Publisher's Summary

On the eve of extinction, all seems to be lost, but there is still one final hope....

Operation Liberty has failed. Humans are losing the war. With no other option, General Kennor decides to pull back the troops and give science a second chance.

Trapped in the extensive sewer system beneath New York, Master Sergeant Reed Beckham and the survivors of First Platoon must battle through the tunnels - where they make a grisly discovery in their attempt to escape.

At Plum Island, Dr. Kate Lovato is working on a new bioweapon to destroy the Variants. But when a derelict Navy destroyer crashes into the Connecticut shoreline, she is forced to deal with a nightmare she thought had ended.

As the doomsday clock ticks down and military bases fall across the country, the human race enters the age of extinction. Will science prevail - or will mankind vanish off the face of the planet?

    "STILL Can't Breathe!!!"

    This series has been an amazing thrill ride. Book 3 is the BEST of the series so far, and I cannot wait for the next. I listened to this book straight through and loved every second. That Fitz is still my favorite character!!

    "No, Seriously. Don't Go in There!"

    First off, let me say that Bronson Pinchot is perfect for this series. He does a wonderful job making each and every character voice different and his pacing is spot on.
    On to the book itself. Another fantastic novel by Smith. After reading the first 2 books in the series, I had no idea how the author could top them. Well, it is safe to say that this is the best book in the series thus far. Smith has ramped up the action, suspense, romance and even a little bit of humor to keep all of his fans and yes, even the newbies, happy. I love how the story line is easy to follow and every scenario is different from the previous. Yes, Beckham is consistently charged with taking his team into the thick of it in order to perform some impossible mission, but there is always a new outcome you don't see coming. With twists and turns, violence and gore and love and hate, there is plenty to like in this series. But will you be able to catch your breath? I'll leave it to you to find out. Can't wait to read Book 4: Extinction Evolution!!!!

    Beckett is about to explode - so many twists and turns! Fast paced action keeps you on your toes. Each time Becket goes out there is trouble. Can they keep everyone safe without losing any more people? Has Kate found the cure? Suspense - action - action and great plot!

    I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!

    "Series must be read in order!"

    Other than noting that Book 3 of the Extinction Cycle is the best yet and observing that the author and narrator both do a great job, Ill delay additional comments I have listened to Extinction Evolution (Book 4).

    Book 5 in the series will be titled Extinction End. Amazon shows the release date for the Kindle version as February 29 (in three weeks). Audible does not list the audiobook yet, but I am aware that the audiobook is scheduled to be released on March 15, 2016, so Audible will have it up on their website soon.
    .
    Meanwhile Super Bowl 50 is tomorrow and I plan to watch my hometown Carolina Panthers celebrate their upcoming victory over the Denver Broncos!

    "Outstanding series by talented author!"

    Nicholas Sansbury Smith is a gifted author . I have thoroughly enjoyed his Extinction series. His sense of story pacing is outstanding. There are no sections you are tempted to skip even though you can't wait to find out what is going to happen next.

    The characters are well developed. The heroes are human and honorable. You can't help but like and admire them. You can hardly wait to see the villains reap what they have sown.

    I spent my weekend listening to this series. The narrator is outstanding. I could not stop listening. I so wanted to hear what the author would write next. I have also bought this series in Kindle so I can read again . Needless to say I am looking forward to his next book

    "Just needed a punch"

    As soon as I met this one character, I just wanted him to get a punch in the face. You'll know exactly who I mean immediately too.

    Very good story and satisfying ending. A lot of action and fighting with a lot of depth to the story. Narrator was great.
