Présentation de l'éditeur

Book 3 of the Extinction Point series

There is nowhere left to run. In the wake of the deadly plague that virtually annihilated the human race, a vast red jungle teeming with alien creatures and lethal plants is devouring Earth, swallowing buildings whole and ruthlessly decimating what life remains. A witness to the terrifying transformation, survivor Emily Baxter thinks the odds against humanity can’t get any worse.

She is wrong.

The thrilling conclusion to the bestselling Extinction Point series, Revelations takes a humanity on the brink of devastation…and throws it over the edge!

Biographie de l'auteur

A native of Cardiff, Wales, Paul Antony Jones now resides near Las Vegas, Nevada, with his wife. 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 on the fringe. That fascination inspired the Extinction Point series.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Just awful conclusion to a promising trilogy 13 avril 2014
Par James Tepper - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I barely know where to start. EXTINCTION POINT was an original, gripping sci-fi romp through the end of the world as we know it. It was a neat combination of post-apocalyptic horror and adventure featuring 20-something Emily who is the only survivor of a red rain that falls and kills everyone and everything in New York (and everywhere else), and mutates all plant and animal life into strange and deadly forms. The second part, EXODUS (EXTINCTION POINT, BOOK 2) follows Emily on an arduous trek north to Alaska to meet up with a group of other survivors. Although some readers complained about some less-than-brilliant decisions and moves on Emily's part, and the draggy nature of the journey, I also liked the second novel very much and was looking forward to the last installment.

Which brings us to REVELATIONS (EXTINCTION POINT BOOK 3). I have no idea what happened to the author, to Emily or to the old and new cast of supporting characters. It seemed to me that all of them were struck down by some undescribed alien virus that made them all extremely vapid, stupid and ignorant.

The mechanics of the writing broke down completely. Sentences ending with prepositions abounded: "...where the shots had been fired from.", "...where Emily had judged the rifle fire had come from.", repetitions also, :"....the last drops from the last jerrican." and just bad writing "... each of them held a weapon in their hand." Oh really? I would have thought perhaps they held their guns in their mouths.

The science in the sci-fi basically disappears (it was not a particularly strong part of the first two novels but didn't matter there). Emily and friends are in contact with the International Space Station but communications are limited to a few minutes "every 12 to 18 hours". But the ISS orbits the earth 15 times a day (or something like that) so communication would be possible every 90 minutes or so. That is something that a little homework would have revealed.

And then there's the big "reveal" about what has happened to Earth. Emily's scientific friend from Alaska informs the British nuclear sub crew with whom they have joined up that the Earth has been terraformed and then has to proceed to explain what that means. To everyone, including the captain of the sub. And everyone is shocked, shocked. Really? What did they think had happened? And there's the voyage to what is presumed to have been an alien ship that crash landed in Las Vegas. Crash-landed? The all-powerful aliens don't know how to land a ship? And when they find the miles long burned out crash site and huge crater what do they do? Why they get closer just in time to see the undamaged space ship that failed to burn up in the atmosphere or become vaporized as it plowed into the earth at who knows how many thousands of kilometers per second dig itself out and start walking around on mechanical legs like one of H.G Wells' Martian machines. And then they all manage to run away from an avalanche. After hiking though several miles of jungle and climbing a few miles of mountains.

I could go on, but there's no point. The ending is banal and as full of plot holes as the rest of this entry, which I think goes down in my book as the single most disappointing finale to a series with a promising start that I can remember. I very rarely give a one-star review, especially after loving the first two entries and going them both 4 star glowing reviews, but this one was bad.

Not recommended.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 An overwhelming sense of meh 28 avril 2014
Par E. Stockwell - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
The first two books of this series were exciting because they were creepy. The aliens/monsters were genuinely scary and the action was intense that kept me reading.

But I knew something was wrong at the end of the second book when Emily gets to the arctic and becomes a petty bitch to fellow survivor Jacob who saved her and Rhiannon's life....by lying. Not even lying, he just didn't tell the whole truth. I had hoped she would get over this, but alas, it was not to be. I mention this specifically because it's indicative of the big problem with the third book. The author seems to have switched from creepy science fiction to character driven drama.

Unfortunately, the main character was never that interesting and is never once corrected on her horrible behavior towards the guy who saved her and in getting her ass in gear, saved the girl AND a submarine full of sailors. This is begrudgingly admitted to later. In fact the author seems to go out of his way to make Jacob into a panicky jerk and it just reeks of trying to make the main character look better.

The other characters are just as bland, right down to the submarine full of red shirts and the one suave guy who is pegged as her love interest. By the time we get to the end, I'm bored, the monsters aren't even really creepy anymore and the "revelation" is too cliched to care anymore. I can't bring myself to hate it, but I didn't like it.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Really? 30 avril 2014

This is how you end it? That's it? The third book in the triology was a huge cop-out. Boring doesn't begin to describe the book. The main character becomes an b*tch and thinks she's boss and expert of everything. No one tells her what to do. Sure come on a dangerous military mission because none of us can stop you... I trust you with my life (said no seasoned military person ever!) I just wanted one of the characters to shoot her in the leg to make her shut-up.

I'm not even going to bother discussing the ending of the book. I think enough reviewers have said all I could say. Waste of money. Don't buy it. If you've read the first two books, make your own ending or ask you child to make up and ending. Trust me my 10 year has a better imagaination than the author.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 I'll try not to spoil with this review 15 avril 2014
Par Tammy Hunsaker - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I've read a few of the negative reactions, in particular those regarding this book's ending. I have to admit reacting in a similar way--I felt disappointed in the actual revelation. Leading up to that, I also wanted more scientific understanding, on the part part of humans, as to what was going on. Didn't it occur to anyone to examine alien tissue under a microscope? It's possible that in the rush to survive, these inquiries might take a back seat. But come on people! Maybe I'm too conditioned by Star Trek, where scientifically plausible explanations combine with an often satisfying solution. I didn't feel that here, but that epilogue and what later could follow might better justify the end of book 3. I'm left with more questions for now. Are we getting the full picture about the aliens? I hope not. I would really, really love to see Emily and others realize that who is responsible for the mass extinction is more similar to flawed humanity than originally supposed.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Disappointing finale 21 avril 2014
Par Rose - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I'm being a bit generous giving three stars because for most of the book I was bored to death.

At the end of the last instalment, Emily, Rhiannon and the dog had made it to Alaska to meet up with Jacob. This one began at this point and shortly thereafter they made contact with a sub. Thanks to some info from their friend in the space station, they knew there was a bit of land at the bottom of California that was free of the red vegetation, so that's where they headed in the sub.

This is the point where it became a vicious cycle of explore, find nothing other than red vegetation, explore some more, again nothing but red, go up in the helicopter, red, red, red. We got it...everything was red. We got that in the last book but you have to fill the pages with something, right?

This brings us to the end. The culmination of everything that has happened and the answers to our questions.

Aliens have decided that we are destroying everything and in several hundred years 98% of all life on the planet would be gone. They stepped in, not to save us, not to save any of the 98%, but to terraform the planet into their own life using existing life on our planet as essentially the food. Was this supposed to be a life lesson? What a load of crap. I can't believe I was looking forward to this one for so long.
