Gateway to Agartha
Payton Thomas, a ten-year-old prodigy, has been diagnosed with ‘sponge syndrome’—a condition that allows him to glean information from others simply by being in their presence. When he is called upon to help save the human race, however, Payton wonders whether his special ability might instead be a curse.
The U.S. has uncovered the entrance to an enormous underground world called Agartha, home to many creatures that had previously been thought to exist only in myth. One of those creatures—a maniacal beast intent on enslaving all of mankind—happens to share a unique connection with his surface-dwelling counterpart, making Payton the planet’s last hope for salvation.
