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.

Written off as a crackpot suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, Taylor refuses to forget the depths that nearly cost him his life. 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. MEG is about to surface. When she does, nothing and no one is going to be safe, and Jonas must face his greatest fear once again.

Meg-nificent! 🦈

Absolutely loved this gripped from start to finish I can't wait to listen to the rest of them, sadly it seem The Trench (book 2) is missing from Audible so I'm gonna have to stop being lazy and actual read a book.

Simply Brilliant

I had this book on paperback in the early 2003, it got me hooked, and much to my delight it turned into a series.

I have been waiting extremely patiently for this to come to audible, now if we could just have The Trench, and for Meg Generations to stop being pushed back and back and back I would be really impressed.

As for this Book it’s a true modern day epic, the new jaws, and yes, the film is coming out this year, so only 5 years later than was suggested!!

I love the effort that Steve puts into the research of the different elements, from marine life, to minerals and vegetation. The characters are nicely built up, with just the right amount of action and dialogue.

I have now bought all of Steve Allen’s books on audible except 2012 as I don’t speak German.

Many thanks for a great series, and really can’t wait for Generations

Fantastical fun to listen to on holiday

I loved listening to this on holiday, it was perfect poolside listening though I will admit I was a bit nervous when snorkling !! If you loved Jaws or any sea creature thrillers then its for you.

Entertaining yarn, very well read

Highly enjoyable, though over the top story. Not life changing in any way, but a good way to while away some hours on the road. Nicely read by Sean Runnette.
