Exodus Andreas Christensen Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

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.

    A bit telegraphic, but solid world-building. I look forward to the next one
  • Nice surprise

    By Orlando'sReviews
    When I started reading this book I thought “I’ll give it a try, I’ll decide to drop it or keep on reading in the first few pages” To my surprise (since this is the first time I read this author), I kept on reading straight thru till the end. And now I want to read all the other books by this writer. Good job!!! Thanks for taking the time to write this story and the others I’m about to read.

    I loved Exodus. The theme is predictable and would seem to be a worn out idea, but Andreus’s approach was fresh and engaging. Bravo! A page turner that kept me reading late into the night, even though I know better. Can’t wait to read Aurora!
  • Let’s just leave

    By Ziggyjo113
    I found this story very plausible as the World we know comes down to the end. Scientific discoveries and new technologies right thru to the end. Very easy read with an undercurrent of quietly emergent freedom on the line for the new World but with a possible 1 party hierarchy planned. Will this plan stay?? Or change ??
  • What Sci Fi Should Be

    By CoachCory
    After finding so much to love from writers like David Drake, Erik Flint, Chris Bunch, David Weber and more, it seems as if I’ve had to endure more post apocalyptic, dystopian fantasies than I care to shake a stick at. No where in the morass of second rate writing did I see the richness of character, surprise of plot twist, or imagination brought to life regarding new worlds and the means to get there. In Exodus, Andreas Christiansen has revived my hope that there will be more books, more characters, and more worlds worth reading about. Rather than slogging thru technical details for dozens of pages, or trying to play jr. engineer and solve all the minute problems of the voyage to another world, the author sticks to the best parts - the story line, characters, and the settings that make any book worth reading in the first place.

    By davidbressler
    The writing was childish and choppy. The story was ok but it lacked suspense, the writer lacks nuance.
