Closer by Roderick Gordon and Brian Williams, Chicken House Scholastic, New York, 2011.
This is the fourth book in continuing saga “Tunnels” about Will and his family and friends as they travel through the underground tunnels they have found, and battle the Styx, their ruthless adversary, and the Rebecca twins who pretended to be Will’s sister but now have become his worst enemy. They want him dead, and he them. They get their chance, and cause great emotional pain but do not quite get Will. Both Will’s parents have been subject to the evil of the Styx.
In this book we have a twist; a schism among the Styx themselves. Eddie, Elliot’s father (the girl that has befriended Will and his companion Chester who is half colony and half Styx) wants to over throw his own leadership, and uses Drake, Will and his friends to help him in this cause, while pretending to be the friend who is wanting to see his daughter safe.
This is still a roller coaster underground. There is more to come.
