To escape Blake Sutton’s army at the end of the enthralling Well’s End, Mia and her friends jump into the newly gurgling fountain of youth and swim to its very bottom. When they resurface, an astounding world awaits them—an entire underground civilization of humans, the Keepers of the Well.
But instead of finding a safe haven, Mia and her gang are quickly embroiled in a dangerous, high-stakes battle royale. If Mia wants to save everyone she loves and make it back home alive, she’s got to get to the water’s source before Sutton and his troops, who are still hot on her trail.
With new characters and new threats, Seth Fishman has upped the ante fantastically and delivers another tense, fast-paced adventure in a richly imagined world just below our feet.
“Teens will find it easy to feel invested in Jimmy and Odessa’s compelling adventure…Readers will be eager to see where the series goes from here.”
“The sequel to The Well’s End takes the action into a mysterious underground city…Fishman sets most of the action in Capian but doesn’t forget that Jimmy and Odessa are still on the surface, trying to escape Sutton’s minions and find a way to help the infected. This concluding adventure de-emphasizes the mad-scientist plot line in favor of the newly imagined underground world, opening the adventure up…Those who started with the first should be satisfied with this conclusion.”
