When a new island forms in the South Pacific after a volcanic eruption, nearby nations quarrel over who owns the fresh land. One of the countries sends an advance scouting party to plant flags and lay claim to the nascent isle, but none of that party returns. The sponsoring nation is accused of deception. Political rivals assert that members of the landing party are still on the island, building a military installation in secret.
In response, a United Nations expedition is assembled to land a second, neutral outfit comprised of scientists and humanitarian aid workers. This team is well-equipped and ready to report back to the UN in-situ about the fate of the first party. But once on the island, they discover that along with hot magma, something else has been dredged up from deep within the Earth...something alive.

Boring and Predictable
I really didn't like the characters at all. Couldn't find anyone to root for. Can't think of anything I really liked about it.
I had just listened to "Yeti" by the same author which was fantastic. I thought I'd try another by him. Unfortunately, this one is boring and the characters are unlikable. The story is too similar to so many others that have been done before that it just made me yawn. Couldn't even finish it. Disappointing!
