The earth rumbles. Fire flows in molten rivers. The day sky is as black as ash. It’s beyond a warning. The end is already here.
Impassioned environmental activist Emily Booth lost a lot for her beliefs–including her son, Caleb, in a bitter custody battle, and the loyalty of her father, the avaricious owner of Global Oil. Just when it couldn’t get worse, she discovers with the aid of former analyst Matthew Cooper that her father’s clean drilling record is a sham. When the company’s state-of-the-art laser drill accidently reaches a dangerous mass of magma, it unleashes a series of tremors that rock the small town of Maple Glen. Then, the unthinkable becomes a reality—a volcanic eruption that blackens the sky in ash, spreading panic and death and trapping young Caleb in the devastation.
But as Matthew fears, this is just the beginning of a domino effect that carries catastrophic worldwide implications—a connected volcanic system stretching from Yellowstone to Indonesia that, in a perfect storm of eruptions, could literally wipe out the planet. As Emily struggles to find her son, Matthew figures out how to stop the global eruptions already starting to rumble across the world: puncture a new hole with sonic explosions and channel the magma into the ocean. It’s a suicide mission, but it’s the only answer to an Extinction Level Event only hours away from swallowing the Earth.
The planet rocks in RING OF FIRE. It’s not just an explosive new disaster miniseries, but a terrifying and all too plausible end-of-the-world warning.
