Publisher's Summary

Humanity's worst nightmare has again come out of the Dark. Can a human race in turmoil survive?
When the human race faces extermination at the hands of an expanding species the last survivors travel 1,000 years to reestablish the race 10,000 years away. It is now a thousand years after the birth of the New Terran Empire. The race has aggressively expanded during that time, with a fleet that has never lost a war against an alien species. But the signs are there, the old enemy is back, and the Fleet will face its greatest challenge in a foe 50 times their size.
Science fiction in the tradition of Anderson and Weber, where the physics of normal and hyperspace dictate the strategy and tactics. Enormous fleets battle across the immensity of space with advanced technologies. Can the proud human Fleet hold off the tide of an advancing enemy, rallying allies and deploying new tech? Or will the conquerors achieve what they could not 2,000 years before, and end the existence of the upstarts.

Dull & Dreary

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

Difficult to say but it certainly was not for me. I stuck with it to near the end and decided it was total waste to time and a credit. Should have returned it under the superb Audible returns scheme.


What could Doug Dandridge have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Tightened up the plot considerably.


How could the performance have been better?

Monotone voice lacked engagement or excitment.


If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Exodus?

At least 50%.


Any additional comments?

I really don't like giving poor reviews but on this occasion ...

Spot the derivative ideas

Quite enjoyable, and the author is clearly a David Weber fan, using several ideas from both The Honorverse and Safehold series. If you know both series, it's quite entertaining spotting them. I enjoyed it enough to want to know what happens next, though the narrator is fairly dire., particularly his 'women's voices, which are more than a bit on the squeaky side.
