Five years after the eruption of the Yellowstone supervolcano altered the world's atmosphere (Supervolcano: Eruption), the survivors, including police officer Colin Ferguson and his scattered family, scramble to survive on a daily basis while dreaming of rebuilding civilization. After solving a sensational crime involving a serial killer, Ferguson welcomes the chance for more routine, though equally complex crimes. Meanwhile, in a New England locked into an almost continuous winter, young musician Rob Ferguson finds he enjoys the reality of a simpler but harder lifestyle, and Vanessa Ferguson strives to put her life back together after time spent in refugee camps. VERDICT Turtledove has a knack for creating well-rounded characters who epitomize the time he describes, whether in works of alternative history or speculative fiction. Series fans and readers who clamor for "disaster" novels should enjoy this ongoing chronicle of a possible future.
