THE SIXTH EXTINCTION

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.

THE FIRST THREE WEEKS

The four part series is a prelude to The Sixth Extinction series.

We get to see what happened within the first three weeks of the outbreak from the point of view of the five main characters, set out in four books.

Editorial Reviews

Amazon UK 5 star review - James Shone
If you enjoy zombie-style apocalyptical stories, this is well worth reading.
Good characters; fast paced adventure. really enjoyed reading this series.
Amazon USA 5 star review - Diane Sigler
This is the first I have read from Glen Johnson. I'm a zombie geek, but not easy to please where my stories are concerned. I loved the many different characters and going in depth into their lives just prior to the infection. I loved the interesting twist on the type of zombies and how the infection was spread. I recommend this Omnibus Edition to anyone who enjoys the zombie genre.
Amazon UK 5 star review - L. Osburn
This series has been by FAR the best set of books I have read in a long time, and I'm not ashamed to say that I sat down and read all 8 of them over a 24 hour period. I reached the end and wanted more, but I'm so glad there are more books that continue the saga. Glen Johnson has become my new favourite author, and I can't wait to read more of his books. I can honestly see this doomsday type scenario happening!
Amazon UK 5 star review - Gordon Kirby
I have thoroughly enjoyed this series and hope there is more to follow. It is a real page turner from start to finish and doesn't disappoint. Well written and the plot twists and turns and takes you to places you didn't expect. After reading the first three parts and waiting for the next instalment ,I sought out some of the authors other books which are also highly recommended.Good to see all the books in one volume and at an incredibly low price.
Amazon UK 5 star review - A.Z. Reader
The books are fast paced, well written, thought out, and full of some of the best twists and turns that you will never see coming. I highly recommend The sixth extinction series to any reader, especially anyone that likes apocalyptic tales and the like but i think these books would appeal to most any reader they are that well written. I can honestly say after reading these books Mr. Johnson has made it into the top of my favorite authors list.
