Overview

(Price of all four parts separately £3.08/$5.12 or buy them as an omnibus for only £1.53/ $2.56)

Mankind is no longer at the top of the food chain.

The Sixth Extinction is an apocalyptic tale about a pandemic that sweeps the globe, decimating the human race, leaving humanity struggling to survive. Within three weeks everything has changed. Social structure has collapsed. The police are non-existent, and the army concentrates on the cities. Gangs of yobs rule the streets. It becomes everyone for themselves.

The story follows three main characters, Noah, Red and Doctor Melanie Lazaro, as well as Betty and her simpleminded grandson, and a Squad of military personnel. It follows all their journeys of self-discovery through the changing world.

Noah Morgan is just an average twenty-one-year-old. He has no aspirations in life, no girlfriend, few friends, and a dead-end job. Red is a nineteen-year-old female runaway, with a sad past and a disturbing secret. Together they leave behind everything they have ever known, looking for a safe haven.

Betty and her grandson Lennie are just trying to stay alive, and find somewhere safe to hide while they try to make sense of all the madness around them.

The Squad is a small group of military personnel who are trying to get back to the safety of their large base – a base that holds a secret.

Doctor Melanie Lazaro is working around the clock, under military supervision, in Exeter University’s Biomedical Sciences Department, trying to create a cure for the new pandemic that is turning humans back to their primordial roots, creating mindless killing machines with only one purpose - to eat.

The four-part series is a fast-paced story, all set within a twenty-four-hour time-frame.

Editorial Reviews

Amazon UK 5 star review - Adam C.
I really enjoyed this series, totally different take on the usual zombie apocalypse so wasn't sure at first what I would make of it but it was great, very well written and enjoyable from start to finish. Defiantly will be reading more of this writer's works.
Amazon UK 5 star review - Oscar Brown
An interesting series. The virus/ bacteria is very well described and terrifying!
Amazon USA 5 star review - Mindy Kopelke
For what this is, and what genre this is great storytelling. If you like plausible events and believable characters with your horror you will love this.
Amazon UK 5 star review - Suzy Q.
I found this book absorbing from the first page, It was refreshing to have this type of genre based in Britain rather than America I liked how the characters Noah and Red, each had a story to tell, the book takes you on different chapters through their own perspective of the events around them albeit they were together. The end left me wanting more,
Amazon USA 5 star review - Jemini W.
This was my first sampling of Glen Johnson's work. I am a Sci-Fi fanatic and I found Mr. Johnson's take on end-of-the-world zombie apocalypse to be fresh, new and a really fun read. The writing is descriptive and generates vivid imagery that helps the reader to fall into the story quickly.
