He was saved at the last minute by a message from his brother to get out of the building. He almost made it out unscathed, but he was injured in the explosion and buried under some rubble. He was then rescued by an unnamed party, who carried him to the Hollows, an underground city where people can essentially live as outcasts and exiles.

Alex has been presumed dead for weeks, and Ellie has been tipped off that Alex is alive and being kept in the Hollows. She and Lewis manage to find a secret way in, but they don’t know what to expect. People who go down there
