The Lovereading4Kids comment

This is the eagerly-anticipated fourth instalment of the internationally bestselling Tunnels series. This series continues to live up to the hype that started with Tunnels and continued with Deeper and Freefall.

In Closer, at the centre of the Earth, in a world that no one knows exists that is ruled by a violent regime, archaeologist Will is in trouble. His enemy, the Styx, are close behind. They'll pursue him to the ends of the world – any world. Meanwhile Drake with help from the unlikeliest of allies is preparing to fight the Styx from above. But will his daring plan bring him closer to victory...or to certain death?

This is once again, a terrific adventure that’s well-paced, chock full of excitement but plenty of frightening and bloody stuff too.

The Tunnels movie is currently in production with the producers of The Spiderwick Chronicles, shooting spring 2010.
