Meg: Hell's Aquarium

Jonas Taylor and his family now have sole ownership of the Tanaka Institute, Danielle hosts the shows of the main attraction, David is in college, and Terry is the CEO of the Institute. Things can't be better...

But they can get worse.

Angel's five offspring, all female, are trouble with a capital T. The runts of the litter, Angelica, Mary-Kate and Ashley (the Olsen names are tagged on the runts by popular vote on the Internet) would be a handful all by themselves, but the Sisters, Bela the Dark Overlord and Elizabeth the Countess of Blood, are in a category of their own. The Sisters are bigger, uncanny, intelligent, and more cunning than their siblings. The most unsettling thing about them is that they work together, an unprecedented phenominon. Megs are supposed to be solitary hunters, not tag-team partners.

All five, one and all, are scared spitless of their mother. I wonder if sharks do have spit...

None of the offspring are as utterly ruthless as their mother, Angel, now fully-grown and bad to the bone. Tragedy strikes when Angel begins to show behavior that's radically different from her behavior of the past. Even so, people still flock to see the 74-foot bio-luminescent Angel Of Death.

A pesky element in the plot is RAW, Return Animals to the Wild, an organization that makes PETA look like the Girl Scouts. These ignorant fools who to try to force the Institute into actually releasing all of the pups out to the open ocean, have no care for the disasters that could befall the earth's waters if charceradon megalodon once again rule as the apex predators of the sea.

When Jonas fields an offer from a small but very rich Arabian country to buy Mary-Kate and Ashley, the plot thickens. The Prince of the country wants the Meg pups for his new venture, a hotel/aquarium, and he also wants the Tanaka Institute's most advanced two-man deep submersibles, the Manta Rays... and David to work for him.

Jonas feels like the Prince is up to no good, but David, now 21, commits himself to escorting and training the pups, and teaching people how to pilot the new subs.

What none of them know is that they are, indeed, being manipulated. The Prince is working from plans once dreamed up by Jonas' ultimate nemesis, Michael Maren. The ghost of Maren may exact its final revenge after all.

This book is fast-paced, engaging, suspenseful, sad, exciting and terrifying all at the same time. Steve Alten has hit another home run with Hell's Aquarium.

Be careful. When you go hunting monsters, check your place on food chain first...

4.0 su 5 stelle Gore, Monstrous Predators, Conspiracies, and A New Protagonist 15 maggio 2009

"Meg: Hell's Aquarium" is Steve Alten's fourth effort in his highly engrossing "Meg" series that quickly becomes contagious reading for first time readers. Alten has developed a style that blends equal doses of well researched science (primarily ichthyology and paleontology) with tight plots featuring evil villains, strong heroes, voracious predators, and intense suspense. It is a credit to the author that readers often become perversely fascinated with his predatory "killing machines"--almost like those of us who gazed in wonder at the Sopranos week after week.

In this installment, two separate story lines converge into a nail biting finale. Angel, the giant megalodon has given birth to 5 female pups which has seriously stretched the resources of the Tanaka Institute in Monterey to keep them all safely enclosed. After several bloody accidents at the institute, several pups are sold to a Dubai prince who wishes to create a world class aquarium in Dubai as well as harboring a more sinister plan to capture and display prehistoric predators which have been discovered in a hidden sea deep below the crust of the Mariana Trench.

Jonas Taylor's son, David, apparently is the heir apparent to the Meg series now that his father is 65. David is enlisted to go to Dubai ostensibly to train pilots on the latest underwater diving devices but, unknowingly, to be used on a suicidal mission to explore the hidden sea. David falls in love with a pilot trainee, meets up with Angel's pups, becomes a pawn in an evil conspiracy, and ultimately is at the eye of the storm in a terrifying and gut gripping ending that includes battles to the death with monstrous sea creatures and a race against time for life itself.

Meg fans will love this installment which, as always, contains enough scientific information and jargon to please any sci-fi fan. Alten's tried and true formula and tight knit plotting continues to work as many of his returning characters are well fleshed and likable. His research of the oceans and their denizens, past and present, is impressive and his ability to write breath taking passages with lives in peril is extraordinary. Readers are still required to exercise some suspension of disbelief but it always occurs in such a roller coaster fashion that often it is unnoticeable until one looks back on it later. I did find David a bit bland and naïve to carry this series but perhaps that will change in book 5. The ending is definitely inconclusive enough to beg for a follow up effort.

5.0 su 5 stelle The BEST so far! 27 giugno 2009

I've got to say that this book is by far the best of the series...they just keep getting better! My partner picked up one cover and I the other...and I even purchased the kindle edition so I could read it on the plane on our recent trip.

Anyway, I've been a huge fan since Meg came out, and The Trench was my favorite, but the Meg series continues to evolve up the evolutionary ladder in HUGE LEAPS and I've got to admit that I liked this one even better!

I found myself putting the kindle down because I did not want the story to end, and this is how I can tell I'm truly enjoying a good read!

My job keeps me busy, and my partner was always a chapter or two ahead of me, and he would ask where I was in the book and I could tell he was excited to know I was about to find out something incredible...and I was not dissapointed:)

So looking forward to Meg 5, Night Stalkers!

Thank you, Steve for the many hour of pleasure from reading your awesomes stories!

I had high hopes for this novel. Hard to go wrong with giant
prehistoric shark vs humans vs. enormous (and now, gilled) reptiles.
It was enjoyable, but far from fullfiling.
Too many characters were too one dimensional----eg all bad, all stupid,
all greedy.
Too many chapters ended with silly scenes (obviously meant to
be a screen play), that a thoughtful 6th grader could see coming.

Wait for the paperback, and save your money and wait for the paperback.

Or maybe the coming sequel will be better written.
