** spoiler alert ** This is a science fiction book that is very interesting. It has a lot of really, weird parts, but if you ignore those then it is a very good book. It has tons of adventure, suspense, and action. The Main Character is the captin of a mission to serch the moons of saturn, when one of them discovers a new moon that somehow was never seen before. when they go to investigate it the are some how "eaten" by it. Then Each of the people is seperated and put out under the soil where they dig there ways out. The rest of the book is about them finding each other, Building a small home, then, find there way up to the "hub" of the wheel shaped world and meeting Gaea. My favorite part is when the confront Gaea. It is really cool because first they yell into open air, then a booming voice answers them. After going up a fire-y stair case they see the "godess" for the first time. They tell the story of their travels then go into a small homey room and talk about it again, with Gaea in a more humanly form, They ask questions and have coffee. At the end of the conversation the main character becomes the Wizard of Gaea, kind of like an ambasator to the people inside her.
