Record of a Spaceborn Few

Record of a Spaceborn Few

From the ground, we stand. From our ship, we live. By the stars, we hope

Centuries after the last humans left Earth, the Exodus Fleet is a living relic, a place many are from but few outsiders have seen. Humanity has finally been accepted into the galactic community, but while this has opened doors for many, those who have not yet left for alien cities fear that their carefully cultivated way of life is under threat.

Tessa chose to stay home when her brother Ashby left for the stars, but has to question that decision when her position in the Fleet is threatened.

Kip, a reluctant young apprentice, itches for change but doesn't know where to find it.

Sawyer, a lost and lonely newcomer, is just looking for a place to belong.

When a disaster rocks this already fragile community, those Exodans who still call the Fleet their home can no longer avoid the inescapable question:

What is the purpose of a ship that has reached its destination?

    (3.5) I found this book incredibly relaxing and comforting. Not what I would expect to say about a Sci-fi but Chamber's universe is so wholesome.If you enjoy contemporary "slice of life" type of books...

    Here's the part where you think I'm going to eat my words. But I don't think I have to: think of it as being able to love Star Wars, and The Empire Strikes Back, but not Return of the Jedi. In fact, i...

    I am soooooo bummed. The first book in this series is easily one of my favourite books in the entire world, the second book wasn't quite as good, but I still adored it. This one, however, I really str...

    Oddly enough, I had to revise my original rating on book 2 down to accommodate my feelings for this one.Whoa, right? Well, I found I liked this one more than the second, but that's just the thing. I d...

    Each book in this series is beautiful in its own way, but RoaSF just really hit in me in a particular way that I can't explain. There's so much humanity in Chambers' books, and while very little actua...
