Written by Steve Saville, SCRIBE nominated author of tie-ins for Torchwood, Star Wars and Doctor Who, the first of Titan’s novels will be Primeval: Shadow of the Jaguar [Titan Books, 21 March 2008, £6.99], plunging Cutter and the team into the Peruvian rain forest for a thrilling prehistoric ride!
Action-adventure series Primeval has captured the imagination of audiences and critics alike, selling over 100,000 Season One DVD box sets and now syndicated to networks across the world, from Germany to Australia to Korea. The new novels look to be just the start of fast-developing merchandise tie ins, with a Primeval comic already in the works drawn by Neil Edwards.
