"The writing engages with unbridled imagination, and tells an exciting story that lends itself well to the futuristic science fiction genre. The crosscutting of scenes and the scenes themselves are cinematic in nature, and so this book would lend itself quite well to being filmed commercially. The cast of characters are, individually and collectively, certainly strong enough to command center stage throughout the novel, and will successfully hold the reader's interest in wanting to know what will happen next.

"I read In the Days of Humans: Third Exodus by Terry R Hill. This is an old fashioned science fiction novel. ...This novel is for readers who like to ponder science and philosophy; ... I found the novel worthwhile." - Piers Anthony (fantasy/sci-fi author)
About the Author
Terry R. Hill, a Texas native, was trained with two degrees in aerospace engineering. He has worked for NASA since 1997 with a very satisfying career as an engineer and project manager spanning programs from the international space station's navigation software, to next generation space suit design, to exploration mission planning, to mitigating the health effects of space on astronauts. While supporting the manned space program has been a lifetime passion, writing of different worlds, alternate futures and the human condition has filled his spare time.

All is not smooth sailing in this monumental endeavor to save humans from a dying Earth. Power, greed, and unbridled ambition casts a shadow over the evacuation efforts. Adamini is forced to undermine an agenda set in place by superiors he cannot trust, but he must do so with utmost secrecy and deception. He receives assistance in his efforts from an alien artificial intelligence. While Adamini understands the mentality of his human enemies and takes measures accordingly to thwart their plans for the Martian colony, the AI's intentions remain a mystery to him.
The author does a seamless job of imagining a manned journey to Mars and its eventual colonization. His background in NASA confers an authentic feel on the narrative, infusing his description of space tech with an engineer's eye. Add to the hard science element his skillful use of science fiction's popular tropes: the sentient AI and FTL travel, and what you have is a well rounded adventure with interesting, well developed characters. Third Exodus envisions a desperate migration from a world that can no longer sustain life. Hopefully, a real world exodus will not be saddled with that level of urgency. ”
I read this book as a favor to my Aunt. While science fiction is not my usual genre of reading, I have to say; In the Days of Humans (Third Exodus) had me reading well into the night. The characters capture you so completely that you have no choice but to continue reading. If you enjoy apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic fiction then this is the perfect book for you.
Thanks for adding the “sign posts” to the story Mr. Hill, they were a nice touch.
You've earned a true fan, Mr. Hill!
Author Terry R. Hill’s story opens up from that point rebuilding humanity over time under the path of it’s former existence only to be faced with a greater threat than that of just organic deadly beast waiting to kill humans. And, so the plight of humanity’s latest problem ages in a new direction in which humanity seeks to follow for the very future of life’s survival.
In doing so Mr. T. R. Hill as the Author of this novel has built in his own style a method for taking you across times shifts between each location setting up a different scene for new events as they unfold. Just where each new happening ventures to is something I leave for you as the reader to discover.
I will say this however, were we to, should we attempt to, or could we do this as humans endeavouring to walk down the path Mr. T. R. Hill has presented in this story would mark an unexpected darken chapter in human history most would never have believe even possible. That is should anyone or thing actually be left alive.

I'd love to read a sequel and I liked how he didn't dummy any of the content down.
