AUTHOR: Douglas Preston

TW/CW: Death, murder, brutality, violence, language

RATING: ⭐️⭐️⭐️ 1/2

REVIEW: I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley and Tor Publishing Group and am voluntarily leaving an honest review.

Extinction is a mystery novel that takes place after the murder of two hikers in a Jurassic Park-like refuge that has brought wooly mammoths and other large mammals back to life.

This is a fast-moving and entertaining novel, and I enjoyed reading it. It’s a unique story, and although I figured it out well before the end, it was still interesting to read.

My biggest problem with this book is the almost complete lack of character development. While the story was interesting, I sadly did not find the characters to be so at all. They simply were not 3D characters, and the lack of development made the characters difficult to tell apart.

This book would probably appeal more to people who enjoy mysteries more than I do. While having its faults, this is still an enjoyable book.

Love the series. But, please, loose the sound effects on future audio books. Can not wait for the next installment of the series
