Kaiju Storm (Kaiju Winter #2) by Jake Bible (2014)
The Yellowstone supervolcano has erupted and out of the massive chasm of its smoldering caldera came the kaiju- giant monsters bent on destroying everything in sight! Federal Marshal Lu Morgan and her ragtag group of survivors and government agents fought hard to stay alive and defeat the massive monsters, but now a second eruption has sent things even more deadly flying up into the ash cloud that covers the land.
The US government, the survivors of the eruption, and a team of scientists must fight a new evil that falls from the sky and turns animals, and people, into grotesque creatures bent on killing every living thing in their path. It is a race against time, and a race for survival, as all involved struggle to find answers as to where the monsters came from and how to stop them.
If stopping them is even possible!
Kaiju Winter (Kaiju Winter #1) by Jake Bible (2014)
The Yellowstone super volcano has begun to erupt, sending North America into chaos and the rest of the world into panic. People are dangerous and desperate to escape the oncoming mega-eruption, knowing it will plunge the continent, and the world, into a perpetual ashen winter. But no matter how ready humanity is, nothing can prepare them for what comes out of the ash: Kaiju!

A bit of Science fiction mixed horror, adventure and lots of action.
It’s big monsters vs humanity. No single protagonist here, but a mix of scientists and law officers. There are a few nasty people, notably an FBI agent with a control problem who has been tracking down his son. And a criminal who gets out and teams up with civilians. Plus rednecks and an insane (who could guess) president.
Titled “Chillaxing”, which is a portmanteau of “Chidi” and “relaxing”.
Eleanor and Michael are feeling smug about the state of their new experiment. Chidi is teaching moral philosophy, so three new humans will have enough points to convince the Judge to change the rules for the afterlife.
Instead, they’re startled to discover a laid-back, fun-loving Chidi.
He’s not crippled by indecisiveness, nor does he particularly want to spend an eternity teaching Brent how to be a better person.
Eleanor and Michael realize that they left a key ingredient out of this reboot: Chidi isn’t being tortured, even a little, so he feels no urgency to do anything.
So Jason is sent in to stir things up. He does a great job. Now Chidi is anxious and worried. It seems that the strategy is working and things are back on track.
But wait, who’s that coming down the railway line, dressed in a dark cape ???
