This is a great read, and you learn a lot about volcanic activiity without really realizing it. I loved this book. I had not read Freezing Point, prior to being given this book to read and review, but believe me it is now at the top of my "to read" list. I loved the action and suspense in this novel. It isn't often that we get a glimpse into the differing scientific views on any subject. The author definitely knows what she is writing about, and this book shows it. I recommend this to anyone that likes suspense with a brain.

Way too slow for me.

The book's description makes it seem a lot more exciting than it was. The action seems drawn out and I found it hard to connect with any of the characters as there really were no "good guys" or "bad guys" per se'. Even the plot itself was misleading as the "bad guy" never really seems likely to accomplish his "evil" plot. Overall, Freezing Point was a much better read.

Loved this book - kept me on the edge of my seat - or should I say, "on the edge of a volcano"? If you love volcanoes, you'll love this book!
