Publisher's Summary

Civilization exists by geologic consent, subject to change without notice.
The land beneath Yellowstone's caldera is hot.
Huffing and puffing. Moving, stretching, and bulging.
Everything has a boiling point. Yellowstone has reached the point of no return.

The Yellowstone Series, a new disaster thriller from critically acclaimed author Bobby Akart, takes the listener on a thrill ride as a cataclysmic event of extinction-level proportions ticks away like a time bomb, awaiting its moment. Millions of people visit the Yellowstone National Park every year, blissfully unaware they are on top of the greatest killer man has ever known - the Yellowstone supervolcano.

Volcanoes are the Earth's way of letting off steam. Deep beneath the surface of the planet, excess heat builds up, and it seeks a way to vent. Like an overcrowded bus on a sweltering summer day, the overheated magma stews in its own madness, eventually allowing pent-up frustrations to boil over until it releases its fury - its Inferno - upon the world above.

Yellowstone is not an ordinary volcano. It is an extraordinary killer that will show itself in due time.

The eruption of the Yellowstone supervolcano will be more than a spectacle to grab our attention. It will be the end of the world as we know it.

About the Yellowstone Series

Volcanoes are the Earth's way of letting off steam. While most people look at volcanic eruptions as natural disasters, the fact of the matter is without them, the Earth would explode. Deep beneath the surface of the planet, excess heat builds up, finding a way to vent. Like an overcrowded bus on a hot summer day, the overheated magma stews in its own madness, allowing pent-up frustrations to boil over, until it releases its fury - its hellfire - upon the world above.

Yellowstone is the most potentially explosive, violent, deadly, active volcano on our planet, and scientists agree, a catastrophic eruption is inevitable. Yellowstone is extraordinary in its potential and is quite simply Earth's greatest killer. You've been warned.

I feel dirty

The first volume of this book featured a brilliant, headstrong NASA scientist as a lead character. In this book, she is lobotomized to a lovestruck "girl" who quickly forgets about the death of loved ones when confronted with her crush. Said crush remarks to himself that such "feisty" women need to be "tamed" without "breaking their spirit." A little later, the author decides to interrupt the climactic action scene in order to have this caveman think to himself that black people who get shot by police had it coming, before giving a little violin solo for a rather one-sided account of the Oregon national park standoff some years ago.

I get that the author and I have different opinions on things. That's fine. But this series just shifted gears from science thriller to misogynistic political soap box. It's like I was watching a cool movie when someone reached over, changed the channel to Fox News, and took the batteries out of the remote.

character development fell appart

Character development fell appart in the second book, rendering the Doctor to a weak character. Author used the book as a political soap box, no issues, but detracted from the story.

bait and switch

I didn't finish the last 7ish chapters of this book and returned the 3rd without listening. Such a huge disappointment. The first book was full of science, and strong characters, and fascinating story-lines that I was excited to see how they would continue on---in short they don't, so save a credit or 3. The series went from several interesting characters to 2 that aren't very interesting at all. I was expecting Ashby to be vindicated on a national level and wind up in Washington, alas she turns into a love struck puppy dog who needs to be "tamed" (?). Jake is the hero of the book bc he has guns and a basic knowledge of first aid. It turned real boring real quick. Plus the narrator isn't great, which is ok when the story is awesome, but the juvenile tone was too much for a poor plot. I'm sad bc the series could have been so much better with many story-lines and plot points, alas, it's not worth a credit, and definitely not worth a 3rd or 4th book.

A fantastic experience and an incredibly enlightening read!!

So I am finally able to breathe once more after holding my breath throughout most of this book and the first book as well! The writing is wonderful and the message is not to be ignored.

Won't be reading anymore of this book or series.

The story is fairly good, the narration is ok. It is the over the top, might as well be on a right wing site such as the RNC, disrespect of non-MAGA views and African-Americans.

Disapointing

I really dislike books that don't resolve themselves within the book. This one just chops off. In order to get the story, you better get the entire series. Because I liked the first in the series, I picked up this one and the next two books in the series on a sale. Even though I have them, I don't know if I want to continue. The story wasn't compelling. The narrator sounded stilted.

Exciting

As the story continues you find the characters in crazy scenarios, with both people and the earth.
The narration takes away from the story though.

Great yarn about heartache and hell.

If you have ever been to Yellowstone, you'll love reminiscing, as Mr. Akart blows the park to hell. A fun apolitical read appropriate for older kids and adults.

Losing a Little Pace

Ok. Second book good but not as pacey as first and needs the introduction of some more longer term characters ... so on to the third volume...

Yes and no.

While I enjoyed this series I thought the characters had teenage personalities. It seemed more appropriate for a high school/ teenage audience. Also I feel that the books are far too short for the money I paid. I expect far more story for my money. Just getting into another book when I have to fork out another fortune for another so so story. I would love to hear the end of the story but have already spent about $50 for 3 short books. Not happy!

i wanted to like it

Empty plot, so much preaching, as usual female is usless, just painful and so much product placement.
