Volcanoes are the source of minerals and, as the people of A Volcanic Race are created inside the earth itself, to ensure the survival of their kind they must venture perilously close to the red-hot lava-flow of a live volcano. Young Tom wakes up from his long winter Sleep to discover he has psychic powers, but his own mother’s jealousy seems likely to prevent him developing his gift. Fortunately for Tom, his small clan of rockmen embarks on a long journey which gives him the opportunity to break free from her influence. But many dangers lie between the clan and their goal. What begins as an exciting adventure develops into a perilous race to save their own lives – and that of the baby they hope to claim as theirs. A Volcanic Race is the first in Liz Young’s Living Rock series of five books. The first four stories feature different characters whose lives connect in varying degrees. The fifth book brings them all together in a dramatic finale....

A Volcanic Race (Living Rock Book 1) Reviews
I never thought I would enjoy this style of book. Wrong! Started it and couldn't put it down. Had to, because, you know: sleep, cook, etc. I loved Liz' imagination in creating these Rockpeople, their way of life, their reproductive system, their powers. In evolutionary terms, they are between the dinosaurs and humans as we are today. They basically hunt the same animals we see on our planet, heal with nature's herbs, cook with fire. I was quickly engrossed in their whole raison d'être. Each clan lives in a different type of climate and has adapted. Even the colour of their "skin", so to speak, is different, depending on which type of volcano they come from. It is lava that flows through their veins and not blood. The names of each individual was also fun - all sorts of rocks and stones, such as Onyx, Flint, Hekla, Tomboro. I felt compelled to look up these names as some were obvious to me and others, not so much. Hekla is a stratovolcano. Now, I get Tomboro, too - you can look it up yourself!I cannot wait for Book 2 to come out because frankly, to leave me hanging like that... Still. I recommend this book for those who enjoy fantasy of a different sort.
