Summary

But strange as the journey may be, it's nowhere near as strange as what they will find waiting at its end. Neither Poe nor Verne had actually visited the remote Kerguelen Islands, located in the south Indian Ocean, but their works are some of the few literary (as opposed to exploratory) references to the archipelago.

    Andy and her twin brother Tony are four-wheeling in the woods near their family cabin when they notice the sky has turned a sickly shade of green. Moments later, the sky erupts into a raucous thunderstorm and they’re forced to take cover beneath an abandoned Ranger tower. When the sky grows eerily calm, they quickly get back on their four-wheelers and race home--only to find a massive funnel cloud blocking their way. The twins dodge falling trees and debris in search of shelter only to face an even bigger dilemma: is it safer to keep moving or hunker down beneath less than ideal cover?
