Maryland countryside in…



Omega City

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

  • “With seamless writing, a thrilling plot, lots of engaging 
    science puzzles, and remarkable characterization, 
    Peterfreund's exciting tale keeps the adventure solidly in 
    the foreground. Young readers looking for a page turning 
    quest should get into this planned series on the ground 
    floor." — Booklist *Starred* Review 
    "Peterfreund's focus on character development is 
    complemented by the equal attention she gives to the 
    vast underground city itself. Gillian’s instincts to protect 
    her friends and clear her historian father’s tarnished 
    name are admirable, but Peterfreund gives every 
    character the opportunity to grow, revealing themselves 
    for who they really are."— Publishers Weekly
    “With nonstop action, sly humor, and nothing short of the
     end of the world at stake, Omega City is the alpha book 
    in a new series that mashes up mystery, scifi, and 
    action/adventure into a thrilling novel you’ll want to 
    devour in one sitting. I did, and I can’t wait to read what 
    comes next!” — Peter Lerangis, New York Times 
    Bestselling author of the Seven Wonders series
    “Peterfreund’s boundless imagination takes on a new and 
    exciting adventure!” – Jessica Day George, New York 
    Times Bestselling author of Tuesdays at the Castle”

    “Diana Peterfreund takes us to an underground city that’s
     utterly mind-blowing, yet disturbingly possible. A 
    knockout of a story that will have readers cheering 
    straight through to the final, shocking, twist.” — #1 New
     York Times bestselling author Gordon Korman
