A new monster emerges.
Newly christened as the leader of Delta Force Team Ghost, Master Sergeant Joe Fitzpatrick arrives in Normandy over 70 years after Allied Forces joined the fight against the Nazis. The war to free survivors and eradicate pockets of adult Variants and their offspring is underway by the European Unified Forces. But as the troops push east, rumors of a new type of monster spread through the ranks. Fitz and his new team quickly realize that the fight for Europe might be harder than anyone ever imagined.
They thought the war for America was over, but the war, for some, has just begun.
Back in the States, Captain Reed Beckham and Dr. Kate Lovato are settling into a new life on Plum Island. Across the United States, the adult Variants have all been wiped out, and the juveniles are on the run. But survivors soon realize there are other monsters at home, and they may be human.

This has got to be the best series of books I have ever read, listened to, owned and heard of. They're absolutely impossible to put down and I had to listen to each book all in one go. I found myself really caring about the characters and when one died (not telling you who) I actually cried, that's how well written these books are. Nicholas Sansbury Smith is an amazing author and for anyone who says Bronson Pinchot is a dull or monotone reader, please stick with it as he gets much, much better, he absolutely gets into the books and really brings them to life. The best end of the world full of nasties books I have ever read, and I read a hell of a lot.
"more terrifying than what we’ve heard before"
Extinction Aftermath (The Extinction Cycle Book 6) by Nicholas Sansbury Smith is well worth the wait! Not only do we see Delta Force Team Ghost’s Master Sergeant Fitz take lead but he helps to storm the beach in Normandy to help eradicate the European Variants that have been left to grow, mutate and become even more deadlier than the ones in the US.
Beckham and Horn are in retirement and not really enjoying it. So when President Gringhold calls upon them for a special project, they jump at the opportunity to re-engage. There’s another new bad-ass guy in the US hoping to take down the fragile government and doesn’t really care about the recovery of the US. Time will only tell who is worse – the Variants or him!
The new monsters in Europe are … well, more terrifying than what we’ve heard before. This book is particularly gruesome and pulls on the heartstrings and ripping them out. If you love horror and Team Ghost – this is the book for you. This is not for the squeamish or soft-hearted.
Smith is a vivid storyteller that describes everything in rich detail eking out each terrifying moment. His characters are fully developed – even the ones that have a brief appearance. Action packed and riveting. This tells the story of what happens in the US afterwards and what happens in Europe when there is no coordination of efforts.
I enjoyed listening to Bronson Pinchot. He is a wonderful narrator capturing the character traits of each character and making them come alive with tone, and excitement. Mr. Pinchot makes the book come alive as only a top-notch narrator can. His tone is calming but when he speeds up and adds in the excited emotions, it only gets better.

Love this series! Hits the floor running and comes back to all my favorite characters. Bronson Pinchot nails it again with his stellar narration. His cadence and tempo keep you on the edge of your seat!
Nicholas Sansbury Smith did not disappoint. This book continues the story of Team Ghost. Following Fitzpatrick as the team's new leader, you watch as he makes impossible decisions and faces Variants that make the Starship Troopers enemies look like play toys.
Then Reed is trying to live his life as peacefully and safely as one can at the end of the world. He is also praying that things improve for his unborn child. This hope is soon trashed as a new enemy appears. One that may make the fight with the mutated Juveniles a cake walk.
Smith manages to keep you on the edge of your seat with a great story and plot twist that I didn't expect. You will not be disappointed if you read or listen to this book.
"Best series I have ever read"
I can not wait for book 7
Once you start this series you can't put it down
Well done. One of his best novels in this series. A reader's delight. Cant wait for next installment.
"Bringing back the action"
Definitely right up there with the best of them.
He definitely brings the story to life in a way I don't always get from narrators. Its nice to have someone who can properly do different voices and characters, and who reads at a comfortable cadence.
Really hard to beat Fitz. He's the kind of guy you wish you could be. Fights against adversity and fights against the apocalypse.
Great beginning to a new chapter in the ongoing war against the Variants. As Fritz heads to Europe to assist in the fight against the Variants, he is unaware of the new species of Variants(many, many new species) that has mutated beyond what even they could imagine and Europe may already be lost before he arrives. Beckham is about to learn that there is no such thing as a safe zone as a new enemy rises determined to kill and destroy any who stand in his way, including releasing the deadly virus again just to prove his point. And Lt Davis is doing what she does best; Kicking ass and taking names and this time her actions or inactions may very well decide the future of humans in the Continental US.
Although the battles are spread across the country and world they all have a one thing in common and NSS has blended their stories/struggles seamlessly. And as usual the cliff hanger leaves you gritting your teeth, or in my case a very loud ARRRRGGGG!!! Definitely another winner.
"Love this series"
Not long enough lol. Want more! The book is great, the series is awesome! I'm not really into a lot of books and for me to listen to books 1-6 that should say something. The story is gripping and as it's being read you can almost see it happening.
"As always, a great listen!"
What a great addiction to a great series! Leaves you wanting more, can't wait for the next one!
This book keeps you on edge. We'll written and narrated. Can't wait for the next book.
