Overview

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 different people, and 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.

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.

Mr. Johnson set the stage for a great series in this book. To me he made the characters very real and the situation believable. I found this book very enjoyable and it had me on the edge of my seat wanting to start the next right away.

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. I can't wait to get my hands on the 2nd installment!

I read this book in one sitting, and can't wait for the next edition! I also appreciate the length of the book as it left me wanting more. I'm keen to find out red's secret!
*spoiler alert* I especially liked the revealing of the virus stages in the "zombies" the bursting is deliciously gross :)
Oscar Brown
An interesting start to the series. The virus/ bacteria is very well described and terrifying.
Natalja Bleau
Exciting story. Could not put the book down. Cannot wait to read the follow up.....superb author, keeps you on the edge of your seat.
