Publisher's Summary

The Exodus Towers features all the high-octane action and richly imagined characters of The Darwin Elevator - but the stakes have never been higher.
The sudden appearance of a second space elevator in Brazil only deepens the mystery about the aliens who provided it: the Builders. Scavenger crew captain Skyler Luiken and brilliant scientist Dr. Tania Sharma have formed a colony around the new Elevator's base, utilizing mobile towers to protect humans from the Builders' plague. But they are soon under attack from a roving band of plague-immune soldiers. Cut off from the colony, Skyler must wage a one-man war against the new threat as well as murderous subhumans and thugs from Darwin - all while trying to solve the puzzle of the Builders' master plan…before it's too late for the last vestiges of humanity.


What the Critics Say

"Newcomer Hough displays a talent for imaginative plotting and realistic dialogue, and the brisk pacing and cliffhanger ending will keep readers enthralled and eagerly awaiting the next installment." ( Publishers Weekly)
"Hough writes with irresistible energy and gritty realism. His puts his characters through hell, blending a convincing plot with heart-stopping action and moments of raw terror as the world goes crazy in the shadow of unfathomable alien intentions." (Sara Creasy, author of the Philip K. Dick Award–nominated Song of Scarabaeus)

Not quite empire strikes back but a good sequel

What did you like most about The Exodus Towers?

This continues the tone and pace of the Darwen Elevator but expands the canvas beyond Darwen. As the world expands some of the characters become a bit limited but it cracks on at a pace.

If the Darwen Elevator was the surprise hit scifi movie of the summer then this would be the sequel that kept the fans happy.
