Publisher's Summary

Hope rises in the hearts of those still left standing, but safety seems to be just an illusion. In a single night of shattering terror, Plum Island is destroyed, and key scientist Dr. Kate Lovato is abducted.
The end has arrived....
Almost seven weeks have passed since the Hemorrhage Virus ravaged the world. The remnants of the United States military have regrouped and relocated Central Command to the George Washington Carrier Strike Group. It's here, in the North Atlantic, that President Jan Ringgold and Vice President George Johnson prepare to deploy a new bioweapon and embark on the final mission to take back the country from the Variants.
With his home gone and his friends kidnapped, Master Sergeant Reed Beckham and his remaining men must take drastic measures to save what's left of the human race. But not everyone at Central Command has the same plan for victory. As the Variants continue to evolve, only a handful of heroes stand between the creatures and mankind's total extinction.
One way or another, the battle for the United States of America ends here.

I have started this review many times but wasn't able to formulate the words that I wanted to say, not because this was bad, but because it was exceptional and the words I wanted to say weren't enough. This book, and indeed the whole series, has been phenomenal.

So Kate, Meg, Tasha, Jenny and a few other islanders were taken by the variants and their collaborators back to the lair of the Bone Collector. Beckham and team Ghost (well what's left of them anyway) immediately set out on a rescue mission. It might just be their toughest fight yet because the girls are in danger.

Meanwhile, there is dissension in the ranks, with someone wanting to send a nuclear bomb to wipe out the variants, even with men still in the field, but the president denying the request. The culprit isn't happy though and a mutiny is about to take place. Can Lt. Davis and a handful of hurt marines stop it in time?

This is just a drop in the bucket of what happens in this book!! As with each book, the action is non stop, and I mean non stop. Every page is chock full of it and it's hard to take a breath because you know something is about to happen!! I didn't just read this... I devoured it as I couldn't put it down!!

The author isn't afraid to take risks either. In every book characters die, but he also kills off some prominent ones, and I was afraid to find out who was killed here!!! There are deaths, some of them painful ones, and no-one is left unscathed. My heart was in my mouth so many times with this and I was in tears a lot too, but it all added up to a simply amazing book.

These characters have become some of my favourite and even though this was supposed to be the end, I'm so glad the author decided to write 2 more. This would have been a satisfying ending to Beckham's tale, but there were a lot of unanswered questions and I'm delighted we get to see some of Team Ghost go to Europe and take back the world!!

I don't know what else to say about this... other than it's one of the best series I've read in years! Extinction End was stunning, stupendous, amazing, exceptional and extraordinary!! Brilliantly written and developed, it's a must read for everyone!

To me, Bronson Pinchot is Beckham and Horn and all the other amazing characters!! He nailed the performance and gave every character their own tones and voices. He captured the very essence of the book perfectly and drew me in with his inflections. Brilliant!!

I've now listened to the whole series 2x and what can I say? I laughed, I cried, I got angry at the monsters both human and variant. These books were written in a way that each character came alive and in the end I was relieved at the the victories achieved by each and every person in the books. Thank you Mr. Sansbury Smith for the introduction to my new friends and if I happen to have the privilege of meeting them again in the future, I wouldn't complain!

A great zombie/variant horror story with believable characters!

Gripping zombie story I couldn't stop listening to! Made the long journeys on the M1 & M5 go a lot quicker!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED AUDIBLE SERIES!

Wow. What an ending!

Where does Extinction End rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Great series and a great finale. I'd rate this pretty highly as an audiobook.

What other book might you compare Extinction End to, and why?

The lead character is very similar to Larry Correia's Owen Pitt (from the Monster Hunter series) and Jonathan Maberry's Joe Ledger (from the series of the same name).

Any additional comments?

A very tense finish to the series. A couple of great and twists, one being quite unexpected.

Nicholas Sansbury Smith really puts his characters through the wringer in this book.

Epic, Wicked, Awesome...

What did you like most about Extinction End?

Everything, there are a lot of zombiepocalyse stories around, but theres two series that steal the show... guess who the Author is.......

Who was your favorite character and why?

Apollo was my hero, that being said, every single character in this book makes you get the feels.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

really? The EPIC 360 firefight... best firefight EVER!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

yes, but I'm not going to tell you, when you hear it, you will know.

Any additional comments?

I listen to these stories while im at work, this book had me holding my breath and completely zoning out while i was supposed to be working, it cannot be helped, as you listen you do not just get sucked in, you want to grab a gun and help, every little victory, every loss hits you right in the feels.
