Alec wanders separately from the others for days as they look for each other. Lindenbrook, Karla and Hans find that the underground chambers play tricks on their eyes and ears, with the strange acoustics and the half-light confusing their sense of direction.
 
Alec wanders separately from the others for days as they look for each other. Lindenbrook, Karla and Hans find that the underground chambers play tricks on their eyes and ears, with the strange acoustics and the half-light confusing their sense of direction.
Alec, meanwhile, descends through sweltering salt caverns where, unable to stand the heat, he removes most of his clothes. Eventually he stumbles across Count Saknussem, who offers him food and water. Alec sees the body of the Count's servant, who has just died of "too much heat, too much load and too much fear." The Count orders Alec to pick up his servant's burden, which he refuses to do. Angered, the Count mocks the nearly-naked Alec, stating that he is not in any position to claim pride, and lectures him about trespassing in "his domain". Alec goes to walk away, but the Count shoots him in the arm with his revolver. The reverberating sound of the shot allows Lindenbrook, Madam Goteborg and Hans to locate them. The joy of the reunion is short-lived, however, as the Count holds them all at gunpoint. He tells the others to go back, leaving Hans behind to serve him. Lindenbrook pretends to agree, then tricks and disarms him. They debate on what to do with him: They all agree he is guilty of murder and mayhem, but they are all too civilized to do away with him or leave him behind to die. They reluctantly allow him to join their group.

====The Subterranean Sea====
 
They continue on their journey for many weeks, growing increasingly deshevelled and running short of supplies. One day they enter a forest of mushrooms. Some are as large as trees, but Alec finds smaller ones that are edible, and everyone is grateful for a change in diet. While the others rest, Count Saknussem goes off exploring beyond the forest. He returns briefly, ordering Hans to build a raft, then leaves again. Lindenbrook follows him, and finds out that Sankussem has discovered a vast underground ocean. To continue their journey they most cross it - hence the need for a raft. They construct a raft from the stalks of the giant mushrooms and are about to set sail when they are attacked by giant fin-backed lizards that live on the beach. Hans manages to severely wound one of them with a spear, and the other lizards immediately turn on it to devour it. With the lizards rapt in their feeding frenzy, the party escapes onto the subterranean sea.
