Chaiten, a long-dormant volcano in Chile, fuses the destinies of two microbiologists, a celebrity scientist, and a Nobel Prize-winning scientist who waits for the one sign that his diabolical plan is about to be put into motion. For the Earth has become a pawn in the biggest gamble ever played with humanity's future - and Chaiten is about to blow.
I'm not going to say anything here about the book or the story because I'm the author. I do want to say that I just listened to Mark Boyett's reading of my novel, and couldn't be more pleased! The level of emotion he brings to my work is just fantastic. He really nailed the characters, and his accents are so much fun. I could happily listen to him all day - and just did! 5 stars for Mark - a truly excellent narrator.

I enjoy reading this author's work. Dionne continues her series in fine style. I won't write any spoilers, but I really like her character Phillip Dumas and his role in the book. The writing is tight and the dialogue masterful! I thoroughly enjoyed this novel and hope to see more!

Once again when man tries to control or manipulate nature, nature fights back and wins. This story is the opposite of Freeze Point but not only in temperature. However the action intrigue and all out life or death struggle have the same gripping intensity. This author has a wonderful grasp of nature and science with the ability to combine it with heart-stopping action. Both books are well worth the time!!
I enjoy thrillers, and found this story fast-paced and entertaining at first, but the characters kind of rubbed me the wrong way. Most of the main charactesr were too liberal for my tastes and the eco-preaching got on my nerves. I sympathize with the message, but at the same time, I read fiction to be entertained, not to be told how often we are destroying the earth even if it may be true.
