Author Michael Laceyabout this book: The underlands wait to give and take, and Luminants come to find their fate.

Thomas's parents disappeared mysteriously a decade ago. His childhood more-than-friend, Emily, joins him as they follow a secret map that his dad left. They stumble upon a hidden land under the earth and a town called Wonderful. Lost and trapped, they fight to escape this dark underland, finding restraint around every corner…even the earth seems like its against them.
Thomas learns that his father has been here before and was a Luminant, a trait-bearer with abilities necessary to escape.

-Thomas must find harmony with nature while battling his own doubts and abandonment. He must be the man that Emily needs, while she tries to reconcile the fact that they may never return home.

-Can they trust anyone or can they only rely on each other?
-Will they end up trapped like everyone else in Terra Viva?
-Or will Thomas's Luminant ancestry help them escape?

This is just the beginning. More underlands, trait-bearers, and Luminants are to come as a looming threat waits patiently in the form of a red underland bred for war.

The twists will surprise and the underland will stun.
Readers of all ages will find things they've hoped for and need:
-Understanding of living in harmony with self and circumstance
-Engaging wrestling match to discern fact from fiction.
-Empathy for those who have experienced real life loss
-Perhaps a step towards closure through grief

*Clean content, fast-paced, imaginative

They learn some of the amazing history of the underland called Terra Viva and the terrifying truth that escape is impossible . . . for people who don't bear traits.
Do they find out what they needed too? Will learning about his father finally bring Thomas the closure he needs? Flip through this quick read to find out!
