Primeval is a series of spin-off books based on the ITV science fiction series of the same name. The novels are new, canon stories rather than reboots or novelisations, and each book chronologically takes place between two episodes of the Primeval TV series.


The Primeval novels generally focus overall on the Anomaly Research Centre team's efforts to combat Anomaly incursions overseas when Anomalies begin opening in other parts of the world outside of the UK.
