Prologue

It waited. An enormous slab of grey flesh, continent sized, loitering in the empty void of deep space. Distant stars lit its ancient surface, and only the occasional flash of red suggested that it was anything other than a drifting rock. The surface was pitted and corroded, the product of space itself taking its toll. However, it was very much alive, its powerful mind processing all it needed to do, and all it had been commanded to do. It had existed for a long time, more ancient than some of the stars themselves, and had mastered the art of shifting through space, time, and all the areas in between. It had a mission, rules that had to be upheld. Law and order was important, even on a scale such as this. It had seen many worlds and places, and encountered many races, some of whom had matched its abilities. Almost in all cases, those creatures were not the ones that caused problems. They broke no laws, none of the old treaties that had been established for millennia. The younger species, impetuous and rash, seemed to not be able to control themselves. Most could be intimidated into submission, the merest appearance of the creature’s enormous size in their skies enough to dissuade their activities. However, there were a smaller number still that would train their weapons to the sky, fiercely fighting for whatever world they called their own. It held them no ill regard, but law was law. All life was responsible, as soon as it was able to comprehend. Yet, despite its age, and the wisdom that had been accumulated over millions of years, this vast creature was irked.

It had only just only just pacified a non-compliant population, ensuring they were removed from the planet without destroying it. Disappointingly, it was very familiar with this world. The natives called it Earth. The species in question were called humans. Only this time, it had met a particularly resilient human. One who had escaped from its sight. That was a blemish on its otherwise perfect record. It had set plans in motion, determined to not to fail again.

Now, it felt something, an alert, a call to arms. Something was happening on another version of Earth, a different timeline. Without as much as a thought, it translated through space and time, appearing in the relevant solar system. The nearest planet was called Saturn. This version of Earth was in flux, timelines contrary and messy. This situation was not supposed to be. What had happened here?

As it slowly drifted towards the inner worlds, the massive creature spoke to whoever could hear, the vibrations transmitting through the vacuum itself.

ALICIA MCTRAVERS, WHAT HAVE YOU DONE?

re8622: The Last Exodus quickly grabbed my attention. Almost as soon as I started reading the story, I couldn't put it down. I found that the ideas the author put forth were very thought provoking given the turmoil we have seen gradually rise over the last several years. I felt that I could understand th...

SeanSavage: Good plot that moves fairly quickly. Time passage somewhat vague. but not indecipherable. Very good syntax, grammar and punctuation. The story flowed very well, however, the breaks between chapters and the time jumps tended to be slightly confusing at first. I could see where the author was going...

Sammy Styles: It is one of those stories that keeps you on the hook till the last moment. A roll of pictures were piling up and with continuous moving, it was like I was watching a film. The scenes were dramatic with a bit of every emotion. The story contains every essence of mystery, romance and adventur...

Nishant Jain: I felt as if i am watching a movie,not reading a book. The story was definitely interesting. It was more of action than horror for me. There are a few grammatical and spelling errors I came across and at times I found it difficult to imagine some things which the author is trying to convey, but o...
