Description

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.

    Really liked this book. Who knows, one day we may have to go thru this. Because some of the scientists jargon means nothing to me it still told me how much knowledge the author has so it was easier to follow. Will read all the series!
  • Loved it!

    Exodus drew me in and wouldn’t let go. Great premise and world building coupled with enjoyable character development. I highly recommend Exodus by Andreas Christensen.

    This book was extremely well-written and created situations that we may truly face one day. The comments on the slide into totalitarianism probably bother some reviewers because we ar watching that very thing occur here in the US. Uncomfortable!
  • Good but.

    Good reading but too close to reality in terms of single party rule.
  • Cool premise

    Good bang for your buck here, particularly since it’s free. Very cool near-future sci-fi premise. Definitely worth the read, so much so that I immediately bought part 2 upon completing this and am looking forward to seeing where it goes.
  • Dry

    Little on the dry side but shows potential and makes me want to read more, but for $4 I’m not going to just now.
