Publisher's Summary

A bioweapon designed to save the world...
A scientific discovery that will alter human history...
And a new threat that will bring humanity to the Edge of Exctinction.
The dust from Dr. Kate Lovato's bioweapon has settled. Projections put death counts in the billions. Her weapon was supposed to be the endgame, but it turned a small percentage of those infected with the Hemorrhage Virus into something even worse.
Survivors call them Variants. Irreversible epigenetic changes have transformed them into predators unlike any the human race has ever seen. And they are evolving.
With the doomsday clock ticking, the fractured military plans Operation Liberty - a desperate mission designed to take back the cities and destroy the Variant threat. Master Sergeant Reed Beckham agrees to lead a strike team into New York City, but first he must return to Fort Bragg to search for the only family he has left.
At Plum Island, Kate discovers Central Command may have considerably underestimated the Variant population in New York. As Operation Liberty draws closer, Kate warns Beckham that Team Ghost won't just face their deadliest adversary yet - they may be heading into a trap.

I have been called an aficionado in the zombie genre for the sheer number of books I've read and reviewed, and now written. The one thing many will here me say over and over again is that I prefer a traditional zombie. Mutations, aliens, and a strong sci-fi theme has never been my thing.

So I really have to hand it to Smith for taking me well out of my comfort zone and earning my five stars.

Smith's zombies are terrifying. Multifaceted genetic mutations crafted by the callus hand of man where the only thing you can count on with these abominations is that you have no idea what they'll do next. Smith continues to up the ante with his second book in his bestselling Extinction series and I'm left hungry for more.

A successful z-book for me must have ample gore, and Smith doesn't disappoint. Buy this book. Tell your friends to buy this book. For those who say zombies aren't trending anymore, i dare you to read this series and reevaluate that statement.

And now, to nag the author on social media to write faster!

It's getting exciting!

I love this author's take on the whole zombie apocalypse genre. Character development has been great despite the fact the little is provided about the characters. They are all so likable. Fitz is absolutely my favorite. The book leaves you with a BIG cliffhanger, so make sure you already have Book 3 in your queue!

I'm now on to #3, and I know that Book 4 cannot come soon enough.
