Extensis Vitae – Book Review

Extensis Vitae is the first book in a series of four written by Gregory Mattix. For a first time writer/book, this is quite a gem!

“Michael Reznik is a soldier who wakes up in a mysterious underground bunker, with a technologically advanced body he doesn’t recognize. The people around him have cast aside fighting and warfare. They haven’t needed them — until now.

Reznik is charged with tracking down a band of ruthless killers and finding a kidnapped doctor. He finds himself honor-bound to do what is right for the people who brought him back from the dead. A peaceful people are depending on him to do what is right. Can he live up to their expectations, even when he finds out that his new body has an expiration date?”

Extensis Vitae is a gritty, post-apocalyptic science fiction adventure.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, and will be purchasing the full series in the very near future! A book that was hard to put down, with gory fight scenes (with a bit of Mad Max and Terminator thrown in) and a storyline that grabbed you from the start – and continued to develop along the way.
The story flowed quite well, even with flashbacks thrown in, which helped to fill in any gaps along the way. From start to finish, this was a great read – gritty, tough, without overdoing it in any area. Even the use of weaponry was realistic – with weapons not working if they hadn’t been maintained properly.
For fans of Fallout, you may find this series to your liking! I’m really looking forward to reading the other three books in the series and seeing where Mattix goes with this story – I’m already hooked!

You can pick up a free copy of the first book for your kindle here – paperback versions are available through Amazon.com
