My name is Clo Sterling of the New Exodus humans. If anyone is out there, please respond.”


For Cloelia Sterling, one planet has never been enough. When her curiosity leads her to send a message into deep space, she discovers that life does indeed exist on other planets... and not all of it is friendly. With the help of a colorful crew, Clo is launched on an interplanetary quest to save not just her people, but countless others across the solar system. 


An enticing literary galaxy, brimming with danger and filled with lovable characters. Exodus is overflowing with adventure and a strong sense of friendship.
