She is wrong.

This is one of a very few books, less than 1%, that I've regretted bothering with. This installment features a British naval crew who supposed to be elite special forces, a submarine, and a space station crew -- yet the author clearly didn't bother to do any research into how any of those things operate or what they can do. Monsters are introduced in one scene and ignored the rest of the book. The ending is so trite and worn out that I saw it coming hours and hours ahead. I'm tempted to write it here just to warn anyone over the age of about 12 away from this book, but spoilers are bad form so I'll just stick to saying "I told you so" to anyone foolish enough to bother.

I wish I read it with my eyes. Jones is a good storyteller but the narrator uses sing-song tone like a librarian reading to a classroom of 6 year olds. Her Scottish accent is painful.
Child like and groan worthy.
Sorry. Audition narrators. I feel like maybe this was a family member.
I work in IT, I love reading, I love Writing and for those daily travels too and fro I love to listen to Audible books too
This is a three book saga and kept me interested. It is well written and a fun ride. Emily is tough, fun and someone you want around at the end of the world. our narrator Emily Beresford does an excellent job. Enjoy this three book story as one long ride, it is worth it.
It is extremely sad that the author thinks the only way to express rage or surprise is to use the F word. I would never recommend or listen to this book again for that one reason. It is used repeatedly by our two heroes of the book.
Insert witty remark here...
This series was a super yawn fest. At times, I skipped entire chapters, as nothing of importance was missed. The best of the series was the epilogue in this Book 3. Listen to that and be done with it.
I struggled a little to adjust to the new situations in this last book of the series, as it went from having very few human characters to adding a whole float of them, and from having invaders that are mostly the vegetable and insect kind to more intelligent and insidious creatures. Yet, the ultimate, unifying theme is evolution, and how, if the human race is to persevere in a new adverse environment, we would need to evolve and adapt, rather than fight and try to retain the old world. The more you fight evolution, the more likely is your demise. The ending gave me goosebumps. Excellent storytelling to the very end.
Currently an Apocalypse listener most of my titles I have read are Apocalypse other than books not on my profile such as the Dresden Files
I hope you've read the first two because they are fun and interesting. with an ending you won't expect
This books ranks in the top 20% of my reads.
It's a creative and thought out version of the alien take-over story.
This is the first time I have listened to Emily Beresford and I would definitely listen to more of her performances.
This book was suspenseful at times but would be good to listen to at one time.
The only thing I did not like about this book was the repetitive us of some phrases. "Tell Tell" "Sing Song" "Find Purchase". These phrases were just used too many times in the books. Other than that, this series was very good.
Good story. Narration good for first two books but the last book was painful to listen to !
The attempt at Scottish accent was truly dreadful and spoiled a good little story . I ended up giving up the audio and reading last book on my kindle.
Really enjoyed the story line, I know everyone isn't great at accents but the Scottish attempt ended up irritating me for some reason haha
"Lked the story, terrible accents"
I've enjoyed the story line in this series, never been predictable!
The narrator can't do a Scottish accent, which is a shame given one of the main characters is Scottish. He had some Scottish moments, mixed with Indian and Welsh at times!
"Easy going and enjoyable."
Really enjoyed this. Well read and a easy going enjoyable story. If you like science fiction you'll properly enjoy this.
"Why the awful accents??"
I've listened to all three books of the extinction point trilogy... The first two were brilliantly narrated. But, Emily! Part three? Either narrate in your spoken tongue (preferable) or get language coaching. The English, Scottish and Welsh accents are so incredibly bad that I've had to stop listening. I'm sorry, I have rarely posted reviews, but just had to put this one out there. I cringe at every accent!
