Will Burrows loves a good adventure. His father was trained as an archaeologist but works in a second rate local museum. In their off hours, Will and his Dad do amateur digs in hopes of finding something really exciting, something really noteworthy. They've had a few interesting discoveries but nothing seems to pan out.

Bend on trying to find something really interesting, Will enlists the help of his buddy Chester. Every day after school the two work on an area that seems to have some potential. At the same time Will's Dad is also onto something huge. In secret, he has been doing research on a strange orb that he found in a cellar. It appears to be some sort of light made of materials that are very unique and have some very interesting qualities.

Will and Chester stumble upon Dr. Burrows work when the man suddenly disappears. Then, the real adventure begins. Will's world is turned upside down. Not only does he find out that his parents are his natural parents but that his sister is actually a spy sent to watch him and make sure that he never finds out the truth.

I highly recommend Tunnels and can't wait for the sequel. It's full of action and intrigue. A great plot and a well thought out world.
