About Ike Hamill

Ike Hamill writes fast-paced horror novels with strong, relatable characters. His books have gained a steady following amongst readers who enjoy his blend of sci-fi, paranormal, occult, and suspense. Whether focused on a small family trying to survive the move to a haunted house, or following a band of angry rebels determined to withstand an apocalypse, his stories draw the reader into the lives of real people in crisis.

Review for Extinct by Ike Hamill:

7/10—average—No matter how lost our cause, humans never quit fighting. Brad and Robby join together with a group of other survivors after an extinction event centered in Maine.

The characters were interesting and realistic enough to hold my attention, and the plot likewise moved quickly enough to keep my interest.

I liked the story but felt the author had “too many balls in the air.” He wasn’t able to catch them all before the story ran out. (Hence the sequel.) The plant, the snowstorm, the deaths, the disappearances, the elementals, and the ball of light were linked by correlation without logical necessity (despite Robby’s explanation, which we’re supposed to accept since Robby’s uber-smart) or obvious causal relationships. Some of the episodic events felt more like separate (but enjoyable) short stories than an integral part of the whole.

Overall, the story was worth my time, and I’d recommend this for someone who wants a light horror novel.
