Summary

Would you risk it all to save your family?

The Hemorrhage Virus tore through America and swept the globe, leaving no country untouched. New Zealand was no exception. Those infected mutated into monsters, monsters that became known as Variants.

Seven weeks have passed since Jack and Dee's quiet world shattered. Along with a small band of survivors, they fled to Mayor Island. Determined to help stem the Variant scourge, they volunteer for what remains of the army. Led by Captain Ben Johns, a grizzly retired NZ SAS soldier, they are sent on a dangerous mission to rescue a scientist. They must call on all their skills and courage to overcome a deadly foe.

They thought the worst was over, but humanity's fight for the future of mankind has just begun. Evil forces have a score to settle with the survivors in New Zealand.

Humanity fights back in Variant plagued NZ!

Following on from the outstanding debut of author Adrian J Smith. The Fourth Phase picks up 7 weeks after the events in The Rule of Three. Jack and Dee have teamed up with Ben and two others to form the Renegades. Thrown back into the hellish landscape. I loved the edition of Maori warriors and learning about some of their culture. The character Boss was an inspiration, missing leg and all. The author really knows how to paint a picture as if you are right there amongst. I'm really liking the narrator too.
looking forward to book 3.

Incredible!

Another amazing entry into the Extinction Cycle universe by Adrian Smith. Raphael does an absolutely perfect narration that makes the story flow so intriguingly and emotionally flowing through the epic world Adrian has created in this version of apocalyptic New Zealand. The story makes you think and really reflect on what a real apocalypse might look like. How humans would react, adapt, and ultimately align themselves in a new world where we are no longer at the top of the chain.

Great sequel

Loved this book. The characters are so real including the character of New Zealand itself! Adrian paints New Zealand in such a way that it has a life of its own, it’s culture and it’s people come alive in his writing. For that alone this book is well worth reading, add in the fast paced thrilling storyline and it’s a definite must read!
