About this item

After seven months as a captive of Minerva, the insane Alpha queen, Lyric Walker has escaped to the surface. Her only goal is to warn the world about the Great Abyss. When she finally arrives back in Coney Island, she discovers a world she never expected, one where humans and Alpha are finally working hand in hand to rebuild the country. But she soon discovers that an old enemy allied with an old friend may kill them all before the monsters get their turn. Where will Lyric's loyalties, and her heart, lead her? With nail-biting action and romance, Michael Buckley's epic trilogy draws to a stunning conclusion.

About the Author

Michael Buckley

A nomad at heart, Michael Buckley thrives on adventuring in remote corners of the globe--rappelling through the treetops of Costa Rica, hunting elusive mammals in the wilds of Bhutan (with a camera) , diving with manta rays, kayaking in Cambodia, or trekking in Tibet. To get off the track, he is keen on self-propelled transport methods--mountain-biking, hiking, kayaking and diving.

He is author of a dozen books, including Meltdown in Tibet (a shocking environmental expose) , Eccentric Explorers (winner of Biography category, National Indie Excellence Awards, USA, 2009) , Shangri-La: a Guide to the Himalayan Dream (themed around the Himalayan utopia) and Tibet: the Bradt Travel Guide. Three ebooks published as Kindle editions are Eccentric Explorers; Travels in the Tibetan World (travel narrative, winner of Lowell Thomas Travel Journalism Award, USA, 2003) ; and Beastly Encounters (tracking near-mythical creatures to their lairs) . Although he travels world-wide, he is especially drawn to Southeast Asia and the Himalayan region. Related websites:
