My rating: 4 of 5 stars



I really enjoyed this followup to Extinction & the way it left off definitely has me anticipating the final installment. We pick right up with Emily, joined by Thor, on her way to meet James in Alaska. She runs into a family still in their home when she reaches Styvesant, NY & I was really surprised by how much of the story took place there. James & the Commander of the ISS conference call with Emily to explain to her the urgency of getting out of her location as the red storm is swiftly approaching her location & it added to the overall suspense as time ticked away & the situation spiraled & became ever more dangerous. The escape was narrow enough that I was worried about the trip to Alaska being put off for a time indeterminate but alas that was not the case. The instances of death were well done & I was surprised how much I felt for those characters as they were not around very long. Very well done. Also, I loved the big surprises upon Emily & Co. reaching Alaska & the final destination. I don't know what's to come but I look forward to reading the next one.
