Description

On Aurora, humanity's final outpost is heading for disaster

In 2080, the starship Exodus left Earth, carrying some 1600 people, to give humanity a second chance. Now, in 2245, the colonists are trying to build a future on distant Aurora. But the doomed world that sent them on their long voyage had turned authoritarian and repressive, leading a small group to form a plan to let those sent on the Exodus choose a different path.

While Kenneth Taylor struggles to accept his self-imposed silence even on the new world, Thomas Dunn is slowly subverting the colonial administration. Governor George Havelar, on the other hand, plans to make sure the mistakes of the past are not repeated as he proposes a radical plan for human expansion. In the north a simmering discontent is threatening to break up the unity of the human settlement on Aurora, and former scramjet pilot Tina Hammer realizes she cannot stay out of the conflict. And Maria Solis, torn between loyalty to her father's faction and her own desires, is suddenly being forced into the conflict as she witnesses a terrible crime.

With an entire planet to discover, tensions rise as opposing forces work their plans. While the leadership of the colony tries to affirm its control, others are working to regain lost liberties.

Will humanity’s final outpost survive the confrontation, or succumb to destruction?

    I read it pretty fast. Meaning I couldn't put it down. Highly recommended to sci-fI outer space fans. It does point out some serious flaws in the way our government prioritized issues with society. And how that violence is the only solution.

    This is the second of the Exodus trilogy. It held my attention. The only problem is that there are typos and it's annoying. Not sure why online versions have far more typos than the books on paper. Going back to paper.
  • Too Political

    Just finished the book, after reading the first and loving it. This one fell flat. Yes, the political strife is there, but jot enough if any inter personal stories. No love affairs, no first child born or even conceived. Throughout human history, mankind has found a way. Just not this band of misfits. The author spends every minute making a political statement and forgot that these characters are people. Characters we liked enough after the first book, to buy this one. Well, I do have book three and will read it soon. But I find I'm in no rush, which generally isn't the case with this author. Shame, if I didn't already own it, I wouldn't bother with the next book.

    Great story! Couldn't stop reading, read till my eyes needed to rest so I could see right. I liked "Alive" because I did wonder what happened after impact. Going on to the next book đź‘˝

    So far I've read the first two books of the series and it's awesome! This is a survival story which makes it exciting and mysterious all together. I highly recommend this book if you love mystery/survival stories.

    The saga continues. For Science fiction fans this is a good read, but for the life of me, I can't get my head around using lead projectiles for weapons. As sophisticated as the species are, why doesn't the author inject more technical weaponry?

    A well woven tapestry exploring questions of human origin, human nature, human psychology, relationships, genetics, government, politics, war and our innate drive to survive. Aurora is the second installment in this trilogy by author Andreas Christensen, who I just recently discovered...and I'm glad I did! I thoroughly enjoyed the first installment, "Exodus" and this second installment did not disappoint. Well worth the read. Enjoy!
