Welcome to the Tunnels Wikia!

Tunnels is a book series written by Roderick Gordon and Brian Williams. The books in order are: Tunnels, Deeper, Freefall, Closer, Spiral, and Terminal.

The books take place in England and an underground world, with Will Burrows as the main character. When looking for Will's missing father, Will Burrows and his friend Chester accidentally discover a secret underground city filled with "colonists" and "Styx" rulers. The Styx are planning to release a fatal virus on the Earth's surface, so that they can take over Earth with their own people. Will and Chester learn that Will's father journeyed deeper into the Earth, and they follow him, meeting several other people along the way. Will discovers that his sister, Rebecca, is actually an undercover Styx, and that she is completely evil and will stop at nothing to kill him. They pursue Will's father deeper into the Earth, up to the point where they end up in the center of the world, where yet more surprises await. Will must join forces with the most unlikely of allies to fight the Styx, who are now bent on total "Topsoil" domination, but not all is as it seems...and nothing can last forever..

"So, are we going to jump for it?" Will said, peering at what he assumed was a sheer drop.

"Sure, be my guest.  It's several hundred feet down, as the stone falls," Elliott replied.  "But you might want to try over here instead. A Coprolite ladder.  Not as quick as jumping, but much less painful."
