Synopsis

'Aurora Rising is to sci-fi what Stranger Things is to the cinema of the eighties - a fusion of everything you love about the genre that adds up into something completely fresh.' Samantha Shannon







From the New York Times and internationally bestselling authors of The Illuminae Files comes a new science fiction epic...











The year is 2380, and the graduating cadets of Aurora Academy are being assigned their first missions. Star pupil Tyler Jones is ready to recruit the squad of his dreams, but his own boneheaded heroism sees him stuck with the dregs nobody else in the Academy would touch:







A cocky diplomat with a black belt in sarcasm



A sociopath scientist with a fondness for shooting her bunkmates



A smart-ass tech-whiz with the galaxy's biggest chip on his shoulder



An alien warrior with anger management issues



A tomboy pilot who's totally not into him, in case you were wondering







And Ty's squad isn't even his biggest problem that'd be Aurora Jie-Lin O'Malley, the girl he's just rescued from interdimensional space. Trapped in cryo-sleep for two centuries, Auri is a girl out of time and out of her depth. But she could be the catalyst that starts a war millions of years in the making, and Tyler's squad of losers, discipline-cases and misfits might just be the last hope for the entire galaxy.







NOBODY PANIC.

Customer Reviews

If you didn’t already know, I AM OBSESSED with The Illuminae Files. It was a truly brilliant series that kept me at the edge of my seat, filled with twists and murderous AI and if you haven’t read it, you should. This is why, when Amie and Jay announced Aurora Rising and the start of a new series, I WAS OVER THE MOON! In retrospect, I probably expected too much from this series because Aurora Rising ended up being a huge let-down. I feel bad even saying this because I WANTED to enjoy this book more than anything – with the beautiful cover and the premise and THE TRAILER. Not to mention, this was Amie and Jay and AAAH. Here is why I (very sadly) didn’t enjoy this book: 1. The Characters: One of the BIGGEST areas of intrigue in this book was that these were supposed to be a rat-rag group of characters that nobody wanted to be around, weren’t really ‘heroes,’ and weren’t really to be trusted and so they were stuck together and given a tiny mission. For some reason, squad 312 just didn’t work. The line on the cover of the ARC says, ‘they aren’t the heroes we deserve,’ but it certainly felt like it anyway. They were all noble and JUST SO TALENTED IN THEIR SPECIFIC FIELDS, if only their interpersonal skills were a little off-course. I actually wanted them to just be a mediocre group of kids pushed together that managed to make something work, but these were ALL STELLAR GOLDEN-BOY/ HERO TYPES with an unneeded flair for the dramatic and nicknames that just sounded awkward and I somehow feel cheated out of what I was promised – an actually different saving the universe story, in terms of the characters. 2. THE PLOT: This felt very all over the place to me. With The Illuminae Files, there was always some purpose with where the characters were heading, a timeline and some structure, but this book was very faith-based. I don’t think I’ve ever read faith-based sci-fi before, and it all just seemed like a really big risk for something they didn’t know anything about. Which is the point of faith, I know, and I love that the authors tried something new, but it just didn’t work for me personally. HOWEVER, AURORA RISING WASN’T ALL BAD – IT GOT GOOD AT THE END. Here is what I liked: 1. THE REVEAL AT THE ENDING: I’m glad this wasn’t really a cliffhanger, but after an entire 500+ page book of feeling adrift with no concrete plot, I really enjoyed how this all came together in the end. 2. CAT: I didn’t like her much through the book, BUT I BECAME A FAN AT THE END. I loved her last POV in the book and the tragedy and WOW. WITH NO SPOILERS, LET ME JUST SAY THAT THAT WAS SPECTACULAR WRITING AND PLOTTING. Will I be reading book two? YES! With the hope that it makes up for book one
