Product Description

Product Description


Separated by 40 million years, man and nature's apex predators are about to cross paths.


Deep in the jungles of Andhra Pradesh, India, hundreds of villagers have been attacked by the most ferocious land predator ever to have lived. At the mercy of a government that cares nothing for them, the body count begins to rise as the villagers cling to the hope that someone, somewhere will have the courage to fight.


Eric Holden learns that his father is killed by an unknown animal in the unexplored heart of India. A mysterious guide appears and offers him the chance for revenge.


Traveling to India to face his father's murderers, Eric leaves behind the life he knew, unsure if he will ever be able to return. Left to nature and the horrors of the jungle, Eric will see that revenge carries a terrible price.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE EXTINCT May 6 2011
By S. Daffron - Published on

What a surprise this book was! I thought it would be another "creature running loose, killing everyone around" story, but it's much more than that. The story line is really good. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It keeps your attention throughout. I didn't want to stop reading once I started it. A really good read.

1.0 out of 5 stars Bad. Very bad. Dec 18 2011

Wow. That was really terrible to read. I don't usually leave reviews, but this might save a few people some time and a lot of frustrations.

As several others pointed out, it was really disjointed and the characters were very dull and predictable. I seriously doubt that there was an editor period and that really bugged me. If you're the type of person who gets irked when there are a ton of obvious errors in books, especially random tense changes and things like that, don't bother. Well, honestly, you probably shouldn't bother anyway, but the lack of editing made it much worse.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not quite a monster story April 22 2011

Well written story, but it turns out to be more about the darkness inside and less about an ancient predator. Most of the story deals with Erics personal problems before he heads to India in the last part of the book. It was a good story but not so much about what I was expeting.

2.0 out of 5 stars Less than pleased Sept. 2 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Dont believe most of the reviews... this story is lacking in character development and there is almost nothing describing the so called man killing monster that is killing just about every one. There is no reason to care about what happens to any of the characters and the book missed on excellent opportunities to add personal conflicts between the main characters.
I kept hoping the book would get better as it went along but was disappointing. Makes me wonder where the rave reviews come from.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too many inconsistencies Feb. 12 2012
By Reader With Standards - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
The good reviews for this book made it seem promising. They lied. First off, why is there a picture of dinosaur skeleton on the cover when teh predator isn't a dinosaur? The character Thomas admits that he knew Eric's mother before she met his father, yet chapters later Eric thinks Thomas is gay before he finds out he had a previous relationship with Sandra, a woman who joins them to hunt down a man-eating creature in spite of no hunting experience. Let's not forget my absolute "favorite" line in the book: "The doe was wounded but was still running faster than te men who'd begun chasing him." Really? A male doe? Does the author really not remember the most basic of song lyrics: "doe a deer, a female deer"?

I finished the book because it was a fast read and I wanted know how it ended, but didn't feel the slightest bit of attachment to any of the characters. It's just better not to start it at all.
