Noah and Emma Burton have traded the sand and surf of their Hawaiian home for a chilly stay in Alaska, and Noah isn't happy about it. His father may be a volcano expert, but why did they have to travel to the coldest, grayest place on earth when there are millions of volcanoes near Honolulu? Noah thinks he's in for the most boring vacation of his life.

Now Noah, Emma, and their new neighbour Alex must fight to survive rivers of molten lava and clouds of toxic ash if they want to make it off the island alive . . .
