Rain Of Fire

by: Linda Jacobs

Book 2 in the Yellowstone Series

The world’s largest volcano does not reside beneath Hawaii’s mountains, or in Washington state, but Yellowstone National Park. Past eruptions have darkened our continent and covered it with a blanket of ash that smothered both plant and animal life. Now the supervolcano, with its earthquakes and geysers, is monitored on a daily basis for signs of the beast reawakening.

Born a university brat and trained at the Master’s level in Geology, Linda was one of Exxon Corporation’s first woman field geologists. Before her recent move to New Mexico, she worked for a number of oil and gas companies on the front line where new fields are found.

Fiction came to her when she was very young. Already an avid reader, she’d hit a ball against a wall and tell herself stories. By age eleven, she taught herself to hunt and peck on her Dad’s old Royal Typewriter. Despite the spotty ribbon, she started writing novels. A cathartic burning ceremony her senior year of high school fortunately prevents Linda, or anyone else, knowing just how awful her early work was. Her love affair with the Yellowstone region began when she did Geology Field Camp near the park. She has since visited many times, studying the archives of the park’s natural history and man’s brief tenure there. Her debut release from Medallion, Summer Of Fire, is about firefighters at the Yellowstone fires of ´88 and is the first in her women’s adventure series set in Yellowstone. The second, Rain Of Fire, was published by Medallion Press in June 2006 ... followed by Lake Of Fire in October 2007. Linda also writes romance as Christine Carroll for Medallion Press. Married to fellow geologist Richard Jacobs, with whom she owns a consulting company, Linda divides her time between the West and the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. They both enjoy adventure travel, having scuba dived the Caribbean, taken two African safaris, and gone alpine hiking in New Zealand and the Spanish Pyrenees.

The world’s largest volcano does not reside beneath Hawaii’s mountains, or in Washington state, but Yellowstone National Park. Past eruptions have darkened our continent and covered it with a blanket of ash that smothered both plant and animal life. Now the supervolcano, with its earthquakes and geysers, is monitored on a daily basis for signs of the beast reawakening.

As a terrified child, geologist Kyle Stone watched her family die in the 1959 Hebgen Lake Earthquake near Yellowstone. Fighting a lifetime of fears, she is one of the scientists with a finger on Yellowstone’s pulse. When a new hot spring appears overnight in the park and a noted naturalist is scalded to death, Kyle mounts an expedition into the Yellowstone backcountry to unravel the mystery. Accompanying her are Ranger Wyatt Ellison, former student and friend, and Dr. Nicholas Darden, volcanologist and former lover. More than just a volcano is heating up.

Amid personal conflict, earthquakes uprooting the land, and poison gases killing wildlife, Kyle finds herself in the unenviable position of convincing park officials to evacuate Yellowstone before tens of thousands of people die. As the earth shudders, Kyle must also choose between past and present, and defeat her darkest terror simply to survive.
