Review

"What would happen if you threw Independence Day, The Walking Dead, and Guardians of the Galaxy into a blender? I can’t say for sure, but it’d probably look something like The Last Exodus. Tassi’s book is a clear, clever and action-packed romp that will undoubtedly appeal to sci-fi veterans and novices alike." —Blake Harris, author of Console Wars

"Readers of Paul Tassi's The Last Exodus should get strapped in for a thrilling ride—this guy can really tell a tale!" —Michael Cobley, author of the Humanity's Fire trilogy

About the Author

Paul Tassi decided after years of consuming science fiction through a steady diet of books, movies, TV shows, and video games to try writing his own stories in the genre. He didn't imagine he'd ever actually finish a single book, but now that he's started writing, he doesn't want to stop. Paul writes for Forbes, and his work has also appeared on IGN, the Daily Dot, Unreality, TVOvermind, and more. He lives with his beautiful and supportive wife in New York City.

More About the Author

After years of consuming science fiction through a steady diet of books, movies, TV shows, and video games, Paul Tassi eventually decided to try writing his own stories in the genre. He didn't imagine he'd ever actually finish a single book, but now that he's started writing, he doesn't want to stop.

So far, Paul has completed the first two books of his series, The Earthborn Trilogy. His first book, The Last Exodus, was released in 2012, while his second book, The Exiled Earthborn, came out in 2013. Readers can expect the final installment of the Exodus Trilogy sometime in 2014 before he moves on to pursue the other ideas floating around in his head.

Paul lives in New York with his beautiful and supportive wife. He writes for Forbes and his work also appears on IGN, The Daily Dot, Unreality Magazine, TVOvermind and more. It's a slow day if he's written less than 10,000 words.

Having someone, anyone read his stories has been an incredible experience, and Paul is extremely grateful for all the support he's received regarding his work so far.

Apocalypse stories are all the rage lately, with films, shows, and books like World War Z, "Walking Dead," and "Falling Skies" as variations on the theme of humanity struggling to survive in the face of a worldwide cataclysm. Paul Tassi's The Last Exodus mines familiar ground--a world devastated by alien attack, with most of the population wiped out--and does something unexpected by avoiding all the usual tropes.

Most of the time, the "end of the world" in fiction is figurative, but here it's literal. Earth is a dying piece of rock. Groups working together are the exception, rather than the rule. In a story that begins with no hope for the human race, it goes to AMAZING places. I literally could not put it down.

The Last Exodus is a classic sci-fi adventure with modern sensibilities. The characters are fully-realized people and fascinating to follow around, scarred by living through the end of the world but still so very human(except Alpha, who isn't human but fast became my favorite character through his mix of pragmatism and dry wit). The story itself, involving a group of unlikely allies with a plan to escape the dying planet, moved briskly and unpredictably.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves sci-fi, but tends to avoid sci-fi novels. It never overstays its welcome or gets bogged down in technobabble, moving from scene to scene like the best films of its genre. You will not be disappointed!

I have been reading Sci-Fi since I was 12 years old in 1966. These 2 novels (with a 3rd on the way to complete the trilogy) are some of the best I have read in 48 years of Sci-Fi. @PaulTassi is a wonderful story teller as I have laid down over 300 Sci-Fi novels in that time because I grew up reading Heinlein, Asimov, Bradbury, Clarke, Meredith, and many other early masters of the genre that just grabbed you in the 1st 5 pages. Read these wonderful stories. You will not be bored or regret the reads. Can't wait for 'Sons of Sora' the trilogy finale!

I enjoy a good sci-fi book and this one got me after page 1. I'm a sucker for survival stories and Tassi doesn't waste time getting into the story. A man in a destroyed world finds a way reason to live after almost taking his life. I'm still reading the book but I like where its going. Nice job Paul on your first book!
Paul Tassi writes articles on video games, the internet, Tech and TV for Forbes. I have been following him on twitter @paultassi after reading an article on he wrote after the SOPA/PIPA issue earlier this year. Its a great article if you are interested its called "You Will Never Kill Piracy, and Piracy Will Never Kill You"

This first entry into a new trilogy leaves me hungry for more. Well written, engaging, with nuanced characters you can relate to, time permitting I'd have read it in one sitting. I eagerly await number two!

Very well written. Kept me wanting to keep reading and not put the book down, and I'm not an easy person to please with books. If you like sci-fi thrillers i would recommend you give this one a try.

This sci fi epic is one of the most thrilling rides I've ever been on the pacing the story the characters you grow to love and cheer for everything is so well crafted and flows so well that I felt like although I was reading a book. I could see the places mentioned the characters expressions the reality of their situations it's so rare a book captures you like a full length feature film I could not put this book down from start to finish this book will hook you and never let go what a ride. I recommend this book to any fan of sci fiction or post apocalyptic novels.

At first, I didn't know what to expect. I'd followed Tassi on Unreality and his occasional Forbes article. But reading this book, I really couldn't put it down. The characters are vibrant and the atmosphere is as I would expect in a post apocalyptic world; Survival of the Fittest trumps cooperation most of the time. I highly recommend picking up this title, and I cannot wait to see what happens next.
