From the Publisher:
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?
Annotation:
At 14, Will Burrows prefers to spend his time doing archeological work with his father, away from his difficult family. But after his father disappears, Will's search leads him into "The Colony," a mysterious underground world. There he uncovers a miserable underclass longing for freedom. Will the quest for his father entangle him with a society he knows next to nothing about?

Praise

"Although the primary focus of the novel is the heroic quest on which Will embarks, there is also enough thoughtful exploration of family dynamics to intrigue readers who may not normally be drawn to fantasy...." 3/1/2008

"The authors add distinctive, vivid touches to the somewhat trendy 'towns down below' premise...and the murderous, refreshingly competent Styx makes an uncommonly challenging adversary." 2/15/2008
