Exodus TowersThe Exodus Towers, by Jason M. Hough, releases next Tuesday, but you can get a jump on it today with Suvudu’s Fifty Page Friday excerpt.  This second book in the Dire Earth Trilogy is garnering a 4+ stars rating over on Goodreads early reviews.  Its predecessor, The Darwin Elevator, made the New York Times best seller list, which is quite an accomplishment for a debut novel.  Hough has taken known elements in the scifi genre and twisted them in an imaginative and different direction.  Characters are so alive and the narrative so compelling, the story jumps off the page and grabs you.
