Seven years ago, navy deep-sea pilot JONAS TAYLOR found himself on a top-secret dive in the Mariana Trench, the deepest, most unexplored realm in the ocean. Seven miles down he came face-to-face with the most fearsome predator ever to inhabit the planet–carcharodon Megalodon– the 70-foot 50,000 pound prehistoric cousin of the great white shark. Rushing his submersible topside, he barely escaped, but his actions cost the lives of the two scientists on-board the vessel, as well as his career, the Navy dismissing his claims as mere “aberrations of the deep.”
Jonas (now a paleobiologist) is still trying to prove to the world that the creatures exist, harbored in a warm-water current created by hydrothermal vents at the bottom of the gorge, trapped beneath six miles of freezing waters. On board the DAYANG YIHAO research vessel, which holds the deep-sea submersible record, it is Jonas' old friend at Zhang Institute Minway who gives Jonas his chance to go back into the Mariana Trench. With the help of Minway, his son DJ, an extreme sports enthusiast and experienced deep submersible diver, and his daughter Suyin, Jonas with his old friend Mac journey back into a world of the unknown, the Mariana Trench. Jonas is determined to prove to the world the MEG exists, which is why despite fear he takes the dive.
But man’s presence in this unexplored domain releases one of the 60ft SHARKS from its purgatory – a pregnant female – And then the planet’s apex predator of all time surfaces . . .
