Exodus Summary


Exodus - A high tech space opera set in a dystopian future society where humanity faces its greatest challenge ever.

Exodus is the first installment of the Exodus Trilogy.

When mankind faces extinction, how can anyone survive?

In 2072, Earth faces the ultimate extinction event. In an America turned authoritarian, a race against time begins. To send a starship to a distant planet, where the remains of humanity can survive. Only a small number will be chosen for this final endeavor to save mankind from extinction, and among the contenders only the most resourceful will have a chance.

But while the government wants to choose loyal subjects in order to create another version of the society they have engineered, there are those who secretly conspire to let the starfarers choose their own destiny, free from the bonds of their mother world.

As mankind on Earth faces its final blow, the selected few set course for Aurora, more than 40 light years away!

Follow Tina Hammer, scramjet pilot and officer, Kenneth Taylor, Harvard professor and alienated by the nation he once held so dear, Maria Solis, daughter to one of the richest men in the world, a girl who would never have been chosen, except for her dad's money, on their various paths toward the greatest adventure in human history.

    Even though the exposition was a bit slow, the book has a sort of suspense that keeps you reading. It has a well established story line that makes you curious how it ends. You begin to really like some characters, and I loved how the scientific references/use is mostly correct. It feels like a proper sci-fi.

    Nicely written, great story. Could have included more details and developed characters more fully.
  • Afraid of intimacy

    This author is afraid to get inside a character's head for more than a sentence. We are left watching characters as if through binoculars go through some contrived challenges that are just too remote to be engaging. And the challenges are passed without much excitement. Poor story line and no character development. Not even any good dialogue. I can't recommend this author, she needs to take some writing lessons.
  • Highly recommend!
