"Extinction Lost" is a short story that should be read after book 6, Extinction Aftermath. NOTE: This story was originally published in SNAFU: Black Ops.
The war continues ...
Two days after the events of Extinction Aftermath, European Unified Command calls on Team Ghost for a top secret mission. The residents of a small Inuit fishing village in Greenland have gone missing and reports of Variants unaffected by Kryptonite have surfaced.
Fatigued, injured, and unaware of the events back in the United States, Master Sergeant Joe Fitzpatrick leads Team Ghost into the remote and alien winter landscape to determine the fate of the missing villagers. But as the operation unfolds they discover a harrowing revelation that could impact the world war against the Variants, and the future of the human race.

This is the last time I buy a Nicholas Sansbury Smith book! WHAT A RIP OFF!! 29 minutes is a chapter NOT a book!!!! COMPLETE WASTE OF MONEY! I was a fan and now I'm not!!
"Exciting, Emotionally Charged! Can't Wait for what's Next!"
Nicholas Sandburg Smith's exciting story puts the reader in touch with the thoughts and feelings of the marines or soldiers on the Ground. They are cut off from the rest of the war. They are lonely, afraid, tired and wounded but they keep pushing regardless of everything to complete their mission. Some are more likeable than others but they are all brave and keep fighting even in the midst of their fear. The refrain, "All It takes is all you have" frames the story and moves it along, keeping us always grounded in the feelings of the "grunt" on the ground.
I read this story quickly in Snafu anthology and enjoyed it very much. It was when I listened to it on Audible that I was able to appreciate the depth of the characterization and the writing technique that put me in the characters shoes. I loved this story!
What a great short story. I was glad to hear more of the of story was coming out . I wish it was longer. I can't wait to hear the next chapter in this series. Let I hope that more full length books come out soon to keep this story going.
"No breaks for team ghost"
Team Ghost, led by Fitz, is at it again and have been tasked with a short recon/intel gathering mission. Now in Greenland, the team is now on a mission to figure out why VX9H9 did not have the desired effects at an old Nazi bunker. Much like all of Smith's previous works, this short story packs a quick punch of adrenaline filled action and brings about the hybrids. If you've made it this far and have completed "Aftermath", give this short story a listen to continue on the fight against the variants as we await "War". Easily a 5-star short story.
The extinction series is the best I have heard. I first found star wars in audible then almost ended it when I found this series I have been hooked every since. I have enjoyed each and every book and can't wait for more by Nicholas sansberry, with Bronson p. As the reader hopefully as he brings the series to life in a special way. Please write many more in the series ( the longer the better ) I would love more in another series as well. I actually hated books until I found the extinction cycle while I was out of work from having knee surgery. Thank you for sharing your imagination with the world!
"Great Short adventure in the extinction series"
What better than a short adventure to bridge the gap between aftermath and war. Although this short book doesn't have the normal depth and build up like most NSS books it's still a great edition to the whole story with some suspense and thriller aspects you would expect from Nicholas. Even if you haven't read the other books in the series this could be a starting point to get a feel for what the rest of the extinction cycle world is all about.
Another great ecycle story. Smith delivered another suspenseful story with great characters and even scarier monsters.
"Goddammit this was good!!!"
Loved it and way too short! Fitz has stepped up big time. I can't wait for the next book in the series!
"Seriously, listen to this series!"
Omg! This was over too quickly! I've missed the whole crew since the ending of the last book. This was such an awesome twist to the story. When we think of the end of times, we want people like the characters on Team Ghost. I can't wait for the next chapter. If you want a well written story with realistic, loveable heros, cursed and hated villains, and a plot that keeps you in suspense, read this series. If you want to listen to a series that is read by an animated and interesting voice, listen to this series. Truly the combination of Nicholas and Bronson is just beyond words.
"Fantastic short story!"
Loved hearing about Fitz and Apollo, and their stories in Europe. And now this quick story about their trip back. Really enjoyed it!
"Nice Short Story"
Story picks up where the last book left off. Story gets even more interesting and leaves room for the next chapter in this series.
