Anastasia, she's a kind hearted, friendly and somewhat of a tomboy, a cheerful, funny young girl.

Summarize the story: Include PROBLEM/CONFLICT, Main Events and CONCLUSION

While on vacation, Joe and Eddie are intrigued by the bubbling mud pools and gushing geysers in landscape around the lake where they're staying. They meet local volcanologist Rocky, who tells them about the cataclysmic 1886 eruption of Mt Tarawera.

But Joe's fascination turns to unease when ghostly sightings of the 'phantom waka' and other appearances on the lake and rumblings, earthquakes and strange messages from an unknown number on facebook are all hinting that Mount Tarawera might erupt...Can he persuade Rocky, who puts his faith only in science, to sound a warning? Would he be able to save everyone in time? Would he be able to survive?.. It's mine to know and yours to find out.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

This book grips you and kind of drags you into it, the book is just fabulous, with a great storyline, fascinating and quirky characters and most of all, the mysterious ghosts I would definitely recommend this book to a friend, this book has just as good of a storyline, or maybe even better than it's series starter. This book is so good I would probably want to buy this and re-read it just for fun.I'd definitely recommend this to others, especially mystery and horror book seekers.
