VOSTOK by Steve Alten [4.5 stars]

From the Description:

East Antarctica: The coldest, most desolate location on Earth. Two-and-a-half miles below the ice cap is Vostok, a six thousand square mile liquid lake, over a thousand feet deep, left untouched for more than 15 million years. Now, marine biologist Zachary Wallace and two other scientists aboard a submersible tethered to a laser will journey 13,000 feet beneath the ice into this unexplored realm to discover Mesozoic life forms long believed extinct – and an object of immense power responsible for the evolution of modern man.
In this sequel to The Loch and prequel to the upcoming MEG 5: Nightstalkers, New York Times best-selling author Steve Alten offers readers a crossover novel that combines characters from two of his most popular series.
Steve Alten is the New York Times and International bestselling author of fourteen novels, including the MEG series about Carcharodon Megalodon, the 70-foot, 100,000 pound prehistoric cousin of the Great White shark and Domain trilogy, a series about the Mayan Calendar’s 2012 doomsday prophecy. His work has been published in over 30 countries and is being used in thousands of middle and high school curriculum as part of Adopt-An-Author, a free teen reading program, which he founded with teachers back in 1999.

With VOSTOK Steve Alten has combined two of my favorite worlds. The sequel to The Loch also includes Jonas Taylor and the Tanaka Institute from the Meg series. Filled with the action and terror that comes from mankind meeting creatures from the Mesozoic era, aliens, and a shadow government with it's own secret agenda. This book carries you from Scotland to the Antarctic and places beyond in a non-stop thrill ride. You won't want to put it down. A fast paced, super fun read! Do yourself a favor and grab this (and the rest of these two series of novels) 4.5 star read.
