In New York City, a massive monster is destroyed by a subway train … and its surviving reptilian companion can speak English. In Columbia, a scientist crawls up from the depths of the Earth, bringing news of a miraculous new mineral power source … and demons below. In Texas, a convicted murderer is spared at the last minute by an international conglomerate … which wants to organize an expedition to the center of the Earth, with him as a guide. Because like the scientist, he’s been there.
The whole team is headed straight to Hell.

Born in the Underneath … trapped in the Overworld … the calm, inhuman visitor known as KARTKAS is charged with helping a human team visit and explore his stomping grounds … the regions beneath … commonly known throughout history as HELL. Their journey only starts in the Bermuda Triangle, aboard a ghost ship – a haunted tanker.
BENEATH THAT: A violent steam tunnel breaching the Atlantic Ocean floor.
And beneath that …?

THE MISSION CLOCK IS TICKING … for the Cal-Ex spike team, the scientist, the troubleshooter, the witch, the murderer, and KARTKAS, the emissary from the Underneath … a place which we Upworlders have always called HELL.
BUT FIRST they have to ride the “Bullet” — the capsule that will deliver them unto Hell.
And the trip may destroy them before they even set foot.

WELCOME TO HELL …
Communications with the surface cut off … besieged by sand-crawling, piranha-like predators … the CalEx subsurface strike team finds itself in deep combat from the moment they step out of the hatch … with no immediate prospect of return to the Upworld they left behind.
Stef, Samples, Dix, and their half-breed Underworld guide, Kartkas, must find their way in this strange, hostile new environment while still trying to achieve their mission directive to recover the rare mineral discovered by Dr. Correll.
If they can survive long enough to do it.

IT’S HELL DOWN HERE IN … HELL. Stef, Samples, Capt. Lamb and the entire CalEx strike team have incurred casualties the moment they set foot into the blistering purgatory of the Underneath. They are the first human beings to venture into this alien landscape, with a convicted murderer, a drunken scientist, and a half-human, half-reptile native as their “guides.” But first they have to contend with an entirely new enemy … a previously unglimpsed form of armored, mantis-like soldier bred solely for combat, engineered to protect and kill!
