Posted by: Craig Woolheater on February 18th, 2015

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.

Vostok is now available at Amazon.com.

One Response to “Vostok: Sequel to The Loch”

  1. Matt Bille responds:

    I’ve read it, and it’s a lot of fun. This genre-melding entry in Alten’s creature sagas uses the creatures – and I mean a LOT of different creatures – to set the events in motion and bring his characters from the Meg series and The Loch together. From there, it’s a science fiction adventure combining everything from UFOs to conspiracy theories to quantum physics. So Vostok is not purely cryptofiction, but it includes plenty of remarkable beasts, beast hunters, and beast-to-beast combat for Alten’s fans. While the writing is a bit below the heights Alten reached in his best-written novel, Sharkman, the man knows how to write action and displays a sure hand with his characters and critters. Alten fans won’t be disappointed.
