Three words: thrilling, well-written, forever interesting
This book made me nervous and worried for the characters. I was on the edge of my seat every minute, because the plot was just real enough to make a reader really scared.
My favorite character was Fiona. I know she’s the villain, but she was so evilly cunning, and had such a perfect balance of clever practitioner and sly trickster that I felt a little sorry for her when she was arrested. My favorite part was when they were being chased by Fiona and her thugs and the place was flooding. I seriously thought Savannah was going to die.
Synopsis from Harper Collins:
“Gillian Seagret doesn’t listen to people who say her father’s a crackpot. His conspiracy theories about the lost technology of Cold War–era rocket scientist Dr. Aloysius Underberg may have cost him his job and forced them to move to the middle of nowhere, but Gillian knows he’s right and plans to prove it.
When she discovers a missing page from Dr. Underberg’s diary in her father’s mess of an office, she thinks she’s found a big piece of the puzzle—a space-themed riddle promising to lead to Dr. Underberg’s greatest invention. Enlisting the help of her skeptical younger brother, Eric, her best friend, Savannah, and Howard, their NASA-obsessed schoolmate, Gillian sets off on a journey into the ruins of Omega City, a vast doomsday bunker deep inside the earth,.
But they aren’t alone inside its dark and flooded halls. For while Gillian wants to save her dad’s reputation by bringing Dr. Underberg’s secrets to light, there are others who will stop at nothing to make sure they stay buried . . . forever.”
