I was really looking forward to the conclusion of the series, but the third book is a real let-down. What made the first two special were the persistent menace, the mind-blowing things that were happening and our constant feeling of fear for the main character. The evolutions of the alien forms as the transformation of earth took place were creative and disturbing, and the characters were put through terrible things. All great stuff. But in the third book, there is no threat, no character development. The only danger the protagonists are in is created by them by their stupid actions.

The new characters are ciphers; Jacob is a nonentity. Overall the book disappoints primarily because there is no character arc for Emily. She has not learned anything by the end; she is not changed by the experience. As soon as the sailors set foot on shore, the book descends into aping terrible run of the mill action movie dialog. The main part of the book is basically suspense building, leading up to... nothing. The final revelations in the book are a massive letdown; the actions of the enemy do not make sense and lack internal logic. Vastly disappointing on every level, particularly since the author had created something quite good in the first couple of books.

This is the third book in the series and was originally going to be the last in a trilogy, but paul has hinted that there could be other books added to the extinction point theme.
This book is an enjoyable read and i wasn't dissapointed with some of the ideas used in the book, the alien world is unknown (hence the word alien) and anything could be possibly feasible. The book is not overly exciting but held enough curiosity to keep me hooked, i finished the book feeling satisfied with the overall content. You need to read the two previous books first and if they have stirred enough interest it's worth reading this third book, i don't think you will be disappointed!

Kindle sale purchase.

I purchased a load of kindle titles recently and so I cant review the titles themselves yet. My reason for 5 stars is because of the price and the overview sounds great.

I will be back later to provide a comprehensive review of this book.

The final book of the Extinction series? Well maybe not, as I have been reliably told (by the author no less) that at least another book is on the way and maybe more.

The ties up some lose ends, but unravels a few more - leaving the way open for another book (or books)

If you read the first two books, then read this - now! :-)

It was a very interesting book to read you seem to go from one disaster to another looking forward to the next book

I was so lucky, I got the first of the Extinction point book, and it was so good I just had to have the other three.
Among the most interesting I have ever read, wish there were a lot more of them. Elizabeth.

A bit miffed the way the third book ended. Lib democratic ECO warriors from the realms of deep space decide we should all die in order to save the planet.

It would have been better if Emily and the dog had perished and society ended full stop. It was all a bit rushed really.
