Publisher's Summary

"Extinction Lost" is a short story that should be read after book 6, Extinction Aftermath. NOTE: This story was originally published in SNAFU: Black Ops.
The war continues …
Two days after the events of Extinction Aftermath, European Unified Command calls on Team Ghost for a top secret mission. The residents of a small Inuit fishing village in Greenland have gone missing and reports of Variants unaffected by Kryptonite have surfaced.
Fatigued, injured, and unaware of the events back in the United States, Master Sergeant Joe Fitzpatrick leads Team Ghost into the remote and alien winter landscape to determine the fate of the missing villagers. But as the operation unfolds they discover a harrowing revelation that could impact the world war against the Variants, and the future of the human race.

Exciting, Emotionally Charged! Can't Wait for what's Next!

Nicholas Sandburg Smith's exciting story puts the reader in touch with the thoughts and feelings of the marines or soldiers on the Ground. They are cut off from the rest of the war. They are lonely, afraid, tired and wounded but they keep pushing regardless of everything to complete their mission. Some are more likeable than others but they are all brave and keep fighting even in the midst of their fear. The refrain, "All It takes is all you have" frames the story and moves it along, keeping us always grounded in the feelings of the "grunt" on the ground.

I read this story quickly in Snafu anthology and enjoyed it very much. It was when I listened to it on Audible that I was able to appreciate the depth of the characterization and the writing technique that put me in the characters shoes. I loved this story!

Great short to keep me coming back

Though our friends Fitz and Apollo have no idea what is happening in the States other than rumors they are carrying on with their mission. Unfortunately this one takes them away from Europe and dumps them in Greenland where they face something very new.
