Exodus by M. R. Parsons - Review (ARC)


 ❋  
I received an ARC from Reedsy Discovery in exchange for an honest review.

Exodus by M. R. Parsons is a fantastic new science fiction series opener. Berto's story reeled me in right from the first few pages and didn't let go until the very end. Roberto had a rough life growing up, but now with his past behind him he is ready to take on a new adventure. When another tragedy strikes, he has no choice but to leave Earth and he finds himself right in the middle of a war that has been raging for eons. He's gotten more than he bargained for in terms of adventure, and even revenge. He might be able to help bring an end to the war, if only he can trust himself and his recruiters.

One of the things I loved the most about this novel is the fact that it drops us right into action. Everything comes head on at the cast of characters and us. It never feels rushed or confusing in the wrong kind of way as it feels like we're right there in the same boat with everyone else. The novel is fast paced with quite a bit of action, but it doesn't feel rushed but instead engaging. There are also plenty of complex and futuristic ideas, but there written in such a way that doesn't make the reader feel out of the loop. My only real issue is that I never felt terribly connected with the characters. They're all written well, but it seemed to me as that I was busy taking in everything else before the characters themselves, if that makes sense.

Finally, I highly recommend Exodus by M. R. Parsons to fans of high speed science fiction, especially sci-fi that's a bit on the harder side. It feels like I really flew through this novel and just devoured every crumb the author gave us. I'm honestly looking forward to whatever comes next in for these characters.


My review is also on Reedsy Discovery and Goodreads.
