Rather than give a summary of the plot and risk spoiling it for others or adding too much to the "product description" I will offer my general reaction to the story.

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

Review

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.

By Kate TOP 500 REVIEWER on 27 Feb. 2014
Format: Paperback
Animals turn against humans, planes fall from the sky, earthquakes rip continents apart and tsunamis drown islands. When a giant religious statue is seen to tilt backwards, its head and hands turning to the heavens, it is no surprise that spiritual leaders (official or otherwise) and their followers believe that God has turned his eyes away from humanity and that life on Earth is about to end.

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.

Its not often you dont see the twist coming at the end of a book. This was heading for a 2 star below average rating until the epilogue. At only 2 pages or so it is a short epilogue but by george I did not see that coming. I had to go straight back to the prologue and read that part again.
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.

I started this book and the first chapter was the kind of book that I like to read but from the next chapter it took a different turn and WOW it did not let me down. The ending was so say the least not what I expected but on reading the Epilogue it really explained it all and what an ending. Just could not put this book down. Please give it a try and then think of all the things that are happening now in this world we live in.

Really enjoyable read, I could hardly put it down. My only criticism is that I don't think the relationship between them needed to be intimate (trying not to give too much away here!). It was a bit cheesy and I don't think this really fit with the main story. Great otherwise though!
