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 th

I don’t read much Science-Fiction, but:

"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."

How could I not check it out, right?

Things kick of with a grim view of future Earth. Out of nowhere, aliens appeared (Independence Day) and all but destroyed our beloved planet. Our cities, our culture, our people – there’s very little left (The Walking Dead). The few hum
I'm waffling between 2 and 3 stars for this. I didn't hate it but it does have serious issues.

On the one hand the basic idea is interesting: Earth was invaded by aliens and fought them off, but in the process the planet was ruined. At first it seems like the reason for the invasion is a lame cliche of the aliens wanting our water, but it turns out that's a secondary goal. (view spoiler)

Went into it thinking it was going to be hard science fiction. It definitely isn't that but it was a very good space opera. The story was well paced and the characters had enough flaws to make them believable in the setting.

So when I was mailed The Last Exodus by Paul Tassi, first book in the Earthborn Trilogy, I was intrigued by the story description enough on the back of the book to give

It ended!

Battle scenes well described and not gory. Scientist had many ideas and fierce knowledge to use for good. I would recommend this to anyone who is interested in a new tale, space, other species or are they?

Fun, easy reading sci-fi adventure. A likable alien, a likable hero and a so-so not so likable heroine.
This fast paced story keeps you entertained. Some story bits are too far fetched even as a sci-fi but it is amusing.
A note to male authors everywhere. Why is it that the last female human alive is always a former model? And of course the hero is the last male human alive. Really! The hero gives no description of his physical looks but the female is always perfect in looks even at the end of th

Sci-fi Fantasy. One of the better space operas out there. Light on the science and what of it is discussed the author has got it wrong. Aliens come to earth to get resources and what they want is water. Made out of two of the three most common elements in the universe and some how it's a scarce resource. "Transmuted water" what? And some element earthlings haven't discovered yet used as fuel, when combined with water. Anyway good novel if you ignore the small bits, somewhat similar to space ...more

LOVED this book. Great straightforward science fiction story with human element to it. Not all about machines/technology, but about survival, humanity, and loyalty. An easy read, well worth checking out.

I enjoyed this first book in the trilogy. I haven't read the rest yet, and I usually like to reserve judement until I've read the whole thing just in case it doesn't come together well. But since my local library doesn't seem to carry the rest, it might be a while.

Good old space opera

From diaspora earth, to battles on Alien planets , to battles in space! What more could one ask for? This is only the beginning sci-fi junkies. Let "Dr" rip Paul!

I enjoyed The Last Exodus so much that I read it twice. This is not my usual reading practice, but before returning it to the public library, I wanted to savor it again.

Read this book if you enjoy science fiction!

The first book in this series was excellent, and the others were good. I think I lost some of the excitement in the process of reading all three books back to back

A pretty good book. I didn't always like Asha one of the main characters, but it wasn't such a bad book.

Excellent book from start to finish. Hooks you in with the end of mankind and goes in a fun direction. Three great main characters. Can't wait to read book 2.
This is a fairly emotional book with strong protagonists but weak villains. I like the mood and tone this book sets, painting a bleak picture on Earth and beyond.

Entertaining well written book. Credit to the author for providing some clever plot twists that were not entirely expected in a post apocalyptic space opera. An enjoyable read

Excellent shot out of the gate by first time writer Paul Tassi. Hoping to see a sequel relatively soon.
