Staff Reviews


Something has always felt “off” about Will Burrows’ family. The only person he really connects with is his father, an eccentric archeologist with a passion for digging. But when Mr. Burrows disappears, Will feels compelled to unearth the truth. He discovers a secret tunnel in their house that leads him to an underground city, but there he finds more questions than answers - and something about this city feels deeply wrong. 

I highly recommend this series for kids who enjoy creepy stories, as well as fans of Stephen King!

Description


The international sensation The story of an outcast boy, his eccentric dad, and the scary underground world they discover through secret TUNNELS.
14-year-old Will Burrows has little in common with his strange, dysfunctional family. In fact, the only bond he shares with his eccentric father is a passion for archaeological excavation. So when his dad mysteriously vanishes, Will is compelled to dig up the truth behind his disappearance. He unearths the unbelievable: a subterranean society that time forgot. "The Colony" has existed unchanged for a century, but it's no benign time capsule of a bygone era--because the Colony is ruled by a merciless overclass, the Styx. Will must free his father--is he also about to ignite a revolution?
