The Valleys weren’t real – they were inside a carved out asteroid on a centuries-long mission though interstellar space to establish a colony on a new planet.
But when they arrive at their destination they find that someone got there before them and when a terrifying enemy attacks Dawn, Arla is forced to take command.
With little support from her fellow engineers or officers, she must go up against a ruthless federation seeking a renegade pilot sheltering in Dawn’s brig. Should she give him up to certain death or risk the lives of everyone she loves for the sake of a stranger?
Dawn: Exodus is the first book in the now complete Robot Empire series of galaxy-sized adventures. If you like fast-paced science fiction in the classic mould of Asimov, Clarke, Bradbury and Bear, you’ll love Kevin Partner’s space adventure series.
