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.

The story was fairly entertaining, however it fell very short on the Sci part of Sci-fi.

Awesome sci fi!!

Best Ive heard in years. I dont want to use any spoilers so i will say its engaging, emgrossing, action packed, moving, with loveable characters and unpleasant "baddies". Great entertainment. I loved it!!, 10/10 Thanks Audible.

Absolutely Fabulous

Narrative perfect. I loved this novel and if you love an apocalyptic story with a twist, this is definitely a great listen. 👍

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

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 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.

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.

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.

Great potential

I think there is potential for a great story. Unfortunately the story relies on a few key facts that are absolutely nonsense. The end of the book introduces more unjustified nonsense. I think that grounding the story in something more coherent and the end reworked without the nonsense would have made this book much better

Story is ok, but the science is just terrible

If you're able to ignore the author's complete lack of understanding and interest in basic scientific concepts.
If you're able to disregard the fact that he presents a lot of bad technological ideas, seemingly without having bothered to do any research on the subjects.
If you're able not to take notice of the "science" part of this science fiction story.
...Then you'll find a decent, well-written story hidden behind it all.
The science part is so bad that I had to stop a few times and ask myself whether this author might be taking some weird satirical approach to describing the realities of this story universe.
But no, he's not.

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

Excellent!!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and didn’t have to use a credit. It was well written and fast paced. I dreamt about it, which is always a good sign. I will be downloading the next instalment as I need to know what happens next!!!

I couldn't stop listening to this

I love Sci-fi and having listened to and read all Iain M Banks books, I have been searching for an author that writes incredible sprawling space operas. In my search I came across this book. While it is no space opera, it is one of the best books I've listened to in a long time. The author has a wonderful way with words and creates scenes that you can picture in your head while they are narrated perfectly by Victor Bavine. The characters are interesting and complex and you really begin to care for them. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and had it on every opportunity I could. I am going straight to the next instalment. It is a real gem and it's free with an audible subscription.

Absolutely Brilliant SciFi

Notwithstanding the fact that this first book of a trilogy was free to members does not in any way detract from it's brilliance.
Within no time worth talking about I was totally absorbed by the story and the narrator was do very easy on the ears.
Before I commence Book 2 I'd like to ask Paul Tassi to write more books like this - great listening.

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.

Disgraceful Sickening Violent Filth

I listen to Audible to help me relax and fall to sleep. I was so looking forward to listening to an apparently well regarded trilogy. Sadly, I couldn't even get to the end of chapter six of the first book before this utter filth had to be binned.

Misunderstandings drives the story

The characters are wholly unlikable and swings wildly when it comes to morale and good/evil.

Quite good

Surprisingly good. Some inaccuracy as the story contradicts in a few details, but overall not that important. It will bother you if you are really fussy SF geek. Characters developing nicely, it catches your interest from the first line. Listening to the second one already. The narrator did an awesome job. Considering it is free, it is a gem.
