    I’ve read about a dozen of NSS’s books at this point, but this is the first completed series of his that I’ve finished. I must say, that at 7 books, this series hits my limit for how many books in a series I’m willing to commit to. And that magic # for me is actually 7. Fortunately, NSS knows just how to finish up a series without making me feel let down. Not everything is perfectly tied up, not everyone lives, and not everyone gets an HE...

    "All it takes is all you got, Marines."This seventh book in the EXTINCTION CYCLE series was non-stop action from page one to the very end. And this book is quite a doorstopper of a tale at 450+ pages. The Hemorrhage Virus has spread worldwide, leaving monstrous Variants in its path. The remaining humans have divided into two camps - those loyal to the U.S. President and those those following a sadistic psychopath.Fitz and Team Ghost are in Europe...

    I don't know what to say about this book to do this justice!!! It was phenomenal. Everything I wanted and more. It's all out war, both with the Variants and ROT! The battle for Europe is still going strong and Fitz and Apollo are knee deep in it. The Variants there are bigger, badder and harder to destroy than what they had in America, and it's all Fitz can do to keep Team Ghost alive. Meanwhile, in America, Beckham is battered and bruised but st...

    In case the threat of the monstrous Variants and the pending extinction of the human race wasn't enough, Nicholas Sansbury Smith adds in some extra tension with the possibility of another civil war. Rogue, fanatical soldier Andrew Wood and his Resistance of Tyranny (ROT, an acronym that feels a bit too on-the-nose for this vicious homegrown squadron of terrorists) are attempting to undermine President Ringgold by unleashing the infectious Hemorrh...

    The end of the war is at hand. A civil war is at hand in th U.S. And Team ghost , the Marines and the rest of the European forces are trying to find victory in Europe. Beckman is down but not out and Fits is trying to live up to his role as the new leader of Team Gohst fighting in Europe. Reading this last chapter in A Great Series, I found my self going back to the first book and reliving Team Ghosts story again, their up and downs , losses , he...

    War has gone global!Of all the books in the Extinction Cycle series, this story was hands-down the most stressful for me to read in terms of its unrelenting suspense. Fierce battles are being waged. Humans are on the ragged edge in this fight for survival against the evolving Variants AND a power hungry human psychopath. From prologue to epilogue, Extinction War is a brilliantly crafted, 5 star page-turner. It is also not a book you want to start...

    Loved this book!! My favorite Extinction Cycle read yet. Non-stop action and a fantastic story line. This is one you don't want to put gown it's so good. Technically accurate and the flow is awesome. I highly recommend this series for those that enjoy military action, post apocalypse, and zombie-esque apocalypse action series. Very well written, I can't say this enough times.

    WHAT A WAY TO END A SERIES. THIS IS NICHOLAS SANSBURY SMITH AT HIS BEST. WOW. Hats off to Nicholas Sansbury Smith, what a way to end a series. This had been by far my most favorite series in all of kindle by one of the best Authors around. With Gunnery Sergeant Fitzpatrick and Team Ghost fighting for their lives in Europe and trying to make it safe over there, they have no idea what is happening with their friends and loved ones back in the Unite...

    I need to start this review with some honesty. This is the first Extinction Cycle book that I've read... You see, I've happily enjoyed the performance of Bronson Pinchot throughout the first 6 installments--- so this was a new experience for me. (I found myself trying to do Mr. Pinchot's voices in my head while reading and it made me appreciate him even more). Back to Extinction War-this book is the best piece of art Nicholas Sansbury Smith has p...

    The Extinction series was my first exposure to the work of Nick Smith. It hooked me from the start. With War, a great series comes to a dramatic end. This book has all the action of the earlier installments, and the climactic final scenes make it hard to put down. I particularly liked the Piero Angaran storyline; the humanity in this brave Italian soldier's friendship with a mouse, while the world crashes down around both of them, is an unexpecte...

    I literally read this in one day. I just couldn't stop once I started. This book is a perfect addition to the ECycle. As much as I'd like there to be more to the story, this feels like a perfect way to end it. I don't want to give anything away, but I found myself cheering, and crying, angry and happy, frustrated and joyful while reading War. I love this series, and I can't wait to see what NSS writes next.

    Wow!!! What a ride this series has been. From reading the very first book I knew I was on to a different style of an apocalyptic series. Definitely not your usual run of the mill monsters and this was completely refreshing to me. So I was hooked and quickly devoured the first 3 books in the series. Then I’ve had to wait not so patiently for the rest to be released but with each book the wait was worth it. Waiting for book 7 was no exception and...

