Thirteenth Skull by Rick Yancey
Book DescriptionThere are some things deep within the belly of the earth that should never be disturbed. Which is exactly why Alfred wants to stay at home. When a vision foretells a cataclysmic battle between the 'Sons of Light' and the 'Sons of Darkness', Alfred is called into action. Whoever finds the fabled 13th skull of Merlin, will have in his hands the power to usher in a new Dark Age and the Apocalypse. And so the race is on to find the skull, which rests at the bottom of an abyss called Krubera - a place so terrifying it nearly drove Alfred's mentor, Op-Nine, insane.

Last Star, Paperback (May 2016)
The enemy is Other. The enemy is us. They're down here, they're up there, they're nowhere. They want the Earth, they want us to have it. They came to wipe us out, they came to save us. But beneath these riddles lies one truth: Cassie has been betrayed. So has Ringer. Zombie. Nugget. And all 7.5 billion people who used to live on our planet.

Includes an excerpt from "Alfred Kropp: the seal of Solomon."
US Kirkus Review » Alfred Kropp, the intrepid descendent of Lancelot, is caught up in his third mission to save the world. Alfred's magical blood can heal victims' wounds, a talent targeting him for abduction and use as a government experiment. Yancey (Alfred Kropp: The Seal of Solomon, 2007, etc.) crowds his story with over-the-top chase scenes. He puts his hero on a galloping horse pursued by roaring motorcycles, dangles him by a cable under a soaring helicopter and pushes him down a mountain on an inverted garbage-can lid. The work is soaked with action but characters are cutouts: Jourdain Garmot seeks revenge because Alfred killed his father; Nueve, the new Op Nine (the Office of Interdimensional Paradoxes and Extraordinary Phenomena's top agent), is suspiciously creepy; blue-eyed Ashley seems too good to be true. Surviving back-to-back-to-back escapes, Alfred realizes he can trust nobody while racing against time to locate Merlin's 13th crystal skull, an item with the power to destroy the universe. This action novel delivers its advertised thrills, but familiarity with prior titles in the series is helpful. (Fiction. YA) (Kirkus Reviews)
