Présentation de l'éditeur

Book 2 of the Extinction Point series

Reporter Emily Baxter survived the alien red rain that blanketed and annihilated the human race. But after the downpour, and the lethal contagion it spread, came an even greater horror: the rampant transformation of the dead into something utterly unearthly.

With a terrifying new form of life emerging from the mutated landscape, Emily’s only hope is to flee toward distant Alaska where she can unite with the survivors who have reached out to her from a remote science facility. The journey from New York will be long and painstaking, and Emily has only her faithful dog and whatever she can carry. But, after discovering a small family of refugees along the way, Emily’s determination to escape the unfolding catastrophe and carve out a new future is renewed. Standing in their way are Earth’s new masters, equally determined to survive and thrive, and possessed of monstrous capabilities Emily and her allies can’t begin to imagine…until they’re face to face with the hideous reality.

In the battle about to begin, there will be no room for mistakes or mercy—only the most ruthless instincts to survive.

Biographie de l'auteur

A native of Cardiff, Wales, Paul Antony Jones now resides in Las Vegas, Nevada. He has worked as a newspaper reporter and commercial copywriter, but his passion is penning fiction. A self-described science geek, he’s a voracious reader of scientific periodicals, as well as a fan of things mysterious, unknown, and fringe-related. That fascination inspired his first novel, Extinction Point, and its first sequel, Extinction Point: Exodus. Emily Baxter’s adventures will continue in future installments of the series.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Eagerly anticipated sequel fails to go anywhere... except to Alaska 3 juillet 2013
Par M. Trudgett - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
In spite of the first instalment's dragging, tedious narration and practical absurdities, the story was a real ripper; so much so that I pre-ordered Exodus and counted-down the days to its publication.

Whilst the author has managed to somewhat tighten-up his narrative, the book is short and little happens, though there are some interesting developments in the nature of the aliens. The 'twist' in the end (not to spoil it for dedicated fans-of-Emily) was so glaringly obvious (even from the first book) that when unveiled was entirely anti-climactic and left me with the feeling that this book didn't actually produce an ending but merely a pause before the next episode. I came away with the, perhaps cynical, feeling that this was one instalment (10 pages) in a formulaic magazine serial stretched a touch over 200 pages and written to a deadline.

Emily's weakness, mistakes, fears and loneliness (even in the presence of a teenage girl) round out her character, but she's still doing incredibly stupid things. It was when the astronaut in the ISS said, of the trek to Alaska "if anyone can do it, [Emily] can", that I lost all hope for humanity. With no electricity and scavenging the only means of obtaining fuel, she chooses to abandon the fuel siphon. With a gaping (cut) whole in the windscreen and the choice of 1) somehow fixing (taping) the (unbroken, toughened) glass disc into the whole (in which it fits "perfectly") so that the windscreen is still, well, transparent and wind and cold-proof, or (2) gaffer-taping cardboard/wood over the hole and most of the windscreen... You guessed it, our heroine chose option (2). Really? If an ISS astronaut saw that, they'd slap their own forehead and give up all hope, not praise it as in "If anyone can do it..."

I would agree with those of you who would say that this is 'nit-picking' - but it's symptomatic of a protagonist who never appears to THINK. If the aliens were aliens and the events in this series happened, Emily would have died on day two. I like it that she lived - survival against the odds! And, picky as I am, I actually did finish reading both books. They remain quite readable and entertaining, but lasting literature they are not.

Unfortunately, Exodus achieved little and the few improvements since Extinction Point (it's certainly more readable) are not enough - particularly in light of the weak ending - to provoke my interest in reading on.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Glad it was $3 on Kindle 9 juillet 2013
Par Michael - Publié sur Amazon.com

I enjoyed the first book and went straight to the second, but one of the reviews kept nagging at me .. "dumbest lead in a book ever" and as the second book progressed her never ending poor decisions slowly made me lose interest.

(Spoiler). Seriously, 4500km to get to Alaska and she clings to riding a bike .. Really?

