After the prologue I felt I was getting into an enjoyable but fairly traditional adventure story. After a while I had forgotten the prologue and the scenario it offered. I think this was because the plot kept moving forward at a good pace with spectacular crises and disasters to keep me occupied. The characters were what I would expect from such an adventure story.
As things progressed though I noticed that unlike other disaster adventure books, this one did not veer away from the really big and dreadful scenes. Many other books will threaten such events but never actually offer them up.
The last couple of chapter and the epilogue however were what prompted me to give the 5th star. I kept thinking that the book was ending but then came the final corner of the story. I could not have guessed what lay round it. The big picture thinking of the author was breathtaking and left me almost a little stunned. A most enjoyable book
I had high hopes for this book and it didn’t let me down. When I first read the authors debut book Origin I found myself initially a little incredulous at the scope of the book. But then I re-read the book and found myself marvelling at the brass balls of the author, his ambition, drive and imagination to cover so many of the unanswered questions in the world, so many conspiracies under one book cover.
That however gave me a set of expectations for book 2, and initially my first read didn’t deliver that same ballsy scope, but then instead it delivered a quality thriller, and built to a world defining action packed book. One with great characters, ambitious global implications, high octane action and some very tight sparse fast paced writing.
As per book one JT Brannan keeps the reader guessing throughout the book, the edge of the seat action means that the book can easily be a single sitting read, 400 pages goes so fast. Its a real testament to the writing style, skill and the plot of the book.
I’m not going to explore the plot its self, the product description gives enough flavour, anymore is too open to spoilers. Suffice to say, nothing is as it seems, big brother is watching you, and nothing is to crazy and idea, it may just be true.
One woman, though, clings on to hope. Alyssa Durham is a journalist and when an old friend is murdered right in front of her, having just told her that not all of these catastrophes are natural, she sets out to investigate, travelling northwards to a secret facility hidden in the ice. She meets Jack Murray, a scientist who works there who had know her dead friend, and the two of them have a race against death itself to try and identify the forces against them and the planet. But nothing is certain, nothing or noone can be relied upon. In the end, extinction might become mankind's only certainty.
I thoroughly enjoyed J.T. Brannan's first thriller, Origin, and so I couldn't read Extinction fast enough, putting it straight to the top of the reading pile on its arrival. I'm delighted to say that I found Extinction even better that Origin, and I was refreshed to find that this was another entirely standalone thriller, unrelated to the first, with a new set of characters and, because of that, the potential for any amount of surprises and shocks.
As with Origin, we're in the territory of spectacular disaster. No punches are pulled in Extinction - it's not one nation that's threatened, it's the entire human species.Read more ›
Very clever Mr Brannan, very clever.
The book reads like a routine race against time thriller which it is in essence..........but, well just wait.

this book is a roller coaster ride from start to finish, an excellent readPublished 15 months ago by Annie Moore
Terrible, no cohesion, tries to cover up ropey plot and slow place with unnecessary 'action' sequences. Read morePublished 17 months ago by ConnArtiste
Extinction by J.T. Brannan
I will start by saying I really enjoyed "Origin", and for that reason read "Extinction", soon after. Read more
Great story and timeline. The plot moves through at at great pace.
Great ending, never saw that coming. Highly recommended
Yes it was exciting though the plot was unrealistic. A President would have taken a leading role in investigating this scenario near the beginning of this story. Read morePublished on 25 July 2014 by Roger Matthews
