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, 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 US 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, a secessionist movement has turned violent and the US trembles on the brink of a civil war, while behind the scenes, shadowy figures jockey for control of the emerging volcano.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeff | 2/15/2014

    " This was a well written and entertaining book. The only reason for three stars is because I have already read another one of his books and the plots are similar. Don't get me wrong it is definitely a different story but.... the basic plot is the same.... Guy saves girl... then saves world... then gets the girl... very James Bond-ish. Very entertaining. "

    " This is Jack Du Brul's first book, introducing readers to Philip Mercer, a geologist working as an independent contractor for the USGS, who is brought into the world of intregue with a telegram from a dead friend that saved his life earlier, asking for his assistance to save his daughter. The story unfolds drawing us into his story, introduces us to Harry White & Tiny who will appear in future stories as well. All in all the story draws the reader in and holds your attention, making it very hard to put down. It is very well developed and cohesive, a good read. "

    " Pretty good adventure. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adam | 1/19/2014

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mason | 1/14/2014

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shaft | 1/7/2014

    " Great exciting read would definitely recommend it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sheldon Lehman | 12/31/2013

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lunasea | 12/16/2013

    " The hero drinks too much for my comfort, but the story was intertaning enough. The pseudo science could be a bit much, I skimmed over some of it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karla | 12/10/2013

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

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dan Kinkade | 11/22/2013

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

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robin | 8/19/2013

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe Ganzi | 6/2/2013

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

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tammy K. | 4/3/2013

    " 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 Jennifer | 3/5/2013

    " 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. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cris | 8/2/2012

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

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Logan Weatherly | 3/17/2012

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

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gitta | 10/7/2011

    " Love this author and his stand-alone books. Wish he would write more on his own and not as a co-author of cuddlier books. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Highlander1 | 8/13/2011

    " 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. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Richard | 6/29/2011

    " 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 Loyd | 5/7/2011

    " 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 Sheldon | 4/2/2011

    " 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 Peter | 7/24/2009

    " 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. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cris | 9/5/2008

He collects zeppelin memorabilia, and when not writing or traveling he can be found in a favorite chair with a book and a brandy. He lives in Burlington,Vermont.
