Book #45–Extinction

Kyle Rigg spends time preparing and building, with the idea that he’ll lead them into space.

The book is really the marines adventure in invading another world, one with giant sentient worms that live underground, in a way that prevents the Macro forces from easily dislodging them. The book follows Rigg’s marines as they battle on a foreign planet, perhaps to Extinction.

An exciting book, one that keeps you entranced with the tale, and also has me worried about poorly equipped humans might be if aliens arrived. Especially as we don’t do enough basic science and research into space.

The book ends with another thrill, leaving you wanting book 3 as soon as you finish.
