The main character Jonas, leads the team. While they are down there,
they find a Meg alive and angry. The story is that they are down there

About Steve Alten’s MEG series:
MEG is short for Carcharodon megalodon, the 70 foot, 70,000 pound
prehistoric cousin of the Great White shark. In the series, the MEG is
a pure albino, with grey-blue eyes.
The MEG series uses a bold font for the word MEG. All 99design
concept covers must use this same font, which can be lifted for MEG,
MEG: Primal Waters, or MEG: Hell’s Aquarium. Use gold for color.
This commemorative anniversary edition features the original MEG: A
Novel of Deep Terror, combined with the ebook prequel MEG: ORIGINS,
completely re-edited and rewritten by NY Times best-selling author
1. Surfing scene at JAWS Maui with the Meg inside a 6 story wave
about to devour a surfer.
2. The MEG in the Mariana Trench, confronting the Abyss Glider-2, a
one man sub (see Graham Hawkes prone design.) Should be eerie, with
hydrothermal vents, black smokers, & tubeworms.
3. A gorgeous blonde in a wetsuit and scuba gear, filming from a
clear plastic shark tube as the MEG opens wide.
I have attached 3 previous covers from books in the series.
We want the cover to be completely shocking and a tribute to the 20
year brand of books.
There is a real chance that this book may be released as a major
motion pictures this year.
