About The Book
Mount Vesuvius is ready to erupt, threatening to destroy the city of Pompeii and everyone who lives there. Will new friends Thalia and Felix be able to escape, or are they destined to be buried under rock and ash?
Thalia is excited to visit the bustling city of Pompeii, while Felix longs to leave it. As Thalia prepares to perform with her traveling troupe of actors, Felix is searching for a life of adventure away from his strict, politician father. Despite living such different lives, when their paths cross, they quickly become friends.
Meanwhile, deep in the heart of Mount Vesuvius, a lethal fire is brewing. In its shadow, Pompeii awaits total destruction. The ground shakes, and the mountain rumbles. But when the volcano roars and clouds of ash rain down upon the city, will Thalia and Felix manage to escape one of the deadliest natural disasters in history?
