When the Utah Institute Director Professor Stanton suffers a debliitating stroke, he wants geologist Kyle Stone to replace him. Instead ambitios Dr. Hollis Delbert pulls a stunt and takes charge. He removes Kyle's earthquake reading equipment slated for Yellowstone, which has had some activity of late, and uses it for his study of the Salt Lake area though that has been inudated with equipment since just before the 2002 Winter Olympics. Still she defies Hollis and brings some portables to the area where her parents died in 1959 when she was a little girl. Desperate for help, she turns to her former lover volcanologist Dr. Nicholas Darden, who assists her with some of his equipment. As the tremors increase, Hollis manipulates the Institute brass leading to Kyle's firing even as Ranger Wyatt Ellison and Nicholas heat the air as much as the geo-thermal activities do the ground as they compete for her affection. RAIN OF FIRE is an exciting thriller that grips the audience with the tremors that threaten Yellowstone at a time when there seems to be an increase of major natural disasters. The story line is action-packed but driven by the rivalry between Hollis and Kyle in which he behaves totally unprofessonally while she is absolutely dedicated. The romantic triangle is deftly handled, but the tale is more a cautionary thriller warning people about the potential of natural disaster in a place where most people fail to realize the danger.

I really enjoyed reading this book. I hesitated to get it because I knew from the description that it had different characters from those in the first book (SUMMER OF FIRE), and I wasn't certain that Jacobs could make this one measure up to the first while introducing new characters, especially since I'd become attached to the characters in the first book. The three main characters in this book (along with their interactions with one another) are actually very similar to those in the first, but there are enough differences that you won't mistake one for the other. The story itself is exciting. In some ways, even more so than the first. Like with SUMMER OF FIRE, I feel that this book would benefit from maps of the region and other visual aids. There are also flashback sequences in this one that you kind of fall into, just like in the first, but I've grown accustomed to her writing style, and perhaps they were better handled, so they didn't take me out of the story as much as they did previously. Over all, this is a great book. The trilogy seems life one that could be read out of order, but there were a few little gems in this one that I wouldn't have appreciated as much of I hadn't read SUMMER OF FIRE first. I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes movies such as TWISTER and DANTE'S PEAK. I also want to note that reading this series is making me want to visit Yellowstone, myself.

Throughly enjoyed the fast pace and factual accounts of the area in this "can't put it down" novel. This is a must read for anyone living in the Yellowstone area. It will make you want to do your own geological research of your home turf no matter where you live. A fun, exciting, and interesting read. Don't miss this one!
