'Extinction Point' by Paul Antony Jones is the first book in a series, and it's a pretty good one. I tell you that so you understand that the story does not really stand alone in this volume.
Reporter Emily Baxter is a reporter living in New York. Really early on in the book (so you don't think this is a spoiler), a weird weather phenomenom occurs which bathes the earth in red rain. Emily finds herself unaffected as everyone around her succumbs to the effects of the rain. Emily watches the world around her change rapidly. What begins to happen next proves to Emily that the world no longer belongs to humans. Is she truly alone and what will she do to survive?
It moved along rather quickly and I liked the main character well enough. The book ends with her still on her journey, so I'll definitely read the later books in the series.
I received a review copy of this ebook from Amazon Publishing, 47 North, and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this ebook.
