Reviews Extinction Evolution (The Extinction Cycle, #4)

  • Michael Hicks
    Here's the deal: Extinction Evolution is now the fourth (out of five) books in Nicholas Sansbury Smith's Extinction Cycle series. If you've read the previous three, then you know what to expect here - vicious Variant violence, great military action, and human scientists continuing their quest for a biological weapon that will eradicate the threat decimating mankind. If you have not read the previous three, then you need to start back at the begin...

    Gosh! Definitely the best one so far. I'm a mess right now, I'm going to go to sleep and post my review tomorrow because I just can't right now... too many emotions.Edited to post actual review:OK, here we go...First of all I think I held my breath for most of the book, it was very intense and I do that when I'm expecting something bad to happen.I also cried, I knew not everyone was going to make it, I mean, it is very obvious from the kind of bo...

    Give me a moment. Be still my beating heart.*Wipes sweat from brow*As you probably know by now, I am a big fan of this series. Not only does the story improve with each book, but so does Smith's writing ability, especially this one in particular. Instead of the run-of-the-mill action/bang-bang/shoot em' up Team Ghost mercin' Variants here and there, we follow (2) YES (2) MORE storylines that all converge into one epic firefight. Smith does a fine...
  • RedemptionDenied
    As good as the previous books in the Extinction Cycle series - though this one was a lot more emotional; especially the ending. New characters are introduced at the beginning of the book: Marine Staff Sergeant Jose Garcia, Tank and four other members of a Marine Force Recon Team; known as the Variant Hunters. Their primary objective is to scope out Key West, Smathers Beach, as recent intel suggests the Variants may be changing faster than previou...
  • Cheryl
    This 4th book in the EXTINCTION CYCLE series is a "monster" hitI've made no secret that I'm a fan girl of this series. I loved EXTINCTION HORIZON, EXTINCTION EDGE and EXTINCTION AGE. And this story is the best one so far.What do you get when you mix monsters, medicine, and the military? A mega great time!Dr. Kate and Beckham are back battling the Variants, along with their trusty band of friends and new comrades...and the Variants just keep getti...
  • Karen
    I received an advance copy in exchange for an honest review.I am completely blown away by this book. I loved it! The story is being built upon in such an effortless way that it is almost as if it is happening right in front of me. The characters continue to grow and expand as individuals as more are introduced who come forth as full blown people. The tension continues to build pulling you further into their world and their lives. Though this is j...

