Meg: A Novel by Steve Alten

Meg is the first book in a trilogy and it follows a group of people who are trapped on an island in the middle of nowhere. They’re all part of an elite group called The Alphas and they’re trying to get off this island so they can save their families and friends. But, wait: What if there’s something else even more dangerous than being stuck in an island? You’ll have to read the book to find out!


Meg is a prehistoric shark. She lives in the depths of the sea and eats great white sharks like Jonas Taylor, who is on his honeymoon with his wife when he’s attacked by Megs. He survives and manages to escape but loses both his legs at one point during their fight against her.

Jonas has since become an expert deep-sea diver, an archaeologist, a fisherman and much more—but he still remembers everything about that fateful day when he was attacked by Megs for the first time.
