Supervolcano: Eruption: Harry Turtledove
Yellowstone National Park sits on a hotspot: a plume of molten rock coming up from deep inside the earth capable of volcanic eruptions far greater than any that have occurred in times past. It has been silent for many years, providing false security for a nation unprepared for the full force and fury of nature unleashed. It begins with explosions that send lava and mud flowing far beyond Yellowstone towards populated areas. Clouds of ash drift across the country, nearly blanketing the land from coast to coast. The fallout destroys crops and livestock, clogs machinery, and makes cities uninhabitable. Those who survive find themselves facing the dawn of a new ice age as temperatures plummet worldwide. Colin Ferguson is a police lieutenant in a suburb of Los Angeles, where snow is falling for the first time in decades. He fears for his family who are spread across America, refugees caught in an apocalyptic catastrophe where humanity has no choice but to rise from the ashes and recreate the world.

Sunset of the Gods: White,
Jason Thanou: a time traveller with a past and a burning mission. When the gods of ancient Greece proved to be not only monstrously real, but totally alien - and poised to dominate humanity forever - Jason took care of the situation, at least in Minoan Crete. Now he's got what looks like a normal assignment: to lead a time traveling expedition of scholars to the battle of Marathon and record for the benefit of future historians the magnificent stand of Greece's hoplite warriors against Persian invaders. But the Olympians are not done with their attempt to dominate humanity. Now the god Pan is afoot in Greece - a creature who may have the power to turn ancient Athens away from her budding democracy and toward a corrupt future on an Earth dominated by twisted humans and evil alien forces. But not if Jason can discover Pan's secret, thwart a conspiracy that stretches for millennia - and save the birthplace of democracy from the corruption of the gods.

While the tattered remains of humanity huddle underground, hiding in their virtual world, Devi prefers living topside, making dangerous hauls through the demon-infested wasteland earth has become. The wealth that comes from smuggling supplies to those shunned as summoner-born or demon-touched doesn't hurt, either. The man she meets to arrange one of those under-the-table hauls is complicated - and handsome as hell. Literally. A glimpse of the predator beneath his silver gaze and she's tempted to break her cardinal rule: never mix business with pleasure. Zel's first look at the wild-haired hauler threatens to distract him from his mission - and reminds him just how long it's been since he got laid. As the leader of an outcast settlement, he can't afford to trust too easily. Devi's got a reputation for running a tight, disciplined crew, but her very willingness to deal with him means she has something to hide.
