Textul de pe ultima copertă

Hundreds of years ago, the last humans left Earth. After centuries wandering empty space, humanity was welcomed—mostly—by the species that govern the Milky Way, and their generational journey came to an end.
But this is old history. Today the Exodus Fleet is a living relic, a place many are from but few outsiders have seen. When a disaster rocks this already fragile community, those Exodans who have not yet left for alien cities struggle to find their way in an uncertain future. Among them are a mother, a young apprentice, an alien academic, a caretaker for the dead, a man searching for a place to belong, and an archivist, who ensures no one’s story is forgotten. Each has their own voice, but all seek answers to inescapable questions:
Why remain among the stars when there are habitable worlds within reach? And what is the purpose of a ship that has reached its destination?


“This is a superb work from one of the genre’s rising stars.” — Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“I deeply appreciate Chambers’ science fiction, and I really enjoyed this novel. Quiet, kind, character-driven books are wonderfully restful. Delightfully soothing.” —
“This series is a rare gem within the sci-fi genre [...] Chambers’ writing pulls you in, making it impossible not to imagine living in her brilliantly crafted universe.” — POMEmag
“Chambers’ books are celebrated for their warmth, compassion, and diverse characters, but it’s also worth noting that her worldbuilding is top-notch; it’s a delight to spend more time in this universe.” — B&N Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog
