Publisher's Summary

Extinction Evolution

Central Command is gone, the military is fractured, and the surviving members of Team Ghost, led by Master Sergeant Reed Beckham, have been pushed to the breaking point. While the strong return to the battlefield, the wounded are forced to stay behind on Plum Island and fight their inner demons.

Betrayed by the country they swore to defend and surrounded by enemies on all sides, Team Ghost has one mission left: protect Dr. Kate Lovato and Dr. Pat Ellis while they develop a weapon to defeat the Variants once and for all. But after a grisly discovery in Atlanta, Kate and Ellis realize their weapon might not be able to stop the evolution of the monsters.

Joined by unexpected allies and facing a new threat none of them saw coming, the survivors are running out of time to save the human race from extinction.

Extinction End

Almost seven weeks have passed since the Hemorrhage Virus ravaged the world. The remnants of the United States military have regrouped and relocated Central Command to the George Washington Carrier Strike Group. It's here, in the North Atlantic, that President Jan Ringgold and Vice President George Johnson prepare to deploy a new bioweapon and embark on the final mission to take back the country from the Variants.

With his home gone and his friends kidnapped, Master Sergeant Reed Beckham and his remaining men must take drastic measures to save what's left of the human race. But not everyone at Central Command has the same plan for victory. As the Variants continue to evolve, only a handful of heroes stand between the creatures and mankind's total extinction.

One way or another, the battle for the United States of America ends here.

Extinction Aftermath

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.

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.

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?

    "Great reading of a good story"

    I never get tired of listening to Bronson Pinchot. He's truly a great reader. The last three Extinction Cycle books were what I thought they would be, pretty much like the first three. There were a few twists and turns to the plot, which I really appreciated. Some of my favorite characters were lost, which made me actually upset a bit. I hated it when Meg was killed, for example. I thought she would survive anything. I won't spoil the other surprises for anyone who will read these books, but I suppose when the actual survival of the human race is at stake, there will be a few losses.

    Over all, still, I fell as though I was listening to the same story over and over, in a way. It's not the author's fault, I don't think. How many ways can you describe combat? I'm a veteran and I can't think of more than one way. Chaos.

    So, I think he's done a good job over all, considering all the fighting that was done. He also dwelt a lot on the sense of failure felt by survivors. Survivors guilt is a very real thing, and again, I think most vets can relate. We don't dwell on it, so if felt a little weird to see him do so. It was in the character's minds mostly. So that was more real than not I think, and perhaps I found that uncomfortable for my own reasons.

    Overall, this was a real bargain, all three books for one credit. Couldn't beat it. Thanks to Audible for offering it.

    The story, action, research and performance all add up to a vivid, gripping experience.

    The Tide series, same, same great action.

    Brings the characters and world alive, heightens the suspense.

    The kick-ass narration once again elevates this dynamic combo of military action, science fiction and post-apocalyptic mayhem. Keeps deepening the characters and scope of the series. Still my fave series of this ilk. Looking forward to more!

    "Kick Ass Ride"

    Normally I just give the numerical rating and call it a day. However in the case of this novel I make an exception. This story is truly exceptional. From the storyline, to the characters, to the realism, and to any other criteria you rate novels by, this story is outstanding. No matter when you listen to the story it will be a thrill however, I recommend listening to this without any other distractions and with a good amount of time on your hands because it is one kick ass ride of excitement.

    "this entire 6 book series is off the chain"

    I highly recommend reading every one of these books they have all proven to be extremely extremely entertaining. One of the things I love most about these books is that it keeps the same characters throughout the entire series with some minor changes here and there adding some characters and characters die off excetera but for the most part the story revolves around Captain Beckham and Team Ghost.

    "Entire series is just awesome!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Extinction Cycle Boxed Set, Books 4–6 to be better than the print version?

    IDK. I didn't read the books. Audio only.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Extinction Cycle Boxed Set, Books 4–6?

    Riley and Meg's deaths.


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

    Not sure.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Riley and Meg died, especially the death bed scene between Meg and Fitz. Made me cry.


    Any additional comments?

    Absolutely hated Dr. Kate Lavato throughout the entire series! Wish she would have died instead of Meg.

    "If I have to hear "it's sucker lips" ONE MORE TIME"

    This series starts out really good, but the authors lack of variation in his descriptions of the variants and a few other terms he uses OVER AND OVER again, really got on my nerves. He needs to add more terminology to his descriptions and come out with an updated version. I had to stop half way through the series.

    I also found the lead hero character to be sooooooo manly and all powerful to the point where it became obnoxious. We get it, he is amazing, make him more human and less perfect.

    Also, the narrator made every single female character super weak and whiney sounding where I'm not sure that was the authors intent but it also came off really annoying.

    Story
    "I wanted to like this series..."

    This series started off ok, and I wanted to like it, but the more it went on the worse it got. The characters rather than gaining depth became more flat and 1 dimensional. Half the characters are driven by duty/ love of country, a country that no longer exists. The other half are driven by guilt. The really developed characters are driven by both. The enemy, in this case mutated humans, are way too perfect; bigger, better, faster, stronger, and in some cases able to fly, oh, and they are smart too with absolutely no real weaknesses.

    On the positive side, I thought Bronson Pinchot did a great job narrating.

    "Really enjoyable though, a minor criticism"

    I really liked this series and couldn't put it down. Non-stop action and strong characters who were easy to root for or against. Bronson Pinchot, one of my favorite performers provided the perfect cadence, tone and inflection to pull you right into the story.

    The one thing that kept this a 4 star overall was the authors tendency to repeat certain descriptive phrases unnecessarily, as if he had to keep reminding me that Apollo dropping his tail was "his tell."

    I also felt that while he did a very good job of conveying the emotional and psychological wounds inflicted by battle (usually missing in other action/fantasy novels), he overdid it just a little too much that it verged on wearisome.

    That said, the positives: great characters, action, imagery and performance well outweighed the shortcomings and I highly recommend this book to those who like this genre. If you like Larry Correia, you'll probably like this.
