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?

Very good plot, but the whole process was kind of slow. Surprising ending.

Good book. I think that it is kind of a boring start, but the next books are better.

Thrilling, mystery and adventure. I couldn't put it down without imagining that there were cities with people or even aliens in them!

Adventures, friendship, and family. This was a well crafted start to a fun series.

Tunnels starts as a search and rescue. Will Burrows is looking for his father in one of his infamous tunnels. What he finds is a secret society under the soil. Even more to his surprise, he finds that he has his own mysterious connection to this underground place.
Although the books is lengthy, the story is compelling. This book is perfect for an advanced reader who isn't quite ready for the teen scene.

Altair Ibn-la Ahad slaps all the Styx with one finger. Then he proceeds to do random stuff you know what I mean ^.^
