This is the complete omnibus edition of the Exodus Trilogy, which has captivated readers all over the world. When an object from space threatens, it becomes clear that humanity needs to reach for the stars in order to survive. With just a few years warning, a race against time begins; to send a starship to a distant planet, where the remains of humanity can survive. Only a small number will be chosen, and among the contenders no one but the most resourceful will stand a chance. In an America turned authoritarian, a small group of dissidents draw up their plans to change not this world, but the next. The confrontation seems inevitable, but who will prevail, and at what cost? A world divided make their separate plans. In desperate times, humanity will show it's darker side, and even the best of intentions can result in the worst of outcomes. Will human ability for compassion and unity rise up, or succumb to fear and ruthlessness under pressure? And when the starship Exodus leaves for distant Aurora, more than 40 light years away, nobody expects this journey to end up answering some of humanity's greatest and oldest questions: Who are we? Are we alone? Where do we come from? This omnibus edition contains the complete Exodus Trilogy. 1. Exodus 2. Aurora 3. Genesis

The year is 2095. It has been decades since World War III has ended. The Earth is in severe ecological decline, the result of several centuries of mistreatment by its human progeny. Within a few decades, a century at most, Earth will no longer be habitable. Pollutants, wars, deep mantle mining, and everyday disregard for our planet have finally taken their toll, and now earthquakes, droughts, volcanic eruptions, and plagues are regular occurrences. Colonies have been established on all the larger bodies of the solar system, but these are small and hardly self-sufficient; it is widely recognized that, in order to save the majority of the species, humanity must find a new homeworld, ready-made for its existence."Ian Fydell's 'Breathing Space, ' the kick-off novel for his ambitious Exodus Trilogy, is an unexpected SF treasure . . . and a cautionary tale in the most traditional sense. Evocative of the best of James Hogan and Robert Heinlein, this character-driven novel introduces us to a raddled, dying Earth and takes us along on a desperate effort to find a new homeworld for humanity."-Floyd Largent, San Antonio, TXProfessional Writer and Editor"Ian Fydell takes modern day Earth issues (environmental degradation, planetary exploration) and puts it all together in a futuristic, sci-fi thriller ... 'Breathing Space' is a page turning, heart pounding book, that makes you wonder just how close to reality we are on planet Earth now and how soon we may all be looking for a little 'Breathing Space.'"-Edward J.

In this thrilling second book of the Earthborn trilogy, Lucas and Asha have survived the decimation of Earth at the hands of the invading Xalans and seek safe haven with their enemy’s true foes, the Sorans. They find a lush planet inhabited by a civilization far more advanced than their own, waging a seemingly endless war against a constantly evolving enemy. The Sorans call the pair of them the “Earthborn” and they’re welcomed as heroes, almost as gods. To an audience of billions, they swear an oath to avenge their fallen planet by aiding the Sorans in their war against Xala. But soon Lucas and Asha find Sora just as dangerous as apocalyptic Earth when they’re targeted by the Fourth Order, a rebel collective who decries them as false prophets and harbingers of further bloodshed. Their friend and turncoat Xalan scientist Alpha believes he’s located someone who can help them turn the tide of the war for good, stranded on a conquered colony planet. But landing on the new world, Lucas and Asha find themselves hunted by a violent, mysterious beast, known only as the Desecrator, let loose by the Xalans. Escaping Earth was only the beginning. As Lucas and Asha quickly learn, the universe has worlds and creatures far more dangerous than anything their home planet could have offered, and their continued survival hinges on gaining new allies they never could have imagined.

Set sixteen years after the events of The Exiled Earthborn, this explosive conclusion of the Earthborn trilogy tells the story of two brothers, the sons of Lucas and Asha, tasked with surviving the Xalan war to ensure the continued existence of the human race. Noah, an orphan from Earth’s last days who, as a child, was smuggled to safety across the stars, is now nearly a man and a leader to the young enclave of Earthborn who reside on Sora. When the tranquility of their settlement is shattered by a shocking assassination attempt, Noah turns to his combative younger brother Erik, Lucas and Asha’s only child by blood, for aid. Their journey takes them to the remnants of a dead planet, an outlaw-infested space station, and back to Sora, whose inhabitants are bracing for a final showdown with the bloodthirsty Xalans. They find themselves facing a new evil: the omnipotent Archon, who is somehow controlling the whole of the Xalan horde, and his bloodthirsty lieutenant, the Black Corsair, who has an unmatched taste for brutality. The Archon, so-called God of the Shadows, has unearthed knowledge that could wipe both Sorans and humans alike from the face of existence. The descendants of the Earthborn must uncover the true nature of the Archon and the Xalans before he burns everything they know and love to ashes.

-The Hunger Games on steroids- -Chris, Amazon reviewer From the ruins of what used to be North America, a new nation was forged by survivors of the Fall. They called this new nation the Covenant, and two centuries later, it is stronger than ever. The Moon people, descendants of lunar colonists who returned to Earth to rebuild it, rule with an iron fist, to ensure their dominance over the original inhabitants, the English. For the Covenant is a nation where a chosen few prosper at the cost of everyone else, and while the English are forced to serve their masters their entire lives, the Moon people have mastered the greatest secret, the secret of life itself. In the Rift Saga we follow Sue and Dave, two English teens sent off to serve, Evan, a soldier and a member of one of the most prominent families of the Moon people, and Mark, the oldest man on Earth, as they find themselves in the midst of events, uncovering conspiracies that have kept the Moon people in power ever since they left their dusty refuge behind. Sooner or later, in different ways, they will all find that lies and deception can only work for so long, and sooner or later the truth will be unveiled. What will happen once the veil of lies unravels? The Rift Saga takes place more than two centuries after the events of Exodus, in a dystopian society forged from the ashes of global disaster. The Complete Rift Saga consists of Rift (Book 1), Covenant (Book 2) and Legacy (Book 3).
