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 Review

    By Scotty Jay
    I found this story as created to be very compelling. I love how the science of problem solving was ingenuously incorporated making this story seem plausible . I look forward to reading the second book in the trilogy. Great job :)

    Exodus grabbed my attention, and wouldn't let go. I sincerely hope that it is made into a television miniseries. A two hour movie would not do it justice. My thanks to the author for creating this "mental movie" of a disaster that brings about the end of a corrupt, authoritarian government and system on earth - much like we now have the beginnings of in reality in the United States after the election of 2016 - and gives the human species a chance at a new beginning.
  • Page turner

    Very easy to read page turner that kept me interested the whole way through. I wouldn't call it literature but it is entertaining and intelligent. Also realistic for a dystopian America. In 2017 We are all too close to fascist tyranny so it is easy to imagine. Read it.
  • Loved this Sci-fi. Can't wait to get the next in the series

    I liked it. I am still not used to reading books electronically, but it didn't interfere with my enjoyment of the story. I am looking forward to Book 2 - Aurora.
  • Read this book!

    With a topic geared towards the end of the world as we know it, there is a lot of room for descriptions of unspeakable violence. However, that is not the case in this book. The horrors are acknowledged but not described in gory detail. I felt the heartache, the struggle for survival and the unknown that the characters were experiencing. Christensen handles the the story with care, compassion and an overwhelming feeling of hope. Hope for good triumphing over evil, hope for a future. The book ends with a glimpse into the challenges that the characters will face, but it is not a cliffhanger. I felt my time and emotions invested in the book were well worth it and and I can't wait to purchase and read more in the series.
