The worst of nature and the worst of science will bring the human race to the brink of extinction...
Master Sergeant Reed Beckham has led his Delta Force Team, codenamed Ghost, through every kind of hell imaginable and never lost a man. When a top secret Medical Corps research facility goes dark, Team Ghost is called in to face their deadliest enemy yet--a variant strain of Ebola that turns men into monsters.
After barely escaping with his life, Beckham returns to Fort Bragg in the midst of a new type of war. As cities fall, Team Ghost is ordered to keep CDC virologist Dr. Kate Lovato alive long enough to find a cure. What she uncovers will change everything.
Total extinction is just on the horizon, but will the cure be worse than the virus?
Self-publishing sensation and USA Today bestseller Nicholas Sansbury Smith comes to Orbit with the first book in his 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
After impressive sales as self-published e-books, the Extinction novels are finally making their mass market debut. Smith has realized that the way to rekindle interest in zombie apocalypse fiction is to make it louder, longer, and bloodier. This first volume narrates the disastrous escape of a bioweapon that combines the worst features of Ebola with a drug the U.S. Army developed to create supersoldiers. Infected people mutate into cunning, fast-moving, ravenously carnivorous monsters. As the virus spreads and society collapses, the story focusses on rugged, sensitive Master Sgt. Reed Beckham, leader of Delta Force Team Ghost, and beautiful, brilliant Dr. Kate Lovato, whom Beckham rescues from the besieged Center for Disease Control in Atlanta so that she can continue trying to find a way to fight the swarms of infected. Smith intensifies the disaster efficiently as the pages flip by, and readers who enjoy juicy blood-and-guts action will find a lot of it here.
I got so hooked on the book I literally finished it in 5 days. It had me captivated by everything. Especially the ghost team !! What an amazing bunch of elite soldiers. It was a roller coaster of emotion from been happy to sad and excitement. I recommend this book
Exciting and thrilling!!
Wow! A Scientific Based Zombie Apocalypse
I don’t typically read Zombie books, but took a chance on Extinction Horizons and wow, I wasn’t disappointed! Unlike many zombie apocalypse books and even movies, Nicholas Sansbury Smith provides a scientific explanation of how people are mutated into variants (Zombies) and provides characters which are complex and well-developed, which brings the story to life!
I highly recommend if you like intelligent, well-written books that packs action, plot twists, and a great storyline, this is it!
