THE MOST FEARED MONSTER IN HUMAN HISTORY IS MAKING HUMANS . . . HISTORY.

Tartarus has earned its name. Having tracked a mortally wounded Sam Mot back to the Tube’s entrance, the revenge-obsessed Octopus giganteus female launches a ferocious assault on the unsuspecting submarine base. Its goal is simple: to avenge its exterminated brood by slaughtering every living thing within, including the facility’s caged pliosaurs.

As Tartarus’s woefully inadequate security forces engage the invading Kraken, an oblivious Dirk Braddock remains trapped in his own private hell. Still reeling from having come face to face with the awful truth about his father, the young scientist watches in horror as his body succumbs to the most virulent Cretaceous cancer strain of all – the one that destroyed Jake Braddock.

While Dirk fights for his very soul, an infuriated Captain Natalya Dragunova, having escaped Eric Grayson’s horde of Homo sauridae on Diablo Caldera, arrives in Tartarus armed and looking for payback. She plans to avenge her murdered crew and, per Garm Braddock’s last wishes, rescue his brother Dirk in the process.

Unfortunately, the tough-as-nails sub commander has no idea what she’s walking into.

Nefarious forces have been set in motion – forces that seek to put an end to her and everyone she cares about. But there’s more. Soon, Tartarus’s beleaguered survivors find themselves face to face with the facility’s deepest, darkest secret; a secret that, once freed, will ensure mankind’s already tenuous mastery of the planet comes to an abrupt and apocalyptic end.

And behind every corner, the Kraken patiently waits . . .
