Beneath the Pacific Ocean, a volcano surges upward, carrying in its fiery heart a mineral more powerful than uranium. When the volcano breaks the ocean's surface, America and other nations will battle to control what is known as Vulcan's Forge, a source of limitless, clean, nuclear power.

The secret of Vulcan's Forge begins to unravel when Mercer, a man of many talents now working for the United States Geologic Survey, learns that the daughter of an old friend is in danger. Saving her takes Mercer from the Oval Office to a secret submarine off Hawaii. On the islands, the secession movement, controlled by a megalomaniac Japanese multimillionaire, has turned violent, and the United States trembles on the brink of civil war.

    " The beginning and the end of the book are lame. The middle is OK. Glad I finished. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gregj | 2/13/2014

    " I would give this book 3.5 stars. Pretty much a rip-off of Clive Cussler's Dirk Pitt novels, I don't mind so much however because the author does it well. I will read another of his books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Crafty4life | 2/11/2014

    " Pretty good adventure. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Highlander1 | 2/3/2014

    " Boring. Very slow novel. Frequent use of poor language. Got past page 50 then threw it away. Almost zero action. I had higher expectations for this novel and author based on the endorsements by Clive Cussler. Stick with Cussler. Forget DuBrul. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adam | 1/17/2014

    " I read The Medusa Stone first and loved it. This, the first in the Mercer series seemed a little bit heavy with hard facts and didn't flow as smoothly as Medusa. The info was key to the story and brilliantly conceived but didn't fit well for me. The parts with Mercer were amazing. Du Brul has created a character that I love and I will definitely read every book in this series. All in all 3 stars for the story and 5 stars for Mercer (I'm throwing Harry in too). Mercer kicks ass! Looking forward to book 2 in the series. "

    " Abridged Audio Book version. Your'e kidding me; right? The whole plot was bogus. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sheldon Lehman | 1/11/2014

    " It was very well written. I can see why Cussler chose him to co-write one of his series; it's a similar style story. If I had to nit-pick, it would be that he introduced a secondary character that was present in the story until page 132, then we don't hear from her again for 200 pages. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tammy K. | 12/29/2013

    " At times a bit too graphic for my personal preference. This is clearly a book written to flatter the male ego. I do not know if I would read more of this writers books. The plot was good but the main character was (in my view)too sexist. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe Ganzi | 12/22/2013

    " Excellent! Really enjoying du Brul's books, definitely my favorite "techno-thriller" author! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robin | 11/30/2013

    " It had a really interesting start, but slowed down right after the first few chapters. Eventually, it returned to a steady pace. Overall this was a fairly decent read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Loyd | 9/23/2013

    " Have not read any of Mr. Du Brul's work before. Picked this up at a second hand store. It was a bit of a slow starter for me, but gained speed fairly quickly. It's very "Clive Cussler"-esque. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gregory Saunders | 9/9/2013

    " Excellent premise and very good character development. Convoluted plot that has a couple of cool twists. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Richard | 9/3/2013

    " Fast paced, somewhat confusing with almost too many coincidences and total guesses by our hero which turn out right. Beware a totally unnecessary graphic sex scene involving 14yo girl ... we knew he was evil okay? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anandh Sundar | 4/30/2013

    " Will Hawii secede from USA? The book initially seems to kick up anti Jap sentiment, but then the twists in the plot make it worth the read. The ending seems huriedly written(therefore losing a star) but otherwise a good book "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dan Kinkade | 3/10/2013

    " I like the geologist as a hero angle, much in the same vein as Clive Cussler novels...entertaining. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 2/11/2013

    " great action adventure books. I have read all of Jack Du Brul past books and am currently reading his latest. The main character is Phillip Mercer. These books are historical fictions, very over the top but fun as you wait to see if Mercer can save the world. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mason | 2/9/2013

    " I have read most of the Dirk Pitt novels by Clive Cussler. Clive Cussler says this author is very good and he is. This was his first book and it is exciting. Move over Dirk Pitt, Phillip Mercer is on the move. I would recommend this author to anyone who likes Clive Cussler. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Peter Liu | 12/19/2012

    " Entertaining airplane read if you have nothing else to do, which is why I bought the book. I should have finished it on the plane instead of dragging it out. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karla | 11/27/2012

    " Adventure, intrigue, and political. Mercer character: geologist, somewhat complicated plot line. Plan to read another of books to see if any different. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cris | 10/30/2012

    " It was a fairly typical example of a action/adventure thriller. Not particularly well-written. "
