LoveReading View on The Extinction Trials: Exile

In a Nutshell: Dystopian dangers, deadly dinosaurs = Jurassic Park meets The Hunger Games

Pounding hot on the clawed heels of its primeval predecessor, this second installment of the rip-roaring The Extinction Trials sequence sees Lincoln and Stormchaser face another deadly mission to save humankind from destruction at the hands of three killer species. Since they managed to survive the first grueling trial on Piloria, who better to return to test out a new virus that could allow humans to resettle there? The action is every bit as satisfyingly high-stakes as book one, with the introduction of new characters and further family revelations providing extra intrigue. Oh, and there are NEW DINOSAURS too!

What a killer concept this series is, and executed with all the in-your-face action and crash, bang wallop “what if?” dilemmas fans of fast-paced, fiercely-written fiction could wish for.

The Extinction Trials: Exile Synopsis

After surviving on Piloria once, Storm and Lincoln are the obvious candidates to return to the dinosaur continent to test the new virus that should clear the way for human settlement. But they have their own priorities - finding a cure for the plague that's sweeping Earthasia, and keeping themselves alive. 

The Extinction Trials: Exile Reader Reviews

Some of our Lovereading4kids Reader Review panel were lucky enough to read the first in this series, The Extinction Trials. Here's what they thought;

Khadijah Ahmed, age 20 - 'An interesting twist to the typical Dystopian read. Dinosaurs, anyone? #extinctiontrials'

Humaira Kauser, age 19 - 'It was gripping and I was rooting for Stormchaser the whole way. Maybe I will like this book; I'll have to read more to find out'.

Edel Waugh - 'Those in authority are seeking Volunteers to go on a mission to collect dinosaur eggs so life on the the planet can be saved , this is a dangerous journey with no guarantees of making it back alive , but the alternative is almost equally as hazardous . Stormchaser is just the person for the job!'

Jenny Bridgeman, age 12 - 'This is a sample chapter but I am so excited about what happens next! It sounds really good,it's a bit like ‘Hunger Games’/ ‘Maze Runner’ crossed with ‘Jurassic Park’ and I think it will be very action packed.'

Izzy Read, age 17 - 'Dino’s plus overpopulation equals a whirlwind tale of tension and adventure.' @izzysaround    

Dani, age 26 - 'After reading a chapter in Usborne's 2018 sampler, I have so many questions. The scientist inside my head is curious about the coexistence of humans and dinosaurs. This chapter hints at incredible characters and plenty of morally ambiguous action.'

Jasmine Sillence,  Y7 -  Thorp Academy - ‘The Extinction Trials’ is a dystopian novel where dinosaurs are still alive and people are out to kill them. It is interesting and is different to anything I have ever read before so I am quite intrigued to find out what happens in the book and see what happens to the dragons and who the 100 people who get through the trials are.'
