For dinosaurs, it was a big rock. For humans: Coronal Mass Ejection (CME). When the Earth is hit by the greatest CME in recorded history (several times larger than the Carrington Event of 1859), the combined societies of the planet's most developed nations struggle to adapt to a life thrust back into the Dark Ages. In the United States, the military scrambles to speed the nation's recovery on multiple fronts including putting down riots, establishing relief camps, delivering medical aid, and bringing communication and travel back on line. Just as a real foothold is established in retaking the skies (utilizing existing commercial aircraft supplemented by military resources and ground control systems), a mysterious virus takes hold of the population, spreading globally over the very flight routes that the survivors fought so hard to rebuild.

It only took an instant for the world to come crashing down. The bombs came first, and the troops were close behind. Life in the dream that was America ceased when a deadly new alliance of communist states from Russia, China, and their allies invaded from the North. The invasion splits Brad Stone's family apart. His wife, Youngmi, is captured and exploited by Alaska's new communist warlord. Brad and his sons narrowly avoid massacre and retreat into the icy wilderness.

Joel Byram is an everyday 22nd century guy. He spends his days training artificial-intelligence engines to act more human, jamming out to 1980s new wave - an extremely obscure genre - and trying to salvage his deteriorating marriage. Joel is pretty much an everyday guy with everyday problems - until he's accidentally duplicated while teleporting. Now Joel must outsmart the shadowy organization that controls teleportation, outrun the religious sect out to destroy it, and find a way to get back to the woman he loves.

Where does Extracted rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

definitely top ten percent!

What did you like best about this story?

the characters uniqueness, the plot, the twists? Hard to pick just one!

What about Carl Prekopp’s performance did you like?

I didn't think his voice was good when I tried the "sample" but I jumped in anyway. This might be one of only a few audiobooks where I didn't really notice that only one person was doing all the voices. Superb narration!

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

If you could only pick three people to save the world...

Any additional comments?

I could not stop listening to this book. I was hesitant and picked it in a rush to listen to during my long commutes. then I started listening to it at work, driving slower to get home so I could hear more of the story. finally connected my phone to speakers in the house to finish the book. Great time travel story!

After recovering Patient Zero, Alpha must escape Africa to end the ZA once and for all. But they can feel the hot breath of a reinforced and vengeful Spetsnaz team on their necks - and there can be no escaping the reckoning of an ultimate sniper showdown between Ali and Vasily, and an incomparably brutal iron-cage Texas death match between Predator and Misha. For the first time, all the teams will come together and must fight as brothers for any chance of making it back to Britain. And only one thing is certain - not everyone is walking away from this one.
