Publisher's Summary

Hope rises in the hearts of those still left standing, but safety seems to be just an illusion. In a single night of shattering terror, Plum Island is destroyed, and key scientist Dr. Kate Lovato is abducted.

The end has arrived....

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.

    Started with Deathgate Cycle and have not looked back. I have loved and hated along with some of the most epic characters ever imagined.

    "Epic, Wicked, Awesome..."
    What did you like most about Extinction End?

    Everything, there are a lot of zombiepocalyse stories around, but theres two series that steal the show... guess who the Author is.......


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Apollo was my hero, that being said, every single character in this book makes you get the feels.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    really? The EPIC 360 firefight... best firefight EVER!


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

    yes, but I'm not going to tell you, when you hear it, you will know.


    Any additional comments?

    I listen to these stories while im at work, this book had me holding my breath and completely zoning out while i was supposed to be working, it cannot be helped, as you listen you do not just get sucked in, you want to grab a gun and help, every little victory, every loss hits you right in the feels.

    "Wow"

    I've now listened to the whole series 2x and what can I say? I laughed, I cried, I got angry at the monsters both human and variant. These books were written in a way that each character came alive and in the end I was relieved at the the victories achieved by each and every person in the books. Thank you Mr. Sansbury Smith for the introduction to my new friends and if I happen to have the privilege of meeting them again in the future, I wouldn't complain!

    "Pretty Good Series"

    I enjoyed this series. The story developed smoothly from book to book with natural flow. The continued growth of the variants as enemies maintained interest, though the pace at which the events moved seemed a bit too fast at times. I do not mean the individual scenes, which were written with extraordinary detail, but the overall story arc. That is why I left off a star.

    Bronson Pinchot is a solid narrator, though not my favorite. I find some of his pronunciations irksome, such as the word "why"; it sounds like ha-wie. Some of his female characters lack original voices too. Again, solid but not 5 star worthy.

    Story
    "This final book is the ultimate in zombie horror."

    The Hemorrhage Virus, created by doctors of the military hoping to create the perfect soldier, is still a deadly threat but now the variants have morphed and become more deadly over the last seven weeks.  Dr. Kate Levado and her colleague, Ellis, have tried to save the world only to discover that the variants are morphing to fit their environments and they are breeding!

    Master Sergeant Beckham has his hands full with the variants but now he has to rescue Kate, Horn’s daughters and Meg from the variants who kidnapped them.  Face to face with the Bone Collector and the human collaborators, Beckham and his small team fight to reclaim their family and loved ones.

    During all of this, President Ringgold and VP Johnson plan to strategically release a new bio weapon to defeat the off-spring of the variants – the perfect soldiers.  Ringgold and Johnson are faced with a mutiny; Lt. Davis must defeat and squelch the coup before it’s too late and the nuclear bombs are released on Team Ghost!

    Fitz, Horn, Beckham and others face life changing decisions – not everyone makes it out alive or in one piece.

    This final book is the ultimate in zombie horror.  There is not one moment of down time for anyone – there is constant action, danger with twists and turns that leave the listener in stunned awe.  At times, I railed against Nicholas Sansbury Smith calling him every name in the book only to have my husband remind me to be patient!  Smith masterfully puts all the pieces together in one last book, demonstrating why our military soldiers and others fight the fight, what the U.S. means to some and how life is never something to be taken for granted.

    This is a tear jerker at times, an emotional roller coaster making the listener experience ups and downs that are monumental.  There are some beautiful moments where life and death are experienced in ways that only someone skilled in story telling can relay with words.

    This is one of my few favorite zombie series.  Smith ends this series well leaving room for other characters to move forward if and when he chooses.

    Again, Bronson Pinchot did an excellent job of narrating.  His skill at drawing the listener in with his voice is surpassed by none.  He projected the right emotions each time and caught the listener up in the rush of excitement.  I enjoyed listening to his narrations and look forward to hearing more from him.

    There were no issues with production.

    Awesome, exciting series. Just when you think you've got it figured out the story takes another unexpected twist. It's one once you start you can't put it down. Loved it!

    I have r read many apocolapce books and it is great to finally read one that us typical zombie this, zombie that. However I missed one thing in the series and hopefully someone can tell me. Why, when the variants bite people do they not turn? Didn't they make people turn before they turned into variants?

    "Fabulous Series!"
    Where does Extinction End rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of THE best in a series. Loved how it ended and there wasn't a cliff hanger in case the writer wants to write another book.


    What other book might you compare Extinction End to and why?

    None. The Extinction Series is 1 of a kind.


    Have you listened to any of Bronson Pinchot’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Because of this series I've searched out Bronson Pinchot's performances. He does a great job.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    I purchased 2 of the books as part of a deal. As soon as I got done, I ordered the other 2 right way! When the 5th came out I was so excited. I listened to the series in its entirety just to get the complete AWESOMENESS of it!

    "Best book of the series!"
    Where does Extinction End rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is definitely one of my favorite books I've listened to so far. It keeps the listener completely enraptured and in suspense right until the very end. It has the perfect amount of action, thrill, and even some touching moments.


    What about Bronson Pinchot’s performance did you like?

    The narrator is able to convey the emotions that the characters are experiencing almost flawlessly. The great story is only bettered through his narration.


    Any additional comments?

    The Extinction Cycle is most definitely a series I would listen to again. Wonderfully narrated and written.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Great characters and fast action. Perfect for a road trip.


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

    Yes


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

    I don't know but I really wish someone would make it into a movie. But follow the book unlike WWZ.

    "Still Great!"
    What was one of the most memorable moments of Extinction End?

    when the main character gets into a tough spot.

    In this particular book I was glad that he took some risks with the main character. Usually the main character come out of everything with nothing more than a few scratches. Not this time though. To me that made it feel more genuine, which I greatly appreciated. I also loved that all the characters I really cared about lived and you weren't sure if they would because some of the other characters who we've gotten to know throughout the series did die. This aspect made it interesting.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    He did, however I don't care for this narrator. He does a really good job of changing up the voices. And he definitely has enthusiasm. However, I just feel like the tone of the characters are always just so wrong. This is just my personal preference though. And he's not bad enough to not listen to the story.


    Any additional comments?

    This series has definitely been my favorite for a story about surviving a zombie apocalypse. It seems like it has the right amount of action, gore, and feeling.

    I also enjoyed the zombie offspring have evolved even more into unique monster. It gives it a Resident Evil feel to it the story.

    "Wow. What an ending!"
    Where does Extinction End rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Great series and a great finale. I'd rate this pretty highly as an audiobook.


    What other book might you compare Extinction End to, and why?

    The lead character is very similar to Larry Correia's Owen Pitt (from the Monster Hunter series) and Jonathan Maberry's Joe Ledger (from the series of the same name).


    Any additional comments?

    A very tense finish to the series. A couple of great and twists, one being quite unexpected.

    Nicholas Sansbury Smith really puts his characters through the wringer in this book.

    "If the genre is your taste, enjoy!"

    I really enjoyed this series. I did find the narration a little difficult on occasion as he would speed up too much during action sequences, and there are a lot of those! If you are a fan of the apocalypse genre then you will not be disappointed. If this is your first foray into the genre this series could be a good one to start with.

    This is the fifth action packed book in the Extinction Cycle and what a brilliant conclusion. I will struggle to find something else to follow this. Narration was excellent too.
