Synopsis

Our heroes are back… kind of. From the bestselling co-authors of the Illuminae Files comes the second book in the epic series about a squad of misfits, losers, and discipline cases who just might be the galaxy’s best hope for survival.

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.

Thoughts

Copy of book cover - 2020-04-20T121652.203This has definitely got to be one of my most anticipated releases for 2020. Aurora Burning is the second instalment in the Aurora Cycle, and book one was one of my favourite books of last year. We’re back following the same characters in Aurora Rising, and this time the stakes are even higher. I completely adored the first book as well as the Illuminae files by these authors, so I’m absolutely dying to get my hands on this book. The story so far has been full of action and banter and I couldn’t put it down. I think this is a highly anticipated release for loads of people, and I’m so excited for it to be released next month. If you haven’t had the chance to check out book one in the series I’d highly recommend it. I currently have a request in for an E-ARC via Netgalley, so if it gets accepted I’ll be abandoning everything to read this one. It’s the perfect story to get lost in, especially if like me you’re stuck at home during quarantine. Aurora Burning is released May 5th by Rock the Boat.
