Editorial Reviews

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

"A well-grounded, grim tale of first contact . . . Debut novelist Tassi gifts his characters with solid motivations and understandable responses to the postapocalyptic setting." —Publishers Weekly

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 Chicago.

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've read quite a few apocalyptic novels. Most are set in a world decimated by nuclear war, ravaged by disease, or struggling to survive when all of the modern conveniences they've come to rely on are rendered useless by EMPs. The Last Exodus has elements of these as well, but they are caused by alien invaders that leave behind a dying planet. While violence is an integral part of war and those who remain are willing to do whatever necessary to survive one more day, it was refreshing that the story could be told without cursing and vulgarity on every page. The action is nonstop and the storyline is creative and fresh...well done, Paul!!

We have all wondered what an intergalactic war would be like, how we might defend ourselves, what would the aftermath be like. The author brings us such a story of war, survival, the aftermath, the survivors and their stories. We also get to see contact with aliens and an intergalactic fight for survival. I'm trying to write a review without spoilers, which is very hard to do. This book is well worth the read. Self-published with very few errors, a major achievement. Great story, good character development. I would have preferred to know the story behind the gun's name much earlier in the book. It came across as an adolescent tendency until the story on it was finally told. **Recommended**

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.

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.

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!

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"

I don't want to give out any major spoilers for those who haven't read, but you can probably surmise. So fair warning, possible spoiler.

I feel like this would have been a lot better if the author had either left the "youngest" character out, or spent some more time developing that. Particularly how it impacts the other characters and bonds them. It felt more like a band-aid to try and bond two of the characters and should have been more impactful. I think it also would have helped with some empathy from the alien. The youngest character was introduced, an event took place, and then forgotten. I felt the youngest character was a major event and should have changed the dynamics of the group. Literally, that character would take up 100% of their time, at least one of them, and create a lot of tension and frustration at times. I can summarize by saying, it's not a new puppy, you can't just let it outside and ignore it. I know I'm completely dwelling on this one specific issue, but it basically ruined the book for me.
