Overview

Exodus (The Exodus Trilogy, #1) by Andreas Christensen

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.

Exodus 4.1 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 79 reviews.

After reading all the 4 star reviews and being a lover of a syfy and disaster novels, I thought this would be the book for me. Wrong. This was unbelievable on so many levels. The characters are underdeveloped and there are too many to keep track of. The writing style is so simplistic I thought it might be for middle age readers until out of the blue there was one and only one f#&@ word. The basic plot is Earth is to be completely destroyed by a rogue planet that first blasts through Mars, then settles into an orbit around the Sun, then begins to head straight toward Earth. 1600 people are chosen based on their support of the President's political platform and skills to survive and populate another planet. This will take 165 years using a spaceship, cryogenic sleep, and an energy source all of which had to be invented in a few years. Like I said...this entire book makes no sense. I actually fell asleep while reading, something I never do. I do applaud the efforts of all indie writers, but I feel the other reviews were those of friends or family. All the ideas for an amazing story were there...but sometimes less is more. Jp

Great read! I am generally sceptical of short books, they usually seem rushed, unfinished or under developed. I was completely proved wrong and wonderfully surprised by this author. The story line, pace, and character development are perfect! Read it! B & N needs to get the rest of the trilogy. It is irritating to have to swap back and forth between readers. Kindle has them.

This book is so relevant to the politics of today-- the start of what was happening in 2072 was mentioned to have started 50 years prior-- look at what is happening today with terrorism and goverment intervetion and disregard for the constitution of the united states of america! WAKE UP AMERICA!

Except for the political aspects, which are right out of Spanish headlines, this book is totally unbelievable. I had enough when we got to shuttle boosters that recharge from the atmosphere. And all this advance technology for interstellar travel developed in eight years by a country that had no space program for decades. It would have been more believable that they would have diverted the asteroid. I won't be continuing this series.

very good read

It seems that most apocalyptic/post apocalyptic books generally follow the same pattern with similar ideas and characters dominating the story. This is certainly not along those same lines, and I found that incredibly refreshing! Definitely pick this book up for a story that you haven't already read a dozen times, characters with intriguing motivations, and a theme of hope rather than just pure survival.

A good premise. Life should be so ready. Nice science fiction aspects. A little to much convenient coincidence.

I loved this book, it was gripping , fast paced and well thought out. I am looking forward to the next two books in this trilogy. Andreas is a writer I have added to my must read list. Paul Campbellll

A good classic sci-fi novel with a modern political sense - cannot wait for 2&3 to be e-released

Good plot, great science, weak character development.

A very enjoyable read, hate politics in general but these ideas & scenarios seem plausible. With enough resources, getting space travel & cryo technology up to speed is also plausible. Compare it to getting a man on the moon in just 10 years!

A great start, with so many opportunities and directions, I'm anxious to read book two, "Aurora"! From the realistic science and political intrigue to the character interaction and thrill of the unknown, it has my head spinning, needing to know what happens from here... in real time! ; ) Great book! - TM, Maryland.

Well written and an interesting story. I would like to know if anyone on Earth survived! I am looking forward to reading Aurora.

This book moved way too fast to be such a short story...a good bit of 'detail' was missing from the story line but character introduction and development has left me wanting more! Good show Mr. Christensen

There is a sketch of a disasterthat requires an exodus from earth and some kind of conspiracy ongoing bjt so little information is given to the reader you have no idea what is going on. The rest is just boring narrative.

The down spiral to a repressive political structure should be a wake up call to watchfulness. The overall premise of preserving the human race and hopefully forming a more open society is well presented.

Exodus was a pretty good story that has a few interesting characters. The story is simple and the author doesn't try to overwhelm his readers with a bunch of techno babble. David Weber fans probably won't enjoy it that much, but thanks to its relatively short length, you don't feel like you have to know how every widget is developed and how the work. I'm looking forward to reading book two to see how both the political, and colonial challenges play out.

For a free book this was excellent so I will buy the next in the series. I liked the science fiction and the characters and expect they will develop more as series goes on. The politics felt like today...scary.
