Humanity thought they had escaped the terrors of the Ca'cadasans by moving ten thousand light years away. Now, two thousand years later it is a fight to the finish, and only one race will leave this battle of extermination.
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 a thousand years to reestablish the race ten thousands light 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 fifty 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 two thousand years before, and end the existence of the upstarts.
Great military sci fi space opera
I found the book rich with characters and space opera on a grand scale. .
The book is a bit complex at times, but I really enjoyed the experience.
Exodus is the first Doug Dandridge book I have read, and in hindsight it may have been better to start with The Deep Dark Well.
Looking forward to the future volumes!
Good Scene Setting Opening Book for a Series
Thought this was a well written 1st chapter in a series that set the scene for the entire series. Good intrigue and character development. Good action scenes. Look for to the next book in the series. Style reminds me a good bit of Weber.
Very Good Book
I picked this book up on a whim. An I'm so glad I did. The story is very well written. And just sucked me right in. I had a hard time putting it down. Because I just needs to know what happend on the next page. I would highly recommend this book.
