Synopsis

Accolades for Exodus:

"Wow! I was truly impressed by this book. I love when science fiction writers combine science, politics and psychology. For me the mix was just right"

 "This book is science fiction in great form. It doesn't just make you think about the future, it really makes you think about the world around you today"


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 race through the end of the Earth - excellent SF"

"Very well written and reads fast and easy in the style of other great sci fi writers such as Randolph Lalonde and Jack Campbell"
