Publisher's Summary

Jed Welch thought washing out of the Marines Corps was the worst thing that could happen. It landed him back in his old life of crime, running with drug dealers in Queens. Just when he thought his luck couldn’t get worse, a global viral outbreak unleashed virulent hordes of Alpha predators. He quickly finds himself alone, saving his own skin, and on the run in New York City as the outbreak spreads.

In a twist of fate, Jed discovers the remnants of a devastated Marine platoon and decides to join them in the fight for survival. With these new allies, Jed has more than a new safe haven. He finds a renewed sense of mission and the conviction to serve again. Together, he and the other Marines will take the fight to the enemy, striking them where it matters most.

As the battles rage across the earth and humanity slowly gains a foothold, Jed grows into a leader, bringing his squad into the front lines against a new and more dangerous threat than any they have yet faced.

What the

Starts with a brave woman that wants to save everyone and runs when her husband is attacked. I don’t get it.
Now if you’re going to have a Marine in your story you should probably do some research on Marines. I find it hard to believe that a guy in the Corp for five years dose not know what a Glock looks like or how it works. And race is not a big deal in the Marines. If you make it though boot camp you earned it. No one cares what color you are.

The Redemption Trilogy

These three novellas brought together is one of hell a treat and well worth a credit. Learning more of Meg’s back was fascinating (AJ Sikes did one hell of job with her. Special props there as she is a well established character.). Jed’s journey is great as well. As always with EC there is plenty of action, terror, and a glimpse of the best of humanity under the worst of conditions. Oh? And if your new? It’s cool to start here. Just be warned....you are in for many nights without sleep. The entire series is excellent.

Horrible Narrator

I really enjoy the Extinction universe. However, each book set changes the rules on who does and doesn't turn. Pinchot's narration is infuriating, his frequent use of a "Gilbert Gottfried" tone with any exclamation is ridiculous. In Penance, I couldn't tell if Jed was from New York, the south, or slow based on the accent he gave him. The writer's frequent use of random military cliches is annoying, like he heard some random guys talking in a bar and thought those are great things to throw in my book. NSS needs to say no to anymore expansions into his world unless he is writing them.

Seper Fidelis!

We jump right into the viral infection. The newspapers said there was an ebola outbreak in Chicago but it was not ebola. Volume one switches between a fire station in Upper Manhattan and a Marine veteran named Jed Welch. The main character in the fire station is Meg Pratt, a newly made widow who watched her infected husband shot down outside their home. Meg received an Army escort to her fire station and here she made her stand. Jed had done a tour in Afganistan and had had enough of the military. When the epidemic broke out he wound up reenlisted. Jed always seemed confused, whether to run or stand and fight. His inner strength won out and he never ran, eventually making it to the fire station. The infected were everywhere, unstoppable, and ferocious. Volume two follows Jed through the city, avoiding and fighting the infected. Jed ran into a few surviving Marines from Operation Reaper, a fubar operation to clear the streets of New York. Once again, Jed is enlisted into another mission, to rescue any survivors. The infected aren’t the only enemy, a few deserters have made a treacherous bargain. Dealing with the deserters takes us to the end of the volume. Volume three found Jed and the remaining survivors escaping the city by boat, picked up by Marines, and heading to Plum Island. Somewhere along the line, the contagious blood and turning by bite have lost the effect they once had in the beginning. Several people in volume two had weathered injuries, even bites without turning. Is this an evolution of the infected, or author amnesia? I don’t know how this happened but it’s a major break in the story IMO. Two years later, Jed surfaces on Galveston Island as Sargeant Welch with a squad of his own. Jed’s squad was delegated security duty on the north shore of the island while they waited for refugee ships to arrive. Galveston was to be a staging area for the repopulation of Texas. Over time, a series of unexplained and horrifying incidents shattered the mundane routine that had become the norm on the island. Had the infected truly disappeared? Did they die off due to starvation or disease? Something unsettling is taking place on Galveston Island. Jed and his squad are smack-dab in the middle of it. Ooh-rah!

for zombie lovers only

this was free from audible so cant complain but after a few chapters I skipped to the end just to review. if you like zombie books go for it. I really dont like zombies,vampire,werewolf,dragons and the rest of the fantasy genre. The narrator has been around, never has impresed me. from a scale of 1 to 10 he gets a 4, rather a dull voice no matter how hard he tries.

Parts are drawn out

Overall enjoyed the storyline but it seemed like some parts went into detail not relevant to the overall story.

Flat

I usually like Bronson Pinchot but if I heard Sucker face exaggerated again I think I’ll scream. The story was very flat too. There was very little character development especially in book 2. I just had no interest in the people in this book. It goes from one impossible fight scene to another to another with no real detail about how they get out of the situation. The characters are constantly talking about running out of ammo but some how continued shooting. I’m almost through book 2. The characters, I care so little about them I don’t know their names, are in some tunnel shooting again at Sucker Faces and I don’t carr if they get out. I won’t find out if they get out or what happens in book 3.

book 1 is good

apparently this is a popular series. I thought it was good, but not great. book 1 was the better of the 3. I couldn't finish listening to book 3. I just didn't care.
The narrator didnt help. He is very monotone. the main character is a bit of a grunter. I thought initially that he would be a Forest Gump type. the overall vocabulary is very basic. just had to listen too.

if I had called my side arm a "Gat" while in the army I would have been ridiculed and made to PT and clean latrines forever. Apparently everyone in NY calls a gun a Gat. Even if they aren't from NY.

the 3rd book was the same story as the 1st 2. the monsters were different, but the bad people were just as stupid. The good people weren't really smarter, just luckier.
