Pair 1, Book 2: Trails Through the Volcano
Time: Modern, 1 month later
POV characters: Amber, Alex, Livia, Corbo
Communication has been cut off. There is no power, phone service, with little gas reserved for military missions. Most people have been evacuated to the north. Amber and Alex are expected to continue to survey the damage, and make sure those who remained behind are safe. Yellowstone’s impending rupture will lead to an impending year-long winter, and global cooling for a generation, or more. Without seeds, farming techniques, and other life skills long forgotten, those who remain won’t survive the coming year. Along the way, they meet desperate men, and rescue three small children.
Livia and Corbo have a mission of their own in Arizona. Corbo’s birth father is missing. His fate unknown. Without power, or gas, they have to try to find him. Other’s needs get in the way. Including a stop at nuclear power plant to be sure it is safely deactivated. And rescuing zoo animals. Everyone thought Arizona would be forever safe from earthquakes, volcanoes, and shifting water tables. Only, they aren’t. Together, they must build a future in a tangled environment of fear and desolation.
A Lost Paragraph:
A paragraph in the wrong chapter:
With her mom, Brandon, and Karen too far away, Amber knew what her mother would do; create her own new family. Tam and Joe would be a start. Even though she didn’t know as much about biology as she did geology, Alex would be a good friend, and a perfect biological father for her children.
