Bold, thrilling, and treacherous, UNEARTHED (On Sale January 9, 2018 | Hyperion), by New York Times bestselling authors Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner, is an action-packed, high-octane adventure with a swoon-worthy romance. As lies and flaws are exposed, readers will be captivated by the tough, whip-smart, and courageous characters as they fight for their own—and humanity’s—very survival. The first in a duology, the production company Cross Creek Pictures has optioned the film rights, with director Doug Liman attached.
When Earth intercepts a message from an extinct alien race, it appears that the Undying’s advanced technology has the potential to save the ruined planet. The aliens’ message leads to the planet Gaia. For Jules Addison, the discovery of an ancient 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, they’re both desperate to uncover the riches hidden in the Undying temples.
Beset by scavenger gangs, Jules and Mia form a fragile alliance… but both are keeping secrets that make trust nearly impossible. As they race to decode the ancient messages, Jules and Mia must navigate the traps and trials within the Undying temples while staying one step ahead of the scavvers. They came to Gaia to unravel the ancient beings’ mysteries. But the more they learn about the Undying, the more Jules and Mia 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.
As their loyalty to each other is tested, Jules and Mia must both decide the lengths to which they will go to survive, while the fate of humanity lies in the balance.
