The most fearsome predators in history...are no longer history.

The Philippine Sea Plate: The most unexplored realm on the planet. Hidden beneath its primordial crust lies the remains of the Panthalassa , an ocean that dates back 220 million years. Vast and isolated, the Panthalassa is inhabited by nightmarish sea creatures long believed extinct.

Tanaka Institute, Monterey, CA: Four years have passed since Angel, the 76-foot, 100,000 pound Megalodon, birthed a litter of pups far too numerous and aggressive to keep in one pen. Fortunately, a Dubai royal prince who is building the largest aquarium in the world seeks to purchase two of the "runts"--if Jonas Taylor's twenty-one year-old son, David, will be their handler. Jonas reluctantly agrees, and David is off to Dubai for the summer of his life, not realizing that he is being set up to lead an expedition that will hunt down and capture the most dangerous creatures ever to inhabit the Earth!

Another really good read, appeals to a broad cross section of reader age groups, esp is you love sharks (or a terrified by them). Highly recommended read, but as this is the 4th book in the series it would pay to read the earlier books in the series (Library unfortunately does not have the first two book in the series).

Better than the second book, but I find the series is starting to get a little tired, and I love prehistoric creatures, but when Alten started adding in other giant prehistoric creatures along with giant sharks it was a bit much.
