Publisher's Summary

There's a storm on the horizon....
Central Command is gone, the military is fractured, and the surviving members of Team Ghost, led by Master Sergeant Reed Beckham, have been pushed to the breaking point. While the strong return to the battlefield, the wounded are forced to stay behind on Plum Island and fight their inner demons.
Betrayed by the country they swore to defend and surrounded by enemies on all sides, Team Ghost has one mission left: protect Dr. Kate Lovato and Dr. Pat Ellis while they develop a weapon to defeat the Variants once and for all. But after a grisly discovery in Atlanta, Kate and Ellis realize their weapon might not be able to stop the evolution of the monsters.
Joined by unexpected allies and facing a new threat none of them saw coming, the survivors are running out of time to save the human race from extinction.

Now, the creatures are evolving!

It’s not bad enough that the government created a special virus in order to create super soldiers; it’s not bad enough that the virus has now spread to civilians; it’s not bad enough that the world has less than a third of its human population due to the virus infected variants. No, none of that is bad enough – the government/command central has now fallen, there is very little if any of the government left; the military is fractured beyond belief.

Now, the creatures are evolving! Not only can they think and plan, now they are adapting to their environment – growing gills, scales, and so much more! Kate has to hurry to get the Kryptonite cure done but can she? Can the fractured military dispense it? And to top off all the badness, it seems, Kate and a few others have gone missing after a sudden appearance of variants on Plum Island and a mysterious “white” king. Beckham will have his hands full now!

This book was a natural progression of the variants and the relationship between Kate & Reed. Sadly, some of the other minor but favorite characters had to die. Reed Beckham is dealing with a lot of horror, decision making, saving people and trying to survive.

Like the others in this series, the action was intense. I was saddened with most of the deaths, some I cheered but others I had more than a few moments of grief. Nicholas Sansbury Smith not only forges connections to each of his characters but Bronson Pinchot provides the passionate voice that seals the connection.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who is into zombies, military, romance and action. There is not one minute where the author allows the listener to slow down; he keeps the listeners going full force just like his characters!

I love listening to Bronson Pinchot. His narration skills are excellent - he feels the excitement and projects it into his character voices capturing the attention of the listeners. Not many people have the range to do voices for both genders, but Pinchot does and does it very well.

There were no issues with the production, it was excellent.

nobody survives!

Great Narration, superb actually. The story is also one that keeps you on your seat. this is the fourth book in the Extinction series, its the only one I've listened to.
I love a good battle between good and evil, but when the good guy is constantly getting their butt kicked it gets old. They need to win once in awhile for me to keep interested. So many of the good guys get killed in this book, I don't want to hear the next. I would have turned it off if the German Shepard in the story would have died! I was just bracing myself for it because nobody is spared throughout this book! Now it ends with the main Character pregnant girlfriend who is also a scientist and his buddies two young daughters being taken by the monsters! for food!! the end! I don't have any faith they come out of it alive!
I hate to be so negative because with Bronson Pinchot Narrating it is a good listen. I have listened to many zombie, type books, this one does give that particular theme a wicked face lift, and interesting new twists, But leaves our good guys up a crick with out a paddle!
If Bronson Narrates the next Extinction book to follow this one, I will purchase it to see if Kate and the girls get saved, but I'm almost afraid to listen to it! And if Apolo the German Shepard gets whacked I'm done!
The only thing I like about these type books is when our good guys be it military bad asses or civilian, Rise up and kick some monsters ass!
I hope the next book the score board starts to favor the good guys!!
