Lara Croft and Indiana Jones join forces in space!

This December, discover the newest series from New York Times bestselling duo, Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner. Jules Addison and Amelia Radcliffe join forces in a tomb-raiding race on a newly-discovered planet to unravel the secrets of an ancient, long-extinct civilization--only to uncover a revelation that could spell the end of the human race...

We are the last of our kind. We will not fade into the dark. We will tell our story to the stars - we will be Undying.

When Earth intercepts a message from a long-extinct alien race, it seems like the solution the planet has been waiting for. The Undying's advanced technology has the potential to undo massive environmental damage and turn lives around, and Gaia, the Undying's former home planet, is a treasure trove waiting to be uncovered.

For Jules Addison and his fellow scholars, the discovery of an alien culture offers unprecedented opportunity for study... as long as scavengers like Amelia Radcliffe don't loot everything first.

Despite their opposing reasons for smuggling themselves onto the alien planet's surface, they're both desperate to uncover the riches hidden in the Undying temples. Beset by rival scavenger gangs, Jules and Amelia form a fragile alliance... but both are keeping secrets that make trust nearly impossible.

As they race to decode the ancient messages left by the alien race, Jules and Amelia must navigate the traps and trials within the Undying temple and stay one step ahead of the scavvers on their heels. They came to Gaia certain that they had far more to fear from their fellow humans than the ancient beings whose mysteries they're trying to unravel.

But the more they learn about the Undying, the more Jules and Amelia start to feel like their presence in the temple is part of a grand design one that could spell the end of the human race...

YA favourites Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner, fresh off the back of the Starbound trilogy, are back with another brilliant adventure that you absolutely need to read this summer. Pitched as Tomb Raider meets Indiana Jones in space, Unearthed is the tale of two unlikely heroes who venture into the belly of an alien temple in the hopes of uncovering vital technology that could turn around life on Earth, only to meet with so much more than they bargained for.

This is definitely not your average adventure story - the plot just races along, beautifully showcasing the captivating world that Kaufman and Spooner have built. Most of all, the heroes of this story, plucky scavenger Mia and the bookish Jules, make the most improbable yet loveable duo to ever transport readers across the galaxy, and I can’t wait to read more of them. Unearthed is a gleeful celebration of sci-fi that will leave you grinning from the first page to the last - it’ll be a long wait until the sequel!
