Summary

Channel Two predicted a blanket of snow for Thanksgiving weekend - unusual, but not alarming for the little Maine island. What comes is a blinding blizzard, and a mass disappearance of nearly every person Robby Pierce knows. He and his family flee, trying to escape the snow and the invisible forces stealing people right from the street. 

Miles away, Brad Jenkins battles the same storm. Alone, he attempts to survive as snow envelops his house. When the storm breaks, Brad makes his way south to where the snow ends and the world lies empty.

Join Brad, Robby, and the other survivors as they fight to find the truth about the apocalypse and discover how to live in their new world.

Great listen!

I read/listen to alot of apocalyptic horror and was surprised to find a new and original storyline in this book. I am very much looking forward to the next book in the series being released on audiobook.

Great book.

I loved this book. I thought it would be a totally different story then it was. Loved the survivor story it developed into. Very happy that I went with my gut and got this book. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Very chilling story!

Extinct is a fine mixture of sci-fi an horror. Shifted to the side of horror. It has extremely fine twists/turns throughout the book. Because of the extreme horrific events, it made the story unpredictable. That is not a bad thing. Anyway, Ike Hamill has a winner on his hands. I will soon be picking up the next book in the series. I highly recommend this book. Now for the obligatory: "I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review."

A Better "Yesterday's Gone"

This book starts out pretty strange, and then it gets stranger. For a while I was ready to give up in it, thinking it was kinda directionless and just being odd for the sake of being odd. But then about half way through it starts to tie the story up and get some direction. After that the story really draws you in, and I was happy I stuck with it. It had a similar feel to Yesterday's Gone without but with only one narrator and two POV characters (which I though made it easier to follow). The story had a few plot holes and was shaky at times, but overall it was pretty good. The narration was perfect. I'd say of you enjoy strange sci-fi like Yesterday's Gone or Welcome to Night Vale, this one is for you.

I received this book for free in exchange for a fair review.

Are they even human?

One of my creative writing professors in college said it best. “Don’t tell them (your readers). Show them.” He meant by using the method of fleshing out characters, building worlds and situations, and by never giving away your true story or plot ‘til the very end. This author did none of that. Within the first hour of the book, he had a character, a 13 year old boy, already talking about extinction and that was only after a few people disappeared (and that was done “off screen”). The so called “scary” parts were barely a blip in the radar. And the way the rest of the characters reacted when people snatched in unbelievable ways right in front of them was beyond nonexistent (these were friends and family who were just snatched and they were like “oh, well, let’s keep going”). I’m only a couple hours in and am struggling to keep going. I really wanted to like this book but there are far better ones like Koontz’s The Taking or Brant’s The Dark. Save your credit or buy those.

An extremely odd tale for sure!

In Extinct we follow two survivors of a massive snow storm; the Robby Pierce family and Brad Jenkins a widower who lives several miles away. As our survivors head out looking for safety and supplies they discover an alarming lack of people. As time goes by they find people are being taken up into the sky to disappear. Reminds me of the Rapture, but no similarity is referred to. Other startling discoveries involve all-consuming pools of water that absorbed anything coming in contact. Ultimately Robby and Brad’s path cross. There are several other survivors, but their stories are just as vague and confusing as Brads. There are plenty of theories and conspiracies, but no one seems to know what has happened or why. Robby has a weird theory about a sentient organism to the north that intends to take over the earth. Somehow he convinces the other survivors and off they go to find and stop this hypothetical organism. An extremely odd tale to be sure, but it’s just curious enough to get to the ending; such as it was. This audiobook was given by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom.
