The Photurians - a hivemind of sentient AIs and machines - were awakened by humanity as part of a complex political trap. But they broke free, evolved, and now the human race is almost finished. Once we spanned dozens of star systems; now only four remain, and Earth is being evacuated.

But the Photes can infect us, and among the thousands rescued from our home world may be enemy agents. Tiny colonies struggle to house the displaced. Our warships are failing. The end of humanity has come.

But on a distant planet shielded from both humanity and the Photurians, one hope may still live. The only person who might be able to intervene. The roboteer. He is trapped in a hell of his own making, and does not know he is needed. And so a desperate rescue mission is begun. But can he be reached in time? Or will he be the last remnant of humanity in the universe?

Press Reviews

  • SFX
    Lamb shares Hamilton's ability to sustain a breakneck narrative where you always want to rush ahead and see what happens next. hugely promising
  • The Guardian
    Roboteer hits the ground running...Lamb handles the politics without resorting to info dumps and in Will has created a sympathetic and well-rounded hero
  • Sci-Fi Now
    Lamb's got so many ideas that they almost spill off the pages, and telling the story from both sides is a smart way of balancing the argument
  • Starburst Magazine
    Alex Lamb has crafted a terrific debut novel. If the subsequent volumes are as good as this one then Lamb will surely be prominent in many an SF fan's bookcase
  • CRIME TIME
    Rewarding and with a dash of interstellar politics that echo our own reality and would not be amiss in contemporary spy thrillers.
  • POPULAR SCIENCE
    Exodus is full throttle, rip-roaring space opera, with a side helping of virtual reality and biotech.
