Extinction Point by Jones, Paul Antony

Twelve hours after the red rain falls, people begin to fall ill and die. The world watches in horror as, city after city goes dark and death counts rise. The death's are bloody, violent and fast. Red rain falls on, New York city and one reporter is left behind. She appears to be the lone survivor.

Sounds, intriguing, right? It is --- that is, until it all falls apart. The character development is poor, the storyline drags and then everything becomes predictable and awkward. The best part of the book, is the dog.

The ending is abrupt, but it's safe to say that is a result of the writers need to leave us hanging in an attempt to pick up the next book in the series.  I have no immediate intention to read the second book, "Exodus" but in case you do -- it's already out and ready for you to read.

Grade: D
