When a dangerous, hooded figure threatens someone with certain death if they don’t leave his island immediately, the average, sane person takes off running for the nearest ship. But Molly Jackson isn’t the average, sane person.
A house on the island has mysteriously exploded, and everyone is pretending it was an accident. Molly knows better. Something is going on in the maze of tunnels deep below the earth. Something dark and deadly waits there, its secrets hidden away for generations. Secrets the inhumanly-powerful Xandi have sworn to protect. Secrets Molly and her friends are determined to uncover.
When they find the professor’s ancient journal, their quest can begin.
They search the island from “invisible” villages to underwater caves and a frozen chamber buried in the heart of a volcano. Avoiding traps, solving puzzles, and collecting all the segments of the amber key, they must reach the cavern laboratory before their faceless enemy. Or before Molly’s hooded figure follows through with his threat.
If they fail, the whole world could fall.