    Nicholas Sansbury Smith does not disappoint n the book...the “end” of the series. The action continues with Team Ghost. Fitz leading the team into the jaws of war with a multitude of beasts. Dr. Kate is continuing to do research and Beckham is supposedly retired, but of course that won’t last. The action in Europe is vicious and in the U.S. traitors are attempting to overthrow what little stability there is. This book will take you on anoth...

    War is a fantastic culmination of the preceding books in the series. I do not even remember why I began reading the Extinction Cycle books, but with the first book all the way to War #7, the action, the attention to details combined with the genius of the imagination are absolutely astounding. Where most books about the post apocaliptic world do not directly define how it all started, Extinction Horizon (the first book in the cycle) pinpoints the...

    Fantastic ending to the series. I have loved this series from the start and this last book caps it off perfectly. Although I could read more of them a break from the adrenaline rush will do me good.You won't be disappointed with any part of this book even though it's the last one. There is some sadness when reading some of the deaths and joy with others. An absolute must read.

    I just finished this and again Nicholas Smith has created a story that keeps you on the edge of your seat. The action never stops and the story is fantastic. I love these characters and I am sorry to see them end. Can't wait to see Nick's next work!

    I enjoyed this book very much. Action packed, fast paced. The characters, some old, some new, vary between the good and the bad. The transition between the monsters as they continue to develop is both horrifying, and fascinating. I was given an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    A heart pacing, exceptionally harrowing, addition to the Extinction series. Nick Smith keeps the reader on pins and needles as they follow Fitz, Apollo and Team Ghost struggling to save Europe as they fight a loosing battle against all kinds of freaky mutating creatures. While back home, the President, Horn, and Capt. Beckham are in their own perilous mission fighting Wood and his men as they trick, deceive and sabotage to take over the US. Kate ...

    my absolute favorite!Nicholas Sansbury Smith is a fantastic author. And a marvelous storyteller. This is my FAVORITE series of his. I didn't think I could pick a favorite book in it, but surprisingly this one is it. We saw the world fall apart, but he writes about hope and surviving and humanity putting it all together again. For the good. Even though the bad tries. I love the science, and learning about the mutation (s). I don't agree with the c...

    Exciting, satisfying 5 Star Story from beginning to ending of series!I loved every book in this series. Often in even good series the story can fizzle out toward end but not in NSS's wild apocalyptic ride. The characters have become like family and I read with my heart pounding at what would happen to each of them. Each hero and heroines were true to themselves. They were brave, frighten and oh, so human. They each brought all they had to offer t...

    Highest possible recommendation!I think this one was my favorite of the series. A very good ending to a great series. There were super sad moments and very happy ones, all brought together by the bond of good people trying to save the world. Mr. Wood was a great villain as well, full-blown psychopath!What I love most about this series is that it is literally the scariest thing I've ever read. For this book, knowing that going in, I only read it d...

    NO!!!! This can't be the end! Is it just me or are there other out there like me who need more???Yes, I get that it ended in a good place and I see how it all came together but I just can't get over wondering what happens now. I NEED more. P.S. I would so marry Fitz! Good thing he's fictional because I would so be stalking I him otherwise.(Yes, this is a very girly comment for very manly books but ask me if I care: I don't)

    Extinction War was an excellent book and the author did not let his fans down one bit! Smith changes character perspectives throughout the book, which made the pages fly by. His prose and detailing created mental images for the reader and after putting the book down, it stays with you. Smith added a few plot twists that I didn't see coming, and while reading, so immersed in the story, my anxiety rose for the characters. This is a gift of a truly ...

    Team Ghost ForeverHow in the world does he do it? This being the last book in the series held my attention like it was the very first book. I'll forever be attached to team ghost. The author has no qualms about killing off favorite characters and this book is no different. I believe that's one of the many reasons that kept me on the edge of my seat till the very last word, no one was safe. If you've made it this far in the series you're fully awa...

    Extinction War is the 7th book in the Extinction Cycle series and it is mind-blowing! It's a culmination of many struggles, loss of lives and loved ones, wars, heart-break, and love. The story continues to build and towards the end of the book it felt like the words were tearing themselves from the pages at me. It was gripping and emotional seeing these characters that have become more than friends and family go through what they had to in order ...
