Resident Evil: Extinction is the third and final novel in author Keith R. A. DeCandido's series of novelizations based on the Resident Evil films. It is, as its name would imply, a novelization of Resident Evil: Extinction; unusually for novelizations, it was actually released before the film. The book is 353 pages long.
The novel is divided into two parts: Part One: Before and After and Part Two: Fight For Survival.
Before and After details the immediate aftermath of Raccoon City's destruction and the beginning of the worldwide outbreak. Odd-numbered chapters are titled "Before" and are set during the latter half of Resident Evil: Apocalypse and shortly after, whereas even-numbered chapters are titled "After" and take place during, and concurrent to, the beginning of Resident Evil: Extinction.
Part Two: Fight For Survival takes place during and concurrent to the latter half of Extinction.
The novel touches upon the fates of Jill Valentine and Angela Ashford, neither of whom appear in the film. A good portion of the book is dedicated to Jill's exploits as a solitary wanderer traveling the wasteland of America.
