πŸ“š Escaping Exodus: A Novel
by Nicky Drayden
β €
This is my first space opera but definitely not the last. This book is mind boggling! I am unflinchingly drawn to the oddities and struggle of the lead protagonist. There’s also serious messages on sexuality, duty, and morality.
β €
I could not imagine getting not one but nine sessions of β€œthe talk” on sex! Talk about uncomfortable situations. πŸ˜… I also could not imagine interacting with beasts and fighting the obligations of putting duty before self. I don’t want ruin this one for you, but wow! I aim to binge this one for the remainder of the day!
β €
Synopsis: Escaping Exodus is a story of a young woman named Seske Kaleigh, heir to the command of a biological, city-size starship carved up from the insides of a spacefaring beast. Her clan has just now culled their latest ship and the workers are busy stripping down the bonework for building materials, rerouting the circulatory system for mass transit, and preparing the cavernous creature for the onslaught of the general populous still in stasis. It’s all a part of the cycle her clan had instituted centuries agoβ€”excavate the new beast, expand into its barely-living carcass, extinguish its resources over the course of a decade, then escape in a highly coordinated exodus back into stasis until they cull the next beast from the diminishing herd.
β €
And of course there wouldn’t be much of a story if things didn’t go terribly, terribly wrong.
