Publisher's Summary

A new monster emerges.

Newly christened as the leader of Delta Force Team Ghost, Master Sergeant Joe Fitzpatrick arrives in Normandy over 70 years after Allied Forces joined the fight against the Nazis. The war to free survivors and eradicate pockets of adult Variants and their offspring is underway by the European Unified Forces. But as the troops push east, rumors of a new type of monster spread through the ranks. Fitz and his new team quickly realize that the fight for Europe might be harder than anyone ever imagined.

They thought the war for America was over, but the war, for some, has just begun.

Back in the States, Captain Reed Beckham and Dr. Kate Lovato are settling into a new life on Plum Island. Across the United States, the adult Variants have all been wiped out, and the juveniles are on the run. But survivors soon realize there are other monsters at home, and they may be human.

This could be the end....

Wow, I'm speechless!!!! I have read and loved every single one of these books and couldn't wait for this one, well the author has surpassed himself with it. It was breathtakingly brilliant. So many emotions while reading!!!!

So this one sees Team Ghost, with Fitz at the helm, taking their efforts to Europe. They have made contact with some people in France and set off to help, but Europe is overrun with not only Juveniles, but Adult Variants. Plus their Variants are extreme!! They have evolved to be even more monstrous than any Team Ghost have ever seen.

"“All it takes is all you got, Marine,” Fitz said, echoing the motto of Sergeant Jose Garcia. He finally understood why the French and European Unified Forces weren’t here waiting for them with wine and cheese on the beach. Europe had fallen into darkness because the juveniles here had grown up. They were adults now, and they were smarter, bigger, and more deadly than any Fitz had faced back in the States."

Meanwhile, Beckham and Horn are enjoying retirement.... ha, not really, this is Beckham and Horn we are talking about!!! They were born to fight!! When President Ringgold tells them that the country is under attack again and this time it's not the Variants but someone who is willing to start the virus back up again, they know they need to help!

So again, I'll say wow!! Seriously, this book was phenomenal. Every single book has been action packed, but this one seemed even more so because both Team Ghost and Beckham and Horn are in deeper than they have ever been, especially Team Ghost. The Variants in Europe had longer to evolve since they didn't spread the Variant Weapon till the Juveniles were more established, so most were fully grown. How can you kill something that has evolved weapons and protection of their own!! Well, read it and see ;)

I have said it with every book in the series, I love these characters. They are so well written and developed, that it's hard not to become invested in them. Beckham and Horn, Kate and Pat, Fitz and Apollo, they are characters that stay with you, you feel what they are feeling and you root for them continually! And when they get hurt, you gasp and cry along with them!! This book hurt my heart though. Things happen that made me stop for a second and go noooooooooo, noooooo, nooooooooo!!

I don't know what else to say about this other than it's perfection. Action packed, thrilling, addicting, captivating, entertaining and amazing, this is a must read!!! I CAN NOT wait for the next book, though I don't know if my heart can take it!!! Buy it, you won't be disappointed.

There isn't much else I can say about Bronson Pinchot that I haven't expressed in my other reviews of the series! He has been consistently good with his characters and the way he portrays them. He reads it extremely well and knows how to bring the story alive. Highly enjoyed his performance.

Must-read series

Love this series! Hits the floor running and comes back to all my favorite characters. Bronson Pinchot nails it again with his stellar narration. His cadence and tempo keep you on the edge of your seat!

Great beginning...

Great beginning to a new chapter in the ongoing war against the Variants. As Fritz heads to Europe to assist in the fight against the Variants, he is unaware of the new species of Variants(many, many new species) that has mutated beyond what even they could imagine and Europe may already be lost before he arrives. Beckham is about to learn that there is no such thing as a safe zone as a new enemy rises determined to kill and destroy any who stand in his way, including releasing the deadly virus again just to prove his point. And Lt Davis is doing what she does best; Kicking ass and taking names and this time her actions or inactions may very well decide the future of humans in the Continental US.
Although the battles are spread across the country and world they all have a one thing in common and NSS has blended their stories/struggles seamlessly. And as usual the cliff hanger leaves you gritting your teeth, or in my case a very loud ARRRRGGGG!!! Definitely another winner.

Smith does it again!!!!!!!!!

Things in the US seem to be balancing out. The monsters are on the run and the government is struggling to rebuild the fractured country. Fitz is overseas trying to help our allies retake their countries from the juveniles and the variants.
When things seem to be going write a new wrinkle adds fuel to this apocalyptic series. I highly recommend this book to anyone who like zombie like stories. I cant wait for the next book in the series.

Bringing back the action

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

Definitely right up there with the best of them.

What does Bronson Pinchot bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He definitely brings the story to life in a way I don't always get from narrators. Its nice to have someone who can properly do different voices and characters, and who reads at a comfortable cadence.

Who was the most memorable character of Extinction Aftermath and why?

Really hard to beat Fitz. He's the kind of guy you wish you could be. Fights against adversity and fights against the apocalypse.

more terrifying than what we’ve heard before

Extinction Aftermath (The Extinction Cycle Book 6) by Nicholas Sansbury Smith is well worth the wait!  Not only do we see Delta Force Team Ghost’s Master Sergeant Fitz take lead but he helps to storm the beach in Normandy to help eradicate the European Variants that have been left to grow, mutate and become even more deadlier than the ones in the US.

Beckham and Horn are in retirement and not really enjoying it.  So when President Gringhold calls upon them for a special project, they jump at the opportunity to re-engage.  There’s another new bad-ass guy in the US hoping to take down the fragile government and doesn’t really care about the recovery of the US.  Time will only tell who is worse – the Variants or him!

The new monsters in Europe are … well, more terrifying than what we’ve heard before.  This book is particularly gruesome and pulls on the heartstrings and ripping them out.  If you love horror and Team Ghost – this is the book for you.  This is not for the squeamish or soft-hearted.

Smith is a vivid storyteller that describes everything in rich detail eking out each terrifying moment.  His characters are fully developed – even the ones that have a brief appearance.  Action packed and riveting.  This tells the story of what happens in the US afterwards and what happens in Europe when there is no coordination of efforts.

I enjoyed listening to Bronson Pinchot.  He is a wonderful narrator capturing the character traits of each character and making them come alive with tone, and excitement.  Mr. Pinchot makes the book come alive as only a top-notch narrator can.  His tone is calming but when he speeds up and adds in the excited emotions, it only gets better.

There were no issues with the production of this audiobook.

Aftermath.... And more!?

I am sad it's over. Glad there is more. But after 6 books I can't believe the story continues. I thought that this was the end. The last book, but I was wrong. The writing is so good and it's the first time I've been hooked on an Audible books. I am looking forward to #7.

I'm torn because I thought 6 was the last one and I'm a sucker for an ending. But as book 6 continued I was wondering how it was going to end with so much left to finish. I was worried. Makes sense now. It's been a long time that I've had to wait for the next one and now I have this next one and his other book helldivers. Dammit Nicholas Sansbury Smith! Why are they so good?!?

amazing

This has got to be the best series of books I have ever read, listened to, owned and heard of. They're absolutely impossible to put down and I had to listen to each book all in one go. I found myself really caring about the characters and when one died (not telling you who) I actually cried, that's how well written these books are. Nicholas Sansbury Smith is an amazing author and for anyone who says Bronson Pinchot is a dull or monotone reader, please stick with it as he gets much, much better, he absolutely gets into the books and really brings them to life. The best end of the world full of nasties books I have ever read, and I read a hell of a lot.
