"There could be anything living down there for thousands of years, and no one would know!"
ANOTHER CULTURE LIVES BENEATH THE CITY—AND THEY'RE NOT HUMANS
By the accounts of a 17th century diary, there is a subterranean city known as Archopolis-a secret city that is home to extinct species of evolved crocodiles who can communicate through melodious notes they sing. Their only connection to the human world is an ancient well where early Americans in the 1600's used to gather their water.
This diary has come to the hands of Tatiana, a.k.a. “lizard girl” because of her odd interest with crocodiles. Despite this, her schoolmate, Mark, still likes her. She shared with him the tales of Archopolis. If Mark hasn't seen it in their exploration of the local subway system, he wouldn't have believed it was true.
The “it” they’ve seen–which Mark named Ally-leads them to the Archopolis. Series of events happened including them telling Dr. Sanders of Tatiana’s and Mark’s secret friend. But if Dr. Sanders is honorable, his nemesis in the lab is not. If Dr. Rubidio learns about their "little" secret, Ally and her loved ones will never be safe, the same way that humans will never be safe from intelligent and ferocious crocodiles out for revenge.
This is a story of adventure, discovery and arrival—and how the sacrifice of three young friends can save a lot more than an incredible secret—it can also save two species from a repeat of a war that obliterated a town and drove the crocodiles to hiding.

...a sustained tone that started as subtly as a ringing in their ears grew louder, until the entire cavern was filled with a solid note. A perfect bell could not have sounded clearer. The two stared at each other, barely breathing; Mark did not even notice when Tatiana grabbed his hand until the cold from her fingers seeped into his palm.
Smoothly, the note changed, rising up by a perfect third. Then more quickly, it slid down half an octave. Varied tones held long, snipped short, moved up and down like chimes, and continuously grew louder. At the same moment, Tatiana and Mark realized together that they were listening to a song. Invisible, something close was singing.
Suddenly, the singing stopped, and in the vacuum left by its absence, they heard a soft breath exhale. Terrified and astounded, Mark and Tatiana turned their heads towards the spring. As one, their lights captured a pair of eyes so intensely white they were pink, floating on the surface of the water. Nearly an arm's length away from the eyes, a pair of nostrils quivered in the air, inhaling. Through the water, they could see a pale shimmer, the skin so clear it was almost invisible. A pink glow of a pulsing heart; thin limbs treading slowly; and a long, long tail curling like a comet into the dark. For a moment, all three were suspended in a shining gaze. Then, with only the smallest ripple, the creature dove back down the spring and was gone.
