Book Description

The Earthborn Trilogy: Book One

The Earth lies in ruins in the aftermath of an invasion, the land devastated by an intergalactic war where neither side won. The seas are drying up while the atmosphere corrodes and slowly cooks all remaining life on the now desolate rock.

Few survivors remain, but one of them 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. What he finds instead is hope, something thought 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. Their perilous journey fighting savage men and creatures alike takes them across the remains of the planet and far out into the stars to...where exactly? Lucas has to live long enough to find out.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Sci-fi Adventure I Couldn't Put Down! June 5, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Tassi hooked me after one digital page September 18, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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"

5.0 out of 5 stars Tassi weaves a spectacular tale. October 16, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Story of Survivors September 18, 2012
By DCH1400
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Paul Tassi has written a phenomenal piece of survivalist science fiction in The Last Exodus. The book follows the story of Lucas, Asha, and an alien who have each survived the end of the world and now must use their final efforts to reach into the stars and save their own lives. This story is filled with intense action and incredible characterizations that leave the reader feeling as if they know each of his characters. I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in science fiction. While the scenese of violence are extremely descriptive and colorful, as is the setting of a dying Earth, Paul has not included any unnecessary details. What you read is completely necessary to convey the dark tones in the book.

By Nathan
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Great book! Haven't checked yo see if the next book is available yet. Il be very disappointed if not! The death has been devastated and a renegade alien from the invading force helps a man, woman and baby escape. They travel to a world where a different strain of humans exist hoping for refuge. Highly recommend it.

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.
