Hello and Happy Publication Day to Aurora Burning by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff.
I was very lucky to receive an ARC copy of Aurora Burning back in February, the wait after Aurora Rising felt so long I couldn’t wait to read it and got stuck straight in. I absolutely loved it, these guys are such a dynamic duo when it comes to writing sci-fi and they never let me down. Now for another yearly wait for the next one!!
About The Book
“First, the bad news: an ancient evil—you know, your standard consume-all-life-in-the-galaxy deal—is about to be unleashed. The good news? Squad 312 is standing by to save the day. They’ve just got to take care of a few small distractions first.
Like the clan of gremps who’d like to rearrange their favorite faces.
And the cadre of illegit GIA agents with creepy flowers where their eyes used to be, who’ll stop at nothing to get their hands on Auri.
Then there’s Kal’s long-lost sister, who’s not exactly happy to see her baby brother, and has a Syldrathi army at her back. With half the known galaxy on their tails, Squad 312 has never felt so wanted.
When they learn the Hadfield has been found, it’s time to come out of hiding. Two centuries ago, the colony ship vanished, leaving Auri as its sole survivor. Now, its black box might be what saves them. But time is short, and if Auri can’t learn to master her powers as a Trigger, the squad and all their admirers are going to be deader than the Great Ultrasaur of Abraaxis IV.
Shocking revelations, bank heists, mysterious gifts, inappropriately tight bodysuits, and an epic firefight will determine the fate of the Aurora Legion’s most unforgettable heroes—and maybe the rest of the galaxy as well.”
What I Thought
I was so excited for the gang to be back together again but once again I AM BROKEN!! The wait for the next book is actually going to be the end of me I just can’t.. ok I need a minute!
Ok squad 312 are out there having adventures trying to save the damn galaxy but things are a bit more treacherous this time like on the life or death side of things and from the beginning absolutely nothing is going smoothly.. man I was on the edge of my seat the entire time I was reading this, I had to read it in short burst because my damn nerves are gone!! Ugh I just love these guys so much I want to take them all home put them in my pocket and keep them all safe cause they’re up against everything!!
As you can expect from Amie and Jay this was a high octane space adventure and an emotional whirlwind that has me run ragged, honestly I need a nap, but I loved it so much.. that ending though.. my heart is in my throat, aw man I can’t believe I have to wait til next year to read more!! I loved it 🚀
