My eyes flew open. What is going on?! Oh, just another earthquake. That volcano is getting worse, it keeps rumbling! With a long sigh I got up. Today, the first of August, will be long since I had no sleep last night.

After breakfast I had to go to the market. I have a terrible feeling but nothing is wrong. I passed the baker, the sweet smell of fresh bread that made my mouth water filled the air - and my lungs.

Then, of course, as soon as I let my guard down there was another earthquake! I tried to grab something to stop me falling but came up empty handed. Instead some man - the baker I guessed - grabbed my arm. Thank you Lord!

Once it stopped he let me go and wandered back to his shop - or what was left of it - as it was now just rocks and corpses. I picked up the messages and ran back home. My Mum was there. As soon as she saw me she left and so I started to cook lunch. Again.

It was dark outside. Too dark. Like nighttime. Something was wrong. I felt sick, really sick and then it happened. There was a loud noise as the earth shook. It lasted for several minutes. I was not worried, no one was. Until the sky turned red that was.

I ran outside and my heartbeat and breathing stopped. The sky was red and rocks were flying everywhere! My heart started to beat at double its normal speed but I had more things to worry about. Like the rocks covered in fire flying towards me.

The first flew past me. The second one hit my arm. I screamed as my arm flew back. I was losing consciousness. The last thing I saw was lava coming my way...

Wilbur Jasin: I liked the book. The story is great. The author really did some quite research to come up with something like this. The book needs some editing but otherwise, it's a great read. Can't wait for the second book.

Deidre L. Swain: I understood where the story was going but the writing skills were lacking a lot. There are some places that had no flow. The plot was good which is what kept me reading the whole story. I think the author shows promise. They just need to tighten up on their skills to really get it going

sujitha nair: What's so distinct about this story was that it could easily be real.Praveena can be your classmate, neighbor or that girl you saw at the coffee shop today. The important decisions she makes and the dilemmas she faces, remind us of our own twisted lives.

Tina Hacker: Lindsey Martin=Bowen blends humor with satiric takes on modern life. Her characters are introduced seamlessly and tell the reader their stories--if we can read them between laughs! I hesitate to write exactly what she parodies but anyone reading her book will know in a minute. Just think large-...

Silver: Its a very good story you have here. Felicity´s ability is interesting and original, I love it. The setting of a hostpital was a good choice, especially since we get the scene with the other interns, gives it a very real feel. There wasnt much plot for me to rate, so I´ll update as the story prog...
