The New York Times bestselling author and “maven of alternate history” (San Diego Union-Tribune) presents a near-future thriller.

A supervolcanic eruption in Yellowstone Park sends lava and mud flowing toward populated areas, and clouds of ash drifting across the country. The fallout destroys crops and livestock, clogs machinery, and makes cities uninhabitable. Those who survive find themselves caught in an apocalyptic catastrophe in which humanity has no choice but to rise from the ashes and recreate the world.

    " The meat of the story was kind of anti climactic and it took forever to get to the erruption. I just like Harry Turtledove's writing style. "

    " so glad to be finished with this book. everyone is so negative and cocky. I finally just skimmed over the last few pages so i could finish the book and see how it ends. the story line could have been good, but turned out to be just ok. "

    " This book is a real disappointment. The premise has so much promise. Honestly, I only finished the book so I could give it 1 star. The story is about a seriously dysfunctional family with 3 kids who should not have been allowed to reach puberty with a vague background of the Supervolcano. No matter how much potential this story could have had don't waste you time. "

    " Save your money. If you are a fan of Turtledove you will read this regardless. It not that good. The title and description come across as a PAW (Post apocalyptic) epic. the Author spends too much time detailing the lives of the ancillary characters and not enough time on the main plot of the book. If a Super-Volcano disaster is what you are looking for this is not it. Save your money and read some of the Free Paw fiction (about Volcano's) found online, for Free! "