    Intelligence is based on how efficient a species became at doing the things they need to survive.~Charles Darwin I thoroughly enjoyed the 4th book in the Extinction Cycle series. We are introduced to some new characters and get some much needed character development on some that were previously introduced. The Variants are evolving and it will take all the knowledge of every person left alive to figure out how to take them out.I truly appreciate ...
  • Yvonne
    Another winner in this zombie series, but I'm getting exhausted for all involved. I'm hopeful that #5 will wrap up the series nicely.
  • Laurel
    Fans of this series won't be disappointed to pick up this next instalment in the Extinction saga. Well written and fast-paced, Smith's writing continues to be of a quality that draws you right into the heart of the action and holds you there. The characters were still in my head a good couple of days after I finished the book.In Extinction Evolution we get another roller-coaster ride as Beckham and Kate - and a few others - work to reclaim the wo...
  • Debbie Winfield
    Book four in this series is by far the best book yet. From the start there's tension and rightly so I was worried for the main characters in the book. No spoilers here but I was absolutely blown away with jaw dropping revelations throughout the book and devastating fight and action sequences towards the end of the book. The ending of the book was superb and finished with a cliffhanger that has me desperate for the release of book five which can't...
  • Kathy Ann'tie
    OK seriously, I don't know how I am going to be able to wait until February with this major of a cliff hanger. I think this was the best book yet. Team Ghost, The Variant Hunters and evolved Variants beyond belief! My heart is pounding, the end of this book was so full of action that my adrenaline was pumping and I wanted to be out there fighting right along with everyone else.There is a reason that Nicholas Sansbury Smith is #3 out of 100 on the...
  • Nomi
    Holy CowSeriously, I am so involved with these characters that at this point they better survive this apocalypse. I do really recommend these books to anyone who like military, apocalyptic and fantasy. It will fit any and all these categories. Can't wait to see what happens in the conclusion.
  • Deb
    It's about time Finally Kate tells Beckham she's with child. They should have sent their top team in the first time. Bureaucrats who needs them. Well written. Exciting and well worth reading.
  • Aletia
    This book is just like the other 3, it grabs you and pulls you in and keeps you wanting to see what's next! Find new friends, lose people along the way, and we find out very disturbing news on the Variants. One more book, and we'll have all the answers.
  • Shane Hough
    WonderfulLoved this book. Wish there were more like these out there. Cannot wait until the next one. To long of a wait.
  • Ed
    Awesome series. Looking forward to the next one.
  • Rita
    Non stop action!!!This is one of the best series I have ever read! Flesh eaters, military action, romance, politics, and more in just one series!
  • Tammy Stark-kennedy
    Great! Awesome! Can't get enough of this series. Fast paced, love the characters, action packed, can't put down until you finish it. Waiting on the next book.
  • M. Ro
    I most note the strong female leadership in this series. Regardless of gender, the characters are complex and engaging, but it is not the norm in this genre to come across so many badass women in one series.The action keeps coming strong, can't wait for the next one!
  • Ricardo
    Ok, I'm officially hooked to this series. The fourth entry of The Extinction Cycle was good but not as good as the previous book... Some repetitive stuff, an unnecessary character's death and I'm not so hot on the way "Variants" are evolving... If this continues I'm pretty sure book #5 will be a let down to an , otherwise, great apocalyptic series. On the other hand I'm intrigued on knowing how will this series end. On a down note, I thought book...
  • Loretta
    Well I just have to say that this book blew all my expectations out the window. This is definitely the best book in the extinction cycle series and one of the best books I have read this year. It blew my mind. The twists and the revelations in this book just…just…. IT BLEW MY MIND! If you are after an addicting story full of action, suspense, intrigue and heart felt emotion then look no further! (That sounds like such a cheesy advertising lin...
  • AudioBookReviewer
    My original Extinction Evolution audiobook review and many others can be found at Audiobook Reviewer.It’s not bad enough that the government created a special virus in order to create super soldiers; it’s not bad enough that the virus has now spread to civilians; it’s not bad enough that the world has less than a third of its human population due to the virus infected variants. No, none of that is bad enough – the government/command centr...
  • Ken
    Extinction Evolution (The Extinction Cycle #4) by Nicholas Sansbury Smith is a non-stop roller coaster ride of tension, excitement, military action, political intrigue, and an existential crisis for humanity.The cast of characters has expanded to include more scientists, Generals, fighting men, and politicians. There still is fall-out from the original secret biological mission to develop super soldiers. As new characters come on the scene, it is...
  • Jenny
    Another great installment to the series! This fourth book did not let me down. I've read the previous three prior and I wasn't sure if it could get better but it did! Smith introduces some new characters that eventually weaves into the story well. I'm glad that some new characters were added to help because it gave hope that there actually might still be a chance that humans can survive. The variants are evolving at an alarming rate, all of them ...

    One last ride before the endThis entry is again heavy on action and pain. In the aftermath of the shootout between Team Ghost and Wood's people life on Plum island is once again changing, Reed waits to be jailed for his actions and Kate is keeping life changing secrets. Our world once again expands as we learn more about the people in Central Command and Ghost must brave the Raven Rock facility in efforts to get supplies Kate and Ellis need to de...
  • Joanne
    I cannot wait for the last book. This one was brilliant, almost non-stop action from start-to-finish, with many of the characters we've come to know either in peril for the entire book or in peril as the book ended.You can literally feel the variants swarming around you and imagine the hopelessness people would feel as swarms overtook them. The writer of this series is excellent. In books like these, you usually know that somehow the heroes will ...
  • Monique
    I cannot believe how many people loved this novel. Sure it was good, but 4.38 stars good? That means this book is better than The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood, World War Z by Max Brooks and The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch. That just seems too outrageous. This novel follows Dr. Kate Lovato and Team Ghost as they try to eliminate the variants and the danger they pose to the dwindling human population that is left. Kate uses science ...
  • Todd
    Yet another phenomenal chapter in the Extinction Series Once again Smith has outdone himself. From the start of the book to the end the reader is taken on a terrifyingly enjoyable thrill ride. It's difficult to out this book down until the end and the ending leaves you grasping for more! This book continues the Extinction Series where the last book left off. Our heroes find themselves outnumbered by a monster that has caused the apocalypse to arr...
