Lost World, is a political thriller with a twist: the protagonist is a strong, female pacifist. Tessa Thurston is enjoying a pre-wedding vacation with her fiancÚ Corbin Carswell at a five-star resort, when a series of simultaneous terrorist attacks occur across the US. Tessa is touring the underground bunker of The Lost Springs Resort, when the bunker--a supposedly decommissioned safe site utilized by the Vice President in the event of war--locks down, trapping Tessa with a few of her friends and handsome tour guide Sam Houston. Tessa and Sam soon discover that there is a second, secret part of the bunker where a covert militia has been training for a political takeover opportunity, such as these terrorist attacks. Tessa must fight for what she believes in when she learns that her beloved Corbin isn't just a wealthy banker, but a key figure in an international plan to strip the US of her power and create a New World Order.
