The end to end all ends: The epic finale to the NEW YORK TIMES bestselling TUNNELS series!

Total Termination of the English: The Styx and their lethal cohorts of Armagi will settle for nothing less. Not even the mighty US military is strong enough to stop the assault!

Will and Elliott flee back underground, down to the innards of the Earth first mapped in DEEPER and FREEFALL. With the support of a small team that survived the plague of New Germania, they discover a secret at the site of the three core pyramids. A secret that may explain not only where the Styx came from, but the human race, too. Can Elliott, with her mixed blood, unlock the clues before Earth itself spins out of orbit?

All the many threads of the prior TUNNELS books come together in this epic conclusion!

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Prasie for the TUNNELS Series

"Action; lively dialogue; diabolical villains and feisty teens; clever cat-like companion hunters; things that blow up; torture and mind-manipulation; family and friends in danger; and trust and betrayal. A great science-fiction adventure." -- VOYA

"Propelled by chases, attacks, explosions, cunning deceptions, and acts of heroism and stupid bravado." -- SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL

"An amazing world . . . with astonishing twists and surprises hiding around every darkened corner." -- WWW.TEENREADS.COM

"Compelling." -- BOOKLIST, starred review

"Exciting." -- KIRKUS

"Thrilling." -- THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH

Children's Literature - Natalie Gurr
Will and Elliott are trapped below, with little hope of returning to the surface. Will is happy to accept this turn of events but Elliott is anxious. Along with a small group of plague survivors, they stumble across an ancient secret that could change everything. Meanwhile, back on the surface, the Styx and their unyielding army of Armagi are seeking the total destruction of Earth. Jiggs and Drake are fighting the odds, and Chester is learning disturbing truths. As the action builds, lives will change and the Earth will never be the same. This is the sixth book in the lengthy “Tunnels” series, and Gordon and Williams are finally trying to wrap up their epic science fiction tale of digging, madness, and giant insects. This book carries on in the tradition of its predecessors by perplexing readers with incredulous plot twists and exaggerated scenarios. Readers who have followed the series from the beginning will be the only ones who will appreciate this novel and follow its baffling turns. This series is not recommended for younger readers due to its extreme violence, multitude of disturbing situations, and lack of empathy among the characters. Reviewer: Natalie Gurr; Ages 12 to adult.
Kirkus Reviews
2013-10-01
It's been a long perilous journey since Will first discovered the underground world ruled by arachnid/human creatures five volumes ago. Opening where Spiral (2012) left off, all inhabitants of the inner world have been wiped out by a deadly virus. But as Will and Elliott explore the carnage, they discover a few survivors and are able to concoct a vaccine. Meanwhile, Topsoil infrastructure is devastated as the Styx, still in hot pursuit of world dominion, use humans as fleshy hatcheries overseen by Alex, the evil Styx matriarch. As the surviving core characters of the series begin a journey that will converge in London, half-breed Elliott is mysteriously guided by her inner Styx to "the tower" and a scepter that seem to be the key to it all. As the fate of the entire world rests in Elliott's powerful hands, the origins of the Styx and the true nature of Earth are revealed. The plot is propelled by military-style action, science-fiction extravagance and a dollop of current politics to keep things real, all spliced together in rapid-fire chapters. Though the excitement is irresistible, it's best to have some experience with the series. (Several pages of prologue provide background on the previous volumes.) Relayed at top-speed, this smart tale has a grand ending that delivers the goods; fans will be captivated and gratified. (Science fiction. 10-14)

    Not that satisfying

    In the end, it does not feel like the final entry in this story.
