When government scientists try to tap the center of the Earth for new and cheap forms of energy, they accidentally create a fissure deep below the Earth’s mantle, unleashing a wave of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions across the Pacific Northwest that threatens to destroy all life on Earth. Now Jake Addams will have to lead a team deep underground, narrowly avoiding underground earthquakes, rivers of lava and pools of acid in order to seal the fissure before it is too late.
