdown between the most dangerous predators ever to inhabit the planet, MEG 5: NIGHTSTALKERS will have you on the edge of your seat.
