Publisher's Summary

An implacable foe with telepathic cohesion in battle, near immortality, and eons-advanced engineering skills threatens to wipe humanity from the galaxy. What's more, they've overcome their one weakness - no faster-than-light travel - and have followed humanity through our star gates and beyond. But humans are the master of adaption and have got a counterpunch of devastating proportions in reserve. Now a hard-bitten and brilliant admiral must face down renewed alien attack and somehow communicate to the enemy that if he is forced to use his ultimate military option, galactic civilization itself may come to a fiery end.

They killed the series for me. It's dead.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I really enjoyed the first four books in the series. This one was just plain bad though. I wanted lots of starship battles. What I got was something else. Too much girly b.s. It was like the view with some stuff blowing up in the background. Disappointed and then some.


What was most disappointing about Steve White and Charles E. Gannon ’s story?

They spent way too much time with the touchy feely stuff. I don't buy a book with a massive spaceship battle on the cover to spend half the time going over interpersonal, love interest character plots. They threw the military part out of what has, until now, been one of the best Military Sci-fi series I've ever read/listened to. They turned it into a romance novel.


Which character – as performed by Marc Vietor – was your favorite?

Marc Victor was a great narrator.


Did Extremis inspire you to do anything?

Yes, it inspired me to skip the next title in the series.

Good story, sorta

I felt like the ending was week, like you had one idea, and final found a place to dump it in. Why write about the great heroes return, and not make him part of the solution.
