The fifth book in USA Today bestselling author Nicholas Sansbury Smith's propulsive post-apocalyptic series about one man's mission to save the world.
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.

Awesome addition to the Extinction Cycle Series!

I could not wait to read the final conclusion of the Extinction Cycle series. I loved Extinction End!

The author's storytelling keeps on getting better and better. Rather than get burdened down by blow by blow military maneuvers (which I don't enjoy) or science that tries to explain things to the nth degree, the author has created a very enjoyable, fictional world that revolves around the characters and their struggles with a man made virus that has mutated humans into something nightmarish. I was kept on the edge of my recliner going through ups and downs, smiles and laughs and sniffles and sadness. As the battle between Variants and their offspring and Team Ghost intensifies and comes to a conclusion, we lose some of our heroes and find budding romance between others. There were several scenes that really got to me on an emotional level. We see the good in people who are desperate give their all to ensure the survival of the human race and the bad in desperate people who lack faith in others. There were times I wanted to jump into the story and strangle some people! As I got closer and closer to the end I kept wanting it to go on and on. But this story must come to an end unfortunately. The conclusion and epilogue were wonderfully written and unlike other series I've read, did justice to the characters we've come to love.

I, for one, would love to see the Extinction Cycle made into a movie. It's fun to imagine who I'd pick as actors for the characters. I have it all planned out!!!

I wholeheartedly recommend the Extinction Cycle series to anyone that loves the zombie, post apocalyptic genre!

“All it takes is all you got.”

Hope. Resilience. Perseverance. This epic, apocalyptic suspense series has embodied all of these concepts. The vivid storytelling in this “last” book hasn’t wavered from the author’s hallmark gut-punching action and strong characterization. The research and attention to detail that has gone into the crafting of this story is every bit as superb as the ones that have gone before. I admit being emotionally invested in Kate, Beckham, Fitz, Horn, Apollo and don’t want this journey to end. Thankfully, the author agrees!

Great book!

Loved it! I took my time with this one because I did not want it to end. I loved the story and the characters. Awesome ending!
