Apparently I'm stuck with this series, since I bought the first 4 books 'blindly'

I love the idea of going Underground alright, just hated the prolonged writing style..
But this one bit faster, cause here's a Freefall..

With a Mason like cult, the Illuminate, the lost civilization of Atlantis..AND the theory of Hollow Earth..

Now that the Urban Fantasy is back with more focus of the plot in the Topsoil, and the element of the old Science Theories, things getting much intere

Of the three books so far in the series, this is the one that I have enjoyed the most. The previous two largely take place in the dismal underground worlds controlled by the Styx, but Freefall is a subterranean area completely untouched by these evil humans. Thus, the general mood from the characters feels lighter, and the spirit of adventure is stronger.

(Spoiler alert!) My favorite part, though would have to be once they get to the very center in which is contained a second sun. I couldn’t qui

Everything would be good if there wasn't Will's father which I found annoying as hell. His ignorance was killing me.

After digging through the subterranean world of modern-day London in search of his father, Will Burrows ended up on the run from the diabolical Styx army with his best friend, Chester, and his newly discovered brother, Cal. After an encounter with the Rebecca twins and Styx army, the group of friends fell down a deep hole known as the Pore.

The FREEFALL takes them further into the earth, but they're not alone in the depths of the Pore. Having been mo

I really enjoyed reading this book. I have been waiting for it to come out for a couple of months after I had finished reading "Deeper" I really like the idea of the whole story and it is a book I found hard to put down. I personally think this book was great until the ending, when the surroundings of the "second sun" place was so similar to "topsoil" life, it has a lack of imagination and mystery. It wasn't the way I would have hoped the book to end, I was expecting a bit more than just some "n ...more
This is book 3 of a 6 book set. I have thoroughly enjoyed going on this journey with Will, Chester and the rest of the gang. It is a book with threat of global domination and destruction. One of the aspects of the book that is keeping me reading is all of the main characters are children and or no older than 22. Even the "evil" character is a set of teenage twin girls.

For me this is a familiar story line theme. I am very curious how these 2 authors carry it out. So far the have kept me interest

I am so happy- wait, spoiler- that Elliot and Will finally killed the Rebecca twins. Or, rather, maybe. I have a friend who read the fifth book of the series first, and I don't think the Rebecca twins actually died. Or if there are actually more than just two. I am getting the fourth book in 12 days, exactly, and it is driving me crazy! This is a really good book.

The book Freefall by Roderick Gordon is an unexpected action packed thriller
The book is action packed because the characters have to go through dangerous places while being hunted by dangerous people. The book also had lot’s plot twists that I never saw coming!
In the book Will gets stranded deep underground and must find his way out while being hunted by the evil styx. A surprising plot twist in the book is that Will’s sister Rebecca is actually a styx and has been spying on them.
In conclusion,

I LOVE this book series! It's full of adventure and exploration! The problem with this series is Dr. Burrows. I really can't stand the guy! A sign of a good book is the way it makes you feel about the characters. Whether you love or hate them, a good books makes you feel strongly about them. Dr. Burrows is a bit over the top though. No one can realistically be this dumb/ignorant/naieve... right? Maybe he figures it out in the rest of series?

Better than Deeper!

If I know a thing about what's inside the earth, I think I'll get more excited. Since I know nothing... a little confused here, but that's a thing about science fiction, right? Theories.

Clearly can't wait for the next series, still don't know where the story goes. But, yeaa still, the first one is the best one. The development of the characters here is better than in Deeper, though.

More-ish. Like it.

The third in the Tunnels series, I found myself rereading this. I'm still waiting for the film to come out - we were promised this years ago! I love this series. The story never goes where you think it will go - the boys just continue going deeper into the earth, finding layer upon layer of ancient civilisation which are incredibly believable. There are some wonderfully sinister baddies and some brilliant revelations in this book.
The series would make a brilliant film.

This is the book I enjoyed the most so far in the series. The characters' personalities are stronger, the narration and description are clearer, and the plot is getting more intense. (view spoiler)

As he plummets down a subterranean void, it looks like the end for 14 year-old Will Burrows. But it's just the beginning of a terrifying adventure in which he must face giant carnivorous spiders and the deadly Brights.

The third installment of the "Tunnels" series and an awesome way to continue the journey deeper into the earth. It makes you wonder what it would be like to free-fall down a subterranean pit and travel deeper into unknown territory. I look forward to how the next installment goes i

I think the book could have been about 100-200 pages shorter and still told the story.

Didn't dislike the book, but certainly didn't love it either.

The whole "hollow Earth" thing that came to the fore in this installment of the story was just sort of lame, in my opinion. Not going to read any more of the series.

If you can’t handle action, adventure, and suspense, this is not a book for you. Freefall, the book i'm reviewing, has no weaknesses and much strengths. The plot is good and solid with suspense where you can't stop reading. It also consists of much complex language and terms. This book is 599 pages long but seems to fly by because you can’t put it down. This book is the third in a series of books. The second book, Deeper, ends with Will, the main character, Chester, his friend, Elliot, someone w ...more

Freefall definitely has to be my favorite out of the series so far! The mystery surrounding the Pore and the void below it, the grip of the unknown, and the sense of exploration and adventure all had me turning the pages for more. Love the characters in this book and also the complete reversal of Will's parents. I found myself becoming increasingly annoyed with Dr. Burrows and ended up liking Celia more.

It was a great, suspenseful read! Glad I started this series!

This story follows Will Burrows (a.k.a. Seth Jerome) through his journey inside the pore, a subterranean void with lower gravity. It starts out wit Will's landing inside the pore. As it continues he gets trapped in a net trap, captures on of the Rebeccas, finds a submarine and a route topsoil. During his trip topsoil, with his father, Will contacts his mom and drags her into the mess with the styx. Also, while he was topsoil Will meets up with Drake and comes to find out

Recommended to Kayla by: School-friend Megan
In Deeper, you have chapter one, which is a mini prologue for a character's relative, and then you jump into the action on the first sentence in chapter two. In Freefall, you jump in the action as hard as Will, Chester and Elliott jumped down The Pore: right away.
The action in this book is ridiculously awesome, and I feel that every time a new book is born in this franchise it exceeds the previous incredibly. The last time I remember feeling this excited about a book series was when Harry Potter
