Publisher's Summary

The greatest discovery in human history may also be our last.

Dr. Jack Greer's startling discovery beneath the Gulf of Mexico proved to the world we were not alone in the universe. But when images from the Voyager One space probe reveal an alien doomsday ship hurtling toward the Earth, the human race seems marked for extinction.

As news of the approaching ship spreads panic around the globe, signs of a sinister plot begin to emerge - one that threatens to unravel the already fragile fabric of society and everything Jack and Dr. Mia Ward have fought for.

But could a mysterious signal emanating from inside Greenland's ice sheet unlock the secrets hidden within our genome and prevent humanity's destruction?

From the frozen fields of Greenland to the bustling Indian subcontinent and the cobbled streets of Rome, the race is on to stop the deadliest countdown to extinction the human race has ever known.

Awesomeness! Science, intrigue, Aliens, suspense!

Extinction Countdown
Ancient Origins Series, Book 2
By: James D. Prescott
Narrated by: Gary Tiedemann
This is an Audible book I requested and the review is voluntary.
I loved the first book and this one is just as good. Something triggered the death of millions of people since the last book. The alien ship is sighted coming toward Earth. Secrets are revealed, so many twists and turns, corruption everywhere, and new connections between the aliens coming and the changes to humans are made. Lots of suspense, intrigue, government corruption, science brain food, and great imaginary possibilities!
The narration was terrific! Wonderful performance from start to finish!

Fantastic and can we get book 3 our now PLEASE!

I wished I could tell you more about this story but I’d had to start at the beginning with Extinction Code and now with Countdown I was wondering how the Author would top the first novel but to my surprise, the book was pleasant with enough twist and turns and more than anything the huge twist that will more than definitely will make the series finale a riveting tale that involves our past, our present and our future. Where do we come from, where are we going and how and where did we evolve from, and how a government secret can and will change all of humanity forever and the route human kind is heading without a warning. What a new species could mean for all of human kind... Read it. You will love it.

Review book 2 Extension Countdown: Ancient Origins series book 2

Unbelievable follow up to book 1. James Prescott is an amazing author and when joined by Gary Tiedemann’s abilities, you have a story and performance that keeps you on the edge of your seat. This is a series you will want in your library.

Extinction Countdown

This story is fun, the characters are enjoyable. What I love about this author is his unpredictability. Many times you know exactly what the plot will be right away when you are first reading a book.
