In a lonely valley, deep in the mountains, a ranger watches over the last surviving grizzly bear.

With the natural world exhausted and in tatters, Ben has dedicated himself to protecting this single fragment of the wild.

One night, he hears voices in the valley - poachers, come to hunt his bear.

A heart-pounding chase begins, crossing forests and mountainsides, passing centuries of human ruins. Sometimes hunter, sometimes prey - Ben must choose the bear's fate and his own.

Is he willing to lay down his life for a dying breed?

Is he willing to kill for it?

MEDIA REVIEWS

'[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'
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...Readers will be impressed''
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
