In the fight for humanity, one final hope remains...
Humans are losing the war. Master Sergeant Reed Beckham and the survivors of 1st Platoon must battle through the tunnels--where they make a grisly discovery.
Dr. Kate Lovato is working on a new bioweapon to destroy the Variants when a derelict Navy Destroyer crashes into the Connecticut shoreline carrying yet another threat.
As the doomsday clock ticks down and military bases fall across the country, the human race enters the age of extinction. Will they prevail--or will mankind vanish off the face of the planet?
The third book in self-publishing sensation and USA Today bestselling author Nicholas Sansbury Smith's propulsive post-apocalyptic series about a soldier's mission to save the world.
The Extinction Cycle:
Book 1: Extinction HorizonBook 2: Extinction EdgeBook 3: Extinction AgeBook 4: Extinction EvolutionBook 5: Extinction EndBook 6: Extinction Aftermath
This blood-drenched sequel to Extinction Horizon shows the perils of good intentions. Billions of humans became carnivorous when a U.S. military attempt to develop unstoppable supersoldiers went haywire. Dr. Kate Lovato developed a virus intended to wipe out the creatures; it killed most of them, but millions of "variants" survived. Now they're mutating, becoming more threatening physically and mentally. They've even become smart enough to ambush the overconfident soldiers sent to retake America's cities. Special Forces Master Sgt. Reed Beckham, Kate's lover, is part of that mission, and the novel ends with him trapped in the ruins of New York. The only thing that may save him is that the Extinction series has at least five more books to go. Smith is ingenious in evolving the threat and escalating the action, but after a while the reader becomes numb to the ultraviolence.
Awesome book! This one has action and keeps you hooked throughout the book. The last few chapters are a roller coaster. I loved it all, awesome ending. Can't wait for the next one, to see how Kyptonite works. :)
If you're a Marine, don't bother.
"Soldier" and "Marine" are not colloquialisms.
Also, good thing it's fiction or else the Marine Corps would really be useless.
He’s done it again!
Each time I think there’s no way Nicholas Smith can outdo the previous story in his awesome series, he proves me wrong. As the Variants continue to evolve, little glimmers of hope for mankind dwindle. Of the three books I've read so far, this is certainly the darkest and most visceral. I was holding my breath, worried that he might kill off Fitz or Apollo. The author has an exceptional gift for storytelling combined with some of the strongest characterization I've ever read. Bravo!
