As he plummets down a subterranean void, it looks like the end for fourteen-year-old Will Burrows. But it's just the beginning of a terrifying new adventure in which he must face giant carnivorous spiders and the deadly Brights. And, much worse, twin Styx girls with a score to settle... The third exciting adventure in the fantastic Tunnels series from acclaimed authors Roderick Gordon and Brian Williams.
Fourteen-year-old Will Burrows lives with his parents and younger sister Rebecca in London. He has little in common with any of them, except for a passion for digging, which he shares with his father, a museum curator and doctor of archaeology. When his father suddenly disappears after a row with his mother, the police believe he has just gone away for a while to cool down. But Will is unconvinced, and decides to investigate with his best friend, Chester.
In this sixth and concluding book of the Tunnels series, the Styx and their cohorts of deadly Armagi have swept across England, leaving death and devastation in their wake. It seems nothing can stop them now. Only a miracle can save the day and, in the inner world at the centre of the earth, Will and Elliott might just have stumbled upon one as they uncover ancient secrets that are fundamental to all human and Styx life.
The Styx have surfaced... If you thought the Limiters were nasty, think again. This time it’s their females that provide the creepiest surprise. And all that stands in their way are Will and his friends - and a rag-bag team of retired commandos. It’s a smoking spiral of chaos…. The fifth fantastic adventure in the ‘Tunnels’ series for older children, from acclaimed authors Roderick Gordon and Brian Williams. Read by Paul Chequer.
In his quest to find his father, Will is plunged even deeper underground. As if things weren't bad enough already he stumbles across a Styx plot with terrible implications for the world above and his murderous stepsister who isn't finished yet.
