Sintesi dell'editore

On the eve of extinction, all seems to be lost, but there is still one final hope....

Operation Liberty has failed. Humans are losing the war. With no other option, General Kennor decides to pull back the troops and give science a second chance.

Trapped in the extensive sewer system beneath New York, Master Sergeant Reed Beckham and the survivors of First Platoon must battle through the tunnels - where they make a grisly discovery in their attempt to escape.

At Plum Island, Dr. Kate Lovato is working on a new bioweapon to destroy the Variants. But when a derelict Navy destroyer crashes into the Connecticut shoreline, she is forced to deal with a nightmare she thought had ended.

As the doomsday clock ticks down and military bases fall across the country, the human race enters the age of extinction. Will science prevail - or will mankind vanish off the face of the planet?

STILL Can't Breathe!!!

This series has been an amazing thrill ride. Book 3 is the BEST of the series so far, and I cannot wait for the next. I listened to this book straight through and loved every second. That Fitz is still my favorite character!!

No, Seriously. Don't Go in There!

First off, let me say that Bronson Pinchot is perfect for this series. He does a wonderful job making each and every character voice different and his pacing is spot on.
On to the book itself. Another fantastic novel by Smith. After reading the first 2 books in the series, I had no idea how the author could top them. Well, it is safe to say that this is the best book in the series thus far. Smith has ramped up the action, suspense, romance and even a little bit of humor to keep all of his fans and yes, even the newbies, happy. I love how the story line is easy to follow and every scenario is different from the previous. Yes, Beckham is consistently charged with taking his team into the thick of it in order to perform some impossible mission, but there is always a new outcome you don't see coming. With twists and turns, violence and gore and love and hate, there is plenty to like in this series. But will you be able to catch your breath? I'll leave it to you to find out. Can't wait to read Book 4: Extinction Evolution!!!!

Outstanding series by talented author!

Nicholas Sansbury Smith is a gifted author . I have thoroughly enjoyed his Extinction series. His sense of story pacing is outstanding. There are no sections you are tempted to skip even though you can't wait to find out what is going to happen next.

The characters are well developed. The heroes are human and honorable. You can't help but like and admire them. You can hardly wait to see the villains reap what they have sown.

I spent my weekend listening to this series. The narrator is outstanding. I could not stop listening. I so wanted to hear what the author would write next. I have also bought this series in Kindle so I can read again . Needless to say I am looking forward to his next book

Apollo!!!

Here we are at book 3, and you would think that things might slow down a little, well think again!!! In the last book, Beckham and his crew were sent into New York for Operation Liberty, but he had a bad feeling about this mission because he knew that there should have been more Variants than what were showing up on the recon mission. But where are they? They soon found out and Beckham and some of his men were left stranded in New York with only one option, to head down to the sewers to find a way out. Now we pick up with them in the sewers and what they find down there changes everything.

Meanwhile on Plum Island, Kate and Pat are trying everything to find a way to kill the Variants. With live specimens on the Island, it will hopefully only be a matter of time. But she knows in her heart that the only way to kill them may be another bio weapon. Will she be able to do the unthinkable.

But that's not all!!! A seemingly abandoned Navy destroyer crashes into the Connecticut shoreline and with resources dwindling on the Island. A team is sent to investigate and retrieve anything they find. What they do find, is something they thought was eradicated!

I have to say, these books are one heck of a roller coaster. It's pretty much non stop and this one even more so. Beckham and some of his team are left in New York and head to the sewers. During this my heart was in my mouth because I couldn't see how they could get out of it. But it's Beckham!! He even manages to find a survivor, Meg, badly wounded but alive. Then the author says... that's not enough and proceeds to send a certain team to the abandoned Naval Destroyer where they find....., I'm not going to say because it would be a spoiler!! ;) Needless to say, the team are stretched to their limits and it all seems hopeless.

One thing I love about the series is the characters. There are some of the most memorable ones I've ever read. I love Beckham, he is such an amazing person and always tries to do what's right no matter what. I also love Kate, she is smart, brave and strong. Then we have Horn, Riley, Fitz and of course Apollo! All are so well written and developed that you can't help but root for them. Apollo is the best though. Such an amazing dog!! Can't wait to read more about him,

This is without a doubt an action packed, addicting, entertaining and engrossing read. I'm listening to each back to back and finding it hard to put them down, because there isn't a good place to pause them. Something is happening all the time and I need to see what happens next, which leads to me staying up way too late and being tired, but it's so worth it. I am deep into book 4 already and absolutely loving it!!! Well worth the credits!!!

Bronson Pinchot was once again amazing. He has these characters down perfectly and nails the whole performance. I was captivated and enthralled the whole way through.

Just needed a punch

As soon as I met this one character, I just wanted him to get a punch in the face. You'll know exactly who I mean immediately too.

Very good story and satisfying ending. A lot of action and fighting with a lot of depth to the story. Narrator was great.

Series must be read in order!

Other than noting that Book 3 of the Extinction Cycle is the best yet and observing that the author and narrator both do a great job, Ill delay additional comments I have listened to Extinction Evolution (Book 4).

Book 5 in the series will be titled Extinction End. Amazon shows the release date for the Kindle version as February 29 (in three weeks). Audible does not list the audiobook yet, but I am aware that the audiobook is scheduled to be released on March 15, 2016, so Audible will have it up on their website soon.
.
Meanwhile Super Bowl 50 is tomorrow and I plan to watch my hometown Carolina Panthers celebrate their upcoming victory over the Denver Broncos!
