My favorite book series is the "Tunnels" series written by Roderick Gordon and Brian Williams from the UK. This series follows a young Will, son of an estranged archaeologist, whose life is thrown upside down when he discovers a hidden society underground. Imagine a tiny town with a city hall, police station, and pub inside of a large cavern illuminated by lanterns. These people have strict codes of conduct that prohibit any interaction with the topsoilers, which explains why they have not been found out by popular media. The 'villain' in this plot is a group called the Styx. The Styx can best be described as a former SS Nazi officer who now works for the men in black. The Styx, we come to find out in later books, are so powerful that they control the entire underworld as well as the world we live in. I'll leave this detail for you to discover: you'll never guess who the leader of the Styx is! This book keeps you guessing from page to page, and though Will discovers layer upon layer of new interesting worlds, the authors somehow tie it all together in the end. I recommend this series to anyone who appreciates mystery, action, romance, and history. They better make a movie!!! #thenextHarryPotter
