Originally self-published, this riveting fantasy became the stuff of legend before catching the attention of the publisher who discovered J.K. Rowling. Soon after it was optioned for a major film.
When 14-year-old Will Burrows goes looking for his missing father, he discovers an underground world that time forgot. Ruled by a brutal class called the Styx, “The Colony” has not changed in a hundred years. Into this dark and mysterious place go Will and his friend Chester, unsure what they will find and oblivious to the dangers ahead. Before long their extraordinary adventure unearths a terrible secret—one that may cost them their lives. Hailed as the next big thing in fantasy literature, Tunnels grips the imagination while making readers think twice about the ground beneath their feet. Narrator Steven Crossley captures the authors’ unique vision with his captivating performance.
“Gordon and Williams will soon have legions of fans. Tunnels is just the beginning.”—Guardian (UK)

i've not listened 2 this book on tape but read the book and it is the best book(well no deeper the sequel is better)i have read in my 13 year life. its story line is like no other, and characters are relatable and down to earth(no pun intended) . the person who first discovered J.K Rowling's Harry Potter discovered this amazing piece of lituature and I believe it is better than that whole series put together. to sum it all up this book is a certain must read!
For fans of Harry Potter
Tunnels is one incredible book. The characters are entertaining, the underground suspense is scary and awesome at the same time, and the action is great! I remember seeing how sick the cover looked, and I bought the hard cover copy right away. Don't buy this, buy the actual book!!!! This is one hardcore series and is going to be superb, I just started reading the sequal, Deeper, and is it awesome.
