Meg: Primal Waters Book Review

Hello Gemmies! I have a new book review to share with you today. June is here, and along with the warmer weather, is what I like to call Sea Monster Reading season. There is nothing better than sitting on the beach reading a great sea monster tale. I absolutely love sharks so of course I started this sea monster season with The Meg Series by Steve Alten. This review is for Meg: Primal Waters the third book in the Meg Series.

Meg: Primal Waters kicks off with a huge time jump after the events in The Trench. We are reunited with our now much older main characters. Jonas is jaded, Terry is suffering from PTSD, Mac is a raging drunk, Tanaka is depressed and all are on the verge of financial ruin. They also all live pretty mediocre lives compared to the previous books and are pretty boring. I really wanted to love this book, but it just fell flat for me. There is more human drama than there is the scientific facts and shark carnage that I love. The ending is satisfying but I struggled to get there. I will continue on with the series because i'm too far in to stop now. I hope the next book gets back to the formula that makes this series so enjoyable

If you are a fan of this series, like killer sharks, reality tv show drama, and deep sea adventures give this book a try. Published by Forge Books, Meg: Primal Waters is available for purchase from all major booksellers. I give Meg: Primal Waters 3 out of 5 gems. Happy Reading!
