Gillian Seagret doesn’t listen to people who say her
father’s a crackpot. His conspiracy theories about the
lost technology of Cold War-era rocket scientist Dr.
Aloysius Underberg may have cost him his job and
forced the family to move to a cottage in the sticks,
but Gillian knows he’s right, and plans to prove it.
When she discovers a missing page from Dr.
Unerberg’s diary in her father’s mess of an office, she
thinks she’s found a big piece of the puzzle–a space-
themed riddle promising to lead to Dr. Underberg’s
greatest invention. Enlisting the help of her
skepticalyounger brother, Eric, her best friend, Savannah, and
Howard, their NASA-obsessed schoolmate, Gillian
sets off into the ruins of a vast doomsday bunker,
deep within the earth.
But they aren’t alone inside its dark and flooded halls.
Now Gillian and her friends must race to explore
OMEGA CITY and find the answers they need. For
while Gillian wants to save her dad’s reputation by
bringing Dr. Underberg’s secrets to light, there are
others who will stop at nothing to make sure they stay
