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.

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.

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.

Absolutely Stunning

This was an amazing story, covering numerous sci-fi tropes in an unpredictable arc. Loved it!

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.

Paint by numbers

No real feeling to the book. Characters are matter of fact cut outs announcing who they are and what they are doing. Couldn't make it very far into this

Awesome sci-fi

Great book. With hero killer and now this i'm definitely a paul tassi fan. Narrator was great but i laughed a few times with alpha (you'll probably know why when you listen). This flew by and kept me engaged start to finish. On to book 2

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.

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.
