Review quote

"A blistering, high octane thrill ride to the brink of humanity's extinction. Nicholas Sansbury Smith plunges the reader right into the middle of the action, alongside a cast of unforgettable characters, as they fight tooth and nail to survive one impossible mission after another-to stop an extinction level virus. The Extinction Cycle series is post-apocalyptic, military science fiction at its best. Highly addictive!"--Steven Konkoly, USA Today bestselling author of The Jakarta Pandemic on The Extinction Cycle "Nicholas Sansbury Smith combines plausible science with fast-paced military action in an epic juggernaut that races along at supersonic speed. Fans of the genre are sure to love it!"--Russell Blake, bestselling author of The Day After Never on The Extinction Cycle p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 14.0px Calibri; -webkit-text-stroke: #000000} span.s1 {font-kerning: none} "A blistering, high octane thrill ride to the brink of humanity's extinction.

Highly addictive!"--Steven Konkoly, USA Today bestselling author of The Jakarta Pandemic on The Extinction Cycle "With Extinction Horizon, Nicholas Sansbury Smith delivers unrelenting, unmerciful action to his readers, and he weaves it seamlessly with just enough scientific know-how that after each chapter you're left looking around and wondering not IF this is going to happen, but WHEN."--D. J. Molles, author of The Remaining on Extinction Horizon "An action-packed page-turner... You won't be able to put this book down until the last searing page. And they you'll want the next book."--Mike Shepherd, New York Times bestselling author of the Kris Longknife series on Helldivers "A terrific blend of high-concept and wild action, all tied together with tough-as-nails characters that you care for as they face impossible odds. A must for fans of smart post apocalyptic storytelling."--Sam Sisavath, author of the Purge of Babylon series on Helldivers "Military SF readers and fans of The Last Ship will find enjoyment in familiar ground."--Publishers Weekly on Helldivers Helldivers offers genre fans everything they could ask for, from fresh takes on the post-apocalypse to social commentary reminiscent of Snowpiercer, and plenty of action."--Shelf Awareness on Helldivers "Relentless action and danger in a gritty post-apocalyptic world where survival depends on a few brave men and women. Helldivers is one hell of a page-turner!"--Bob Mayer, New York Times bestselling author of the Area 51 series on Helldivers "An exciting new take on the end of the world and a thrilling race to survive... Sure to delight fans of survival and post-apocalyptic thrillers."--A. G. Riddle, author of The Atlantis Gene on Helldivers "It's great pulp.... The effect is something akin to watching movies like Independence Day and They Live. In other words, it's bound to be a cult classic."--Men's Journal on Orbs "Extinction Horizon is a roller coaster ride of fear and adrenaline that you will not want to put down. Nicholas Sansbury Smith once again separates himself from the masses with a brilliantly entertaining post-apocalyptic thriller."--W. J. Lundy, author of Only the Dead Live Forever on The Extinction Cycle "Fast-paced military action meets cool, cutting-edge science. Extinction is no longer a Darwinian battle of the fittest. It's a race for survival."--E. E. Giorgi, author of Chimeras on The Extinction Cycle
