About the Author

Bradley Somer holds degrees in archaeology and anthropology. He is the author of Imperfections and Fishbowl, which was published in over fifteen countries and in several language translations.


A beautiful tale of hope in the face of hopelessness, Extinction is a haunting nightmare of the future, and a lyrical love song to nature.

-- "Tim Lebbon, New York Times bestselling author of Eden, The Silence, and The Last Storm"

With Extinction Bradley Somer presents an unflinching view of the dangers mankind poses to the natural world, and yet he wraps these horrors in gorgeous and nuanced language. Highly recommended!

-- "Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of Kagen the Damned and Relentless"

I began Extinction with the sense that it would take a brilliant writer to pull off such an ambitious story. By the time I finished, it was clear that Bradley Somer not only delivered on his promise, but achieved something even more unexpected. From the very first page, he pulls us into a novel landscape residing somewhere between a Jack London wilderness and a Cormac McCarthy lawless dystopia. Then he ignites a fire of suspense that burns until the very last page.

-- "Scott Stambach, award-winning author of The Invisible Life of Ivan Isaenko"

[A] tale of wilderness survival and pursuit, told in lean, propulsive prose, but with a twist...Somer raises disquieting questions about our relationship with nature, and the debt we owe to the beings with whom we share our planet--even, or perhaps especially, when there is no longer any chance of restitution.

-- "The Guardian"

In vibrant, lyrical prose, Somer depicts Ben's struggles with loneliness and the approaching winter...His hardships are keenly felt due to Somer's masterful characterization...A resurgence of the literary, introspective element brings Ben's story to a poignant close. Readers will be impressed by Somer's prose.

-- "Publishers Weekly"

Harrowingly tense and cerebral, Somer's Extinction is a primordial game of cat-and-mouse-and-cat, which confronts the costs of survival while boldly redefining what it truly means to survive. Bravo!

-- "P. J. Vernon, author of Bath Haus and When You Find Me"

We are all being asked to make choices. Our species, our animals, our world...Somer hones these questions down to the knife-edge of a lonely man and the last surviving grizzly bear, in the ragged grandeur of the remaining West. An unforgettable story, a fierce and thrilling ride.

-- "Maxim Loskutoff, author of Ruthie Fear and Come West and See"

A heart-pounding thriller built out of a ranger's mission to protect his territory's last surviving bear against oncoming threats. Somer's writing is visceral and immediate, and he brings the natural world into focus in fascinating ways.
