Publisher's Summary

The Earth lies in ruins in the aftermath of an extraterrestrial invasion, the land devastated by a desperate war with no winners between mankind and a race of vicious, intelligent creatures. The seas are drying up while the atmosphere corrodes and slowly cooks any life remaining on the now desolate rock. Food is scarce, trust even more so, and the only people left alive all have done horrific things to stay that way.

Among the few survivors is Lucas, an ordinary man hardened by the last few years after the world's end. He's fought off bandits, murderers, and stranded creatures on his long trek across the country in search of his family, the one thing that drives him to outlive his dying planet. What he finds instead is hope, something thought to be lost in the world. There's a ship buried in a crater wall. One of theirs. One that works. To fly it, Lucas must join forces with a traitorous alien scientist and a captured, merciless raider named Asha. But unless they find common ground, all will die, stranded on a ruined Earth.

Combining gritty post-apocalyptic survival and epic space opera, The Last Exodus is the beginning of a new action-packed science fiction adventure where the future of the human race depends on its survivors leaving the past behind.

I was lucky to discover this book

Excellent story and good narrator. I didn't expect much from this book, but found myself entrapped in the story after giving it a chance. I'll be reading the rest of the series and I hope that the author (Paul Tassi) will continue writing more books.

Great book!

Enjoyed every minute of it. I can't wait for the next one to come out.

After "reading" several duds in a row it was refreshing to stumble upon a new author who actually had a ORIGINAL story on the end of the world.

Almost a 5

Would you listen to The Last Exodus again? Why?

This book would be just as good without the vulgar and offensive expletives. Other than that it is captivating and well read/performed.

Fantastic Sci-fi journey

One of the best books I’ve listened to on audible. Great narrator and the imperfect heroes felt like real people. Great option for fans of Scalzi. Can’t wait for the second one.

Glad to listen to a great story and storytelling

I've long since gotten away from the intricacies of literature, but to put it plainly this is one of the best damn stories I've had the pleasure of experiencing in a long while. Mr. Tassi, keep up the great work, and I can't wait to listen to the next two episodes in this trilogy.

Neither Excellent, or Terrible

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The human condition hasn't really changed and I wanted to see some change, or some new understanding. A good read, but I just wanted more.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Endings are endings; it worked overall and I didn't feel cheated. Good writers like this do deliver in the end, that is the difference between a novice writer and one who knows what they are doing.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

Narration is hard work. Yes, better tone and consistency with voice would have helped a little but the material they were working with did have some limitations

Any additional comments?

Good book, though set in a place that could have been better in my mind. But, I have read thousands of books, so many would get more enjoyment here than I did. I need to be honest there.

Great story, so-so writer

The story had the potential for greatness. The plot advancement and the way characters solve problems is juvenile at points.

Acceptable

Competently written, with no glaring plot errors. A bit predictable perhaps, but not overly so. Fun action scenes, very much a swashbuckling space opera. The author let the story express some views on human nature and belief that I do not share, but the tone was never lecturing or preaching, something I found immensely relieving.

Very engaging even with the gory parts

This is it a definite cliffhanger and I can't wait to see what happens in book 2

Fully engaged from the start

I wasn't sure that I'd like this book not being a fan of post apocalypse stories because they are generally too depressing. This was different. It had great characters who had to overcome the impossible to survive. Great writing which for me means an author who can paint a picture in my head. Thank you.