She runs into a monstrous forest and instead of going around it (in her words she would lose 2 precious hours ... How about grabbing a car and covering 30km every 30 min instead of ever day?)

She is a seasoned rider and goes into a bike and a sporting good shop but decides on jeans and starts complaining about saddle soars? Really? Jeans? I am not a biker and I know they make pants for that.

Plus when she goes into her favourite bike shop (indicating knowledge) and she grabs that super high end bike .. Which she has been saving for months and months for ... Worth $1200. Really? $1200 is the best she can find in our biking insane culture?

She is facing and unknown alien horde and her only weapon? A shotgun with a single box of shells. Pretty sure NY would be chock full of guns and ammo.

She connects with the family and her new companion heads next door to grab a truck so they can drive out. 90 minutes later he isn't back and she says she will give him 30 more minutes when a huge red storm is approaching. Really? It is next door.

And when I finally bailed on the book, she drove down the gravel driveway having never drive before, at 50 mph in the pitch black knowing the road has to end at a street, crashing the vehicle.

And that is the last I read .. The predictable face off with the father converted into an alien while the children scream was just too much.

Too bad. Started out interesting.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Second book in series is better 14 juin 2013
Par ruth777 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I was hoping that the second book in the series would be better and it is, slightly. There was definitely less long-winded narration than in the first book, and it was more gripping, although there were a few grammatical errors I could have done without. If the aliens were as evolved as they are made out to be, then some things just did not make ANY sense! At times I did not understand why the author killed off certain characters and I am still not sure where he is taking this, but I am willing to buy the 3rd book. But then again, I am a sucker for apocalyptic novels, so what do I know?

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Just drive a damn car already! 31 octobre 2013
Par GuidoL - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I ordered this one by accident on Kindle, so I decided to give it a go. To escape the red plague and alien invasion, a newspaper reporter (Emily) rides a bike from NYC across the USA and Canada to the far flung reaches of Alaska to find a group of scientists and presumably safety...

Just drive a damn car already.
If there are lots of creepy aliens around, don't go anywhere without your shotgun.
Meets a nice family, convince them to come with you to Alaska, Dad gets killed by alien, rescue brother and sister, brother dies from alien attack, orphaned sister and Emily continue on..
When Emily does decide to drive..she crashes, SUV, Snowcat, etc...She spends ages and most of the book getting across New York state, then skips through Canada and across the finishline to Alaska where the non-driving NYC reporter drives Snowcat and a boat (in horrible weather).

Spoiler:

When she does get to Alaska...the "team of scientists" is just one guy in a wheel chair.

Ugh.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 These are NOT your cuddly ET aliens... 31 mars 2013
Par Cheryl Stout - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
After reading the first book - Extinction Point - in this post-apocalyptic series and absolutely loving it, I was thrilled when I was offered an Advanced Reading Copy of the second book in the series - "Extinction Point:Exodus."

If you haven't read the first book, you really should because it is an excellent example of this genre. BUT it's not totally necessary because author Jones fills in enough of the backstory so that this book will make sense to you.

Emily continues her fight for survival against the alien horde that has decimated our beloved planet. The blood rain came, wiping out almost the entire population of Earth. Then strange things started happening with the bodies of the dead. Strange trees with horrifying fruit and monstrous aliens appear and Emily has hardly left New York City.

MINOR SPOILER ALERT:
She is on her way to northern Alaska to meet with a small group of survivors in the Stockton Islands. She travels with her trusty canine friend, Thor the Malamute. One smart thing - she decides to teach herself to drive rather than trying to make the treacherous journey to Alaska on her bicycle, as in "Extinction Point." One thing - she learns to drive incredibly quickly (I guess having aliens on your a** is a good incentive).

Jones continues with great character development on Emily in this second book. There could have been a bit more fleshing out of the few other characters (I won't ruin your surprise as to who they are) but the book flows well and is definitely a keeper for my library.
