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.
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!
"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.

"Best series I have ever read"
I can not wait for book 7
Once you start this series you can't put it down
This book keeps you on edge. We'll written and narrated. Can't wait for the next book.
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.
"Aftermath.... And more!? "
I am sad it's over. Glad there is more. But after 6 books I can't believe the story continues. I thought that this was the end. The last book, but I was wrong. The writing is so good and it's the first time I've been hooked on an Audible books. I am looking forward to #7.
I'm torn because I thought 6 was the last one and I'm a sucker for an ending. But as book 6 continued I was wondering how it was going to end with so much left to finish. I was worried. Makes sense now. It's been a long time that I've had to wait for the next one and now I have this next one and his other book helldivers. Dammit Nicholas Sansbury Smith! Why are they so good?!?
"Love this series!!!"
Reed Beckham and team Ghost are Awesome! I've read all the books and cannot wait for the next one. I listen on Audible on my one hour drive to and from work daily! *it's much easier than reading and driving* I give this series 5 STARS!!!😀😀 I am a Zombie Apocalypse addict! If you are.....you will love this book. And PLEASE let Fitz, Apollo, Pierro and Ringo make it out alive along with Kate and Team Ghost!!!! *** write quickly**** All you have is all you need!!!!!
