about the book

What starts out to be a fun field trip to Ireland for Flin and his school debate team turns into a life changing adventure when their bus ends up in an earthquake. Flin and his teammates get swallowed deep into the earth and become trapped under the ocean inside a clear dome where they discover an unknown civilization. Now they must fight their way back to the surface if they ever want to see home again. Join Flin and his classmates on a journey of a lifetime in this thrilling adventure story.

My Review:
Original, fun story. A story to be shared with your children. 
This book is the journey of a lifetime. 13 year old Flin and his debate team classmates are on a field trip to Ireland. A land of magic and mystery. An earthquake occurs and the kids get swallowed into the Earth. They must find their way back to the surface against tremendous odd. This book involves magic, fantasy, and strange and amazing creatures. 

A wonderful elementary/middle grade book. It is the first in a series. I am anxiously awaiting the next book
