Nobody worried when the ground trembled beneath their feet in the bustling city of Pompeii. It was just the beast under Mt. Vesuvius, standing high above the city. It woke up angry sometimes, but always went back to sleep.
Marcus, on the other hand, is afraid. So is his father, who trusts science more than mythical beasts. One day, Vesuvius explodes into a cloud of fiery ash and rocks begin falling from the sky like rain! Will they have time to escape and survive the epic destruction of Pompeii?
